Week 5 - 04/05/20

Maths activities for the week:

This week we are looking at subtraction within 10. Using real objects the children can see that the quantity of a group can be changed by taking items away. Encourage the children to count all of the items at the start. take away the required amount practically, and recount to see how many left. 


Activity 1: Using fun foods (sweets, blueberries, cornflakes) count out up to 10 items then eat some and talk about the number sentence. Ext. you could write the number sentence down e.g. 10 - 4 = 6


Activity 2: Subtraction bowling, gather 5-10 empty bottles (shampoo bottles, water bottles) set them out in a triangle or line. Grab a ball and do some bowling. See if you can write a number sentence for each go. 


Activity 3: Have a go at a couple of these activities
