In maths, we have been busy learning everything there is to know about numbers 1-4! We have been learning to count aloud to 4, to recognise the numerals 1-4, to write the numerals as well as recognising and making shapes with 1-4 sides. We've also had some visits from our Concept Cat who has taught us about the concepts: 'after', 'same', 'different'. This will help us greatly with our number learning.
One of the most important things we have been learning to do is to count carefully. Here are our careful counting rules:
1. We say the numbers in the right order (1, 2, 3, 4)
2. We say one number for each object as we point to it
3. The last number we say is how many are there (e.g. '1 banana, 2 bananas, 3 bananas, 4 bananas... there are 4 bananas'
4. We count each number slowly
We helped Numberblock 3 to count correctly when she got a little muddled. Here is the episode we watched: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08cr24d/numberblocks-series-1-how-to-count
In the last two weeks before half term we were going to be looking at Number 5. See the resources below to get started with some Number 5 learning! You can watch the Numberblock 5 episode by following the CBeebies link at the bottom of the page.
Don't forget to keep checking Tapestry too as will be posting regular maths activities :-)
