Week 4

We wanted to build on the skills introduced with the Tell Me About ... activity that we started last week. So, this week I asked Year 1 to Tell Me About 12. This time the children quickly began to use 'turn around' facts e.g. if one person said that 10  add 2 equals 12 then others realised straight away that 2 add 10 must equal 12.

Zane introduced a multiplication fact and then Harriet and Ruby found more.

The children also liked finding ways of adding more than two numbers to make 12, e.g. adding 1,1,5 and 5.

Scarlett recognised that 12 is an even number.
