In Maths, our children have been using resources such as coloured pegs, beads, teddy bears, counters and cubes to make patterns. For example, yellow, green, yellow green, etc.
The children identified and created their own repeated pattern. They were able to explain that a repeated pattern is an ordered sequence, in this case using colour. This will enable the children to sequence and order number later on in the year.
Our children used the language big, bigger, biggest, small, smaller, smallest to order size of an object. The children were then able to order different objects around the classroom.
Our children have been learning to count by moving the object as they count them. They first selected a number card. They identified the number on the card and counted that number of objects using 1:1 correspondence.
