This week in maths the children have been finding different ways of making numbers by partitioning and recombining them using a variety of resources , including counters and cubes. The children have become accurate at using the part-part-whole model to do this and we have introduced the bar model as well.
In Topic we have had two main focusses, geography and DT. In Geography the children are learning about the different countries that make up the United Kingdom. In DT they designed a model space ship, to get Beegu the alien back home. They then had great fun and used a variety of materials and junk modelling items to create a space ship with a friend.
