Counting and number recognition are skills that young children will learn through games, activities and play. The more you talk about numbers and point them out in real life, the more inquisitive they will be. Just like exposure to reading and books is so important, the same applies to numbers. Try playing ‘number detectives’ and look for numbers when you are out and about. Try to count whenever you get the chance (walking up steps, counting crackers for lunch, counting how many shoes etc). They key to counting is learning one to one correspondence (pointing to each item and allocating it a number).

Exploring patterns.


Basic math skills in preschool set the foundation for learning more advanced math concepts later on.  Patterning is one of those important early skills.  Thankfully, patterns are easy and fun to teach!

How do we teach patterns?   We can notice them, hear them, and physically make them.  Here’s a simple progression you might want to use when you teach patterns:

  • ABAB  (red, blue, red, blue)
  • ABC (car, truck, plane, car, truck, plane)
  • AABB (crayon, crayon, pencil, pencil, crayon, crayon, pencil, pencil)
  • AAB  (Cheerio, Cheerio, raisin, Cheerio, Cheerio, raisin)
  • ABB (stomp, clap, clap, stomp, clap clap)

 

Today’s White Rose ‘starting with a story’ activity also explores patterns.

 

Storytime

 

Today’s activity is based on the story ‘The dinosaur that pooped the past’ by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter.

Exploring patterns.


Basic math skills in preschool set the foundation for learning more advanced math concepts later on.  Patterning is one of those important early skills.  Thankfully, patterns are easy and fun to teach!

How do we teach patterns?   We can notice them, hear them, and physically make them.  Here’s a simple progression you might want to use when you teach patterns:

  • ABAB  (red, blue, red, blue)
  • ABC (car, truck, plane, car, truck, plane)
  • AABB (crayon, crayon, pencil, pencil, crayon, crayon, pencil, pencil)
  • AAB  (Cheerio, Cheerio, raisin, Cheerio, Cheerio, raisin)
  • ABB (stomp, clap, clap, stomp, clap clap)

 

Today’s White Rose ‘starting with a story’ activity also explores patterns.

We will also be exploring patterns.

Why pattern awareness important.
Spotting underlying patterns is important for identifying many different kinds of mathematical relationships.  It underpins memorization of the counting sequence and understanding number operations, for instance recognizing that if you add numbers in a different order their total stays the same.

The activity Pattern Making (attached below) focuses on repeating patterns and suggests some engaging ways of developing pattern awareness, with prompts for considering children’s responses. Children can make ‘trains’ with assorted toys, make patterns with twigs and leaves outside or create printing and sticking patterns in design activities.

It’s never too early to explore numbers with your child. Real life often provides the best opportunities to develop early maths skills like counting and recognising numbers. Each day we will provide you with ideas that will help your child to explore numbers, giving them a great start to developing early maths skills and concepts.

 

Talk about numbers around you

Numbers are all around us, from calendars to the remote control, the telephone to car registration plates. Try pointing out numbers when you’re out and about – on front doors, signs, the front of buses and train platforms. Talking about numbers around you early and often will show your child that numbers are part of everyday life. Choose a 'Number of the Week' and see how many times you can spot this number, around the house, out in the street or in the supermarket.

 

This week’s number is number one

Beginning to explore numbers

It’s never too early to explore numbers with your child. Real life often provides the best opportunities to develop early maths skills like counting and recognising numbers. Each day we will provide you with ideas that will help your child to explore numbers, giving them a great start to developing early maths skills and concepts.

1. Listen to and sing songs and rhymes

Sing – even if it isn’t your strong point! Singing songs is a good way for children to become familiar with counting. Don't worry if they choose the same songs again and again!

This week we are learning ‘Three little frogs sitting on a well’. The rhyme is attached below.

Marvellous Maths – Number bonds to ten

Number bonds are also referred to as “number pairs” and are basically just pairs of numbers that add up to a given number, such as 10. For example, 5 + 5, 6 + 4 and 7 + 3 are all number bonds that make 10. Children learn these to help them understand the relationships between numbers.

Activities for number bonds: 
1: Pennyland Shop 
Try setting up a pretend shop where everything costs a penny. Give your child 10 pennies to spend and make sure you (the shopkeeper) have 10 items they can buy. If your child wants to buy 3 things, ask them how many pennies will be left afterwards. As the shopkeeper, ask your child if they think they would have enough pennies to buy another thing, or maybe even another item after that?

2: Tower of Ten 
Start with a specific number of building blocks, say two, and ask your child how many more blocks they would need to make a tower of ten.

Marvellous Maths – Shapes

 

Shapes are everywhere and they are one of the first things children learn. Why are they important? Simply put, they help us make sense of the world around us.

Activities for shapes: 
1: Shape hunt Look around the house/room for shapes that are like a circle, square, rectangle or triangle. You could play Air Shapes – draw the shape in the air and see if you child can guess what it is. An alternative could be to draw the shapes in the sand at the beach, or in the mud at the park…

2: Build a house 
As your child grasps the basic shapes, introduce them to more complex ones such as 3D shapes and shape names. You could build a house with building blocks, felt or in a drawing while talking about the different shapes you would need to make the roof, the house, the windows, the chimney, and so on.

Marvellous Maths –  Estimating and learning about quantities

 

Estimating and learning about quantities are both important skills for enabling children to come to judgements about numbers, and to understand the idea of what might be “too little” or “too much”. Children love guessing games and so they naturally learn how to estimate.

To understand quantities, children need to understand what an amount really means (this is useful when they come to do simple addition and subtraction) so that they can recognise that seven items in a group also means seven items in terms of quantity.

Activities for estimating and quantity: 
1: Guessing games 
Ask your child if they can guess how many toys are in a bag, or biscuits are in a jar, then ask them to count them up to see whether they are right.

2: Numtums games
Fun games to play with your child to help them learn numbers 1-10. 

 

Today’s ABC Does activity – Paint Car Rolling

Chat about marks and trails you see in nature.  You can adapt this idea by sticking snail pictures either side of a car as if it was a Snail leaving it’s trail. 

 

I hope you have fun today trying out some of these ideas. 

 

Remember having adventures outside, role playing, cuddling up with a real book and chatting about everyday chores are also wonderful ways to enrich imagination and language.

 

Warm wishes,

 

Sally and the EYFS Team

Story of the Week – The Snail and the Whale

 

This week we are learning from the book The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson.  It’s such a super story and lends itself beautifully to water play, role-playing, discussions about weather and travelling around the world.

 

Follow this link to hear the story again.  This is a lovely version where the reader is using different voices and having fun with the rhythm of the text.

A Maths Song

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/number-songs-from-numberblocks#playlist

 

Marvellous Maths –

 

One more, one less

Learning about “one more” and “one less” than a given number is important for estimating and being able to assess quantity, and leads on to simple addition and subtraction.

Activities for one more, one less: 
1: Sticky notes numbers 
Write the numbers one to ten on sticky notes, stick them in a row, then ask your child to pick a number and quiz them on which numbers come before and after the one they have chosen.

2: Secret number 
Think of a number, then ask your child to guess your secret number. Tell them that, for example, your secret number is “one more than 6” or “one less than eight”. Ask your child to come up with their own secret number too and try to find out what it is. You could play this sitting on a bus or a train and look for numbers on the bus or in the carriage – a bit like I Spy! – to start the game off.

I have really loved hearing that a lot of the children have been enjoying the online phonics lessons.  They have loved going to Mrs. Hyde’s classroom before the lockdown to learn the Set One Speed Sounds and I’m so pleased to hear that some of you are continuing with this at home.  If you are not don’t worry they will be covered when they begin school but if you’d like to start then you can follow these links to get started.

Marvellous Maths – Number recognition

 

Recognising numbers is one of the most important early steps for maths. You can begin by pointing out lots of different numbers to your child, such as the numbers on front doors, on the front of buses, on T-shirts, on television. After a while your child will recognise that the word “two” can also be written as a number “2”.

Activities for number recognition: 
1: Number spotting 
Can be done anywhere! Talk about the numbers on buses, front doors, price tags or even on the back of footballers’ shirts.

2: Numbers Hunt 
Hide some cut-out numbers from 1-10 around the house and see if you child can find them – ask them to shout the number out loud when they find it.

3: Tower of cups 
Building a tower of ten cups and counting them up as you build will help your child understand that numbers have a value.

What next? 
Once you think that your child has “got it” try moving them on to the next stage. Pretend to get the answer wrong by asking them “is this one number 4?” and see if you child corrects you. Telling them that they’re better at this than you are will boost their confidence: nursery aged children really respond well to this.

Marvellous Maths – Grouping and Sorting

Grouping simply means sorting objects into sets of things with similar characteristics, and is important for beginning to understand what things share in common. It is a very simple concept for children to pick up – and you can encourage them at home in all sorts of ways!

Activities for grouping and sorting: 
1: Blocks or bricks 
Ask your child to sort these into groups of different colours or shapes.

2: Fruit bowl

You could ask your child to arrange all the apples from the fruit bowl into a group, then arrange all the oranges into a separate group – then ask how many there are in each group.

 

What next? 
When they’ve got their groups sorted, ask them to think about which group has more things in it – then count to see if they were right.

For a guide on grouping and sorting, please follow the link;

Marvellous Maths – Matching

You may also hear this referred to as “1 to 1 correspondence”: basically, this means that an object corresponds to another object, or an object is matched to a number. This skill helps young children when they come to simple addition and subtraction, because they can already recognise that ‘”4” means 4 things or objects – and that they have to count to 4.

Activities for matching:

1: Count out toys

For a very simple game that helps with teaching children about 1 to 1 correspondence, ask your child to give you a certain number of toys, for example “can you give me four marbles?”

2: Dominoes

Matching the dots on one domino to those on another domino is great for developing matching skills and really helps children to get the idea of what “four” looks like.

Marvellous Maths – Ordering numbers

When your child’s getting confident with counting they’re ready to start trying to order numbers – i.e. put them in the right order. Take any opportunity you get to jumble up numbers and ask your child to put them back in the right order. Start with 1-5 then move on to 1-10 when you feel they’ve grasped it.

Activities for ordering numbers: 
1: Toy car park Stick some labels on ten toy cars and number them 1-10. Draw ten parking spaces in a line on some paper/card and see if your child can park the cars in the right order.

2: Number fish 
For this game, get your child to pretend to be a fisherman and try to catch the “number fish” in the correct order from the pretend lake – for this you can cut out paper fish and write a number from 1-10 on them.

What next? 
For both games, once your child has parked the cars or caught the fish in the right order, jumble them up and see if they can re-order them.

Watch the Numberblocks episode ‘How to count’

I have also attached a ‘ordering numbers’ cut and stick activity.

Marvellous Maths – Number Recognition

Recognising numbers is one of the most important early steps for maths. You can begin by pointing out lots of different numbers to your child, such as the numbers on front doors, on the front of buses, on T-shirts, on television. After a while your child will recognise that the word “two” can also be written as a number “2”.

Activities for number recognition: 
1: Number spotting 
This can be done anywhere! Talk about the numbers on buses, front doors, price tags or even on the back of footballers’ shirts.

2: Numbers Hunt 
Hide some cut-out numbers from 1-10 around the house and see if you child can find them – ask them to shout the number out loud when they find it.

3: Tower of cups 
Build a tower of ten cups and count them as you build, this will help your child understand that numbers have a value.

What next? 
Once you think that your child has “got it” try moving them on to the next stage. Pretend to get the answer wrong by asking them “is this one number 4?” and see if you child corrects you. Telling them that they’re better at this than you are will boost their confidence: nursery aged children really respond well to this.

Supporting behaviour: Tantrums

How can you support your 2-year-old's behaviour? Especially when there are tantrums?

Monday 18th May

 

Good morning Nursery

I hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend and are ready for another week of home-learning!

Children are learning all the time. All of the things you do with them - from chatting as you change their nappies to counting out apples in the supermarket and debating whether to cut sandwiches into squares or triangles for lunch - their brains are taking it all in. However, two-year-olds (and older!) can be challenging. Their developmental stage means that they can be very determined, but also impulsive. This will change as they develop language but in this "in between" stage they can be become very frustrated as they struggle to communicate their feelings. Pacey (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) have provided a short series of videos that might make this phase a little easier.

Marvellous Maths – Spinderella by Julia Donaldson

This is a lovely story all about a spider who wants to learn about counting and numbers.

Here are some ideas of how you can continue counting at home;

  • Sing number rhymes like 5 little ducks or 5 currant buns. BBC radio is a great place to listen to number rhymes online, click here to listen.
  • Count as you move – you could count stairs, count steps or count jumps.
  • You could count on your way to school, how many traffic lights do you see, how many buses?
  • Count as you get ready for school – how many shoes do you need? How many socks?
  • Count at home – how many people in your family? How many bedrooms in your house?
  • Count out food – can you eat three chips?
  • Count as you tidy – let’s see how many cars there are to put away 1,2,3,4
  • Play your own games and keep score.

Shapes

Shapes are everywhere and they are one of the first things children learn. Why are they important? Simply put, they help us make sense of the world around us.

Follow the link for a  video guide about shapes

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/help-your-child-with-maths

Activities for shapes: 
1: Shape hunt

Look around the house/room for shapes that are like a circle, square, rectangle or triangle. You could play Air Shapes – draw the shape in the air and see if you child can guess what it is. An alternative could be to draw the shapes in sand or in the mud!

 

2: Build a house 
As your child grasps the basic shapes, introduce them to more complex ones such as 3D shapes and shape names. You could build a house with building blocks, felt or in a drawing while talking about the different shapes you would need to make the roof, the house, the windows, the chimney, and so on.
