CLIC Targets 31.5.21

CLIC Targets for P1 Term 4 Week 8

C – Counting

For counting this week we will looking at CORE numbers to 10. This involves having a greater understanding of the numbers to 10 by comparing, ordering, rounding and estimating. We will be looking at number stories (adding), greater than/less than and subitising (recognising how many objects without having to count).

L – Learn Its

Learn its are number facts which we try to remember and quickly recall without working out the answer. We have to remember the doubles to 5. We now also add two further addition facts and saying the multiples of 10 to 100.

1+1=2  2+2=4  3+3=6  4+4=8  5+5=10

2+3=5  2+1=3 (we also practise the switchers – 3+2=5 and 1+2=3)

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100

These facts are practised orally and this term we will start weekly written practise.

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.
