The children really enjoyed celebrating 'Real Life Maths Day' this week. They had hands on experience using money. We learnt how to count 1p's and some of us learnt to count 2p's.
Picture 1 I learnt to count money into a purse.
Picture 2 We used the 1p's to count them out.
Picture 3 We counted the 1p's and remembered to stop at 6p.
Picture 4 We checked people had enough money.
Picture 5 We looked at the prices of things.
Picture 6 I made 5p using a 2p, 2p and a 1p!

Wow!

In maths, we have been looking at the size of objects and people, we have been using the language tall and short. We then used non-standard measures to measure the animals and our friends!

We have been measuring!

We have been measuring! 1 "the butterfly is 5 cubes!"
We have been measuring! 2 "TEN!"
We have been measuring! 3 "one, two, three, four..."
We have been measuring! 4 "Can I measure how tall you are?"
We have been measuring! 5 "You go first"
We have been measuring! 6 "Lets use hands and feet!"

Measuring Using Cubes

I measured the elephant using cubes I started right from the bottom and went right to the top, I then counted and he was 20 cubes tall!

This week we have read the book 'Cupcake', the story is all about a cupcake who is upset because he is plain, boring and vanilla without any toppings... he tries all different toppings such as pickles and spaghetti! A candle comes along and also feels upset because he is just a plain candle... the story ends with the candle becoming the cake's topping!

Experimenting & Investigating

 

This week, following our 'Elmer' topic, we have been experimenting with colours!

The children have absolutely loved investigating and finding out what happens when colours are mixed...

It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work!

It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 1 We all had a zip-lock bag...
It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 2 Then we chose two colours...
It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 3 We worked together...
It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 4 To fill our bags...
It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 5 Then we swapped over...
It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 6 And helped our partner...
It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 7 We were ever so careful...
It's true what they say... team work makes the dream work! 8 We didn't spill a drop!

Ready... Set... MIX!!!

What a wonderful start to the Autumn term. It has been enjoyable to see so many happy children coming into school looking ever so smart! The children have adapted to the new routines and have taken it all in their stride! I have seen some wonderful, positive friendships blossom and children working together. We have been ever so busy - take a look at just some of the things we have been doing!

This week we have been learning about 'The Rainbow Fish' - the fish who wouldn't share his shiny, sparkly scales, so he had no friends. Then when he began to share, he felt a much better person and everyone wanted to play with him. I have seen lots of children in class R being a fantastic friend and sharing with others - which is lovely to see! 
Picture 1 First we had to decorate our rainbow fish...
Picture 2 Then we had to cut around the outside...
Picture 3 A little bit more cutting...
Picture 4 Then we stuck a stick on the back!
To end the week, the children were rewarded with their ALWAYS badges, these badges mean that they ALWAYS do the right thing. I have seen lots of children doing the right thing at the right time - they definitely deserve to wear their badge with pride!!
