Week beginning 11th may 2020

For our mathematics this week will continue to explore materials with a focus on the ‘Seaside’ and maths concepts developed from role play in the Seaside café.

Sort, count and classify food and drinks in the seaside café.  Count cakes, sandwiches, strawberries etc.

Change the words to the nursery rhyme ‘five currant buns in the bakers shop’ to for example ‘five ice creams in the seaside café, cold but tasty with sprinkles on the top’.  Perhaps you could make five cardboard ice lollies with a number written on each one (to develop number recognition) and use the rhyme to practise counting down.

Have a go at writing numbers to price up food in your seaside café.

Practise rote counting and touch counting on a regular basis.

Encourage the children to make comparisons between café food.  Encourage the use of comparative language e.g. big, small, middle sized, bigger, smaller, heavy, light etc.

Setting the table is a great way to develop one to one correspondence and a wide range of maths skills!

Practise counting with the number rhyme one two three four five once I caught a fish alive...
