How Many Seeds in a Pumkin?

How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?
 
This week we have read the book How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? and had a go at estimating how many seeds we think there are. We had a lot of mathematical discussion about the easiest ways to count the seeds; in ones, twos, fives or tens? We settled on tens, and the children used tens frames to scoop seeds into.
 
We have then worked on bonds to 10 with Y1 and made part wholes, bonds to 100 with Y2 and made part wholes and found all the fact families number bonds to go with them and YF have been counting to 10, and learning in depth about 1, 2 and 3. 
 
What a messy bun fun maths week we have had!
