This term we have been working very hard in our Maths lessons. We have been focussing on our understanding of number, including; number facts, place value, doubling and representing numbers in different ways. As you can see from the photos we have been using lots of different pieces of maths equipment to help us with our understanding. In place value lessons we have been using tens rods and ones cubes to make 2-digit numbers as well as using number lines to show where a number is placed.
This term we have also enjoyed a science workshop run by Set Point. We took part in lots of different activities that were all linked to different types of forces. We experimented with rockets of different sizes and had to decide what type of rocket went the furthest and why. We also looked at spinning tops, we attached bluetac to different parts of the spinning top to change the way it moved. One of our favourite activities was building a ramp for a marble which then bounced on a trampoline and into a pot. We had to make the ramp ourselves deciding how tall and how far away it had to be to complete its journey.
This term we have been enjoying taking part in forest school. We have been working on our fine motor skill using the hammer and nails to create our own models. After collecting different natural objects we then enjoyed painting and decorating our found objects using lots of different colours and patterns. We really enjoyed lighting the campfire and toasting marshmallows. Some of us also made bracelets by dying string using natural dyes and thing plaiting them.
