Maths - Using the part-whole model
In maths the past week, the Year One children looked at splitting numbers in different ways by using the part-whole model. At the end of the week they began solving addition calculations. The Year Two children used the part-whole model to look at addition fact families by changing the order of the numbers to make different calculations.
Geography - Looking at compass point directions
As a class we explored the four compass points. we then planned a route suing the compass points to travel to the mugger. The children were brilliant at identifying North, East, South and West.
R.E. - The Creation Story
Everyone in the class made a plate to resemble one of the days from the creation story. We then ordered the story as well.
Our class virtue is courage and during the first week of school we looked at the stroy of The Owl who was afraid of the dark.
This is how our children define courage...
The children drew pictures of when they showed courage and thought of some lovely meanings for courage to go onto our canvas which will be displayed ins school. We also wrote scriptures from teh bible which explained courage.
Topic - Geography
Our first topic is about our local geography and first looked at landmarks we find in Pudsey and teh children drew them. We went on a walk to explore human and physical features around our school grounds, the chidlren were great at identifying these features.
Our next lesson was to make an aerial view of our school; in groups we went around the school and labelled on an outline where all of the classrooms are and other important rooms and office. We explored what a key was and made simple symbols for certain features in our school's grounds.
As a class we looked at Digimaps which allows you to look at maps. We used it to focus on Pudsey and looked at the symbols used on the maps.
The Year One children have been looking at representing numbers with objects, marks, pictures and exploring resources such as ten frames and number tracks. We also looked at reading, writing and ordering numbers to 10 as numerals and as words. The have worked so well at applying their learning into independent tasks in maths provision time after tehir focussed task.
The Year Two children have been consolidating to represent numbers to 100 using base ten and ten frames and counters. The have also recapped counting in 2's, 5's, 10's and 3's in various ways and trying to count backwards in 2's, 5's and 10's from any number. The chidlren explored number patterns and had to explain their thiking through pictures.
For the past three weeks, we have been learning about Jack and The Beanstalk. The children looked at nouns, verbs and adjectives and the Year two children looked at expanded noun phrases. we role played the story, unpicked the characters from the story, the Year Two children came up with a different ending for the story and then the children retold the story for their main writing piece for the last week.
