The Foxes have been learning a lot about length this week. We can measure in centimetres and metres, and we are really good at estimating. We used our measuring skills to mark out the dimensions of some of our favourite dinosaurs. It was amazing to see just how big a T-Rex was!
Look how clever the children are in FS2 at collecting and recording data. They chose their own sandwich fillings and recorded it on a chart. They then worked out how many cheese, jam and ham sandwiches we needed to make for Captain Beastlie’s Birthday Party.
The Daffodils had a super time visiting their local shop. They looked carefully at the items that they could afford with their 50p. They had amazing manners when paying at the till. Of course, they enjoyed eating their delicious treats afterwards!
We had a special delivery in FS2, a letter and treasure chest from Captain Beastlie himself! He asked us to explore his coins, we are now super at recognising different coins and matching them to amounts.
The Leopards have been working on estimating and comparing area. They were set a task to work out how much space 7 flower beds would take up in our community garden and how much space would be left. Their estimations and calculations were very close.
At the end of this week’s maths topic, The Hedgehogs enjoyed preparing to teach fractions! They had to make the problem with concrete objects, write the explanation and then come up to the front and teach the class. Well done!
