Maths Overview for Autumn Term
We are currently exploring addition and subtraction within and up to 10.
We continue to use our fingers to count and we also subitise. Subitising means using patterns/shapes to identify a number such as a dice pattern for example.
We spend a lot of time using practical objects to ensure understanding of basic concepts.
We use a part, part whole method when recording. We combine the parts to make the whole number. We use language such as '5 needs 3 to make 8' or 'how many does 5 need to make 8?'.
We also use a bar model which is a similar method.
We use number lines and number tracks to count forward and back to solve a number problem.
Please use the number rhymes below to help your child practise writing their numbers.
