Week Beginning 14.12.20


Remind your child about the greater than or less than crocodile symbols from last week ( < > ) the crocodile's mouth always points towards the greatest number. The crocodile is greedy and wants the most. 


Give your child the number statement below to compare. 


3 + 4        8 


Ask them to work out the addition side and then add a greater than or less than sign to compare the number statement. 


e.g. 3 + 4   <   8  


Ask your child the questions
How can we work out the total of each side? 
Which side gives the greatest answer? 
Which side gives the smallest answer?


Choose either the 1 star or the 2 star activity depending on your child's confidence. For the 2 star questions, your child will need to work out a possible number to go in each gap to make the number sentence make sense.
