Year 1 – Maths – Wednesday

Morning year 1.

Today we are asking you to use your creative and Maths mind! In year 1 we learn how to work out 1 more and 1 less from a given number.

Can you create you own 1 more and 1 less game. You will need to draw 3 of the same picture that you can place objects on to show 1 more and 1 less. To generate the first number you could use a dice, 2 dice or number cards.

Take a look at these examples below.

After creating your board with 3 pictures on, you can use objects from around your house to help you show 1 more and 1 less than your given number. For example, pencils in a pot, pennies in a jar, sweets in a tub, LEGO blocks, pasta, small toys. Be as imaginative as you like.

Finally enjoy a game of 1 more and 1 less. If you are up for a challenge select a bigger number to start with.

Have fun! We look forward to seeing what you have created!
