Blossom Blue

Finding the pairs of numbers that make 4 and 5.

This week in Blossom Blue we have been investigating in maths to find out all the pairs of numbers that add up to 4 and 5.

We used a hoop to throw 4 or 5 bean bags into it. We looked at how many were inside and how many were outside the hoop. Then we wrote these pairs of numbers down. 

Next we used Numicon to find the pairs.

Lastly, we used a Five Frame to make the pairs to 5 using coloured counters.
