# Maths

We are now looking at the number 20.

We are getting good at recognising the numeral and being able to count out the quantity using a ten frame.

We are now looking more closely at our understanding of 20 and that the 2 stands for 2 tens in 20.

We are now looking at the number 19.

We are getting good at recognising the numeral and being able to count out the quantity using a ten frame.

We are now looking more closely at our understanding of 19 and the other teen numbers. This is so we all remember that the 1 in 19 represents a 10 and not a 1.

## Arghh! Pirating number bonds to treasure ten

For 2 weeks we are learning about number 18!

This involves how to make the number using part, part whole as well as being able to recognise it in and around different places in the environment.

As well as looking at number 18, we have also been exploring money and different coins. We have looked at 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins. The children can all recognise these coins and use 1p coins to add and pay for amounts up to 20p. We then began to challenge the children to using a range of coins (mixture of 1p, 2p, 5p, 10,p) to make the total quantity.

## Look at us use money!

This week our number is 17.

We are looking at how to make 17 using 2 amounts.

Today we made 17 using ourselves at snack time.

We counted 10 girls in our class and then 7 boys.

"10 is a part and 7 is a part and together the whole number is 17.

We are also looking at how to half shapes and numbers.

We have learnt that for a shape to be cut in to half each side need to be equal.

We have also learnt that to half a number, we need to share out each one and check there is the same amount on each side. We can only do this with even numbers!

## Look at use halving the shapes.

This week we have been learning about number 16.

We have been trying really hard to count up to and back from 16 but counting backwards can be a bit tricky!

Over the next two weeks we will be looking at the number 14.

We are learning:

how to count to 14

how to subtract with numbers to 14

how to double numbers up to 14
