We have started to create equal groups of a number in different ways.

We have started to connect ideas with repeated addition and multiplication.

We have been using numicon to help us add together 2s, 5s and 10s. 

We have been practising counting in 10s.

We built and then compared to numbers using comparison symbols.

Using the part-whole model we partitioned numbers into tens and ones.

We used equipment to help us build the number of tens and ones and create numbers up to 50. 

Using groups of tens we made 20,30,40,50.

Using different units of measurement we estimated and measured the capacity of different types of containers. 

We have started looking at capacity and volume. We practised getting different volumes of water in our containers such as, half full, nearly empty, nearly full, full. 

We used scales to help us discuss and use words like heavier and lighter comparing objects in the classroom. As well as this, we used them to weight items using cubes as our unit of measurement. 

In maths we have been using different items to as a unit of measurement. We have used cubes and our feet to help us measure!

We began our length and height topic by ordering our height and the length of our arms. 

We used equipment to help us solve takeaway problems. 

We have been looking at finding doubles and using our knowledge of doubles to help us work out near doubles. 

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.
