What’s Happening in Maths

Grade 1 has been exploring such terms as half, third, sharing, and
double with various scenarios. We will be moving forward with such
games as ‘Guess the Rule’ and ‘What’s the Missing Number’ ( . + 3 = 5
or 4 = 6 – . ) which explore the relationship between numbers. We
will also be reviewing concepts studied earlier in the year such as
place value, money coins, telling time and representing numbers in
different ways such as in words, tallies, coins, rods and cubes.

Feel free to practice at home with different ways of representing a number
sentence.

3 + 5 = 8 or 8 = 3 + 5
5 + 3 = 8 and 3 = 8 – 5
8 – 3 = 5 as well as 8 – 5 = 3

We will be sending home fact triangles shortly so you can practice
these number sentence families.
