The children chose a total to make. They then were asked to think of a range of addition and subtraction sums which totalled their chosen amount. Fab calculating Year one! ?
Volcanoes may have been one of the reason that dinosaurs became extinct so I reception we decided to learn more about them. We learnt lots of new words like magma, tectonic plates and dormant.
We decided as a class that we wanted to make our own volcanoes, so we became scientists for the day and since molten rock is hard to come by and far too dangerous, we decided to use vinegar, red food colouring and bicarbonate of soda instead to get a very similar effect.
The children wrote predictions about what might happen when we mixed all the ingredients together then we put on our goggles and tried the experiment. Why don’t you try it at home?
Sat down and ready for the show!
Rocking out at the O2 – the atmosphere is fantastic!
This week we have been using different resources to support our maths understanding. We have been using what we know to work out more challenging multiplication calculations. We used the smart TV to partition using counters, blocks and diennes.
The choir have arrived safely at the O2 for Young Voices. We are just beginning rehearsals and can’t wait for showtime!
The children have been exploring different ways of making different totals. They have been recording these in a variety of sums and using cuisenaire rods for support. Check out our work!
