This week in Maths we are looking at capacity! Children are learning to compare and solve problems around capacity using the language, full, half full, quarter full and empty. We have been having lots of fun looking at containers and describing what we see!
Sliding pictures!Written by Lora Allan
This term we have been making sliding pictures. We did sliding pictures based on the little red riding hood fairy tale. First we drew a background and then we colour it in. Next we made a character and cut it out. After that we put the character on a lollipop stick. Finally we cut a line in our sliding picture so that we could retell the story!
Take a look at our pictures.

Wonderful Maths!Written by Lora Allan
This week we have been learning about how numbers are made. We have been using dienes to help us understand tens and ones. Take a look at our pictures!
We have also been comparing numbers and thinking about how we know a number is more or less. For example, 55 is more than 19 because 55 has more tens than 19.
Dressing for the weather!Written by Lora Allan
We have been thinking about the weather this week. We have looked at a weather forecast and discussed what all the weather symbols mean. Yesterday the children had weather cards and they had to dress up for the weather card they were given! Take a look at our pictures.

Halving!Written by Lora Allan
This week we have been halving amounts by sharing. We have been using counters to find out what half a number would be! We have learnt that sharing is between two people and it has to be fair. Can you share something at home?
Making Pizzas!Written by Lora Allan
This week we have been looking at a book called George and Flora's secret garden. In the book the children are planning a surprise party for their new baby sibling that is on the way! They have decided to plant all the vegeatables they need for the party food in their grandad's garden. In the book there are instructions for how to make pizza so we thought we would have a go! The children made the pizza and then wrote about what they did the following day. Take a look at the pictures.
Hot seating!Written by Lora Allan
We have done some drama to really understand the characters in the book 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. The children imagined they were Jack and we asked them questions about their journey up the beanstalk! It was great fun and Aiken was a fantastic Jack, he answered the questions very well! He told us how he was so poor and that he thought the magic beans might be worth a try as the cow wasn't going to do anything amazing!
How does your garden grow?Written by Lora Allan
Yesterday we introduced our topic 'How does your garden grow?' The children thought of all the questions they have about plants, seeds, trees and growing things. We wrote them down! Through the term we will aim to answer all these questions through our learning. Take a look at our pictures.

We saw giraffes, zebras, cheetahs, Geladas and many more! Take a look at our pictures!
