In maths today the Stars learnt how to count on using materials. We all decided that it is easier to add the smaller number on to the bigger number e.g. 3 + 9 start with 9 and add on 3 to get 12. If we get stuck we can use materials such as counters to help us count on.

In Room 4 we have been using a cool new app called Aurasma. It connects images and video together. We used Aurasma to create videos about how our school values can be used when using iPads. Next time you visit Room 4 grab an iPad, click on the Aurasma icon, and hover over any of the school values to see the videos that the children have made.

First Use of iPads

Today Room 4 learnt how to log into our google accounts. All children have gmail accounts which will be used throughout the year. We also named our iPads. We did this by taking a photo of ourselves and setting it as our lock and home screen. Tomorrow we will start using Puppet Pals.
