Learn, create, share with maths.

Over the last week we have designed and created our own maths games.  We had to write instructions and then test them out. Some people had to make changes to our instructions to make sure they were clear and easy to understand.
There was lots of team work, creating, trial and error, question asking, justifying, thinking, literacy and of course MATHS going on.

We are enjoying learning how to do different parts of gymnastics. Some of them are candlestick, forward rolls, walking on the beam, front support, back support, straddle, l-sit, tuck, wall climb, going over the box and landing. 

We think this is all really FUN!

We took the chance to get outside between the rain today and sketch some of the beautiful daffodils in the garden by the staff carpark.

It is great to see the progress throughout the year in our sketchbooks.

Geometry - 3D shapes

Our maths learning with Miss Muller has been geometry this week (and will be continuing next week too). Today our focus was on 3D shapes.  
We got to learn through exploring, making, finding out, games and internet research.  

Thanks, Miss Muller for all your fun lessons that teach us so much!

Learning how to be bloggers.

Here we are learning how to be bloggers. We started off by practising helpful, positive or thoughtful comments. Now we are having a go at writing this post together. We want to become experts for when we get our own blogs.
