In Badger class, we really enjoyed our first ‘formal’ Maths lesson today! We follow the Mathematics Mastery scheme which you can look at online. We are hoping to have a workshop soon to tell you all about it!
Today we were looking at how to use a ‘Tens Frame’. We used this to represent and compare numbers, using cubes and number cards. We worked in partners today, but it will be a mixture of pair work and individual work during lessons. We used a big picture of the Goldilocks and the 3 Bears story to practice representing numbers with cubes. We were able to then use this to compare numbers by picking two number cards and working out which was the greater number.
Great maths work today, Badger class!
