This week in Year 1 our Maths is all about subtraction. Subtraction equations to be exact. We begin each Maths lesson with a practical experience using counting equipment, in this case, multilink cubes. The children then move on to a pictorial representation of their concrete experience. Finally the children record their equations using numerals, "-" and "="
As you can see we have also begun our writing work this week with a role play session for the story "Handa's Surprise" We watched the story and then acted it out with the children playing the parts of Handa, Akeyo and the African animals. We then began the writing process by making a story map. We have begun to retell the story using this map to help us.
