Today we were visited by some Maths subject leaders from other schools who came to see Year 1's maths meetings because they had heard great things!
Today they wowed the adults with their amazing ability to answer questions in full sentences using a wide range of mathematical vocabulary.
Our focus in today's maths meeting was number bonds. First, we played 'Number Bond Tennis', please see the attachment for simple rules. Then, we explored different equations to see which ones we could use our knowledge of number bonds and which ones we could make easier by first 'making ten'. Have a look at the attachments to see the 'Make 10' strategy and a game of exploring some equations to see if it's easier to use number bonds or to make 10.
