During our maths lesson, we have been looking at how to partition a number. We looked at our tens and ones and discovered that.....36 = 3 tens and 6 ones, 14 = 1 ten and 4 ones. In groups we used the dienes blocks to help us. We have practised partitioning with a range of numbers from 0-10. We also used a number line to help us jump to numbers that are greater than and less than.
In English, we looked at the story 'The Highway Rat' by Julia Donaldson. We acted the story out and created a story map. We thought about the characters feelings and spoke about how we should treat our friends in school. We then went on to innovate 'The Highway Rat' and we created 'The Highway Dog' as a class. The Highway Dog wore a red cape, blue boots and had a collar that said 'Pup'. We went on to describe the adventures the dog had with his friends.
In our Christ Church Curriculum Safari, we have introduced our new topic called 'Top Hats and Tails', where we have been discussing what it would have been like in the Victorian era. We have had discussions about what school would have been like for our grandparents when they were little and compared it to what we think of school. For our homework we made Victorian style toys, we made boats. They are now on display in our classroom.
