Operation Maths Jr Infs to 2nd classes:

  • Junior Infants will be reinforcing their understanding of the numbers 0-5 via the topic of money
  • Senior Infants will continue to consolidate their understanding of the numbers to 10, via combining and partitioning activities (including the use of the Operation Maths ten frames), solving problems using the number line and representing and interpreting data in a block graph. The children will be exploring patterns to discover different arrays of the same number, patterns with colour and numbers and odd and even numbers. They are also learning to read time in one-hour intervals.
  • First Classes will be exploring Weight , re-visiting Patterns as well as exploring 3-D objects and, in particular, will be connecting their understanding of 3-D objects to their understanding of 2-D shapes.
  • Second Classes will be extending their ability to read, write and order numerals to 199, whereby they will also be exploring their understanding of place value. They will also be introduced to Area for the first time. Towards the end of the month, as part of spatial awareness, they will revisit the half turns and quarter turns that they originally met as part of Lines and Angles
