This week we listened to the story of Leaf Man as part of our learning about Autumn and made pictures of our own leaf man.  We compared leaves and looked at similarities and differences.  Watch the video link and go on your own leaf hunt.  Can you find 3 different leaves?  Can you describe them?

This week we have introduced the concept of 1 more.  We looked at a numberline to 10 and worked out that 1 more is the number after a number because we are adding 1 more.  We used objects to show how we can find 1 more.


Using toys or other objects ask your child to find a given number of objects eg 4.  When they have counted out 4 ask them what 1 more is.  They need to understand that they need to add another object to show 1 more is 5.  We ask the children to explain their answer by saying the sentence 5 is 1 more than 4 etc.  Please start by finding 1 more to 5 and when the children are confident to 5 work up to 10.
