This week in maths the children have worked very hard to learn and understand how to compare numbers and amounts with 10.
During Computing with Mr Baddhan, Year 1 Puffins have been tallying up their favourite items to create pictographs.
The children created a tally for the following items:
► Favourite farm animal
► Favourite material
► Favourite pet
► Favourite minibeast
They then used Purple Mash’s 2Count program to add data into a pictograph.
The children then created a pictograph by gathering their own tally data.
Today the Puffins have been using all the taught strategies of how to put subtraction into action. They have all chosen the correct method for the questions and used their knowledge to complete all the problems. I was very impressed with how most children were able to create their own number lines to support their subtracting.
The children have returned eager to learn and we have started with the topic of shape in Maths. The children have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties.
Today the Puffins have being working their socks off during maths. They had to order numicon counting backwards, complete missing number sequences counting backwards in both written numeral order. Fantastic work Puffins keep it up!
Today the Puffins have been demonstrating their amazing understanding of fractions (halves and quarters) using different representations. Well done Puffins for persevering with this hard work.
Today Puffins children have been learning how to find a quarter of a shape. They were also able to identify when shapes weren’t quarters and state why.
This week the children have been practising their weighing skills and using all the important vocabulary.
As part of our Maths topic for this week the Puffins are learning about measuring using non standard measurements. They had great fun measuring the playground in steps and using cubes to measure equipment in the classroom.
After a fantastic Christmas the Puffins have returned to school eager to learn. We are focusing on shape in Maths this week. The children have worked fantastically with their partners learning to identify 3D and 2D shapes and their properties.
