Year 2 have had so much fun today for number day! During the morning we completed our own Smarties investigation where each pair collected data about the colours of their Smarties and then presented this data in their own bar chart and pictogram. They then used the data to answer questions like 'what is the difference between the number of pink and brown smarties?' Then the best bit... they got to enjoy them during morning play time.
This afternoon, we have enjoyed lots of different number games including the classic game of beetle which the children really enjoyed. Let them show you at home it was great fun!
Then we had a code breaker to do in class where we worked out the number the picture was worth in a number sentence. Next was bingo with numbers to 50 which is brilliant for our number knowledge and getting better at quickly recognising numbers.
Finally our fantastic Mrs Cookson baked cakes and gathered the children to learn about fractions. At the beginning of the session lots of the children decided that 1/12 was the biggest fraction and they would rather have 1/12 of the cake than 1/2. However after cutting the cakes into fractions we could clearly see that the smaller the denominator, the bigger the piece as long as the numerator is the same.
All the children have really impressed me with their effort today with their outfits but also their attention in class and we have had a brilliant day. Here are some of the photos we took during our morning activities.
