On the first day back we started with an exciting challenge! The children had to get into groups and were given a variety of materials along with a raw egg. Their challenge was to protect the egg - so when they threw it, it would not break. Children got very inventive with this STEM challenge and we all had a lot of fun!
In Numeracy we have been looking at place value. Yr 1 have been concentrating on using numbers to 10 and deciding which is the greatest number. They have also started to use part whole models so that they can see different ways of making the same number. Year 2 have concentrated on numbers to 100, looking at how many tens and ones are in a number. They have used this information to create their own part whole models and decide which number is the greatest.
In literacy we have focused on our key text `Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book` along with traditional tales.
