This is our termly overview for maths that we will be
following for Terms 1 & 2.
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.
