Reception have been wowing me and Dita recently with their mathematical knowledge!
They are really taking their learning into their play and deepening their understanding around number.
This week the children have loved exploring the large numicon shapes and have been experimenting using them to double, make teen numbers and explore different ways of making the same number.
Some children are now able to formally record their learning without adult support.
”Look I made 4 with the 3 and 1… and then I did it again and it’s 8” Leo
‘Look I made 20 using 10 and 9 and 1. 9 and 1 makes 10, it’s the same shape’ Malakai
”This is 13 – look I can see it on the number line too” TJ
