This week we are looking at making halves and wholes using shapes and specified amounts of objects. We began by problem solving making two equal halves of a piece of paper. We then moved on to finding half of a number.
We have been learning about seaside towns and coastal areas and comparing present day to the 1970's. Using an Atlas, we looked for the seaside town of Wembury and the countries within Europe.
On Wednesday we celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. In Year one we were looking at the decade of 2000 to 2010 of the Queen's reign.
Using our knowledge from our Geography lessons, we looked at all the countries she had made state visits to within that decade. We created a timeline using flags from the countries to show when each of these visits took place.
We also noticed that the Queen wore white dresses to most of the state dinners she attended during this decade. We decided to design her some colourful dresses to wear for various occasions.
We also decorated bunting and made paper chains to decorate our classroom and our showcase table.
At lunchtime we had a picnic, some of our parents; brothers and sisters joined us, unfortunately the good old British weather resulted in this being moved inside. We still enjoyed this time together though.
During the afternoon we set up our table in the hall so that we could showcase all our learning to the other classes and the newly appointed mayor. We also had the opportunity to look at the learning other classes had done.
What an amazing but very busy day!!
