The Hulk in Reception

This week Reception B have been learning about subtracting one. First they had to create 10 playdough balls. This required manual dexterity to manipulate the playdough along with accurate counting…which is tricky when the playdough balls like to roll around! Then they all channelled their inner superhero and became ‘The Hulk’. The children had to ‘Hulk smash’ a playdough ball to subtract one number each time and then check their answer. They were fabulous at finding ‘ The Hulk’ within them, whilst using a tangible manner to understand the concept of subtracting one. Well done Reception B!
