Sorting Objects

 

What is sorting?

Sorting means grouping by characteristics (e.g. size, shape, colour, type). It is good practice to sort objects into groups before counting. 

 

Can you answer the questions below?

 

 

Numbers to 10

 

Recognising Numbers:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Can you name the numbers above?

 

Counting:

 

 

Counting Forwards:

Can you complete the number tracks below?

 

 

Writing the Words:

 

 

Can you have a go at writing the words from zero to ten?

 

Counting backwards:

Stand up tall, just like a rocket, and begin to slowly crouch down to the ground as you count backwards. Remember to blast off when you reach 0!

Counting More and Less

 

Finding 1 more and 1 less

 

Can you find 1 more and 1 less than the numbers in the middle boxes?

Use the number line below to help you.

 

 

 

Finding more than and less than

 

Can you find which number is more than or less than the other?

Think about our crocodiles. Which number do they eat? The bigger number or the smaller number?

 

Look at the 2 numbers in the boxes. Can you draw the right symbol in the middle to show which number is bigger?

 

 

Can you show us in pictures?

Look at the amount of pictures in each box. Do you need to draw a smaller number or bigger number of objects on the other side?

 

 

As an extra challenge:

Can you write a sentence to tell us which number is bigger and smaller for each question?

Remember we always write the first number at the beginning of our sentence.

For example; 5 is less than 8. 7 is more than 3.

Addition and Subtraction

 

Number Bonds

 

We have been exploring our number bonds to 10.

Can you remember all of your number bonds up to 10?

Remember when we write them, what happens to each side of our number sentences?

0 + 10 = 10

1 + 9 = 10

2 + 8 = 10

3 + 7 = 10

4 + 6 = 10

5 + 5 = 10

6 + 4 = 10

7 + 3 = 10

8 + 2 = 10

9 + 1 = 10

10 + 0 = 10

Can you use the ten frames to help you complete the number sentences?

 

Addition

 

We built our own addition number sentences using cubes and counters.

Maybe you could write your own addition sentences and use items around your house to help you count.

 

When we write addition number sentences, we need to remember the important parts. The numbers that we are adding together, and our symbols. Add '+' and equals '='.

7 + 3 = 10

 

 

We looked at how to add using pictures. To help us count, we used counters. Maybe you could use something similar or tick the objects once you have counted them to help.

 

As an extra challenge:

Can you solve these addition word problems? You might want to highlight or circle the numbers to help you with your addition. Can you write the number sentences to show us how you have worked out your answers?

 

 

Subtraction

 

We have looked at subtraction, or 'taking away'. There are lots of different ways that we explored to help us with counting backwards.

In our number sentences that we have looked at, the first number is always bigger than the second number. We know that our answer is going to be smaller than the number we started with.

For example:

9 - 4 = 5

When we write subtraction number sentences, we need to remember the important parts. The numbers that we are taking away, and our symbols. Subtract '-' and equals '='.

7 - 3 = 4

 

First, we looked at subtracting by crossing out images to help us count back.

Can you have a go yourself?

 

 

Next, we looked at subtracting using pictures to help us.

Can you have a go? You might want to cross out the pictures to help you count back.

 

 

Then we tried subtracting using number lines. We know that we need to jump backwards on our number line when we subtract.

We did a brilliant job with this in the classroom, but maybe you could answer some more questions for us to help you practise?

 

 

As an extra challenge:

Can you solve these subtraction word problems? You might want to highlight or circle the numbers to help you with your subtraction. Can you write the number sentences to show us how you have worked out your answers?

 

Shape

 

2D Shapes

 

We have been looking at 2D shapes. Remember this means that the shapes are 'flat'.

How many 2D shapes can you remember?

We looked at the properties of 2D shapes:

Sides - the outside edges of our shape (these can be straight or curved).

Corners - the point where the sides meet.

Challenge: Can you remember the fancy name for corners?

 

I wonder if you could practise drawing these 2D shapes? Can you tell me how many sides and corners the shapes have?

 

 

3D Shapes

 

Next, we looked at 3D shapes. Can you remember the difference between 2D and 3D shapes?

The properties that we need to look at with 3D shapes are different to 2D:

Corners/Vertices - the point where the edges meet.

Edges - where the faces meet.

Faces - the flat sides of the shape (these can be completely flat or curved).

 

How many 3D shapes can you remember?

I wonder if you could tell me how many edges, faces and corners these shapes have?

Challenge: Maybe you could try drawing some of these shapes, or maybe even try making them?
