Curwen Primary School


Autumn 1


In Maths, we have been learning how to partition two digit numbers; we started by practically using cups and then moved on to using dienes to carry out fair swaps with numbers. We showed resilience and remembered that 10 cups has the same value as 1 ty or ten. We discussed how a range of real life objects such as blocks, pasta or pencils have the same value, different appearance. We used a range of numbers from 10-100. During our starter activities, we have enjoyed counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.


In Topic, we explored a wide range of materials such as wood, metal, plastic and glass. As a class, we talked about the different textures and appearance of each material. During the week, we carried out our own investigation to find out what would be the best material to use to make a house. We predicted if it would endure strong winds and rain. Soon after, we worked as a team to create our houses and we tested our predictions and made a conclusion of our results. We had lots of fun during the process.


In Literacy, we listened to a range of stories based on our whole school topic ‘Who am I?’ we have been developing our listening and communication skills to share our ideas about the stories. We used a range of skills to develop our writing and showed great resilience. We are continuing to remember to use a capital letter, finger spaces and full stops in our writing.
