2 Times Tables

We have been learning our 2 Times Tables. This is a song wehave been singing to help us. We love Percy Parker! Due to the size of the file, only half the song is in the video.

Number Bonds to 10

Still image for this video
We love this quick and easy song. It has really helped us to remember them.

We are looking at number bonds again. Being able to recall these facts will help us with our maths learning throughout our lives.  In addition to the Farmer Pete song you will find in the Autumn section below, we have been learning this song (to the tune of Row, Row Your Boat):

9 and 1 are number bonds,

8 and 2 are friends,

7 and 3,

6 and 4, 

5 and 5 are twins!

 

We have spent some time looking at 3D shapes. We went on shape hunts both outside and in the classroom and sorted shapes using a Venn diagram.  We have also made 3D shapes using marshmallows and matchsticks - it's much harder than it looks. We had to think about the properties of shapes to be able to make them. 

We were very resilient when making these 3D shapes. We used language such as 'edges', 'vertices' and 'faces' to discuss what we were doing. This really helped us to understand the similarities and differences between shapes.

We have been learning about odd and even numbers. We conducted an investigation into what makes numbers either odd or even. How do we know? What makes a number odd? What is the difference? We sorted numbers into odd and even based on our findings.

 

We then conducted another investigation to find out what happens when we add two odd numbers together. We found out that when we add an odd number and an odd number togeter we get an even number. When we add an even number to an even number we get an even number. The only time we get an odd number is when we add an odd number and an even number together! We had lots of fun finding things out for ourselves.

 

We also learnt a song to help us to remember that numbers ending in 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 are always even; numbers ending in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 are always odd. We can now sort 2 digit numbers into odd and even! Mrs Jones is very impressed.

 

0, 2, 4, 6 and 8,

0, 2, 4, 6 and 8,

0, 2, 4, 6 and 8,

Even numbers are really great!

 

1, 3, 5, 7, 9,

1, 3, 5, 7, 9,

1, 3, 5, 7, 9,

This is my odd number rhyme!

 

We love investigating and reasoning in our maths lessons!

We have been doing lots of problem solving and using mathematical language in our lessons. We love maths!

Spring 1

 

 

We have really enjoyed investigating in maths. We have use lots of practical resources and used mathematical language to discuss our findings.

Autumn 2

We have been continuing to practise our number bonds to 10.

 

We have also been learning that inverse means the opposite and that addition is the opposite of subtraction. We have started to learn how to solve missing number addition calculations using subtraction. Mrs Jones is very impressed with us!

7+ __ = 10

10-7=3    so, the number missing from the first calculation is 3!  7+3=10

 

We are now very good at counting in steps of 2 and 10.  We are learning how to count in 5s to 100.  We really love the song we are using to help us to remember.

Autumn 1 2016

In weeks 4 and 5 we were learning our number bonds to 10. We find using our hands really useful for this as we know we will always have 10 digits in total. We have been learning how to find the bond to ten by putting the first number of fingers up and counting how many are 'hiding'. Eg How many do I add to 7 to make 10? (Children will put 7 fingers up and count the remaining fingers) The children will give the answer 3.  We are aiming for children to remember these number facts and then the bonds to 20 by the end of the year.  They have made a great start!

 

We have been using a song to help us to remember. The children LOVE Farmer Pete!

When we started ordering numbers we looked at all the numbers to 10 and 20 and put them into the right order.

We used number cards and playing cards to do this. Once we could do this, we then moved on to 3 or 4 numbers and we can now put them in order from smallest to largest. We know that if we have the numbers:

 

       2       15     6      5

 

The correct order (from smallest to largest) is:

 

    2    5   6  15

 

 

We are getting really good at this now!  smiley

Doubling Machine song

Placeholder for audio player [Will play '09-doubling-machine.wma']
We have been learning about doubles. The children have been learning that double means two parts or groups exactly the same. They have also learnt that we can find doubles by counting in 2s. This is a song the children have enjoyed singing to while we have been learning about doubling.
