This week in maths we have been concentrating on our 2D and 3D shapes also positional directions and ordinal numbers. We have had great for exploring how to group shapes and learning all the names and properties of both the 2D and 3D shapes. The children have especially enjoyed racing!
What a great first full week for the Puffins, we have learnt all about sorting using a variety of ways in maths, practised our HFW’s and handwriting and learnt our Talk for Writing focus book Going on a Bear Hunt. Finally today the children have discussed at length new beginnings in regards to changes to their lives and others. After we talked bout our choices and the impact these have when we start new ventures, in particular good and bad choices.
‘If you make a bad choice you will not be happy’ Millie
‘Making good choices means you get good things’ Oliver
‘If you make a bad choice you can change it back to a god choice’ Jessica
‘Good choices in school means you could get a silver or gold card’ Amaya
To continue our money topic for maths this week Puffin class have been purchasing lots of different products from Miss Coghlan’s shop. The children had to count out the correct amounts and ensure they were selecting the correct coins and using their fantastic adding skills too.
Also thank you to Amelia and her dad for sharing their old money with us, the Puffins loved looking at them.
The Puffins have started their new maths topic on Money today. They have discussed all the different types of coins there is and how to distinguish one from the other. Once they had a good understanding of the coins they were able to independently sort the coins with their partner.
Today the Puffins have kick started their first week on multiplication by learning how to breakdown and understand the number sentence in to groups. They had a fantastic understanding right from the start.
The Puffins have had a very hectic afternoon doing maths. Continuing our time unit we today focused on the measurement of time, how long 1min is, an hour etc. To do this we challenged ourselves to complete a variety of tasks with 1, 2 or 3mins. The hardest task was how many laps of the playground in 3mins, after 2mins Jani was exhausted but he preserved and managed a grand total of 3 laps.
