This week, we have been learning...

UTW- Canada Enrichment Day

This week, we had a whole school enrichment day. We learnt about the country of Canada and experienced a variety of activities including food tasting, hoop dancing and ‘ice’ hockey. We also learnt about the history of Canada, Canadian animals and Canadian physical features. 

Maths

This week in Maths, we have been focusing on number bonds to 10. We used counters and ten frames to find different ways to make 10 and then made numicon 10 sandwiches with the numicon. We then used the part-part-whole models to help us show our number bonds. We then explored how to separate 10 into 3 parts using 10 cows, 3 fields and a part-part-part whole model! 

UTW- London

This week we have been learning about London. We went on a tour of London, learning all about the different landmarks. We challenged the Acorns to use their creativity to make their own versions of different London landmarks. Some drew, some painted and some built. It was great to see all their different interpretations!
