Marvellous Maths in Skiddaw

We’ve been busy working with place value in maths. We have been partitioning (splitting up numbers into hundreds, tens and ones), matching numbers to words, ordering and counting in all manner of ways using all sorts of practical equipment to show our understanding. I was thrilled to hear someone talk about wanting to be a mathematician when they leave school this week too!

 


Outdoor Learning in Year One

Year One have made the most of the beautiful September weather this week and enjoyed lots of their learning outside both in the playground and in their outside area.


Bowfell build a stream

Children in Nursery and Reception had fun earlier in the week when they built their own ‘stream’. They had been using the large loose parts to build bridges and trickles from the tap ignited their imaginations and 10 minutes later lots of children were working together to create a stream from the tap across the outdoor area including around corners! They worked brilliantly as a team, problem-solving and testing out their ideas and changing tactics when things didn’t quite go to plan. Even the ducks enjoyed their ride down the stream!
