How many ways can you make the number......

This week some chidren were looking at ways of splitting a number into two parts.
They used a story of frogs in a pond and on a rock to show and record their findings.
Here are some of the photos they took for number 8. They found 9 different ways.

Discovery Time Term 3 week 1


At discovery time today we tried out an amazing Makey Makey set. This was very special as it meant we could play music using bananas and mandarins or even playdough! A great lesson in electric currents.
The other activities were: Making a shark picture collage, Making prints with playdough, Magnets, stick puppets and target shoot.
This term our Life Skill is Participating and Contributing and today we were focusing on...how we can use our words to 'join in', or 'approach' a game we would like to be involved in.

More clay fun

Last term we made clay pinch pots and some of us also made a coil pot. They were all sent to be fired at one of our local potters and now they are back....so yesterday we were able to paint them.
