New Tollcross Counts Topic πŸŒˆ

We kicked off the new topic today at our Numeracy Assembly – Combining and Partitioning Numbers.

This is all about splitting numbers up and building numbers in different ways. We will be doing a lot of work on Place Value with this, focusing on Thousands, Hundreds, Tens and Ones ( previously known as units) and more!

Here are some useful websites for you to explore at home:

Numeracy At Tollcross

All of the classes started their new Tollcross Counts topic this week – Sequencing and Ordering Numbers.

Lots of impressive ideas and maths vocabulary being used in the Numeracy Assembly yesterday. #madmathsskillz

Some games and activities for home:

Door numbers can be used to play a few games whilst out and about- trying to guess the next door, noticing odd and even patterns.

Money can also be used to order the value of coins or even order the prices from your shopping.

You could create sequences using numbers at home – ages, birthdays, favourite numbers, heights etc.

You could play the supermarket memory game ‘I went to the supermarket and I bought…’ but include numbers of items that have to be in order lowest to highest or highest to lowest.

Online ordering & sequencing games

This topic fits well with measure. This could be ordering different food items at home for weight or even putting household objects into size order ascending and descending.
