The children are now more confident with letter writing as they have written a letter to our main character Hassan persuading him that the UK is a colourful place. To go with this, the children chose a feature of the UK in the atlas, e.g. population or climate, and created their own colourful map to show the colours of the UK. The children used keys to show what each colour represented and some children even managed to label capital cities too.
In maths we have been learning how to find 1, 10 and 100 more or less than numbers up to 1000. We have also then compared numbers up to 1000 using different representations: pictures, counters, number cards, place value arrow cards, base 10 equipment and digits were all compared.
We are looking forward to another busy week next week full of colour and excitement. Starting with harvest celebrations on Monday!
