Murray class enjoyed their maths lesson today where they were consolidating their learning about odd and even numbers and then placing them on a number line between two markers.
We started by reminding ourselves of the odd and even numbers and then used this to help us when identifying whether a 2 digit number was odd or even. When looking at a 2 digit number, we have to look at the ones digit to know whether it is odd or even.
We started by identifying odd and even numbers between 0 and 10, then extended out thinking to 10 and 20. We then chose our own markers to challenge ourselves.
We had great fun using the numicon, post it notes and number lines to secure the concept with concrete materials before moving to our books.
Well done Murray Class!
