We have been very busy learning new mathematical terms. Last week we learnt about 'same of different.' The children could copy my pattern from memory, show patterns in which there were the same amount of red counters as blue counters and show me the same amount of cubes as the number I was holding up.
We then moved on to more than, less than, greater and fewer. The children could tell me their pattern had more or fewer reds counters than blue counters. we then related this to numbers and the children created sentences such as 4 is less than 9 and 7 is more than 1.
We then learn how to show one more and one less than a number under ten using manipulatives.
I am really impressed with how the class are working in maths.
