Active Maths - Counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
The children have really impressed us with their counting so far this week! Today we looked at the patterns counting in 2s, 5s and 10s created when marked on a 100 square. We acknowledged the digit/s in the ones place when counting in the multiples and why certain other numbers wouldn’t be said when counting in 2s, 5s and 10s (e.g. 76 would not be said when counting in 5s from 0 as there isn’t a 0 or 5 in the ones place; 13 wouldn’t be said when counting in 2s from 0 as it is an odd number). We also looked at counting in 10s from digits other than 0, noting that the ones digit must remain the same.
The children worked in teams to collect number cards then looked together at the numbers they had and worked out the sequence - 2, 5 or 10 - then corrected any mistakes. Have a look at the teamwork and fun had!
