Aims and objectives
The pupils will be able to order the numbers 1 to 10 and position
them on a number track. Pupils will be able to read and write the
number names up to 10.
Pupils are familiar and can recognise numerals 1 to 10. They
can count on and back in ones. They are familiar with some
of the vocabulary used in comparing and ordering numbers.
In the classroom
The first part of the activity is a teaching activity. Pupils
watch as number names appear on the screen. The names are
read out while the matching numeral is highlighted.
The second part of the activity asks the pupil to read number
names and click on the matching numeral. At this stage number
names appear in sequence.
To fully assess the pupils' understanding, the third part of the
activity shows number names at random. Again, pupils have
to click on the matching number. The more correct answers
a pupil makes, the more praise they receive.
This activity works really well if used with an interactive whiteboard.
Children can come to the board and, using their hands, drag and
drop the numbers onto the number line. For whole class, or with
groups of children, this provides an ideal opportunity for teachers
to engage the children in talking about their decisions.
The activity comes with a set of worksheets which can be printed
out for use in the classroom (see below).
|Support materials description:
|In the first worksheet, the pupil is asked
to match the number names on the left hand side of the page
to the matching numerals on the right hand side. This
can be done simply by drawing a line between the two.
|The second worksheet gives the pupil the number names and
asks them to write in the matching numeral by themselves.
|The third worksheet gives the numeral but asks the pupil
to spell the matching name. Number name posters in
the classroom can help any pupils experiencing difficulty. Alternatively,
more able pupils might enjoy designing a similar worksheet
for number names up to 20.
Stage – Early Learning Goals:
Key Stage 1 - Numeracy Strategy:
- Say and use the number names in order in familiar contexts
- Count reliably up to 10 everyday objects
- Recognise numerals 1 to 9
- Use language such as more or less, greater or smaller, heavier
or lighter, to compare two numbers or qualities
- Count reliably at least 20 objects
- Count on and back in ones from any small number…
- Read, write and order numbers from 0 to at least 20…
