Today we shared the story ‘The Dog and His Bone.’ In pairs we highlighted the expanded noun phrases and identified the main events. Then we retold the story in our own words.
In pairs we investigated combinations of weights to balance some scales. Some children explained how they approached the problem systematically.
The children loved applying all their strategies for calculating using the four operations. There was a hubbub of excitable chatter in the room and lots of very proud children.
The children are enjoying collecting and categorising story openings and endings from these beautiful magazines.
We have been solving missing number problems using the inverse operation. Some of us went on to explore when we don’t need to use the inverse operation and they came up with a rule.
We interviewed characters from the Travellers and the Bear. Then we explored voices for different characters in the Ant and the Grasshopper.
