In our maths lessons we like to keep it fun by using lots of manipulatives such as unifix, counters, multi link, numicon etc. This week we have been looking at making numbers bigger than 20 by using these manipulatives. We looked at teen numbers and recognised that a number such as 16 is ten and 6 more by using the part models. Later we built these number using dienes so we could easily see that 16 has 1 ten and 6 ones.
Also, year 1 have been trying rally hard to practise our Christmas songs from the Bossy King, the children are really enjoying singing them and have been learning all the actions.
