Autumn 2

 

2D and 3D shape

 

We started this half term off by identifying 2D shapes. The children really enjoyed recognising and labelling the different properties of these shapes. Some of the children made 2D shape robots.

We then moved on to looking at 3D shapes. The children sorted them out into different groups and used the shapes to make models.

The 'Stars' group became 'Shape Detectives' and went on a 3D shape hunt around school. They found lots of interesting objects that are 3D. They used an iPad to take their own photographs.

Sequencing and Sorting

 

This week we have looked at sequencing and sorting. Each group had different objects that they had to sort in different ways. Some children made repeating patterns.

Fractions

This week in Maths we have looked at wholes, halves and quarters. I was so impressed with what the children already knew about fractions! Mason told the class all about quarters after watching his Grandma cut up a strawberry into four pieces.

 

We used a chocolate cake and cut it into halves and quarters so that we could see all of the equal parts.

 

Fraction activities:

  • Colouring halves and quarters of different shapes
  • Making a pizza fraction (filling in half of the pizza with a favourite topping)

Time

 

Over the past few weeks the children have been learning all about Time. So far we have made our own clocks to learn about the big hand and small hand, read different clocks to show o'clock and half past times and learnt to order the days of the week.

 

The Stars group worked with Mrs Turner to make their own clock in the hall. They used the hands to show different o'clock times. It was lots of fun.

Capacity

 

We have practised reading the scales on different containers to find out how much juice they will hold for Goldilocks to take to the Three Little Bears. The children have been reading scales in ml.

The children have explored which container would hold the most water. They used containers of different sizes and shapes and had access to water so that they could investigate freely. The children had to decide which container had the biggest capacity. They used post-it notes to record how many cups it took to fill each container and read the scale to find out how many ml.
