This week in topic we have been busy planning, writing and editing a story based on the book ‘The Tadpole’s Promise’. We kept the beginning and middle of the story the same, but then we were able to change the end of the story to something different. We also learnt about the lifecycle of a human and explained the differences in each stage. Finally we made posters explaining what animals and humans need to survive (e.g. air, water, food, shelter and sleep).
This week in maths we have been learning how to partition two digit numbers into tens and ones. We found this tricky so we spent a lot of time using the dienes to practise. We used the part-part whole model to help visualise the tens and ones. We also recapped exchanging ones for tens and we now know that 10 ones is the same as 1 ten. Towards the end of the week we learnt how to represent a number in different ways.
