We started our new Project “Senses” with a special senses day. The children completed a range of English based activities about each sense including a bit of food tasting to experience a range of sensations on the tongue…the grapefruit got the best reaction! This week we have started a senses poetry unit so the senses walks in and out of school will support this. We began the unit overloading our senses with a scented classroom filled with textures, sounds and tastes.
We have started to think about multiplication and division through lots of practical tasks involving making groups of and sharing. In multiplication we consider how many groups of something there are e.g there are 3 groups of 10 which makes 30. In division we had to share objects between a given number e.g 12 things shared between 4 gives 3.
