We have been using tens frames and counters to work out number bonds to 20.
Using cubes, numicon and base 10 we have begun adding together numbers to 20.
By using cubes we gained a deeper understanding of what it means to order numbers from smallest to greatest and greatest to smallest.
We used our knowledge of comparison signs to compare numbers creating greater than, less than and equal to sentences.
We learnt what estimating means and have been estimating placing numbers on blank number lines.
We having been learning how to show numbers using tens and ones.
We investigated the number 10 more closely. Finding various ways to make 10 using the same or different equipment.
In term 3 we have begun looking at numbers 1-20. We started representing the numbers using counters and matching them to the correct word and number digit.
We used practical resources to understand what happens when we takeaway and have been writing corresponding number sentences for this. Using cubes, number lines, numicon and bead strings we have gained a good understanding of subtraction.
We have been using the part-whole model to help us see relationships in number sentences.
We have been using practical resources to help us understand the concept of addition. We can now add two numbers together. We also discovered that when adding two numbers together you can add them in different orders and get the same answer.
In class we have been looking at the part whole model. We have been learning how to use it to support us to partition numbers and understand number facts which will help us make connections between numbers. This will support our learning progressing onto addition and subtraction facts.
We have been learning how a number line can be helpful when trying to find one more, one less, ordering numbers and finding greater and less than a certain number. We went outside and used chalk to create our own number lines.
In class we learnt what ordinal numbers are and we discussed when we had seen them being used before. We knew they were used for races, competitions and dates. In groups we ordered ourselves from tallest to smallest and placed ourselves 1st, 2nd and 3rd accordingly. After that we ordered ourselves from smallest to tallest.
We have been learning about ordering numbers in maths and have practised ordering different representations together. We used terms such as smallest and greatest to help us order them.
We have been using skills we have learnt so far in maths to do different activities with physical objects. We can use our knowledge to compare numbers using greater, less than and comparison signs. Take a look at all our hard work!
Using objects Lime trees have worked hard understanding the concept of one more and one less. We can now find one more or one less of a given number.
Lime trees have been exploring different ways of representing numbers through different objects such as numicon, counters, dice and cubes. We sorted picture representations into the corresponding number column.
In maths we have been looking at place value. We having been working on our counting skills practically. Specifically counting out numbers from larger groups.
