Next week in maths we will be looking at position and turns.
- Half a turn
- Full turn
- Three quarter turn
This week in Maths we have been learning about weight. If something is heavy or light. We have also used balance scales.
Please can you help your child to understand what the numbers represent. They are able to count forwards but we are still struggling to count backwards from a given number.
12 has 1 stick of ten and 2 ones.
This week we are looking at fractions.
We are focusing on one half (1/2) first.
Use the link below. It has activities which you can do on your computer at home.
Please continue supporting your child to count in 2s, 5s, and 10s. Choose one times tables a week for the children to practice. Use objects around your house to show what 2+2+2= actually looks like. Remember it is just repeated addition. The same number being added again and again.
We have noticed some children are 'adding' every calculation. They need to check to see if it is a subtraction or addition. Then use the appropriate methods modelled in class to work them out.
Down below you will be able to read the curriculum which is taught in Year 1. This has been taken from the Direct Gov website.
