Comparing groups of Objects

Use the Comparing to 5 PowerPoint below to get started.

Remember to use the language more, fewer, same and equal.

 

Use the questions in the slides to encourage your child to talk about the different amounts.

Or you can watch this simple video

Repeating Patterns

Watch the White Rose video, sessions 1 & 2: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/week-3/

 

Gather some natural objects from outside or some things from around the house. Choose two different things and make a repeating pattern with them.

 

How many different patterns can you make?

Draw or take a photo of your patterns.

Gather some vegetables and some paint. If you don’t have these you could use felt tip pens.

See how many repeating patterns you can make. You could make patterns with different shapes, colours and vegetables.

Draw or take a photo of your patterns.

Number of the Week

Watch Numberblocks S2 S4 (Nine). https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08phbzc/numberblocks-series-2-nine

Show a tower of 9 large Duplo blocks (or equivalent). Check the total is 9 by counting together, ensuring that they only say one number name for each block.

Whisper an instruction into their ear (e.g. take off two blocks). Ask them to describe the result, e.g. Now we have a 5 and a 4. Put them back together. It makes 9 again! Repeat for different arrangements, to show them how many different ways there are to make 9.

Make a Number 9 Poster. What facts do you know about number 9? Here are a few to get you started...

  • 9 is one more than 8
  • 9 is one less than 10
  • 5 and 4 makes 9
