Capacity

We explored capacity outdoors today. We found that sometimes a container doesn’t hold as much as we think it will.

Length

We made beanstalks and compared them with our friends, measured leaves and measured the length of the classroom in giant steps as well as our own!

Lots of

The little red hen left a note for the reception children to make them 3 lots of bread. Each character wanted two bread rolls each. We counted in twos!

Tens and units exchange

We played a game to remind us how to exchange 10 units for 1 ten. Simon has made an ebook about exchanging, you can see it on the school website.

Practical addition

We went to the Wombridge Winter Woolies shop and bought some gloves each (ready for the snow!) We counted the correct amount of pennies and counted on to buy 2 gloves. We then had a go at recording what we had done.
