Today we have been exploring multiplication in class. First we made arrays and then moved on to drawing number lines, which we then checked with the place value counters. Then some of us started using a jotting (the box method) to record our calculations. Each time we used the place value counters to check we were correct.
Yesterday we had a fantastic morning researching the amenities offered in the village centre. The children made careful observations and decisions about services offered. Then we walked to the Riverside Walk to explore the river. We saw a floodplain, some meanders and tributaries. The children looked carefully at the riverbanks and made detailed observational drawings. Thank you to all our helpers, who asked the children challenging questions. Well done everyone – super geographical skills!
