Week Beginning: 7th December


This week in Maths we will be learning the number 5. Start by listening to the story of Kipper's Birthday: How old is Kipper? Can you count the candles?

Next, have a go at singing 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive, have a try at showing the correct number of fingers to represent each number in the song. Can you show 5 in different ways using your fingers (for example, you may have 4 fingers up on one hand and 1 on the other), how many different ways can you show 5?

One of your activities this week is to order the numbers 1 to 5, can you then match the correct amount of objects to each numeral? Take a photo to record your work and perhaps you can upload this to Tapestry.

Another activity we would like you to try is to find one more and one less of numbers. Use a five frame:


Pick a number to represent and put an object in each box. Then take one away to find one less, how many do you have? Or add an object to find one more, how many do you have?

Then have a go at recording your findings using this table:
