This week we have been learning all about 3-D shapes. Class One explored 3-D shapes that we could find around the home and classroom and we talked about which shapes we knew whilst building some magnificent model rockets and houses. We could talk about the 3-D shapes cone, cylinder, cube, cuboid…
We have been worked very hard in maths, learning how to use and draw part-whole models!

Maths Reasoning and Problem Solving
Class 2 loves problem-solving!
We are getting really good at giving clear explanations for our answers and giving reasons for our problem-solving solutions. We know how important it is to be able to explain how we came up with our answer.
We Love To Learn
So far this week in Class 2: We have written and illustrated our own holiday postcards. Looked at things which are living and not living and found ways to sort them into categories. We have practised counting and Year 1 have used numicon to help them.
Class One have enjoyed lots of numbers, shape, space and measure learning in the past few weeks.
Using ten frames has helped us to visualise and play with arrangements of numbers. What does 5 look like? It can be a 4 and a 1 or a 3 and a 2. The more we know and use the numbers and their…
