Hi Baby

As part of our Real PE session today children enjoyed warming up with the activity Hi Baby. This warm up activity involves children travelling around the room in different pathways using high and low fives. Hi represents a high fives and baby represents a low five!

Varjack Paw

In guided reading today, children freeze framed different characters from our class text Varjack Paw. They considered the different relationships between the different cats and the different characters the cats possessed. The children worked in groups to create a freeze frame scene from the text.

Rounding to the nearest 1000

To carry on from our work that we have been doing in maths this week, today we were looking at rounding to the nearest multiple of 1000. We were able to use our knowledge gained of of how to round to the nearest 10 and 100 to understand how to round to the nearest 1000. We needed to remember to look at the digit in the hundreds column to determine whether to round up or down. A golden rule we needed to recall was if the digit was 1,2,3,4 we round down whereas if the digit is 5,6,7,8 or 9 we needed to round up. We also used bead strings to help us work out where the number would be on a numberline.
