**Challenge!**

If this domino shows 1 + 0, can you find the dominoes that have 6 dots?

**How do you work out 10-7?**

You can use your fingers to 'take away' 7,

You could draw dots and then cross out to 'take away'.

You can count back 7 on a number line or a 100-square,

*how many are left?*You could draw dots and then cross out to 'take away'.

You can count back 7 on a number line or a 100-square,

*which number do you finish on?***Money!**

We found out about the money that is used in Great Britain (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Island). We tried to put the coins in order form the smallest to the largest amount.

**How much is a sweet?**

We found out that 1p will buy 1 sweet in a shop.

Charlotte has 50p, 50 pennies so she can buy 50 sweets.

Lulu also has 50p but she has a 50 pence coin.

Charlotte has 50p, 50 pennies so she can buy 50 sweets.

Lulu also has 50p but she has a 50 pence coin.

*Which is easier to carry?**If Brynlee wants to buy 2 sweets, how much will they cost?***How will you pay for the toy?**

If the tractor costs 2p, which coins should you use to pay for it?

We thought of lots of different ways to pay for toys!

**Mathematical Words for 'add'.**

We discovered all the different ways to say 'add'. Please try to use a variety of them with your child so they are familiar with them.

6 + 2

6 + 2

*plus, and, add,**6 more than 2**6 and 2 make?**What is the sum of 6 and 2?**What is the total of 6 and 2?**How many is 6 and 2 altogether?***Length**

We have been using mathematical language to compare and describe the length of objects.

*Which paper strip is longer? shorter? the same length?*We drew stickmen and used blocks to measure them with.

*How many blocks tall is your stickman?**Is it taller than stephanie's stickman?***Doubling Numbers**

If you double a number you need the same amount again. We used dots to work out how many we would have altogether.

**Positional Language**

Handy Trick for remembering which way is left!

This is an easy game to play to help your child practise their mathematical language.

*Draw a house.**Underneath the house there is a cat.**On the right hand side of the cat is a flower.**On the left hand side of the house the sun is shining.**Above the flower is a cloud.***Another Positional Language Game**

We used the squared paper in our books to practise the mathematical language we have learned so far.

*Colour a square red.*

*The square on the right is blue.*

*Above the blue square is yellow.*

*Underneath the blue square is orange.*

*The square on the left of the orange square is purple.*

**Another game!**

This time we used blocks to build the pattern.

**Problem Solving.**

The children now know there are lots of different methods to use when solving problems in maths. We will practise them all in lessons.

It doesn't matter which method they use, whichever one they like is the right one! They may even choose different ones for different problems, depending on the question.

Ask your child to explain my (marvellous) drawings to find out what these methods are!
