Today in Maths we started learning about place value using counters. We practised making different three digit numbers using them. We even had a try with numbers containing a zero. We had a very good first try!
In our Computing lesson this afternoon we practiced using 2Count on Purple Mash to make our own pictographs. We then had to use our Maths vocabulary to write facts about the graphs we made. It was great fun!
We have had a very busy week this week in Toucans class! We have continued with our research about the North Pole and are ready to write back to Professor Pole now. We have used atlases to find different countries in the North Pole and found out more about the temperate and landscape.
In English we have been reading lots of books by Hans de Beer. He has written a series of books about a character called Lars who is a little polar bear. We have enjoyed them all and made book reviews.
In Maths we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have learnt some new vocabulary including vertices and quadrilateral. We have learnt to name and describe shapes and even had a go at making shapes from nets.
