Minute maths moment.
First thing this morning Fran asked for some sums so i felt obliged to oblige! So i gave her a load of money ones to do, using pictures of coins and she happily added those for a while, one set being groups of 5ps and 10ps, which she spotted corresponded to the 5x table. Then she did a load of adding up of numbers in the teens, among other things and we spent a bit of time working on breaking down a sum like 13+14 into more manageable sums; i started by showing her that she could think of it like the money ones she can easily do and that got her confidence. She could do it easily, but i am wary of overstepping her “only do it if its easy” mindset, so we left it there. Now would be the perfect time to retry Miquon… if i could find the time! lol!
Anyway, at that point my friend Jenny turned up with her youngest, roughly Ammi’s age and they all had a lovely time. When Fran had had enough she played Zoombinis. And then it was time for the nursery run and they were all pooped. For bedtime tonight we had Katie and the Sunflowers – i think Maddy was a bit baffled by pictures coming to life, but still!
