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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
