Y1 – Maths – fractions!

Today in Maths the children used salt dough to find one half of a whole! They were able to recognise that halves must be equal amounts, and some children even managed to find quarters!

Y1 Multiplication Carousel

The children were very resourceful during their maths lesson today. They completed a carousel of activities focussing on multiplication (groups of and repeated addition); division (sharing into equal groups) and doubling.

Y1 Maths

The children have been learning to multiply by 10. We used pieces of Numicon to support our understanding of how many groups we were multiplying by.

Y1 Maths – x 2!

Today, the children have been learning how to multiply by two! We looked at the symbol ‘X’ and different ways we say this and what this means. The children used numicon ‘2’ pieces to show their working out.

Y1 – Maths – capacity!

Today, the children enjoyed a hands on learning experience of capacity. They used different containers to estimate the capacity of each, using water. Some children guessed accurately, and even noticed that wider containers can have a larger capacity than taller ones!

Y1 Maths – measuring!

Yesterday, the children practised measuring using non-standard units such as hands, pencils and even whiteboards! They worked hard to measure accurately and start in the correct place.
