We are learning the names and feature of 2D and 3D shapes. Why don't you practice them by singing these songs? shapes 3D shapes


We are also learning the positional language.

Another thing we will be looking at this term are number to 20. Can you say and write some of them already?


We are currently learning how to add and take away numbers to 10. To support us we use part, part whole models, number lines as well as range of manipulatives.

Sometimes we act out stories to understand addition and subtraction even better.


In Maths this week we have continued practising part,part whole and the different number bonds we can make for 7,8,9 and 10 and wrote them in number sentences and using the part,part whole diagram. 

We then explored doubling and decorated iced biscuits to see a number of marshmallows double. 

After that we used ladybird diagrams to show our doubling pictorially as well understanding how to write it in a number sentence. e.g. double 3 is 6. 3+3=6 and that if 6 is the whole 3 and 3 are the parts. 

We then moved on to counting in 2's and discussing odd and even numbers. Using our knowledge of odds and evens we explored whether a given number of cubes could be shared equally. 

Number Bonds to 5 and part whole


In Maths this week we have been working with our numbers to 10 using a ten frame. We have problem solved to find all the part,part whole possibilities. 

For example - 10 is the whole, 6 and 4 are the parts. 


We have also been practising 1:1 correspondence and matching quantity to numeral as well as 

quick recall of one more and one less of a given number.
