Maths

 

On this page you will find resources to support the 'Count it' section on the 'Home Learning Grid'. Scroll down to the bottom for this weeks worksheets.

 

The main focus in EYFS is that children are secure with numbers to 20. Being able to place these in order from biggest to smallest and smallest to biggest. They should know what is one more and one less than a given number to 10 and then to 20. 

 

Children should be supported to correctly form their numerals 0 - 9. 

 

How can I support my child?

Count forwards and backwards daily - make it fun, count the teddies on the bed, the pasta swirls on the dinner plate, the birds in the sky, how long it takes to get dressed in the morning. The tricky one is counting backwards from 20 - 0. Play games like 'hide and seek' that require children to count backwards. 

 

Form numerals 0-  9 daily -  Please use the numeral formation sheet below to support your child's numeral formation. If they form their numerals incorrectly, repeat the attached rhyme for that numeral and this will support them. Use paint, flour, soapy water, shampoo, chalk to form numerals to 9 on different surfaces. 

Number bonds to 5 - WC 4th Jan
 
Topic 1 - The Gingerbread Man
 
Please use the Part part whole model sheet to support your child with their number bond work. They can simply use it as a reference, print it out and add peas, cubes, discs to it  to show how many different ways they can make 5. They may even choose to create their own. 
Number bonds to 5 recap and numerals 6,7,8 - WC 11th Jan
 
Topic 1 - The Gingerbread Man
 
Please use the Part part whole model sheet to support your child with their number bond work. They can simply use it as a reference, print it out and add peas, cubes, discs to it  to show how many different ways they can make 5. They may even choose to create their own. This week, ensure your child has a go at writing their number sentences. 
 
Numerals 6,7,8- How many ways can these be represented. Use the worksheets below. For an extra challenge draw your own representations. 
Understanding of 1-10 and recapping more and less within 10 - WC 18th Jan
 
 
Maths packs are now ready to collect from the office. These have been made for all children in Red Class. Please use the resources in the folder to support your child with their maths work. The video on the 'class story' page of Class Dojo will provide you with a breakdown of each resource and how it can be used. 
 
Addition within 10 and recapping matching a numeral to a quantity - WC 25th Jan
  
When we add two numbers together, we end up with a bigger number. Practice adding two numbers together using the Gingerbread Man Addition sheet from your maths packs. Start by building a number sentence using your counters and then challenge yourself by writing the number sentence for each one on a separate piece of paper. 
 
Remember to use the symbols + and = that we have been learning about in class. 
Comparing groups within 10 - WC 1st Feb
  
We will be comparing groups, with our key words 'more', 'less', 'the same' and 'equal'. When comparing groups, ensure the numbers of each group stay within 10. 
 
 
Number bonds to 10 - WC 8th Feb 
 
Please use the Part part whole model, tens frame and Numicon in your child's resource pack to support them with their math work. Once your child has started to understand the different pairs of numbers that add up to 10, they should have a go at writing these in number sentences. 
 
In order to cement the learning this week, we will be practicing a number bond rhyme which will help us to remember which numbers add together to make 10. It is important that your child understands that when adding, the number gets bigger. 
 
There are two worksheets this week. The one named challenge worksheet should only be attempted when your child is comfortable with number bonds to 10. 
 Number bonds to 10 - WC 22nd Feb 
 
It has been a whole week since  we last looked at number bonds to 10. Therefore, this week we will be revisiting this. We will be playing a 'Go Fish' game to match two numerals that when added together make the number 10. Please ensure, you child understands the process that to make the number 10 these two number are added together, and when we add, our number gets bigger. You might choose to demonstrate by making two groups of teddies, showing what happens when they all end up together.
 
The resource ideas that are on the grid, provide each child with an opportunity to see this process using concrete resources, this means they can see it happen physically. Once they are secure with this, then move onto creating their own through pictures (pictorially) and finally, writing their own number sentences (abstract). 
 
Please continue to encourage your child to practice the number bond rhyme. 
 
Addition within 10 and positional language - WC 1st March  
 
This week we will be practicing addition within 10. When adding two numbers together, please encourage your chid to place the biggest number in their head first, and then carry on the number, rather than counting from zero. So, for the number sentence 4 + 2 = please follow the following approach:
Place the number 4 in our head, and count on the 2. (4, 5, 6, our answer is 6)
 
We will also be looking at positional language through the use of prepositions. With several opportunities to explore the position of different objects, in a fun and hands on way.
