Marvellous Maths Stay and Play

Sunday 27 January 2019

Thank you to those of you who were able to attend the ‘marvellous maths’ stay and play last week. It was great to see so many of you there and the children enjoyed sharing their learning with you.

The teacher taught part of the session focused on the number 8. We focus on numbers to twenty throughout the year to get a depth of understanding of what the numbers represent. We talked about what number 8 looks like – not just the numeral but also what it looks like in our environment. For example, 7 flowers and 1 tree – that makes eight!

The activities part of the session allowed the children to apply the skills practically. There are 6 counting principles which children must know in order to be able to count well.

Thank you for all the fantastic feedback. In response, please find some links below available to download and print to support learning at home.

If you were unable to attend, your child will be bringing home an information sheet with ideas of how to support your child at home. The children also enjoy watching number blocks – a great conversation starter about numbers!
