Extra Maths Support - Year 1
Each week, inevitably, there are some children who are unable to succeed on the age-related expected objectives. These extra support activities can be done by a teaching assistant with a small group of children. There are two activities for each week, linked to the maths in Hamilton’s plans for that week. Each activity consists of a detailed but simple bullet-pointed lesson outline for the TA and a Child Sheet. These intervention activities, if used consistently as you go along, have the potential to make a lot of difference to the children who are below ARE.
Ten turns (1): Comparing numbers to 20. Spider's exercises (2): Counting on and back in 10s.
Spider adds (1): Adding 10 to 2-digit numbers. Spider subtracts (2): Subtracting 10 from 2-digit numbers.
Mystery sums (1): Finding how many more are needed to make 10. Totally ten (2): KNowing pairs to 10 by heart.
Behind the wall (1): Describing 3D shapes. Time jigsaws (2): Telling the time to the hour on analogue clocks.
Smelly socks! (1): Counting in 2s - 'clever counting ' and early multiplication. Good dog!(2): Using grouping to divide by 2, then 5.
Count the pennies (1): Finding total of two coins (10p, 5, 2p and 1p). Sweet shop (2): Finding change from 10p.
Make a number (1): Finding pairs which make 5, 6 or 7. Little brother, big brother (2): Using pattern and number bonds to work out related additions, e.g. 3+2 = 5, so 13 + 2 = 15, 4+3 = 7, so 14+3 = 17.
