In maths, the children have been comparing numbers, focusing on counting accurately, as well as using mathematical language, such as ‘greater than’, ‘fewer than’ and ‘equal to’. The children were introduced to the symbols < and >, and were able to use them in equations. The teachers were mightily impressed!
The highlight of the week for the children was Thursday – STEM day – where they took part in lots of fun activities to do with science, technology, engineering and maths. The Brickies Club workshop was by far the most popular, but a lot of fun was had throughout the day. STEM day was rounded off with a mini film and popcorn treat, as a reward for having filled the marble jar. Congratulations to Year 1!
