Thursday 7th May

Good morning super Year 1's. I hope you are having a good week so far. I know how hard you are working, so you might be pleased to know that tomorrow is a bank holiday. You can have an extra day's rest. Your maths activity for today is below, but our other learning opportunities for today are on our 'Everybody Week 5' page. Just follow the link below and it will take you there. Magic!smiley

Our Maths Learning Today


 Hopefully we are developing confidence in  making equal groups of 2, 5 and 10. Today we will use pictorial representations to visualise equal groups. Some of you may like to use  concrete apparatus or objects for grouping (such as coins, counters, pasta, lego bricks etc...) to help. We will understand that some numbers will not create equal groups. For example, 15 will make 3 equal groups of 5, but no equal groups of 10  or 2 can be made. Some of you may see patterns and make a link between the numbers. For example, numbers that end in 5 can always make groups of 5 but not 2.
Ask questions such as:
How many groups can you see using the picture?

How many equal groups of 2 / 5 / 10 can be made?
Can equal groups be made? How can we check?
What makes a group equal? What will each group look like?
How can we make this group equal?
