Stockbridge Counts – Counting forwards & backwards

Our current focus across the school is Counting forwards and backwards.

From Monday 4th September to Friday 13th October

What will this look like for my child?

Counting forwards and backwards within Early Level (Nursery and P1, but earlier or later for some)

Count forwards

  • numbers in the range 1 to 20,
  • then 1 to 30,
  • (then 1 to 100);
  • ordinal numbers
  • starting from 1, then other starting numbers

Count backwards

  • numbers in the range 1 to 10,
  • then 1 to 20, then 1 to 30

Counting forwards and backwards within First Level (P2, P3 & P4, but earlier or later for some)

  • Count forwards and backwards in ones from x to y, within 100 then 1000
  • Count forwards and backwards by 2’s from 2 (e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8, …)
  • Count forwards and backwards by 10’s from 10 (e.g. 10, 20, 30, …)
  • Count forwards and backwards on the decade by tens (e.g. 20, 30, 40, …)
  • Count forwards and backwards by 5’s from 5
  • Count forwards and backwards by 3s from 3
  • Count forwards and backwards by 4s from 4
  • Count forwards and backwards by 6s from 6
  • Count forwards and backwards off the decade by tens (e.g. 37, 47, 57, …)
  • Count forwards and backwards by 100s on the hundred (e.g. 200, 300, 400, …), on the decade (e.g. 350, 450, 550,…) and then off the decade (e.g. 172, 272, 372,…)
  • Count forwards and backwards by halves (e.g. ½, 1 ½, 2, 2 ½,…)

Counting forwards and backwards within Second Level (P5, P6 & P7, but earlier or later for some)

  • Count forwards and backwards by 7s from 7
  • Count forwards and backwards by 8s from 8
  • Count forwards and backwards by 9s from 9
  • Count forwards and backwards in multiples off the times table (e.g. count in 3’s from 4)
  • Count forwards and backwards in decimal tenths (e.g. 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, …)
  • Count forwards and backwards in multiple tenths (e.g. 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, … )
  • Count forwards and backwards in simple fractional steps

Counting forwards and backwards working towards Third Level (S1 – S3 but earlier or later for some)

  • Count forwards and backwards within, and beyond, any times table
  • Count forwards and backwards in decimal tenths off the tenths (e.g. 3.83, 3.93, 4.03, 4.13, …)
  • Count forwards and backwards in fractional steps (stating equivalent fractions where possible) (e.g. ¼, ½, ¾, 1, 1 ¼, 1 ½, 1 ¾, 2, …)
  • Count forwards and backwards for positive and negative numbers (e.g. forwards from -7…, -6, -5, -4, …)

STOCKBRIDGE COUNTS – ADDITION & SUBTRACTION

OUR CURRENT FOCUS ACROSS THE SCHOOL IS ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION

From Tuesday 18th April to Friday 25th May

What will this look like for my child?

Addition and subtraction within Early Level (Nursery and P1, but earlier or later for some)

  • Count items in one collection
  • Establish a collection of a given numerosity (e.g. get me 6 counters from the group)
  • Count items in two collections
  • Count items in two collections
  • With first collection screened
  • With second collection screened
  • With both collections screened
  • Explore adding using a count-on strategy
  • Explore doubles and near doubles
  • Know doubles (1 to 5)

Addition and subtraction within First Level (P2, P3 & P4, but earlier or later for some)

  • Add using a count-on strategy
  • Subtract using a count-on or count-back strategy (e.g for 5 – 3, count on from 3 to 5 or count back from 5 to 3)
  • Use doubles (and near doubles) in addition sums
  • Add numbers to 20 using number bond facts, bridging through ten, doubles and near-doubles
  • Subtract numbers to 20 using counting back, number bond facts, bridging through tens
  • Add 3 numbers together (e.g. 7 + 2 + 6)
  • Know and use addition and subtraction family facts (e.g. 6+3=9, 3+6=9, 9-3=6, 9-6=3)
  • Add on multiples of ten to a 2-digit number (e.g. 45 + 20)
  • Subtract multiples of ten from a 2-digit number (e.g. 72 – 40)
  • Add tens and units with no regrouping (e.g. 34 + 21)
  • Subtract tens and units with no regrouping (e.g. 76 – 35)
  • Add tens and units with regrouping (e.g. 65 + 27)

Subtract tens and units with regrouping (e.g. 51 – 38)

Addition and subtraction within Second Level (P5, P6 & P7, but earlier or later for some)

  • Add and subtract 2-digit numbers using a variety of strategies
  • Add and subtract multiples of ten and hundred (e.g. 300 + 520)
  • Use a variety of strategies to find a pair of numbers that add to make 100 (e.g. “What goes with 63 to make 100?”)
  • Add and subtract 3-digit numbers using a variety of mental/written strategies e.g. 477+8, 534+40, 624-200 (mental) and 751-36, 621+185 (written)
  • Identify the number partner to go with a decimal tenth to make one (e.g. “What goes with 0.3 to make 1?”)
  • Identify the number partner to go with a decimal hundredth to make one (e.g. “What goes with 0.37 to make 1?”)
  • Add and subtract decimal numbers using a variety of (written) strategies
  • Add and subtract simple fractions e.g. ½ + ¼

Primary 7 – Elections

Primary 7 have been learning about the Scottish Parliament this term. As part of their project they have created political party groups. They are running for election on Monday 20th March in front of the school. Each group has a Party Political Broadcast (PPB) which highlights some of their key areas within their manifestos. Each political party will be asked questions by the voters.

Have a look at the Party Political Broadcasts and take part in our poll to let us know who you think you’d like to see in power.

Good luck Primary 7!
