This is our termly overview for Terms 3 & 4.
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.

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.
