Pattern 3 This is a very interesting repeating pattern
Pattern 4 This one uses 3 different colours
Pattern 5 This Kingfisher is very proud of his work
Pattern 6 A repeating pattern using pictures of picnic food

3D Shape

3D Shape 1 To help us learn about 3D shape we built models
3D Shape 2 We tried to name the shapes
3D Shape 3 We also counted the different shapes
3D Shape 4 We used cubes and cuboids
3D Shape 5 "I used 11 cubes and 1 cuboid"
3D Shape 6 It really helped us to learn about 3D shapes


Symmetry 1 This was our first work on ‘symmetry’ in Reception
Symmetry 2 We made symmetrical pictures with the Numicon
Symmetry 3 Lego is a fab way to make symmetrical pictures too
Symmetry 4 The blocks were carefully placed on the baseboard
Symmetry 5 We even made 3D pictures
Symmetry 6 The middle line is called the ‘line of symmery’
Symmetry 7 The colours on each side were the same
Symmetry 8 It really made us think carefully

Sorting Into Groups

Sorting Into Groups 1 This activity helped us to learn about ‘sorting’
Sorting Into Groups 2 We had to sort the objects into 2 groups...
Sorting Into Groups 3 ...whether we thought they would float or sink
Sorting Into Groups 4 Later we check our predictions in the water trough

Weighing 2 They can be used to compare the weight of objects
Weighing 3 Working with a partner is great fun
Weighing 4 We helped each other to complete the task
Weighing 5 It was great to experiment with the scales
Weighing 6 Great mathematicians at work
Weighing 7 “The heavier side goes down”
Weighing 8 “We found the heaviest object”


Money 1 We have been making money totals with coins
Money 2 We had to count them to make different amounts

Outdoor Number Formation

Outdoor Number Formation 1 We went outside to practise writing our numbers
Outdoor Number Formation 2 There were great places to write on
Outdoor Number Formation 3 We wrote in some very awkward places
Outdoor Number Formation 4 The clock face went from 1 to 12
Outdoor Number Formation 5 We also wrote on the snakes and ladders board
Outdoor Number Formation 6 Our number formation is getting better every day
