Below is a list of the maths strategies that we use in school. I hope that it is useful!
Eco Bus and Kingfisher Island
We spent the morning on the Eco Bus and Kingfisher Island. We will be using this experience to write recounts for the rest of the week. We enjoyed a lovely story on the Eco bus. The deer didn’t make an appearance but we kept our eyes peeled! We did however see the statues of a swan and heron.
We have been carrying on our topic of the Romans. We used our fingers and paint to create our own mosaic’s. we learnt about the detail and how rich people would have them in their houses to show off how wealthy they were.
Finding 2D shapes in real life
3.2 enjoyed finding 2D shapes in real life. We took photos on the iPads as evidence of the shapes we found. What shapes can you see?
We learnt all about the Roman army and made our own Roman shields! We used cardboard and paint to make them.
Virtual museum trip
The British Museum took us on a Roman adventure. We took part in a quiz and different challenges to find out about different artefacts.
We are learning all about instructions in English. Instructions are all around us, especially in recipe books! We read the book ‘Mr Wolf and the three bears’ and made cheesy snip snaps from the book.
Some of the skills we used were mixing, grating and measuring.
In English we have been learning all about Fables. We acted out the fable ‘The Lion and the Mouse’. We learnt that the moral of this story is to be kind, what a great way to start of the year.
