ELG Numbers: Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
This week’s focus will be all around doubling and halving.
Starter: counting in twos. I have attached the songs we like to sing.
Main Activity: today we are focusing on sharing out amounts. We are sticking with equal groups but instead of halving we are going to be sharing equally into lots of different groups.
There are lots of different challenges you can do with any amount between 1 – 100. Ask the child go and get amount of objects. They then must decide how many groups they are going to share this between. An example 45 objects split into 5 groups equally means there would be 9 in each group.
Remember any work needs to go into their green work home books and on tapestry please.
