In maths we have been learning about the relationships between numbers and that addition and subtraction are the inverse of each other. The children have been using the resources and their knowledge of number facts to find number families.
In English the children have been learning how to improve their descriptive sentences by adding adjectives and adverbs. They have also been experimenting moving the words around in the sentence to see what works well.
The children have been practicing giving instructions to travel between planets. This is in preparation for writing algorithms to programme bee bots next week as part of their learning in ICT.
The children have been designing their own coins this week. We have had some very creative ideas. The children then made their coins out of clay.
This week we have been looking at instructional writing.
First we followed a set of instructions to make some shortbread biscuits for the queen. We had to taste test them of course! They were delicious!
We also ordered a set of instructions and added verbs and adverbs to describe how to do it.
We then wrote a set of instructions on how to make a clay coin.
The children have been very busy developing their fluency in counting in tens, twos, fives and threes.
We have recently found a pen pal called Annie. She has been learning about the Royal family in Belgium and saw that we had been learning about the Queen of England. She wanted to know more about our Royal family so we have been very busy writing letters to Annie to share with her what we have learnt about the Queen and her family.
In maths we have been learning about place value. The children have been using Numicon and Dienes to make numbers all the way up to 1000.
Later in the week we were partitioning numbers and looking at different ways in which this could be done.
The children all looked fabulous in their outfits.
The day began with a visit from Her Majesty The Queen. The children greeted her with a bow or a curtsy before asking her lots of great questions.
They then participated in a range of activities including, making a shield, designing a crown, building a Lego castle, drawing a portrait of the Queen and making a Jam sandwich.
In the afternoon they enjoyed twirling their partners around in a dance.
