* Recall number bonds to 10 - These are two numbers which when added together make 10 e.g. 6 and 4, 7 and 3, 8 and 2.

* Recall number bonds to 20 - These are two numbers which when added together make 20 e.g. 16 and 4, 17 and 3, 18 and 2.

* Find a missing number within 0 to 100.

This week in Maths have been learning to compare Weight and Mass. We have used mathematical language to describe and compare the weight of objects within our classroom.


 Key Vocabulary: heavier than, lighter than and equal to.


Our lessons this week have been very practical!

We used balance scales to support out understanding.  


Below are some of the examples we have used in class for reasoning and problem solving skills which gave us an opportunity to apply our learning. 



Problem Solving and Reasoning


We have been learning to compare the two sets of scales using <   > =



Can you compare the two sets of scales using the symbol     <    >    =
