Please enjoy the Easter Break! Rest, play games and have lots of fun with your child.
** If you don't have any dominoes, have fun making some before you play. Remember to include doubles!
Can you write a number sentence for each double you can see/have made? For e.g. 2 + 2 = 4
How do you know you have made a double?
What is a double?
**Children need to understand that a double is when you have two of the same amount or two of the same.
Show your child two number sentences, one that is a double and one that isn't for e.g. 5 + 3 = and 4 + 4 =.
Which is the double?
How do you know?
Prove it to me.
To prove, your child could use objects, toys etc to make two lots of 4 and show how they have 2 of the same amount.
By the end of the Summer term the children in Reception should be able to confidently recall number bonds or pairs of numbers that make 10. If you feel this is a big step, start lower and work with your child to learn their number bonds to 5 to begin with.
Using 2 hands to be the ears, how many different ways can you show 5? 10? Show your child one example e.g. 2 fingers on one hand and 3 on the other; can they copy your 'ears'? Can they make 5 or 10 in a different way?
**For number bonds to 5 you could have...
1 in your hand and 4 in the bucket
2 in your hand and 3 in the bucket
For number bonds to 10 you could have...
2 in your hand and 8 in the bucket
4 in your hand and 6 in the bucket
