We have been learning how to find half and a quarter of a number!
This morning the children have been set a challenge to prove the answer to this challenge: "Can a triangle always be folded in half equally?"
This morning we are learning to find half of a shape! The children had to solve the problem "how can we share a piece of paper so two children have the same?"
We then investigated which shapes could be folded in half equally!
This morning we are learning how to double!
This morning we have started our multiplication chapter in our maths. The children used cubes to make groups, they then knew to count the groups using the numbers that is in the group e.g. 3 groups of 5 cubes so 5, 10, 15.
This morning we learnt how to represent digits using tens and units!
This morning we have learnt measure using a ruler! We know to always start at the edge of the object we are measuring!
Today we were using our body parts to measure the length of different objects. We learnt we could use our hands and feet!
Today we were measuring different objects using paper clips! We had to compare two different objects and justify which was longer. We then used the paper clips to measure objects such as glue sticks, pencils and even our own shoe!
Today we started our new topic of length! We compared three different 'office block' using the language tallest, taller, shortest and shorter.
We learnt that to compare the length of different objects the starting position has to be the same.
Today the children were set a challenge to group shapes in different ways. The children grouped the shapes into colours, shapes and amount of sides!
Today the children were given a challenge! They had equipment and had a problem and the children had to work in pairs to solve the problem. They also had to be able to explain how they solved it!
Today we have been partitioning a two-digit number to add to a one-digit number.
We worked together to solve the equations!
We have been learning to partition numbers! We have also learnt how to identify how many tens and units in a number!
Today we made number bond hands to help us learn our number bonds to 10!
Today we played a game! We chose a digit card. We had to say what number it was and given a statement about the number compared with the other numbers our friends had picked. The person with the greatest number kept the cards. The winner at the end of the game was the person with the most cards at the end!
Today we were using the language 'More' and 'Fewer'. We had to compare two different groups and the amount they had in each.
Today we played a game of pairs. We had to match the digit to the written number. We worked as a team to read the words and match them to the correct digit.
This week we have been learning positional language such as 1st, 2nd 3rd. We then moved on onto 3rd from the left or 5th from the right.
We are starting to solve subtraction equations using a number line!
This week we are learning to subtract! The children will learn different ways to solve subtraction equations!
This week we have started our Singapore maths lessons! It's a very practical way of teaching the concept of maths allowing the children to learn in a hands on way and promoting the use of talk.Today we have looked at representing numbers using a "10 frame",in digit form and in written words.
This week we learnt about number bonds! The children have been challenged to work together to find the 7 different ways you can make 6 by using adding two numbers together! The children had to rely on teamwork and trial and error! This really made them think like 'mathematicians!'
