 Summer Term. Week 1. 1.6.20

  

Watch this lesson about ‘1 less than’. Can you say the number 1 less than any number to 20 ?

 

 

https://www.thenational.academy/

reception/maths/finding-one-less-than-a-given-number-reception-wk5-1#slide-2

Practise counting back from a number to 20. Start at different numbers: 18, 14, 11 etc. Challenge yourself and count back from larger numbers.

Everyday, practice counting to 100.

Count in 2’s to 20

Count in 5’s to 50

Count in 10’s to 100

Watch this lesson about finding 1 more and 1 less than a number (write numbers 1 to 20 in a grid. Throw objects on a number and say what number is 1 more or 1 less than that number:

https://www.thenational.academy/

reception/maths/exploring-one-more-and-one-less-reception-wk5-2#slide-2

Watch this lesson:

Investigate number combinations within 20 (share 20 objects between 4 bowls):

/maths/investigating-number-combinations-within-20-reception-wk5-3#slide-2

Just use your fingers to practice doing addition and subtraction number sentences using number to 10.

5+3=

9-3=

  

Summer Term 5 - Week 5 - W/C 18/5/20

 

Watch numberblocks: Numberblocks Castle

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08r3xqq/numberblocks-series-2-numberblock-castle

Using blocks or bricks, make a tower of 4 blocks, a tower of 3 blocks, a tower of 2 blocks and a tower of 1 block just like the numberblocks programme.

 

 

Use these blocks/bricks to help solves your own number sentences:

Choose 2 to start with:

1 + 3 =

Then choose 3:

1 + 3 + 4 =

And then all 4:

1+ 2 + 3 + 4 =

 

How many different number sentences can you make?

Practise counting in:

2’s to 20

5’s to 50

and 10’s to 100

Find 20 small items they could be bricks, buttons or 1p coins.

 

Group them together in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.

Count out 10 of these small items and write some subtraction number sentences.

Start with 10 and take 1 away how many do you have left?

10 – 1 =

Start with 10 again but this time take 2 away, how many do you have left this time?

10 – 2 =

Keep going until you take all 10 away, how many do you have left now?

  Summer Term 5 week 4. W/B 11.5.2020

 

When you are playing with your toys make up your own FIRST and THEN stories. For example: First there were 5 dolls, then 2 more came, there were 7 then 3 left, there were 4.

Write some number sentences using numbers smaller than 10 but practice COUNTING ON from the first number.

7 + 3, “7 (hold up 3 fingers) count them “7, 8 9 10”

Think of a number and start counting ON from that number. For example: 8…9 10 11 12

Keep going, think of different numbers and start counting ON from that number

Practice counting backwards, start from 10, count back to 0 then start at 20 count back to 0. Practice doing this everyday.

Write some take away number sentences using numbers smaller than 10 but use your fingers to help you COUNT BACK.

10-4, “10,9,8,7,6”

Draw all the different ways to represent 9. For example: draw a tally, fingers, domino dots etc

Summer Term 5 - Week 3 - W/C 4/5/20:

 

Watch numberblocks: Double trouble

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/

b08q4jkq/numberblocks-series-2-double-trouble

Find some objects at home to double and half just like the numberblocks?

 

Write the number sentences for objects you have doubled.

Compare different things in your house or garden?

Using the language ‘more’, ‘fewer’ and the same.

This plant has more leaves.

These minibeasts have the same number of legs.

Draw a part part whole model on a piece of paper (see example below)

 

Find 7 small items in your house, make 7 in as many different ways as possible.

Solve these missing part problems:

 

5 + ___  = 7

3 + ___  = 7

1 + ___ = 7

0 + ___ = 7

 

Use the part part whole model to help.

Can you write some of your own missing part number sentences to solve?

Play dominos at home, can you subitise the dots?

 

If you don’t have any dominos you can make your own:

Picture 1

 Summer Term 5 Week 2 W/B 27/4/20

 

Get 9 objects. Can you share them between two toys ? What happened ? Now share them between 3 toys. What happened ?

Write as many numbers as you can in order, start with 0.

Can you make up and draw your own snakes and ladders game.

Make your own number line either 0-10 or 0-20.

Roll a button or coin along it and say the number it lands on, then say the number one more and one less than the number.

Think of a number smaller than 10. Now write down all the different ways to make that number. For example: “6” is 3 +3, 7-1, 4+2, 1 more than 5, 1 less than 7. Write them down and send them to us.

Draw all the different ways to represent 8. For example: draw a spider with 8 legs, a dice, fingers etc.

Summer Term 5 - Week 1:

 

First you will need to go and find 10 items, they may be 10 building bricks or 10 cars or 10 pieces of pasta.  Remember to count them slowly and carefully like a snail.

 

Can you share 6,8,10 of them equally between 2 people?

What happens when you try and share 5 or 7 equally?

Can you write it in a number sentence?

Can you group the items into 2’s and 5’s.

Can you double 2,3,4 and 5?

Can you write it in a number sentence?

Close your eyes and take a handful of the objects. Count them slowly and carefully then write the number, make sure you form the number correctly.

Then write down one more and one less than the number of objects you counted.

Write down numbers from

1-10 on a piece of paper then cut them up into 10 pieces.

Jumble them up and put them back in order from 1-10.

If this is tricky do 1-5 if you want an extra challenge do 1-20 or 1-30.

How many different ways can you make 6 or 10? Use the objects to help

Can you try and record them in number sentences?

Can you see any patterns?

Before Easter:

Here are some maths challenges that you could choose to do at home. You could draw a circle and a line down the middle so it looks like a lady bird and find all the different ways to make numbers. 

How many different ways can you make 5?

Can you try and record them in number sentences?

Can you see any patterns?

How many different ways can you make 6?

Can you try and record them in number sentences?

Can you see any patterns?

How many different ways can you make 7?

Can you try and record them in number sentences?

Can you see any patterns?

How many different ways can you make 8?

Can you try and record them in number sentences?

Can you see any patterns?

How many different ways can you make 9?

Can you try and record them in number sentences?

Can you see any patterns?

How many different ways can you make 10?

Can you try and record them in number sentences?

Can you see any patterns?

 

5 + 0 =

4 + 1 =

3 + 2 =

2 + 3 =

1 + 4 =

0 + 5 =

What patterns can you see ?

+   Extra Challenge:  Can you divide your lady birds into three sections and find all the different ways to make sets using three numbers. For example:

3 + 3 + 2 = 8      4 + 2 + 2 = 8

 

 

 

 

 

Extra challenge:   Do your own missing number problems, copy these on some paper:

1 + ? = 8

 

1 + ? = 7

 

1 + ? = 9

 

1 + ? = 10

 

1 + ? = 6

 

2 + ? = 8

 

2 + ? = 7

 

2 + ? = 9

 

2 + ? = 10

 

2 + ? = 6

 

3 + ? = 8

 

3 + ? = 7

 

3 + ? = 9

 

3 + ? = 10

 

3 + ? = 6

 

4 + ? = 8

 

4 + ? = 7

 

4 + ? = 9

 

4 + ? = 10

 

4 + ? = 6

5 + ? = 8

 

5 + ? = 7

 

5 + ? = 9

 

5 + ? = 10

 

5 + ? = 6

6 + ? = 8

 

6 + ? = 7

 

6 + ? = 9

 

6 + ? = 10

 

6 + ? = 6

 

7 + ? = 8

 

7 + ? = 7

 

7 + ? = 9

 

7 + ? = 10

 

0 + ? = 6

 

8 + ? = 8

 

 

8 + ? = 9

 

8 + ? = 10

 

 

 

 

 

9 + ? = 10
