This week in Maths, the children are learning how to add together two sets of numbers to find a total. To begin their learning , the children were given a number card and were asked to work together as a group to find the 5 numbers that come before, and the 5 numbers that come after their number when counting in ones. To make the task even more fun, Miss O’Donovan let the children write on the tables, but shhh! Don’t tell Ms Thomas!
After warming up their brains, the children then worked independently to add together 2 sets of numbers using the dienes to help them. First, they partitioned their numbers, then they added together the tens, and then the ones and finally they added the tens and the ones together to find their answer. What a busy day we all had!
