Maths this week

In Maths this week we have been looking at the comparison of quantities.  We have focused on developing this innate skill by encouraging the children to look carefully and use the language of comparison to describe sets of objects that they can  see.  Adults have modelled the language of ‘more than’ and ‘fewer than’ when describing how many objects they can see.

How you can help at home:

Set up a game of skittles , using empty plastic bottles or similar items.  Allow your child to try knocking them down by rolling a soft ball, then ask you child:

Who has knocked over more than[…]?

How do we know?

Who has knocked over fewer than […]?

Have fun and don’t forget to practice writing your numbers too.
