Stockbridge Counts – Combining & partitioning & place value

OUR CURRENT FOCUS ACROSS THE SCHOOL IS COMBINING & PARTITIONING AND PLACE VALUE

From Monday 19th February to Thursday 30th March

What will this look like for my child?

Combining & partitioning and place value within Early Level (Nursery and P1, but earlier or later for some)

Make finger patterns:

  • To show numbers 1 to 5 using one hand
  • To show double patterns for 1 to 5 (two hands)
  • To show doubles plus one patterns (two hands e.g. double 3 plus 1)
  • To partition numbers (e.g. “Make 6 on your fingers. Can you make it another way?”)
  • To partition 10 (e.g. 9 fingers up and 1 down shows 9 + 1 = 10

Recognise flashed patterns (domino and random)

  • Explore partitions of numbers through dot patterns

Combining & partitioning and place value within First Level (P2, P3 & P4, but earlier or later for some)

Combining and partitioning

  • Partition numbers up to ten into number bonds (e.g. know that 5 = 1 + 4 and so on)
  • Use number bond knowledge to say what number gets us to/from a decade (e.g. 34 + ? = 40, 54 – ? = 50)

Place value

Split a number containing tens and units

  • In a standard way e.g. (36 is 3 tens and 6 units)
  • In a non-standard way (e.g. 36 is 2 tens and 16 units)

Demonstrate how the value of a digit depends on where it is placed e.g. the 3 in 236 means 3 tens or 30

Split a number into its place value parts e.g. 364 = 300 + 60 + 4 (numbers up to 1000)

Combining & partitioning and place value within Second Level (P5, P6 & P7, but earlier or later for some)

Combining and partitioning

  • Partition 100 (e.g. 23 + ? = 100) to help with percentage calculations
  • Partition 1000

Place value

  • Demonstrate how the value of a digit depends on where it is placed (numbers up to 1 million)
  • Split a number into its place value parts
    • In the range 1 to 1000000
    • For decimals up to 2 decimal places (e.g. 2.5 is 2 and 5 tenths)
  • Split a decimal up in a non-standard way (e.g. 3.2 can be 2 and 12 tenths)

Burns Ceilidh

A massive thank you to the PSA Events team for a wonderfully fun evening with lots of dancing! Thanks also to Ceilidh Kids for keeping us right with the steps. Thanks to everyone that came along and supported the family event.

The Stockbridge Primary Band – Tuesday’s 8.10 – 8.55am

Calling all Primary 4-7 Young Musicians…

We are announcing a new and exciting opportunity to play in a group, learn how to make music and create sounds in a variety of styles – from Film to Pop! All instruments welcome, from brass to strings as well as keyboards and percussion.  If you love music, are enthusiastic, like to be creative and have lots of energy then please get in touch.

This new Stockbridge band will practice before school for 45 minutes. We will learn to play and perform music in all styles. There will be lots of possibilities to compose, arrange and improvise. The band will aim to become the flagship of the school, and perform regularly at school events and in the wider community. We will also look to record our music!

Band practice will take place on a Tuesday 8.10 – 8.55am (Dates this term will be January – 16,23,30 Feb – 6,20,27 March – 6,13,20,27)

If you would like to join please sign up by emailing admin@stockbridge.edin.sch.uk / speaking to the school office and come along TO THE SCHOOL HALL NEXT TUESDAY AT 8.10AM WITH YOUR INSTRUMENT.   

There will be no cost for the first session but we will charge £2.00 per week for all other sessions (a parentpay payment will be set up after the first session to cover staffing costs).  We do not want cost to prohibit attendance so please contact the school office if you have difficulty covering these costs.

Best wishes,

Mr Briggs and Ms Calder-Kelly
