### Longer, Shorter and Taller

In Maths this week the children have been exploring the concept of length. They have used vocabulary including: longer, shorter and taller to discuss their learning.

 Some children put themselves into order from the tallest to the shortest.

We measured one another using centimetres.

Some children solved problems by identifying the longest lines and then used a ruler to draw a shorter line.

Some children used play dough to make longer and shorter snakes. They then used cubes to measure how long each snake was.

Some children were able to solve a word problem: Two children make a tower each. They share 20 cubes between them. Child 1 makes a tower that is tallest. How tall could each tower be?

In English we are reading the story 'We All Went on Safari'. We have been thinking about the different animals we might see. The children worked with a partner to write descriptions of different animals.

As part of our topic 'From A to B' we had a look at the school golf buggy. We talked about the different materials that have been used to make it and how it works. We discussed how to keep safe while riding on the golf buggy before being taken for a ride around school on it. It was GREAT FUN!!
