Straws galore!

 

This week our classroom has been filled with straws… and they have been helping us LEARN!

In maths we have been using straws to show our understanding of numbers and what quantity they represent. We have been using single straws for our units and bundles of 10 straws for our tens. I have been so impressed with how the children have been using the straws, we have even been making numbers way over 20!!!

 

We have also used straws to make skeletons!! In literacy we have been reading the story ‘Funny Bones’ so we decided to build our own skeletons using art straws, we tried to include as many bones as possible, they look FAB!
