Learning Activities for Monday

Good morning Class 1,

I hope you had a great half term.

Below are some learning activity ideas for today. Remember you can choose from the selection and we do not expect you to do them all.


Learning Objective/Focus:To find information about myself.
Main input (explanation)This week I would like you to make an autobiography. This is a book about you.

Learning Objective/Focus:To add by making 10 first. (bridging 10)
Main input (explanation)Bridging 10 is a method of adding two numbers whose total is greater than 10. Start by making the first number total 10 then add the remainder. For example if you were adding 9 + 4, make the 9 total ten ( by taking 1 from the second number) then add the remainder. Use the PowerPoint attached to help you.

Practice making 10. Knowing number bonds to 10 will help you to add by making 10.
Use building bricks to make towers to show the different ways of making 10.
Use a dice to make number bonds to 10. Roll one dice, what do you need to add to the number you rolled to make 10? Or you could try playing number bond bingo, snap or pairs.  
SHOULDSolve these by making 10 and adding the remainder. 9 + 5 =  
7 + 6 =  
8 + 7 =  
6 + 5 =
COULDUse a number line to practice adding by making 10. Try this first 7+5. Start by finding 7 on the number line. Make 3 jumps to get to 10. 7+ 3=10. Then make the remaining 2 jumps to get to 12. 10+2 =12 so 7+5=12  
Now try these:
