Our topic in geography has been our local area. To begin with we looked at some photographs to find out what geography is about, we worked in small groups to sort the photographs into those with people and those with places. We decided geography is about people, places and how they are linked.
We had a great time using Google Earth to 'fly into St Bees' on the large whiteboard, then used the Ipads to have a go at flying around the area ourselves.
On a map of St Bees we used different colours to identify the land uses, using Google Earth to help us see what was there.
In maths we enjoyed playing a game to warm us up. Each pair had a cup and some cubes, we took it in turns to hide some cubes under the cup while our partner wasn't looking, our partner then had to work out how many cubes we had hidden. Some of us wrote our part-whole models for our calculations.
Next we each chose some toys, then worked in pairs to write number stories for our toys.
