Our Maths Learning Today


Year 1


Today you will be comparing sets of numbers and labelling which are greater than and which are less than. The questions do get trickier as you go through the sheet, so don't worry if you find question 4 more challenging. 

Watch the video and be ready with your worksheet or a pencil and paper / writing board to join in. smiley



Year 1 worksheet - Compare groups of objects

Year 2


Today you are looking at comparing two different amounts of money to find the difference between them. This can be quite tricky because you are doing a few different operations. The questions go up to 7 today which are quite challenging. I think most of you should be able to do up to question 4. If you are up for the challenge, try beyond this. Don't worry if you find them tricky; they are!smiley

Our Afternoon Activity - The History of Toys


Before Christmas we were learning about toys and how they have changed within the living memory of our parents and grandparents. 

Today we will put our knowledge into practice and see if we can identify old and new toys and then use words to describe them. 

We will then illustrate and describe one of our favourite toys brought by Father Christmas and we will compare this with the kind of toys our grandparents would have unwrapped on Christmas day as a child. laugh



Can you identify which toys are old and which are new on each of the slides below. Then use the last slide to help you describe each of the toys you see.

Now using my sheets below, or your own paper, choose one of your favourite toys you received for Christmas and draw and colour it. Make it look fabulous! Then using the adjectives from the final slide; write words around it which describe it. How it looks, feels and even what it does. 


Then, if you are able to 'interview' a grandparent via a phone call, facetime or message ask them if they can remember a favourite Christmas present they received as a child. Can they remember what it was made from? What words would they use to describe it? You might need to google the toy if you aren't sure what it would have looked like so you can then draw this toy too. Again use the final slide on the powerpoint above to help you to describe the toy.


Do you remember me sharing with you the gird and cleek my dad said he used to run around the streets of Scotland with? 


And Mrs Downes explaining about her doll which had a pot face and needed to go to the doll hospital to be repaired when it broke?


Hopefully this will show us how toys have changed and how the materials they were made from have changed to. I would love to see your pictures of your Christmas toys and your illustrations of the kind of toys your grandparents would have had. I think they would love to hear from you too! Good luck on this mission!smiley You may need more time than just this afternoon to get in touch with a grandparent so don't worry. Speak to them when you can!
