**Measuring with metre rulers.**

We used a metre ruler to find out if objects were

Remember to place the start of the ruler and the start of the object!

*'longer than a metre, a metre or shorter than a metre'.*Remember to place the start of the ruler and the start of the object!

**Maths Language**

Edward had 1 sweet and Mrs Lowes had 5 sweets.

We both ate one but I still had 4 left! Yippee!

*'How many more sweets do I have?'*We both ate one but I still had 4 left! Yippee!

This time Edward had 3 sweets and Mrs Lowes had 7 sweets.

*How many more sweets do I have?'***More Special Visitors**

Mrs Lowes' Mummy and Daddy popped in from England to say hello and play 'Elevens'!

**Recognising numbers to 100.**

*'Hunt the number'*

We had to guess a secret number by asking questions and then crossing them off our 100 square.

*Is there a 6 in the number?*If not, cross out all the '6 unit' numbers like 16,26,36 and also the '6 tens' numbers such as 61,62,63.

**Data Handling**

*'Which drink does the class like the best?'*

We asked this question and decided that we would need to collect some information.

*'Which colour does the class like best?'*

**'more than'**

We have been learning 'maths language' again! Although we know how numbers sit on a number line, putting that information into a maths sentence is so much more difficult! We practised completing the missing numbers in the sentence

*'.....is 1 more than....'*.**Data Handling and Measures**

Today we discovered the maths way of grouping objects! We weren't 'boys and girls', we were 'boys' and '

Mrs Lowes played a tricky game where we had to guess what the group was. Some of the groups were 'blue socks,

**NOT**boys'!Mrs Lowes played a tricky game where we had to guess what the group was. Some of the groups were 'blue socks,

**NOT**blue socks', 'PE Kit,**NOT**PE kit' and 'magic velcro,**NOT**magic velcro'. Sofia even tried to trick the class with 'earrings,**NOT**earrings' but as we now understand how to*'speak maths'*, nobody could catch us out!
