For today's starter we would like your child to practice writing numbers between 90 and 100. Say a number between 90 and 100 and your child writes it down, taking care to form their numbers correctly. Practice all the numbers but do them out of sequence for more of a challenge.
Adding Equal Groups
Yesterday you were working on understanding and recognising equal groups. Today you are going to build on that by adding equal groups. At this stage we are not formally exploring multiplication but are laying the foundations for future learning. The purpose of today's lesson is to use equal groups to find a total.
In Year one, our focus is counting groups of two, five and ten.
Use objects around your home and arrange them in equal groups of two, five or ten. Get your child to practice finding the total by counting up in the number there are in the group. Look at the example in the video below.
Discuss how many groups there are and what the total is. In my example, you would get your child to explain that there were eight groups of two and that made a total of sixteen.
Once your child is confident at counting in groups of two, five and ten, try the problems below.
- Today we are going to explore questions including question words and the punctuation of a question mark.
Have a look on the Year 1 section of the video resource centre on the website to find today's Question lesson.
Below are a range of different images to help you think of some questions you might want to write. You can think of your own. Don't forget to use the question words above to help start your questions and the punctuation ? at the end of your questions.
