Here is your first Maths session about the number 8.
You can watch the Numberblocks video about the number 8. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08pgvmb/numberblocks-series-2-eight
Questions about Numberblock 8. What does Numberblock 8 call himself? What is Numberblock the similar to? What happens to Numberblock 8 throughout the video?
Then watch my videos. Don't forget to warm up ☺
Your activity is then to make number 8 monsters. Don't forget to post them on here.
Here is session 2 for Maths about the number 8.
Let's warm up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cORUvLQRI_Y Can you show me 8? Grow me 8? Stomp 8 times. Turn 8 times. Clap 8 times.
Then I want you to look at the pictures- What do you notice about them? Can you think of anything else that you think of when you think about the number 8?
We are going to have a making 8 using a number line. We need to know where the number 8 goes. What number is before? what number comes after?
Then your mission is to have ago at making number 8 (look at the last picture to help you). How many ways can you make the number 8? You can draw the blocks or use anything you have at home like Lego?
You can re-watch the Numberblocks to help you too: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08pgvmb/numberblocks-series-2-eight
Here is session 3 for Maths. I hope you all enjoyed the snow yesterday ⛄❄
Today we are looking at different measurements. We will use our knowledge from today and our knowledge of numbers up to 8 tomorrow too.
Today, we are going to focus on height and length. Let's think about the words which the monsters used. They used words to describe height (how tall something is). They said they were tall, taller and the tallest. We can use the opposite words to describe height such as small, smaller and smallest. We can also use words to describe the length (how long something is) such as long, longer, longest, short, shorter and shortest.
Look at my first photo. I have gone around my kitchen and found 8 items. What items do you think will be the tallest? What items would be the smallest? When laid down what item will be the longest and what will be the shortest? The first photo is just showing you the items I have. The second photo shows you the height of the items. I stood the items up. To work out the length I put all the items on the table flat to work out the length.
Now, I want you to find 8 items they can be anything (toys, teddies, food) to join in with the activity. You are going to work out which is the tallest, the smallest, the longest and the shortest. You are going to do this by putting them in order too. You can use language such as first, second and third all the way up to 8th.
Your mission today is to have a go at putting your 8 items into order. You can draw on pieces of paper 1 to 8 to help you put them in order.
I can't wait to see what you put in order 😊
Here is session 4 for Maths.
Today we are using our knowledge from today and our knowledge of numbers up to 8 tomorrow too.
You can recap the videos we looked at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqWvhs4uzPc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_97AO2SkGU https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-length-height/zdrx92p
We are still going to focus on height and length. We are going to look at our colour monsters too to end our last Maths session of the week.
Remember language we were using yesterday. We used words to describe height (how tall something is) such as tall, taller and the tallest. We used the opposite words to describe height such as small, smaller and smallest. We also used words to describe the length (how long something is) such as long, longer, longest, short, shorter and shortest.
Think about how you put your items in order and use that to help you today. You might want to draw a numberline to help you.
Your mission today is to have a go at putting our colour monsters in order. As well as answering questions about them!
I can't wait to see your answers 😊
