Repeating Patterns.

Today we have been learning about repeating patterns.

We used different objects to make our patterns.

What objects would you use to make a pattern?

Farming Friday.

Today we made ‘Hidden Vegetable Pizza’.

We chopped up lots of our favourite vegetables and put them into the sauce and liquidised it so no body knows they’re in there.

Which vegetables would you put into your sauce?

Coins.

Today we have been learning about coins.

We have been counting carefully and matching the number of coins to match the price . We have been looking carefully to check whether it’s a 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p or 50p that we need.

Kippers Toy Box.

Today we used our socks that we’ve all brought in, to create a ‘Sock Thing’, just like the one in Kippers Toy Box. We can use him to help us retell the story.

Have you brought a sock in, to make one?

Farming Friday.

Today we have been planting broad beans in seed trays then went into the green house to repot our garlic because it’s growing too big for the pots they are in.

We have also been making fruit salad, using instructions from our maths pictogram, to tell us how many pieces of fruit we need.

What fruit would you put in a fruit salad?

3D Shapes.

Today we have been learning about 3D shapes.

We used different materials to make 3D shapes and remembered to use 3D shape names when we were talking about them.

We used iPads to record all the words we were using to describe our shapes.

Pumpkin Experiment.

Today we went into the greenhouse to check on the progress of our pumpkin experiment.

We are growing two sets of seeds, one small and one big. We are going to see which seed will grow the biggest pumpkin.

Which seed do you think will make the biggest pumpkin?

Pictograms.

Our new learning is all about pictograms.

We did a survey on what was our favourite toy and then recorded the results onto our pictograms to show which was the favourite toy and which was the least favourite.

What was your favourite toy?

Mathletics

Well done to Isabella, Zoe, Imogen, Olivia, and Taya who have been challenging themselves with Mathletics and have achieved lots of certificates.

How many can you get?

3D Shapes.

Today we explored how to make a model of our favourite toys using the 3D shapes.

We then used iPads to record us speaking about what shapes we were using, remembering to use all of the new 3D shape words that we have learnt.

What 3D shape words have you learnt?
