Year 1 - Making arrays
We had great fun yesterday (04.02.19) exploring how to make arrays. Then we wrote a number sentence to match our array.

During our maths lessons we have been finding out about halves and quarters, including filling containers half and quarter full. We have split objects into quarters and used the bead strings to count in 10s, forwards, backwards and starting from any number. Today (30.01.19) we investigated what animals Noah could have seen in the ark, if he counted 12 legs go past him. We used our own drawings, pictures and plastic animals to work out the sorts of animals Noah could have seen. This led us to write number sentences to make 12.
Homework (30.01.19)- The children should bring a letter and homework sheet in their bookbags today. The homework is counting in 10s. See the attached letter for more details.
Year 2 Maths - Mr Gunn
Today (14/1/19) we had fun with fractions, with a special 'No limits, no fear' maths lesson where Y2 had to build fractions from objects in the classroom, and then write the matching fraction(s) they had built on their whiteboard. No restrictions, other than the numbers they could count to. As you can see, they went considerably beyond the 1/4 1/2 3/4 of their first week of fractions last week ... and yes, I was impressed.

It was lovely to see the children coming into maths on Monday morning holding their shape homework that they had completed over half term. We talked about where they had found the shapes around their homes and we all found the pyramid the trickiest to find! Some children created models using 3D shapes. There is one more on Finland class page. The children can still complete the task on mymaths that was set before half term.
