This morning we went to Brockwell Park to forage for autumn things to make art with. We saw oak trees, London planes, mushrooms, acorns and lots of other things. It is really helpful if your child has a pair of wellies at school so they are prepared for all extremes!
Today we started a few days of complex maths where will relate addition and subtraction. Today we used counters to move the parts around to tell stories, e.g first there were 8, then 6 went away now there are 2. Then we could say that 6 + 2 = 8.
On Friday we used what we have learnt about subtraction to solve word problems. We drew out the number of things there were first, then we crossed out the number of things we were taking away then we counted what was left. Finally we wrote the subtraction number sentence to go with the word problem.
