This week in Maths the children have been continuing to explore tens and ones in place value. We have practiced drawing tens frames to show tens and ones. Furthermore the children have revisited counting in ones on a bead string. They have also been trying to identify one more and one less with numbers more than 20. We have then used number lines to count forward and backwards to identify one more and one less.
For writing this week Class One have been writing newspaper reports about the moon landing in 1969 and Neil Armstrong. We watched a documentary to collect information to write about and learnt to take notes. We also explored the features of a newspaper and had a go at writing our own reports.
A very big well done to Class One for being Purple Learners of the week. They have all worked so hard with the Year 6s to create their own book about the Jeff the Orange Octopus.
