This is our termly overview for Terms 5 & 6.
Position and Direction
Wk 13th May 2019
This week we have been looking at position and direction. We have been using lots of mathematical language to describe the movements of ourselves and objects such as 'half turn right / three quarters turn left / full turn'. Today we used treasure maps and the children had to instruct their partner on which way to go to reach the treasure!
Solving Word Problems
03rd May 2019
wk 29th April 2019
This is our termly overview for Terms 3 & 4.
21st March 2019
We have now moved on to measuring capacity and have been comparing jugs of water to see which are full, empty, half full or more than half full.
We then experimented to see how many scoops of liquid it would take to fill up different sized containers.
19th March 2019
This morning we have been weighing and comparing objects to see which one is heavier and lighter.
18th March 2019
This morning we have been measuring the length and height of objects in centimetres.
14th & 15th March 2019
Today we did some more investigating using cubes to measure and compare the height and length of objects around the classroom. We have been practising to use the correct language of 'tallest, shortest and longest' when comparing them. The children even decided to measure how tall Mrs Harris was ... it took a lot of counting!!
13th March 2019
We are currently looking at measure and have been investigating which children are taller or shorter. Some of the children predicted that "The oldest child will be the tallest because they're bigger" however this proved to be an incorrect hypothesis.
Comparing numbers to 50
06th March 2019
We have been comparing numbers to 50 using the < > and = symbols.
Find one more and one less
05th March 2019
We have been working hard on finding one less and one more than a given number up to 50!
Represent Numbers t0 50
01st March 2019
This afternoon, we talked about how many different ways could we represent the number 39 using objects and pictures.
Know numbers to 50!
27th February 2019
In maths today, we have worked in pairs to count a range of objects using tens frames and our counting in multiples of 10 to help us. We then wrote the number on our white boards.
Counting in 2's
14th February 2019
Today we have been practising counting in 2's and using objects to help us.
Adding by making 10
13th February 2019
The children have been adding numbers within 20 using their knowledge of number bonds. They have been working pratically with tens frames to see how number bonds to 10 can help them to calculate.
Here are some examples of our class teaching.
This task is quite tricky, so lots of practise at home will help learning.
Find and make number bonds
06th February 2019
This morning, the children took part in an investigation to see how many number bonds they could find to 20. We first worked as a group to see how many different ways we could make 10 using numicon and discussed what patterns we could see happening. The children noticed that as one part was getting smaller, the other was getting bigger.
In small groups, they had a tray separated into two parts and 20 counters. They took turns to carefully shake the tray and counted how many counters were on each side and then wrote number sentences. The children were asked to investigate how many different possibilities there are and to think about how will they know when they had found them all.
Adding by counting on
28th January 2019
21st January 2019
In our maths lesson today, we have been using less than, greater than and equal to, language, when comparing groups of objects.
Tens and Ones
Wk 14th January 2019
This week, we have continued to represent numbers to 20 pictorially and showing how many tens and ones make up each number. We have also been exploring how to find one more and one less than a given number.
Know our numbers from 11 - 20
14th January 2019
In maths today, we have began to look at how we can use the part-whole model to partition numbers and learning about how that number is made up of tens and ones.
Lets count to 20!
09th January 2019
Today we have been practising counting to 20 and writing numbers to 20.
We have also been exploring how to represent numbers pictorially and to solve missing number sentences.
This is our termly overview for Terms 1 & 2.
Part - Part - Whole
11th & 12th December 2018
This week we have been recapping the part - part - whole model.
We have been experimenting with how many ways we can partition the whole number into two parts and writing numbers sentences to match.
28th November 2018
Following on from our work on 2D and 3D shapes, today we began experimenting to see which ones we could create using straws and play dough.
Here are some great photos of their work.
2D and 3D shapes
27th November 2018
Over the last week we have been looking at, naming and sorting 2D and 3d shapes.
Please login into EducationCity for some activities your child can do at home on our topic.
Find the difference
21st November 2018
We have now moved onto 'Finding the Difference' in our math lessons through subtraction. In our partners we have been using objects to solve number problems such;
'Eva has 7 cakes.
Mo has 3 cakes.
How many more cakes does Eva have than Mo?'
Find how many are left
12th November 2018
This week we have moved onto subtraction and have been exploring how we can 'take away' using a variety of methods. Together we have been working through number problems such as
'First, there are 7 birds in a tree. Then 3 birds fly away.
Show me how many birds are left.'
The children have been representing and showing their answers using the part-part whole model, number tracks and counters. We have even been writing number sentences using the - and = symbols.
Compare Number Bonds
06th & 07th October
Over the last couple of days we have been looking at and comparing number bonds. We have been working in pairs and using resources to help us match numbers sentences together and to prove our results.
Number bonds to 10
31st October 2018
Today we have been using various resources and models to represent the different ways we can make the number 10. The children had great fun experimenting and discussing if they had found all of the possibilities and how did they know? Some of the children were practising how to write number sentences using the + and = symbols and others were investigating how to make 10 with money.
Addition and Subtraction
09th October 2018
We have now moved on to Addition and Subtraction in maths. Today we have been using the part-part-whole model and experimenting with how many ways we can make a number.
More Than and Less Than
01st October 2018
Today the children used conkers and pine cones to identify and represent numbers, along with the language of more than, less than and equal to.
We also learnt a new song:
'Along comes Mr Crocodile ready for his lunch,
He sees the BIGGEST number and goes munch, munch, munch!'
28th September 2018
Next week, our maths has an Autumn theme and will include matching pine cones to numbers and exploring 'more than' and 'less than'. Here's a sneak peek ...
Counting back to zero
26th September 2018
Today we have been practising counting back to zero and filling in the missing numbers.
20th September 2018
We have been working on counting, reading and writing to 10 in numerals and words. Here are a few pictures of our amazing work!
Here are some of the songs we have been using in our lessons to learn how to count to and back from 10.
