This week in Maths we have been learning the meanings of ‘More and Less’ and working out to explain the difference between two quantities.
Children used 2 dice to roll 2 numbers up to 10. They then made groups of that many using counters and worked out which group had more and which group had less.
We also used number lines to work out the difference between two numbers. Two 10 sided dice were rolled and the children would mark those numbers and find the difference between the two of them.
To find the difference the children worked out which group had less and deducted the same amount away from the other group. Whatever number was left over was the difference.
