In Maths, we are focusing Place Value to 10. Children must be able to count forwards and backwards to/from 10 from any number, count one more and one less than a given number and compare numbers. We use lots of practical equipment to help us with our understanding of numbers to 10, such as part-whole models, tens frames, bar models. Much of this reinforces what the children have already learned in Reception. Here is the Knowledge Organiser that tells you all you need to know about what we will be learning!
Children must also be secure in knowing their number facts to and within 10 and be able to recall these rapidly. Children have access to iPads in class where they play 'Hit the Button' which helps with their rapid recall. This can be played for free on a desktop computer/laptop or purchased from the app store for £2.99 to play on a phone or tablet.
