This week we have been investigating the number 6, looking at how many ways we can split 6 into two different groups, six sided shapes, shapes with 6 faces and capacity involving 6.
The children had to decide which shapes Mr Hexagon would like to eat providing them with an opportunity to reason why he wouldn't like particular shapes and discuss and recap their properties.
They also very much enjoyed playing with the water beads or 'orbies' as they have been nicknamed and counting up to six and beyond to fill the different containers.
This week we will be learning to count to and back from 5. We will also be looking at shapes in the environment which have 5 sides and 5 points and looking in detail at the composition of 5.
