This week in Maths we have been busy working on our number formation and matching numerals to their written numbers, finding one more and one less than any given number up to 100 and estimating amounts. We found that if you group objects together in 5s or 10s then it makes estimation of large amounts easier.
For our Rainbow Challenges this week we had a chance to sort recyclable materials into different recycling bins, write subtraction number sentences, count farm animals and put the information into a graph, write about different things that we can find on a farm, program a Beebot to move around a farm and write our own programming instructions and play a game of 'I-Spy' with our friends. We have discussed the importance of trying new activities and not being afraid of challenging ourselves and are all expected to try all six challenges each week. Our teachers have started giving us a checklist, which we get highlighted each time we complete an activity, to help us to take greater responsibility and independence for our own learning. We are all looking forward to sharing our Rainbow Challenges with you at our parent's afternoon on Tuesday 17th October at 1:30.
