Thank you for sending in photographs of your children during celebrations. The children enjoyed sharing their pictures and memories of celebrations. We used our pictures to create a timeline to show when different events happened, including when we were born. We talked about events that happen every year, such as our birthdays and some which only happen once, like when we are born. We also created a calendar to show the different events that happen every year and then picked two to compare.
In maths, we have been solving problems involving addition and subtraction. We started by doing a colour by numbers but to work out the colours, we had to add or subtract. We then moved onto solving word problems. The children picked different resources that they could use to help them, such as cubes for counting, a 100 square or a number line.
In Literacy, we have been trying to improve our work. We read our stories from this week, talked about what was good about them and how to make them even better. We then re-wrote part of our story using our amendments.
In ICT, Year 1 and 2 made repeating algorithms with motion blocks and learned to control more than one sprite at once. They then made their sprites have a dance party.
Next week in IPC, we will be starting our technology work and helping to plan our Halloween celebration. We have lots of exciting things to help make.
I hope you have a great weekend.
