Maths

This week we are working on our active counting forwards and backwards to 20. We are starting and stopping at different points. For example we are starting to count from 5 to 15 clapping our hands, or counting from 2 to 17 bending our knees. During our warm up sessions we are re-capping last weeks focus of one more than any number with 20. Our main focus in Maths this week is doubling numbers to 10. We are using the Numicon shapes to help the children visual the doubling or numbers. We are also singing the doubling song which goes........

1 and 1 is 2...2...2

2 and 2 is 4...4....4

all the way to ten. 

 

Literacy

Our story this week is called "Whatever Next". This links with our theme of Space. This week we are focusing on sequencing,understanding book order and talking through blank level questions so the children have a good understanding of the story. In class we have changed our home corner into a deconstructed role-play with cardboard boxes, sheets or materials and props. This enables children to use their own imagination and create and share their own experiences. 

Whatever Next! (audio book version)

Maths-   

In Maths this week are emphasising to importance of counting forwards and backwards to twenty. We call this active counting so we use movements such as clapping, stamping and stretches to help us when counting. Linking in with our topic this with with Space we are counting down everyday from 20 to 0 pretending we then blast off in space. 

Our main learning focus this week is one more and one less than any number within 20. We are using lots of practical resources such as number lines, counters, cards and number shapes to support their understanding of one more and one less. 

Please see the link below from youtube which we have used to support some of our Maths sessions.
