‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Summer B

Week 1 


This week the children looked at some objects that could be found in a Victorian day house. We discussed the differences between the old artefacts to the objects we use today in the house. 

The children have been practicing their caption writing this week. It is amazing to see their progress shining through. 


This week the children have been introduced to rekenreks in maths. Rekenreks are similar to an abacus and we have been learning how to use them.
We know that instead of counting each bead across, we can subitise (instantly look at a number of objects and recognise how many there) and move a number across at the same time.  We have been practising this subitising by putting our finger in the correct place and moving the beads across together. We can confidently do this and have achieved and demonstrated this in just a couple of lessons!
