Maths

Week beginning 18th January 2021 

This week in Maths we are learning about doubling and repeated addition. 

Practical activities you can try: 

- You can use a mirror to help your child see doubling. Put a mirror next to a selection of objects ask the children to count the objects and the objects that they see in the mirror. 

- Ask your child to paint half a butterfly or lady bird. Fold over the picture when wet to print the same image on the other side of the paper. Count up all the spots together. (This shows a similar idea https://www.youclevermonkey.com/2016/04/teaching-double-numbers.html) 

- Play a snap or pairs game. Write down numbers and their doubles on paper. Play a game of snap or match up the cards with their doubles.

Practical activities you can try: 

- Ask your child to write down counting in 10s/2s. Can they notice a pattern? 

- Ask your child to help pair up socks/sort shoes whilst counting in 2s. 

- Try throwing a ball to each other and see how far you can get counting in10s/2s without dropping it. 

- Write down a number track of counting in 10s/2s but make a mistake. Can your child spot where you have gone wrong?
