P5a made the most of the great weather we had today and went outside to practise our estimating and measuring skills! We had to find different things in the playground, estimate how long it would be and then choose between a ruler, measuring tape and meter stick to measure it.
We made skeletons of 3D shapes to look at their properties. It was hard to get the plasticine to hold it together. Then we made nets of 3D shapes to look at the faces.
This week in our maths we have been counting forwards and backwards in tens all the way up to 100. We are also learning about odd and even numbers and counting in twos. We are getting really good at knowing our number bonds to 10 and figuring out all the different ways we can make a number.
We have been working on knowing the number that comes before and after a given number. At our written station we were writing in the missing number on our ‘number ladder’.
At our ICT station we were working on ‘Line em Up’ app and were ordering numbers in the correct order.
Today in maths we were working with the ‘rick racks’ to help us with our number bonds, doubles, near doubles and counting in groups. We were also working on our five patterns.
