Estimating & Measuring

Today we are learning how to estimate the length of an object and then measure the length correctly using centimetres and metres. 

Longer vs Shorter

This morning we are learning about length. We are making meaning by comparing objects. Which is longer? Which is shorter? How do we know?

Amazing Mazes!

Miss Hinge and Mrs Lawry's maths groups have been learning about position and orientation for the last week.

We came up with some words that are useful for giving directions and describing position. Forwards, backwards, left, right etc. We talked about compass directions - North, South, East and West. The important ones we had to remember were quarter turn and half turn.

Year 2 and 3 Sleepover!

On Friday night we had a year 2 and year 3 sleepover at school. We had so much fun during our own Amazing Race. We had milo and cookies for supper and toast and fruit for breakfast. It was very different sleeping in our learning hubs but most of us got some sleep.
