Last week Year 1 children learned more about number value. They were given beans and blocks to make groups or towers showing the value of numbers from 1 to 10. They could clearly understand the meaning of value and easily understood the meaning of more and less.
The children sifted the flour and used a rubbing in method to incorporate the butter, they grated the carrots which they added to the dough. They kneaded it and opened it up with a rolling pin, and cut shapes with cutters. These were baked in the oven.
