In Maths today we talked about Fast and Slow tasks. We found out that some things take ages to do and others hardly take any time at all!
We had a few challenges to do. We had to decide if they were fast or slow challenges. Here's a photo of Nicole being challenged to write her name. We decided it would a fast challenge. We were right!

You can help us at home by making us aware of what time it is, what time we need to leave to come to school, when is tea time etc. You might like to tell us how long we have to get ready, or eat our tea. Putting the timer on the microwave to countdown while we do something helps us realise how long ten minutes is for example.
In the other half of our lessons, we will continue to do our Strategy and Knowledge workshops with the teachers. In Strategy we are still focusing on Multiplication and Division and for Knowledge this week we are looking at Grouping and Place Value (ie How many tens are there in 30)
Thanks for helping us in our learning journey - our teachers really appreciated it!

Over the next couple of weeks we are focusing on Multiplication and we are loving it! Mrs Lunn is taking us for workshops focusing on skip counting to solve multiplication problems and we are learning to use arrays too.
You can help us at home by getting us to skip count in 2s, 5s and 10s. We should know our doubles as 4+4 and we should know that that's the same as 2×4. Once we are flash at that, we could try skip counting in 3s and 4s!
Miss Crowther is taking the knowledge workshops at the moment. We are learning about Fractions! We need to recognize the symbol for half and quarter and be able to tell you what half of a shape looks like.
At home, you could get us to cut out pictures or shapes and get us to cut them in half. You could give us a group of something (maybe crackers) and ask us the split the group in half (so we have half each). You could ask us if we'd like our apple cut in quarters or halves.
Thanks for helping us!
Today we were talking about the roles people play in the economy. We learnt about producers, retailers and consumers. We found out that producers MAKE the products, retailers SELL the products and consumers BUY the products.
When we make our Market Day products, we are producers. When we sell our products we will be retailers and when we buy products at Market Day we will be consumers. We think it's pretty cool we get experience the different types of economic roles.
