Hi all, wondered if anyone could offer ideas for a very practical, fun numeracy lesson for a group of 20 reception kids? i am being observed and want to make it wow! Any strand of maths will be fine!

 

thanks with much begging, anje! :o

Hi there, I did weight for my observation and it went great. I had clear plastic jars filled with different things e.g corks, pasta, cotton wool which I passed around for the children to feel the weight and discuss with their partner which they felt was the heaviest and lightest. We went on to choose 2 to weight using balances to eliminate the heaviest and then weighed the last 2. The children ordered them from heaviest to lightest. I had signs with the words on too. Worked quite qell and the children enjoyed the hands on bit. Hope this is of some use?
