During our Maths lessons last week we learned all about Charlie Crocodile!
“Charlie Crocodile likes to eat the biggest number” Tendi
Children worked in pairs and had to create a number each using the Numicon apparatus. They discussed who’s number was greater and who’s number was smaller. Children then inserted the correct symbol to make the Maths statement correct.
“Adrian has 14 and so do I” – Sidem
“14 is equal to 14” – Adrian and Sidem
“My number is greater” – Cheidel
” 10 is less than 14″ – Arooj and Cheidel
“19 is bigger than 7” – Naomi and Corwyn
“20 is less than 23” -Danayi and Ihsan
“5 is equal to 5” – Hermon and Mohammed Rahim
“23 is less than 27” – Malaika and Tendi
“17 is more than 8” Sarah and Rebecca
“9 is less than 15” – Taym and Sebastian
During this lesson, children had to identify, represent and estimate numbers using a number line.
Hermon, Glevene, Sebastian, Naomi and Mohammed Rahim were given numbers on a post-it note. They were asked to stand at the front and read their numbers out.
“I have 22” Hermon
“I have 15” Glevene
“I have 19” Sebastian
“I have 17” Naomi
“I have 21” Mohammed Rahim
Once children had read out their number they were asked to put themselves in the correct order, starting with the smallest number.
After that, children had to go and estimate where their number should sit on the number line.
For our paths lesson today we had to choose a pupil of the day.
Jaden’s name was pulled from the hat and we found it very easy to offer compliments to such a popular member of our class.
After hearing what everyone had to say, Jaden replied:
“I feel incredibly important and proud, thanks”
For our artist study this year, we have been studying Paul Klee’s ‘Castle in the sun’.
First, we discussed what we liked and disliked about his picture.
“I like that he has used the shapes I know from my Maths lessons” – Sebastian
“I like that he has used lots of red because red is my favourite colour” – Danayi
After this, some children practised cutting shapes out from card, others painted and some made shapes using gummed paper.
