Planting Bulbs

We had the fantastic opportunity this week to plant some bulbs near to the school Reception with our resident gardener. We found our lots of information about how plants grow from bulbs and the different varieties of flowers and plants they can produce. These bulbs should start to pop up in the spring so keep your eyes peeled after the Christmas break to see how green-fingered we are!

What We've Been Up To - MATHS

Hello Everyone! It has been a busy start to the year in 2WJ. The children have been working hard and developing their skills across a range of mathematical concepts. We have been challenging children to work together to solve problems, using lots of different resources and diagrams. Here are some images that showcase some of the work we have been doing. This first image shows some work where children were asked to make numbers using Base 10 resources and add them to a large number line. The children in this group really found it useful  to have the numbers represented in this way when it came to comparing and ordering. These pictures of some Mathematics Museum shows some work from earlier in the half term where children were asked to use their knowledge of partitioning to use diagrams, models and images to show a number in a variety of ways. I was really impressed by how the children had used part whole models to show how this 2 digit number could be partitioned. If you'd like to, perhaps you could ask your children if there are any other ways to partition a number like this. Please check back soon because we will have lots of pictures and information relating to this week's trip! All the Best  The 2WJ Team
