## Week beginning 21st November 2022. This week we are identifying what goes with 10 to make larger numbers up to 19. The stem sentence is: "10 needs _ to make _; _ is made of _ and _. For example, 10 needs 1 to make 11; 11 is made of 10 and 1. Can you practise this with your child. We then identify the missing number in a part-part-whole diagram. We are continuing with our measuring. Below is an example of a worksheet that your child is doing using a ruler. Can you find other things to measure. We are also starting to use the language "before", "after" and "between" on a number line. What number is before 9? What number is after 13? What number comes between 17 and 19? Could you ask your child lots of these type of questions to help them build their skills. Thank you.

Week beginning 14-11-22.  In maths this week we are focusing on our number bonds 7, 8 and 9.

We learn these as part, part, whole.  If 7 is my whole number, what two other numbers can we use as the part numbers?  For example 1 part and 6 parts make the whole 7.  2 parts and 5 parts make the whole 7.  Could you repeat this process for the remaining parts and then follow the same formula for the whole numbers 8 and 9.

Knowing our part, part, whole and number bonds up to number 10 is so important and will help your child so much for future maths questions.  We would greatly appreciate your help in going through these on a regular basis with them.  Thank you.

Week beginning 7-11-22.  This week we are working out which numbers are odd and which numbers are even.  We are then identifying what would be one less or one more then any given number.  For example, one less than 5 is 4.  One more than 5 is 6.  Is the answer to both questions an odd or an even number?  What happens if we do two less or two more then any given number?  Would this new answer be an odd number or an even number?  Could you practise this with your child.

We are also continuing with our number bonds.  If the whole number is 6 and one part is 4, what would be the remaining part number?  Could you go through all the ways we could do this with the whole number 6.

## Week beginning 26th September 2022. This week we are focusing on number 9. What numbers added together make 9? Can your child tell you all the various ways. Remembering our stem sentence still.

Week beginning 20-9-22

This week we are learning all about doubles up to 10.  If I hold up 3 fingers on my left hand, how many fingers do I need to hold up on my right hand?

All the children know the stem sentence:

"  _  is made of _ and _

double _ is _"

For example:
