Our Mathematician of the Week was working on sequencing numbers this week. She was able to look at the numbers and complete the sequence with the missing numbers. This involved counting in ones and twos and even counting backwards. She could confidently write the correct missing number and check her answer on a number line. Well done!
Our Writer of the Week also displayed her skills on the interactive whiteboard. She was drawing pictures of her family and then labelling them using her writing skills to sound out and write the words. She wasn’t finished there she decided she could write a sentence about them as well. Great job!
A big well done to both our winners this week- you’re getting even more ready for Year One! 🙂
Before the holidays, our Mathematician had really impressed everyone with how she has begun to lead her own learning more in maths. She had her own idea to sing the 5 Speckled Frogs song which she did remembering all the words then she started to make up her own versions.
The Writer of the Week showed how much his confidence has grown recently with his writing. Not only did her write a letter to Miss Duddle asking for a new interactive whiteboard pen (We lost ours :-() but he went to see Miss Duddle and read it to her himself. He wrote the Phase 4 words (lost/ from) all by himself 🙂
What a great job both children did 🙂
Our Mathematician has been a subtraction whizz this week. She has been using the objects in the classroom to take some away and find out how many are left. She has been working out how to record her ideas using number sentences.
Our Writer has been working really hard to write her full name and has even been practising it at home. Well done! (There is no photo as it is of her name)

Its been another great week for Maths in Onyx Class! Look at the amazing Maths our Mathematician of the Week has been doing….
Well done! We’ll be looking for more fabulous maths next week…
This week’s Mathematician of the Week was so engrossed, she didn’t even know Miss Parker was watching her do her amazing maths. She was sat sorting the shapes in the Maths Area talking to herself the whole time about what she was doing. She even talked through putting the shapes in the wrong place then switched them to the correct place herself
(We talked in class about how she was sorting the shapes into colours not ordering them)
Well done! We’ll be looking for lots more Maths next week.
