Monday 6th July 

Today I want you to have a go at finding 1 more than a number. 

Choose some objects - you will need 10! 

 

For each question, count out the first amount, then add one more - the answer will be the next number you would say if you are counting on. So one more than 6 is 7 - because 6 comes after 7! 

 

I have written you ten number sentences to have a go at...

 

5 + 1 = 

6 + 1 = 

7 + 1 = 

8 + 1 = 

9 + 1 =

 

What do you notice about the answers above?

 

4 + 1 = 

3 + 1 = 

2 + 1 = 

1 + 1 =

0 + 1 =

 

What do you notice about the answers above?

Tuesday 7th July 

Today I want you to have a go at finding 1 less than a number. 

Choose some objects - you will need 10! 

 

For each question, count out the first amount, then take one away (subtract one) - the answer will be the number you would say next if you are counting backwards. So one less than 5 is 4 - because 4 is one number smaller than 5!

 

I have written you ten number sentences to have a go at...

 

6 - 1 = 

7 - 1 = 

8 - 1 = 

9 - 1 =

10 - 1 = 

 

What do you notice about the answers above?

 

5 - 1 = 

4 - 1 = 

3 - 1 = 

2 - 1 = 

1 - 1 =

 

What do you notice about the answers above?

Wednesday 8th July 

Today I want you to practise one more, one less. 

I am going to give you a list of numbers - can you write the number sentences to find out one more and one less by yourself?

Thursday 9th July 

Today I want you to have a go at estimating - this is making a sensible guess about how many objects you can see before counting to check. 

 

It's really important that you just have a quick check and don't count them until you've made your guess!

 

Questions for each picture:

  • how many do you estimate?
  • how many are there actually?
  • did you make a sensible guess/estimate?
  • did you guess more or less than the actual amount?

Friday 10th July 

Today I would like you to start learning to count in 2s. 


I have found a video that will hopefully help you - can you move along to the music too?

It starts with counting to and from 20 as a warm up, and then at 1:05 he moves on to count in 2s. See if you can have a go a few times and then remember it afterwards.

Below are some pictures - can you count them in 2s rather than 1 at a time?
