MATHS OPEN MORNING!
On Tuesday 9th October we invited our grown ups into school to take part in maths activities with us.
We had to recognise numbers from 0 to 100....in a random order.
We also had to solve addition and subtraction problems using a number line to answer the question - which elephant was Elmers friend?
We are pleased to announce it was ASH!
We found it very hard to see in the dark den... it was pitch black. We had to use our hands to feel our way around. We made each other jump... A LOT!!!
When we added torches it was much easier to see.
This is what we thought...
"I liked it when I put the torch on because it was dark in the den"
"It was scary and dark and I couldn't find the way out"
"It was dark and we needed flash lights"
"It was scary when I went in the dark den because there wasn't any light"
We have been thinking about our 5 senses:
Hearing- using our ears to listen
Taste- using our mouths and tongues
Sight- using our eyes
Smell- using our noses
Touch- using our hands
We took part in several activities using these senses.
We went on a listening walk around school and heard different sounds in different places, such as children talking, doors closing and people walking inside and workmen hammering and drilling and the wind rusting in the trees outside.
We explored our sense of taste and smell by taking a taste test. We had several different flavours of crisps in bowls but did not know what they were. First we snifffed them to try to work out the flavours.... then we ate them. YUM!!!!!!!!
We explored the dark den using our sight and touch. Do you like the pictures we took?
Reading is very important!
Try to read at home everyday even if it is only for 5 minutes.
When you arrive in the classroom each morning don't forget to put your book in the red basket.
If would be great if when you have read at home your grown up wrote a comment in your reading diary to let us know how you did and how far you read.
In PE we took part in some simple tests...
...standing on one leg - with our eyes open!
...standing on one leg- with our eyes CLOSED!!!!
What was the difference?
It was harder to balance with our eyes closed, we wobbled a lot more!
Next we bounced a ball with our right hand. Then we tried our left hand. It was easier for most of us with our right hand. Then we tried again.... with our eyes closed!
THE BALLS WENT EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!
