This week the year 1 children have been exploring adding numbers to cross over 10. We have been learning to add numbers and using number bonds to make ten first. We have been thinking about the different steps to take to solve calculations. We began by representing the number sentence on a tens frame and moved on to using a number line to represent the number line. An example is shown below of how we have been working out sums to bridge ten first in maths this week.
For writing this week the children completed their stories based on Somebody Swallowed Stanley. The stories we wrote were about a plastic straw and it’s journey in the ocean with the other sea creatures.
