In Maths, we began by recapping place value, developing our understanding of two-digit numbers. We used a range of practical resources and methods to explore the value of 2-digit numbers. We ordered them, split them into tens and ones and learned where they fit in on a number line. We also had lots of fun exploring the hundred square!
This term in Science, we began learning about animals including humans. We learned about how our muscles help us to move and how our senses enable us to observe the world around us. We also learned how to tell which animals belong to different groups including: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects.
