Hand-on Value

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.

Our little cooks

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.

Letters & their sound

Today children revised the Maltese letters they learned so far. They matched real objects to their corresponding initial letter and sound.

Learning through Play

Sensory play with rice and cornflakes (numeracy skills for filling up cups full and empty etc…) and Cooking Friday activity – preparing fruit kebabs. by K1.5, K1.6.
