Lets start off our maths with ordering numbers to 20 independently. It is good to keep revisiting areas of learning. This can be done using the game below.
This week we are going to learn about sharing and halving. Today the children are going to learn to share between 3 equal groups with even and odd numbers so that it is 'fair' or 'not fair'. You can do this by getting 3 plates or bowls. Give any amount of items to the children it could be cubes, grapes, sweets. Put them in one pile and get the children to count how many are there. Get three plates, bowls, etc model sharing the objects one on each plate at a time until they run out. Count out loud how many you have on each plate. Tell the children how many is on each plate and if there is any left over and say that it is fair or not fair. For today we are going to focus on odd and even numbers. Repeat this with the children up to the number 20 and get them to complete it independently. Ask the children what they might be able to do when it is 'not fair' and what could they do with the one left over.
Lets finish off our maths lesson by using our number lines we have made for the children to find out one more and one less of any number given.
Do you notice any differences about where Handa lives and where you live? Talk about families and the people you live with at home. Talk about people who may not live with you but are important to them, such as grandparents. Talk about pets that the children have or what pets they would like. Discuss how important it is to look after animals and how children can help to look after any pets they have at home. When you have finished the discussion can you make a house? You could draw, paint or collage your own home or use sticks or straws. What is your home like?
