Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

More Than ... Less Than

This week, we have been carrying on our learning of more and less and we have enjoyed exploring these terms using food!

We were given three different items of food on three different plates. Firstly, we identified the quantity on each plate and compared which plate had the most and which had the least.

"We ordered the plates from the greatest to the smallest - 7, 5, 3."
Joseph and Joshua
"I counted each doughnut and there were 7."

With our learning partners, we challenged each other to compare the plates and create sentences using key vocabulary such as ‘7 doughnuts are greater than 3 muffins’ and ‘5 cookies are less than 7 doughnuts’.

"I created a more than sentence by putting a bigger amount first - 5 cookies are more than 3 cupcakes."
"7 doughnuts are more than 3 cupcakes."










We then shared our results with the class and identified all the possible greater than and less than sentences.
