Thank you to all the boys for the bright 100 squares which have come into our classroom this week!
Each one is different and we have enjoyed looking at them and hearing about how they were made.
We often use number squares to help us when we are working on addition or subtraction questions in our Numeracy lessons.
We are also becoming experts at spotting number patterns as well as counting in intervals of 2, 5 or 10.
This week we have been working really hard at understanding number. We have been been working on our number bonds and investigating ways of making 10.
Here we are using counters and giant dice to investigate number sentences.
This week we have been making towers and models out of 3D shapes such as cubes and pyramids.
After we had made our models we kept a tally of which different 3D shapes we had used. We found out that a sphere will not balance on top of a pyramid!
Here are some facts about 3D shapes from the boys in 1S-
- Square based pyramids have 5 faces- Naveen
- Cubes have 6 square faces- Marcus
- Cylinders have 3 faces altogether and they can roll on a table top- Harvey
- Spheres have 1 face which goes all the way around- Jack
- Cuboids have 6 faces, sometimes the faces are square and some are rectangles- Rayan
- Dice are cubes- Thomas
