Maths in Senior Infants is fun. We experiment, play and learn together. We concentrate on number formation from 6 up to 10 whilst perfecting our numbers 0-5 (which we learned in Junior Infants). One day a week, with our Resource teacher we concentrate on problem solving – this is quite tricking and different for us, but we are getting along nicely! We are always playing number games with Karen. We are very good at adding numbers up to 10 and we are starting to get comfortable with bigger numbers from 10 – 20. We play lots of dice games in the morning time when we are in before 9am – these are great fun. Karen says it is work but really its just fun with numbers!!! We have made number posters for 6 and 7 and they are stuck up outside our classroom. We love using the mini whiteboards and numicon shapes.
Making sure we can make number 6 correctly with playdough before we write it down.
