Laminated cards with numicon to develop understanding of teen numbers
Cubes and numicon to count out the given teen number
Post boxes and number addition sums to counting mentally
Topmarks on the iPads for addition
Using numicon to develop our understanding of taking away.
Learning to count in 2’s -
using the IWB,
using numicon and
We used the beebots to explore mathematical positional language
in small groups
and also the IWB to find the position of teddy.
Guess the shape game.
We passed the bag of shapes until the music stopped.
The child holding the bag at that point had to describe the shape that they
were feeling in the bag to their peers.
Who had to guess from their description.
The following on activity was was make a shape picture
and count the number of shapes used.
Using numicon to make teen numbers, we have been learning how they are written and our activity was based on recognition.
Subtraction/ Taking away.
We are taking about the concept of taking away and understand that when we
take away the answer is either the same or less.
We have had lots of practical using cubes, counters, numicon etc and using ICT to help understand the concept.
To help develop our understanding of symmetry
we had four difference work activities which the children
had the opportunity to work in small groups.
Activity 1- ICT based matching lines of symmetry
Activity 2 - Colouring a hot air balloon so both sides were symmetrical
Activity 3 - using numicon base boards and shapes to makes both sided symmetrical
Activity 4 - painting one side of a picture and folding the page to make it symmetrical.
The children were very engaged and rotated about the activities exploring and investigating symmetry.
Super work boys and girls.
We have been learning about Symmetry.
We discussed what symmetry means and looked at items/objects that are symmetrical.
To help us develop the concept we use a butterfly
painted one side with a beautiful pattern and then folded the page in two.
We discussed how both sides were exactly the same.
