To begin with, we practised our counting to 100 through circle games. We then talked about the word 'estimate' and made some sensible estimates when Miss Wright showed us a group of objects very quickly! We did some accurate counting using different strategies then had a go at ordering different sets of numbers from smallest to largest. We then made a giant number line in the classroom and placed the numbers accurately.
On Wednesday we had a special visitor! Charlie the Crocodile came to teach us about recognising if numbers are greater than or smaller than each other using the symbols < and >. Charlie likes to eat the BIGGER number because he is rather greedy! We also learnt that when two numbers are the same, they are equal to each other so we use the symbol =.
What a fantastic first week!!
