This half term the children will be looking at repeating patterns, sequencing and sorting, counting up to 20 forwards and backwards, simple addition and subtraction and measurement involving length and weight.
This week the children have been making patterns in lots of different ways. Some children have used paints in the Creative Area whilst others have used different counting objects to show patterns by colours.
Ordering by size
Also this week the children have learnt how to order different objects by size. Some children have used Compare Bears whilst others used characters from the Gruffalo story.
Numbers to 10 and 20
This week the children have been counting up to 10 and 20. They have made visual number lines, matched the correct quantity to each number and looked at numbers written as words. Some children have looked at how to represent numbers in different ways such as pictures or objects.
Number Sequences and More and Less
This week we have looked at different number sequences. The children have continued a number pattern and practised counting forwards and backwards. We have also looked at one more and one less.
Addition and Subtraction
This week in Maths the children are learning the different vocabulary for addition and subtraction. We will be using number lines to learn how to add by 'counting on'. Later on in the week we will be learning how to take away by 'counting back' along a number line.
