Good morning everyone. Here is your morning dance song, it has good actions ,so get into your dance space !


Sharing Some Learning

Here are some photos showing some work from some of you, how lovely!


Making bundles ,bunches, groups of ten or friendly numbers to add

I would like you to use any materials you can find to show your sums. The challenge is to show how to make friendly numbers to add using these concrete objects . You can use small stones , cereal grains ,small sticks. I have photos of how I have used concrete objects I found in my house to show some sums.The sum  is 21 + 19 . I showed it using my pebbles, then moved the 1 over from 21 to 19 to make 20 and also remain with 20 on the other, as you can see in my next photo , my new and easier sum is now 20 + 20. Can you do this practical work today, making friendly numbers to add!

20 +20


Can you do these sums using concrete objects as I did, take photos and show us how you get along. Be creative!

22 +  38                                                                   12  +    28


144 + 66                                                                  76  + 14



Can you today measure the length or height of as many things as you can in your house. Make an estimate first ,then measure. Today I want you to work out how many centimetres off your answer was ,by how many cm or metres did you miss the correct answer.  You can draw out a table like this.
