Maths and Numeracy


My! It has beena while since we updated this page! We have been so busy working hard in class that we have neglected to update our maths page! So here goes…

Over the last few months we have covered lots of different topics in maths, such as measure, weight, capacity, data handling and practicing our Learn Its!

Just now in maths, the Circles and Rectangles are learning their 2 x tables. Have a look at the video below as it has a great song to help you learn your 2 x table.

The Triangles are learning their numbers to 100. See if you can sing along to the video below!



This week we have been doing somethign a little bit different in maths along with our maths topic. ~In class we have been practicing how to add using fingers, objects, numberline, couting on etc. Now we are memorising our number facts to 20.

Each week Mrs Harvey will give us 3 sums to learn on a Monday for the week. On a Friday we will be doing a Big Maths Beat That test, where we have 30 seconds to do as many sums as we can, including the ones we have been learning. Each week we have to beat our score from the pervious week, that is why its called ‘Beat That’. We are relaly enjoying it so far!

This week our ‘Learn Its’ are:


3+7 = 10

5+2 = 7

Each week we will be getting new ‘Learn Its’ but we still need to practice the ones we have been learning before!


In maths our topic is symmetry. We have been learning how to use a mirror in order to show if a shape or picture is symmetrical or not. We have been placing our mirrors on a line of symmetry and if what we see refelecting in the mirror, is how our shape or picture looks when we take the mirror away, then it is symmetrical!!

In maths this month, we have been learning about the time. We have been learning to tell the time using o’clock and half past. We have been using both digital and analogue clocks to do this.

Have a go at playing the games below to practice your time telling!!

Our new maths topic is about halves and quarters. Today we were learning about halves. Take a look at the powerpoint below to learn about halves and how to use them properly!



It’s been a little while since this page was last updated! Before Christmas we were learning about money! We were working with 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins to make values up to 20p. We enjoyed setting up shops and will be revisiting this topic again this term. Below is a game you could do to help you to practice!

This term we have begun to learn about time. We have been telling the time using o’clock and half past and wil be moving on to quarter past.

Have a look at the games below to help you to practice telling the time…

In maths, we are learning about money. We have started to add up the value of 1p, 2p and 5p coins.

Today we were learning how to count up in 5s. We managed it really well and Mrs Harvey moved us all up the pledge for our super efforts!!



In Maths, the Circles and Rectangles are learning to count to 100. We have been using a number square to help us today! We will be learning numbers between, numbers afer and numbers before a given number on the number square! Below are some games you can play at home to help you, click on the link!

The Triangles are learning to add and subtract within 20 using cubes and then numberlines to help them. Here are some games for you to play at home:

Boys and girls below is a maths websites with lots of games that you can try at home!


Tip: Remember if you need help with counting, you can use teddies, pennys or cars at home to help you! You can make your very own numberline too! 🙂



2D Shape


In maths we are learning about 2D shapes. We have been learning that:

A triangle has 3 sides and 3 corners

A square hase 4 equal sides and 4 corners

A rectangle has 4 sides and 4 corners (it has 2 longs sides and 2 short sides)

A circle has one round side but no corners

A pentagon has 5 sides and 5 corners

A hexagon has 6 sides and 6 corners


Here is a shape song to help you to remember your shapes:


Odd and Even Numbers


Published on September 26, 2012 in Uncategorized. 0 Comments

Today we have been learning about odd and even numbers. We have learned a chant to help us to remember the even numbers:

2, 4, 6, 8 Even numbers are great!

The only number that is missing from our chant is 0 because numbers ending in a 0 are also even numbers!

The chant helps us to look at the last number in 2 digit numbers to find out if the number is odd or even.

We made some houses to put on our maths display to make a street with odd numbered houses on one side and even numbered houses on the other. Hopefully it will help us to rememeber which numbers are which!
