Our maths lessons are a mixture of practical learning, games and book work. I encourage the children to be independent learners by knowing where our resources are and accessing them if they should need to. We will be doing counting practice every day, as well as mental arithmetic. On Thursday, we have our problem solving lesson, where the children are encouraged to work together and think systematically to solve problems. The children love this because it is a fun and interactive lesson with lots of trial and error.
Our Math topics for the Autumn term are as follows:
Week 1: Place value
Week 2: Place value
Week 3: Addition using a number line
Week 4: Subtraction using a number line
Week 5: Subtraction (finding the difference)
Week 6: Measurement
