This week we have been learning to make 2 digit numbers using straws/lollipop sticks.

We were choosing a number e.g 13 and counting that many straws. Using elastic bands we ‘bundled’ the ten together. This means we can represent 2 digit numbers in tens and ones.

10 + 3 = 13

At home can you have a go at making 2 digit numbers by making a group of 10. You could use straws, lollipop sticks, pencils or anything else you can find!

Once you have practiced making numbers – you could use this strategy for addition.

Now put the tens together to count.

Now we know that the tens together make 20. We put 20 in our heads and count on the ones.

13 + 14 = 27

Have a go at adding 2 digit numbers for your home learning this week. Have a look at my maths too.

This week we have been reading the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. Can you tell someone at home what happened in the story?

What was your favourite part of the story? What would you do if a tiger came to your house?

For your home learning this week, we would like you to find out some facts about tigers.

What do they eat? Where do they live? Can they purr?

Draw a picture or write the facts that you found out.

This week we went on a super safari!!

For your home learning this week can you draw a map of the safari park? You could use the map below to help you draw your own. Add as many details as you can!

Once you have finished drawing your map, can you add some labels? What did you see?

You could write some sentences to describe the animals or say which one was your favourite and why?

1L-Safari and Dinosaur Forest!

Today was a fantastic day!

We were so excited on the coach!

What a busy day…

Thank you to all the parents who helped us today! Well done 1L for behaving so well. I hope you enjoyed your day as much as I did!

This week in Maths we have been practicing adding by counting on. We helped Handa from our story count all of the fruit in 2 different baskets.

Can you have a go at adding by counting on at home? You could use cards, dice or a random number generator on the internet to choose numbers to add.

Once you have 2 numbers count each number out. You could use things you find in your home to help you like buttons, counters, beads or raisins.

Then put the biggest number in your head and use your finger to point and count on the next number. Don’t forget to record your number sentences.

7 + 4 =

As a challenge you may want to try adding 3 numbers together.

Don’t forget mymaths and numbots is also available for you to use.
