Year R have been learning how to write and form the number 9 correctly this week. Our topic is Pirates and Mermaids. Did you know that pirates like to bowl? We have been bowling and explaining our learning, in sentences, by saying how many skittles had fallen over and how many were still standing up. We have been thinking about how we could represent the 9 skittles using a tens frame and counters. In continuous provision, we have been exploring the number 9 and the different parts that make it.
