10 Apples Up on Top

This week in Maths we have been revising numbers to 10. On Monday we read 10 Apples up On Top by Dr Suess and coloured our own character from the story before piling apples on their head. Your child should have brought these home to show you.

On Wednesday we played a game called 10 Apples up on top. Each pair needed a grip mat and dice, a game board and a bag of counters each. We had to try and be the first person to fill our tree with apples and pick them ff again. While we were playing we had to make sure we spoke to our partner about how many apples were on our tree and how many more apples we needed to fill our tree. We had lots of fun counting.

On Wednesday we also learnt all about the number 1. We read a story called ‘One Little Egg’ and brainstormed a list of things on our body that we had only had one of. We came up with a great list, including 1 heart, 1 mouth, 1 nose, 1 tongue, 1 neck, 1 chest and even 1 bottom. We then took a walk out in the playground and looked for things that were in groups of 1. We found lots… Have a look at our slideshow below.

On Thursday we learnt all about the number two. We read a story called ‘Two Bunny Slippers’ and brainstormed a list of things on our body that we have two of. We came up with a great list, including two eyes, two ears, two feet, two elbows, two hands and two knees. We then took a walk out in the playground and looked for things that were in groups of 2. We found lots… Have a look at our slideshow below.

Can you find things around your house that there is only one of?

What about things that are in groups of two?
