Painting

We have been painting! We have used water colours to paint the background of our under the sea moving picture. We blended blue and green paint together to make the sea two toned. Have a look.

Solving money problems!

We had to think of all the different possibilities for the cost of buying a balloon from the shop.

20140707-102203.jpg

We used different approaches to record the possibilities.

20140707-102305.jpg

Some of us tried using a systematic approach.

Moving pictures

We have been designing our own moving pictures in topic. We thought about what our under the sea scene would look like and what materials we will use to make it.

Sammy the shape eater

Today a naughty fish came into Year 1 and ate some of our 2D shapes. He left us a message saying how many sides he had eaten altogether. We had to solve the problem of what shapes could he have eaten. Have a look…

Problem solvers!

We are working out a ladybird problem! 3 ladybirds have landed on our playground and we are finding all the possible totals we could get with 3, 2, 4, 5, 7 spot ladybirds. Could you do a problem like us?
