Starter: Practise making your number bonds to 10. Press the help button to display the 10 frame. This will help support their understanding.
Our learning intention today is to develop our understanding of number bonds to 10.
In Question 1 , the whole is broken into two parts, where both parts have an equal number of plants if they are split by the type of plant (as shown in the picture).
In Question 2 , different parts (the fish) are put back together into a whole. Reinforce this using the Part whole teaching tool, and demonstrate breaking a whole into parts, then combining the parts back into the whole and recounting.
• Question 1 : What can you see here? What is the same and
what is different about the plants? How could you break the
plants into two parts? If you break the plants like this (by
plant type), how many will go in each bag?
• Question 2 : What can you see here? How many fish are in
each bag? What will happen if both the bags (both parts) are
emptied into one tank (the whole)? Where will all the fish go?
How many fish will go in the whole tank?
Ask children to put a set of 10 counters in the whole of a blank part-whole model, break them up into two parts, then recombine them into the whole to check that there are still 10.
