Identifying the number ‘after’ within 10
This week our mental maths focus has been to identify the number after within 10. We have enjoyed playing lots of games like Show Me and Quickfire to develop our quick recall. During our lessons we have worked on understanding and developing the concept of counting on by jumping forwards on a Numberline and using the forward command on a Beebot. Miss Vaughan has been very impressed with how quickly we were able to grasp this concept and we are looking forward to moving on to find the numbers before and in between 😊
🐻Sorting by Size 🐻
This week we read the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears.’ We counted the different sets of three within the story and sorted the sets by size. We sorted the sets into groups of large, medium and small. Some of us also recognised that the sets could be sorted by colour as well! We are really starting to use our thinking and problem solving skills! 🤩
Using Five Frames
We have been using five frames to make sets and recognise numbers within 5. Miss Vaughan has been very impressed with our number recognition! 🌟
Investigating the number 1
Our ‘number of the week’ was the number 1. We listened to a variety of number rhymes and songs to familiarise ourselves with the number. To consolidate our understanding of the number, we completed activities such as, writing the number on our whiteboards, making the number 1 using Play-dough and painting a picture of 1.
Celebrating Roald Dahl Day through Numeracy
We celebrated Roald Dahl Day with the story of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’ Our Numeracy focus for the day was to sort pictures using 1 criteria. We had to sort the pictures into sweets and not sweets. We stuck the pictures of sweets inside Willy Wonka’s factory and anything that was not a sweet was placed outside the factory. Miss Vaughan was very impressed with our problem solving and discussion during this activity.
