We have read the story of 'The Tiger Who Came To Tea' by Judith Kerr during our Literacy sessions. We found out that it would be Sophie's 10th birthday very soon and she wanted to have 10 candles on her cake. The problem was that she wanted some red candles and some yellow candles but she didn't know how to arrange them. We arranged red and yellow candles on a birthday cake with a partner to find all of the different ways that Sophie could use the candles.
We have continued to work very hard to learn the pairs of numbers that add together to make 10 since helping Sophie with her birthday cake. We have been using our fingers, number lines, unifix cubes and bead strings to help us to calculate some of the number bonds correctly.
