We also learned about 2D shapes.  We practise naming them and describing their properties using mathematical vocabulary.  Did you know that the word vertices means corners?

Autumn 2

 

Our new topic for this half term is CHOCOLATE!! We are very excited about this one...

What maths can you do with a tube of smarties?

 

This was the question Miss Asquith asked us on the first day back after half term.  We decided that we could do lots of maths with our smarties - we sorted them, made graphs, added and subtracted them, divided by putting them into groups, made shapes, measured with them and even wrote our own word problems!

Music Workshop

 

In week 2 we were very lucky to have a visit from Kathy and Brendan.  We all took part in a music workshop where we created adverts for chocolate bars using musical instruments.  It was great fun!

3D shapes

 

In maths we learned all about 3D shapes and their properties.  We investigated making our own 3D shapes using card and 2D shapes, polydron, multilink cubes and art straws.

Our trip to Cadbury World

 

On Monday 17th November we went on a trip to Cadbury World.  We had an amazing day finding out about the history of chocolate, learning how Cadbury's started, discovering how chocolate bars are made, tasting chocolate and even writing our names with it! Here we are enjoying our day out...
