Math in Nursery!



















In nursery we are so busy. Every day we are running around, playing and having so much fun. But where is all the learning?

Well we want to share how busy all your children have been while learning about Math and Mathematical language.

We have been playing “What’s the time Mr Wolf?” and having to count how many steps we move forward.

Through our drawing we use Math to make sure our drawings have  two arms, two legs and most of the time two eyes.

We look at the date every day at together time and we look at the date from today, yesterday and what tomorrow will be. We have to use Math to find out what number was before and what comes after.  We also look at our visual timetable to see what we are doing each day.

We use Math when we look at cook books and measure ingredients. We use Math to share with our friends and make sure everyone has a piece of play dough or a bowl of soup at the mud kitchen.

We learn to recognize our numbers and the amount they represent, when they are written or on a dice.

We use Math to understand that our buckets are full in the sand pit.

To count how many rungs on the ladder we can climb  and also to see how tall our block buildings are.

WOW!!! What a lot of Math we do  and this is only some of the activities we offer your children.

What Math do you do at home?

Please share on your ILD.

CLIC Targets – Week Beginning 15.03.21

C- I can count in tens verbally from 10 to 100. (10, 20, 20, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100)

We’d love to see any videos.

L- Terms

Please work on the terms
– more and less
– between
– before and after

Use the Splat Square, can your child complete the following:

Colour yellow the number that is 2 more than:
5, 7, 11, 15, 19, 20
Colour blue the number that is 1 less than:
9, 15, 19, 20, 6, 3
Colour pink the number before:
20, 18, 5, 6, 9, 4
Colour green the number after:
8, 25, 30, 32
Colour orange the number or numbers in between:
22 and 25

I- Doubles and halves within 20.

Please continue to work on your doubling and halving within 20. Particularly the halves for 12, 14, 16 and 18 as we are still finding some of these tricky to work out without the use of concrete materials.

You can work on Hit the Button to practise.

C-
Division:
I can share a number of objects in to groups
e.g. 15 ÷ 3
= 15 objects, shared equally into 3 groups
Remember to
Collect the number of objects you need (15)
Make space for the number of groups you need (3)
Take turns giving putting 1 object into each group at at time
Check at the end that each group has the same number of objects.
The number of objects in one group is your answer to your sum

Can you solve the following problems?

12 ÷ 3 =
16 ÷ 4 =
10 ÷ 5 =
20 ÷ 2 =
4 ÷ 4 =

We’ve attached some pictures of the example problem.

Please share some of the work you’re doing, pictures/ videos/ voice recordings are all fine!

Welcome back Primary 4. I am so glad to see you all! 

CLIC Targets:

C: I can understand numbers to 20

(12+8=20; 9+11=20 and so on.)

L: I am developing my understanding of my 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

I: I can turn 1 digit + 1 digit numbers into multiples of 10.

(1+7=8> 10+70=80)

C: I can add a 2 digit tens number to another one.

(20 + 60= 80 and so on.)

 

Spelling Sounds: ‘y=ie’ and ‘aw’

CLIC Targets – 15.3.21

CLIC Targets for P1 Term 3 Week 10

C – counting

For counting we are going to practise saying the numbers. You can go to 10, 20 or even 100 if you can manage. You can also try counting on from any number, and not always start at one. As a challenge try going backwards.

L – learn its

Learn its are number facts which we try to remember and quickly recall without working out the answer. We now have to remember the doubles to 5 –

1+1=2  2+2=4  3+3=6  4+4=8  5+5=10

You can also practise these at home. These facts are done orally and not written down at this stage.

I – It’s Nothing New

These are facts like our learn its but instead of asking What is one add one? we say What is double one?

Can you double 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5?

C – Calculations

This week we will focus on adding again.

Can you count two groups of objects altogether to find the total?

Use objects you have at home and form 2 groups to add together with different amounts. You could even try 3 groups of objects to add together.

Or practise your mental maths skills by adding in your head.

Some videos you may want to use.

And some games links.

Our week!

This week has been super busy again!

We have had another digital lesson with Miss Jackson and have learned more about the rainforest and the animals that live there. We also learned about why the rainforest is disappearing and some things we can do to help stop that!

We also did some digital learning this week and worked on Zip and Sumdog! We loved using the laptops!

We’re beginning to set our sights on Spring so we created some Spring Chicks (this also linked to our new sound this week, ‘ck’!)

Well done for all of primary 2 for such a lovely week!
