The G1 Learning engagements from 18th – 22nd November 2019 below. 


Students compiled a list of things that we use on a daily basis, and what needs to be replaced in G1. They were then able to share ideas with a partner/class and record in words and pictures.


Students worked with a partner to count forwards and backwards from any starting point. Use hundreds chart for support and for peer assessment. Students will add their name to a “I can count forwards and backwards” once they have been peer and teacher assessed with 4 accurate answers in a row. (from any number)

Students are given one piece of a number chart jigsaw puzzle, place it on a mini whiteboard and add the rest of the numbers to 100, or at least the numbers around the puzzle piece. 

Practiced using ordinal numbers. Students drew bead chains and indicated the position of particular beads using ordinal numbers.

Students used Numicon/base tens to build a number. Then they drew the number in different ways e.g. pictures/tally marks, had to write the number in both number and words.

Children practiced counting in 2s/5s/10s  finding patterns
