This week we have been learning about subtraction. We learnt what the subtraction sign looks like and practised solving subtraction number sentences using objects.
Can you solve these subtraction number sentences?
5 - 2 =
7 - 4 =
6 - 5 =
10 - 3 =
In maths this week, we have been learning about 1 less. We sang counting songs like 5 Little Men in a flying saucer and 5 Currant Buns in a Baker’s Shop. Then we practised counting backwards from 20. We also used our fingers to show one less.
In maths this week, we have been learning about 2d shapes. We went over the shape names (square, triangle, circle, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon and octagon). We looked around the classroom to see if we could see these shapes in the environment and played shape bingo. We also talked about the characteristics of these shapes.
Can your child find any objects that are these shapes at home?
This week we have continued work on addition. We have been solving number sentences using objects and we are beginning to write our own number sentences.
Can you solve these number sentences?
2 + 4 =
5 + 5 =
7 + 6 =
Can you write your own number sentences?
This week we have been doing work on addition. We learnt about the add and equals sign and then put groups of objects together to work out how many objects we had altogether. We will be moving on to solving number sentences next week.
This week we have been learning about one more. We have been using objects to work out what one more than a number is. We are getting really good at this and many of us are now able to work this out without using objects.
This week, we will be learning about money. We will be discussing the value of each coin and then play shops to practise using the correct coin to pay for objects.
