Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

No Pens Day

We celebrated this national event on Thursday.

We completed lots of practical activities and did a lot of talking to each other.  We also tried to remember what our friend had said.

We played "Alien Guess Who" where we described aliens and then role played being aliens.

During Maths we used Diennes Apparatus to add tens and ones.  We also practised making sequences by passing a ball to a friend who had to say the next number in the sequence.  The children really enjoyed trying to crack the secret code (work out the jumps in the sequence) to join the maths team.

    

In the afternoon, we explored a variety of objects focusing on the materials they were made from. We then sorted the objects based on this and discussed what properties each material had. We learnt lots of scientific vocabulary.
