Numeracy and nature for P2

We had a fabulous afternoon on Tuesday as the sun shone and we had fun. We played numeracy games. We had to collect sticks, stones or shells from the middle and then workout our teams score. Each time the items were given a random value of hundreds, tens or ones. A bit of a challenge for some but we worked well in our teams to help each other work out the scores. We used metre long sticks to tap a rhythm whilst we counted in twos up to 100. We then did it backwards a wee bit more slowly. We did times tables in pairs crossing our sticks for the multiplication and equals signs. Coordination varied since this is the first time we have used the sticks. Practise makes perfect so we will do this again soon. We also did the hundred square challenge. We had to find pairs of natural objects to fill the squares. We had to make each pair different in some way to the rest.

In the last fifteen minutes we got to play at the park. We had another silver certificate winner this week with Riley achieving his. The golden tickets winners for the last two weeks were Saffron, Riley and Millie for being silver superheroes and Cara for working more quickly. Well done to you all you clever doodles!
