Maths Objectives

This is our termly overview  for Terms 5 & 6.


Money, Money, Money

Wk 24th June 2019


Throughout this week, we have been working hard to recognise the value of both coins and notes and have been trying to add coins together to find out the total. 



What's the Time Mr Wolf?

Wk 10th June 2019


This week we are learning to tell the time to the hour and half hour!

Numbers to 100!

21st May 2019


We did a fantastic job at representing numbers to 100 using various equipment and finding the total amount of objects by counting in multiples of 10's.



The Big Numbers Song

It's a numbers song for children and adults. Count from 0 to 100 and from a hundred to a trillion.

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


Making Arrays

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.





The Counting by Tens

Count by tens from zero to one hundred with an adventurous dog and an adventurous song!

The Counting by Fives Song

Count by fives from zero to one hundred!

The Counting by Twos Song

Go up into space as you count up by twos with a dog and a song on a crazy rocket cruise!

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



Comparing Groups

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.



Here are some of the songs we have been using in our lessons.

Counting Numbers 1-20

"Counting Numbers 1-20" is a fun video for kids that teachers how to count from 1 to 20. The first scene slowly introduces the numbers 1-20 by counting little stars on the screen, first counting from 1-20, then counting backwards from 20-1.

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.


Shape Creations

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!'




Autumn Maths

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.

Shapes Song

A shapes song for children.

Five Little Speckled Frogs

This song is great for helping children to visualise 'taking away.'

Let's Count up to Ten - Counting Song

It's a counting song for young children. With superhero zero.

10 Little Numbers

A numbers song to the ten little tune. It's designed to help children learn the names and the spelling of numbers.

Counting Down From 10

Counting down from 10 helps teach kids to count backwards. And counting from ten to one with a blastoff at the end is exciting!
