Making the Year One Area

We went and watched the workmen putting up a fence to enclose the Year One playing area.  The workmen needed to dig big holes to put the fence posts up but it didn't take long before there was a fence and gates making us a nice safe area.

Khittamai shows us the big holes for the posts.

Putting to use our iPad skills.

In Maths we have been learning a quicker way of counting.  We had races and counting in twos is much quicker.  To practise counting in twos and to use all our iPad skills we took a photo of our friends.  We lassoed around the face and put the photos into a blank document so that we could count how many eyes 4 friends had.  It was a fun activity.
