Hands-on Maths and Exploring Texture!
To take advantage of being back in the classroom, we have been doing hands-on, practical maths! This means at the start of every lesson, we include practical activities using lots of different resources.
These practical activities will help to cement our understanding of basic mathematical concepts as well as creating an exciting, interactive environment!
For Art this week, we discussed that texture was all around us and could be categorised in different ways such as smooth, rough, prickly, coarse and bumpy. The children were then given the opportunity to explore different textures found in the classroom and recorded what they found with pencil rubbings.
We hope to continue the practical nature of our learning next week when we learn about money in Mathematics and how to translate texture onto a 2D shape to create a 3D image.
