This week in Maths, we begun to use Base ten to help us to count and partition numbers into tens and ones. We then started to add two numbers together using the Base ten, if we had ten ones or more, we could exchange them for a ten.
We started to create seaside inspired art, using water colour paint to create a colour wash showing the sky to the water. We then used a range of materials, cutting and ripping it to create features at the seaside e.g. buckets, spades, boats etc.
During Topic time (Geography), we learnt about physical (natural) and human (man-made) features, looking at common seaside items, then comparing and deciding if they were physical or human features. Then, as a next step we had to compare physical and human features we could identify around school. On Thursday, we went back to Oxhey Park, to make comparisons to our last visit; looking at seasonal changes, animals, habitats and physical and human features. We identified lots of changes including new fresh flowers, leaves and blossom on the trees, there was lots more animals for us to see and even the water levels of the river had changed. We even got to play in the playground for a short time which was a real treat! On Friday, we wrote comparisons, comparing the features we spotted.
Great learning boys and girls, well done.
