Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. The numbers 6 to 9 are composed of 5 and a bit.
  2. Fingers and tens frame representations draw attention to the five and a bit structure.
  3. There are 5 fingers on each hand.
  4. Ten is composed of 5 and 5.

Common misconception

Children may not be able to recognise five fingers on a hand or subitise numbers up to five in familiar arrangements such as dice patterns.

Play games to practise subitising and recognising five e.g. dominoes or dice games and finger games such as bunny ears. Allow regular opportunities for pupils to familiarise themselves with common patterns of numbers.

Keywords

  • Five and a bit - The numbers 6 to 10 can be made with 5 and a bit more.

  • Count - Count means to say the number names in order, the last number tells how many there are in the whole set.
