This week in Maths we have been using resources to partition numbers using numicon and diennes, completing 100 squares and creating part whole models. 

In Epic we designed our own meerkat story. This was then turned into icons and we created actions to go with the pictures to help us remember the story. From this, we tried to make our story even more exciting by extending the sentences and adding adjectives. 

We also studied the work of the artist Kandinsky and created our own Kandinsky inspired art by joining together 2D shapes and patterns. The results were beautiful and each child had a different interpretation for what they could see in each picture.

This week in maths we have been exploring money. Noticing the features of both coins and notes, understanding their value and then arranging them from the smallest to largest amount. 

In Epic, we have introduced the topic Meerkat Mayhem. We began by creating questions that we wanted answers to and moved on to discussing the features of a meerkat such as where they live, what they eat and what they look like. Using our descriptive language, we created a work bank and then generated exciting sentences from this. We ended the week by exploring the facts and opinions of meerkats and found the answers to the questions that we had at the beginning of the week.

The children have settled back in to the new spring term and have wowed us with their writing presentation. This week in Epic, we had a key delivered to the classroom. We had no idea where it came from! The children wrote down some questions they had about the key and what did it open? Each day the children have been planning their story. On Friday, the children will use their ideas from throughout the week to write their own story based on the 'magic key'. 

In maths this week we have been working on multiplication and division. We have been halving cubes and shapes, then doubling a number and understanding the pattern in their calculations.
