Data handling

This week we have been finding ways to show information. We asked each other what our favourite pet was and put this data onto a tally chart. We then showed this data on a bar chart.

It was quite tricky making sure we added the correct information in the correct space.

Here are some photographs of children finding information and making their bar chart.

Here is a game we played too.

This week we have been learning how to use the digital camera.
We had to follow instructions and listen carefully.
We had to remember to put the strap around our wrist at all times.
We found out about the lens, the view finder, the flash and how to put the photographs onto the classroom computer.
Here are some of the children using the camera.

MAD tea parties!!

The children helped to set up the new role play area this week. We have different costumes for the characters and lots of different hats.

Here are a few of the photographs from this week.

Measuring in maths

This week we have been learning about measuring. We have measured with paper clip, measured with a ruler and found out the answer to the question, "Is the tallest child the oldest child?"

Have a look at our photographs and post if you enjoyed the activities.
