I used this in a recent observation for my top Year 1 numeracy set. For the first part of the lesson I took the children outside and gave them two hoops. They had to decide how to use the hoops to help them sort themselves into children who had pets and children who did not have pets. We then went inside and worked through the PP with the children joining in. The main activity was to then sort a different range of data at the end such as even numbers and numbers less than 20 etc. I hope you find this useful :) Please use the PP(1) as the first has a mistake on it.
I put this together because there really wasn't much out there for this topic. Coveres basic info about the solar system and the race to get to the moon between the russians and americans. I&'ve added some audio clips to the powerpoint to spice it up a bit. Hope it is useful.
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation.
This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes
