We have been enjoying lots of sunny outdoor play, making obstacle courses indoors and outdoors practicing our movement skills, counting out requested items and exploring patterns in our environment.
This week P4/5 have been exploring fractions! We practised cutting paper strips into equal sized pieces. We also wrote the unit fraction on each piece of paper.
We also tried iterating our rods to find different ways to make the whole!
This week P4/5 were practising their note taking skills whilst watching a video about the life of Alexander Graham Bell. Working with their cooperative partners they used their notes to plan out a report about the life of the famous Scottish inventor.
This week P2 have been building and describing simple arrays. We had to say how many rows and columns were in our arrays.
During maths, we explored the weight of different objects in the classroom. We measured how many cubes each item weighed. We also talked about the language used to describe weight – heavier and lighter.
This week we have been learning about estimating within our number range and breaking a whole into parts and describing how we made it fair.
We are learning to use vocabulary according to weight ( heavier / lighter) as well as identifying items that are heavy/ light.
On Wednesday 9th March 2022, we found a frog in the nursery garden. The children were fascinated and we discussed how it may have gotten in to nursery. We moved it to a safe place over in our community garden.
