This week in maths we have been investigating whether a number is odd or even. We worked with a partner to see whether we could share objects in to equal groups.
In Literacy we have been writing instructions for ‘How To Turn A Teacher In To A Toad”. Some of the ingredients that the children have chosen have not been very pleasant! The teachers are all hoping that the instructions won’t work and that the children won’t test them out!

This week we have found out that our topic for this term is toys. We are very excited about this topic and have enjoyed our activities so far.
We have enjoyed looking at old and new toys this week. We have found out that most old toys were made out of wood and tin. We compared them to our toys today which are mostly made out of plastic. We preferred our teddy bears from older teddy bears as they feel a lot softer and have lots of stuffing. In the past teddy bears were made to look more like the real animal and were not as cuddly.
Did you know that some dolls were made of wax and china?
In Maths we have been working hard to understand place value. We know that 13 has 1 lot of ten and 3 units. We have been using objects to help us work out different lots of tens and ones in a number.
