Maths Focus of the Week

Week commencing 10.01.22


Making 10!

This week, we are using our knowledge of tens frames to begin to learn how to create and recall number bonds to 10. We will use counters, magnets and loose parts to create number bonds to 10 and will learn a special chant to help us remember. 

Can you practise the chant at home?

All about 9!

This week, we will learn all about number 9. Whilst learning about 9, we will remember how we use tens frames and part-part-whole models to create different numbers. 

How many does this tens frame show? How do you know? 



I know it shows 9 because there is 1 missing. I know that 1 less than 10 is 9!
I know it shows 9 because I can see 5 and 4. I know that 5 + 4 = 9.
I know it shows 9 because I counted the ones. I can see 9 ones. 




Week commencing 26.11.21

Finding one more and less than.

This week, we will learn all about number 8. Whilst learning to recognise, build and write 8, we will practise remembering how to find one more and less than a number. 

Remember, less means smaller, so we have to take away. More means bigger, so we have to add on!

All about number 3! 

In our busy time, we practise lots of maths skills such as ordering numbers, writing, creating and cutting shapes, making patterns and using calculators, however, in Puzzle time this week, we are learning all about the number 3! 

We are learning how we can make three using other numbers such as 1 + 2 and 3 + 0. We will learn where to spot 3 on a number line and how to find one more than 3. We will create three using a selection of resources and will understand how it is represented in other math resources such as on a dice face. 

Most importantly, we will learn how to represent 3 on a tens frame. We were introduced to tens frames last week and are really good at using them in our learning! Here is one below:
