In Maths we are always developing different skills, techniques and problem solving strategies through various practical activities.
There are also some lovely maths games on these websites:
In maths we are always investigating and problem solving.
Children will develop their under-standing of numbers 0-20, place value (counting forwards/backwards and 1 more/1 less) halving, doubling and explore the adding and subtracting of 1 digit numbers.
They will be using number bonds to 10 and challenging themselves for number bonds to 20 using skills taught and patterns they have noticed. We are also looking at Geometry: 2D & 3D shape, estimation and recalling and recording multiplication of the 5 and 2 times table in verbal and written forms.
On Maths Day we became explorers in Capacity. We investigated different containers for their capacity of full, empty, nearly full, nearly empty or half. We then created our explorer juice.....we had to measure with our cooperative partner exactly 100ml of water otherwise it wouldn't work. We were very careful! Next we chose which explorer we wanted to be and chose from the special explorer juice...space...jungle...or desert. After that we added some 'earth juice' and finally some fruit as all explorers need fruit to help their energy. Then we drank our explorer juice. CHEERS!!!!
We then started to explore.......
We have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. Did you known that we count 2D shapes by their sides and corners and we count 3D shapes by their edges, faces and vertices!
We explored 3D shapes further and even went on a shape hunt outside with our cooperative partner.
We looked at doubling numbers to 10 and investigated which numbers can and cannot be halved into equal parts.
We looked at numbers to 10 and investigated number bonds using the part, part, whole method on our ten frame.
