Those of us in Year 1 have been very resilient when practising the skill of addition! We have been using our fingers and a number line to help us practise this skill!
In Year 2 we have been practising our subtracting skills! We have been learning about the different methods of subtractions and then we chose a method which best supported our thinking skills to help us solve tricky subtraction sums!
In Year 1 we have been learning all about rhyming words! We have been playing lots of rhyming games and have been making up our own little rhymes! This skill will help us when we come to write our own poems in the new year!
In Year 2 we have been very busy creating our own characters for our Dragon Machine Story. Instead of dragons we had to use our thinking skills and decide on a different creature for our story! We described our characters using fantastic adjectives and also came up with scenarios that described the cheeky things these characters and creatures were doing! To finish, we thought about where we would take our creatures so they wouldn't be seen by humans and wouldn't cause any more mischief! Ask us about the silly things our creatures and characters got up to and where we were going to take them!
