Maths Standards Wall

Since our interactive board was fixed and we have been doing maths warm-ups in Room 6 again we have had a big focus on our maths standards learning wall.  So far the children have been mainly focusing on counting forwards and backwards in ones, twos, fives, and tens which has supported by both classroom warm-ups and learning sessions.

The Children all have a goal that they are trying to achieve.  Initially this was teacher selected, but now that the children are getting the hang of it they will select their own.  They then use their spare (or 'can-do') time in class to practice these independently.  When they feel like they are achieving this goal they write them name up in a special space, so we can check them during the day or maths session.

This morning we introduced the children to a new maths warm-up focus of 'what makes 10' and the video below is one that they enjoyed using and wanted shared on our blog so they could revisit it at home and at school to practice for their maths standards wall and our current classroom strategy focus.
