During the first few weeks back after the Easter holidays we have continued to look at multiplication. The children have learnt how to use arrays to multiply and also practised their times tables. We have also looked at division where the children have shared objects to divide.
We started the half term by revisiting positional and directional language. The children helped Pirate Tom find the missing objects from his ship. In Special Interest Week we went orienteering in the school grounds and the children made their own treasure maps. They wrote instructions on how to find the treasure using the language they had learnt including left, right and turn.
We have revisited place value in this Maths this week. The children have been identifying the place value of numbers up to 100 and beyond.
For 'Share A Story Day' we made pirate games to link to our English topic. The children worked with a partner to either make a board game or a pirate version of snakes and ladders such as 'swords and planks'. On Tuesday afternoon the children played their games with Reception class. They did such a good job explaining the rules and giving the younger instructions on how to play.
