Reception Number Work
This week, we have been looking at number six, seven and eight. It has been fun exploring how the numbers are written, watching Numberblocks to learn a little more about the number and practically exploring how to make the number. Using our own number blocks, we made the number eight in lots of different ways. Below, are some direct quotes from the children as they worked practically to make the number eight.
“Miss, I have 6 and 2. It’s 8.”
“4 add 4. 8.”
“I have a big tower. It has 8.”
“My 2 towers together, double 8.”
“5 and a 3. 8.”
Today, during our group Maths session, we looked at part whole/partitioning numbers. Some of the children took this activity further by then writing their own number stories. It was good fun.
