Unit A – Counting Steps

This maths scheme of work for Key Stage One gets the children to use concrete equipment and diagrams to record how to count in steps of two, five and ten to calculate the sums of different numbers of objects. The class can explain how to find equal groups of sets of twos, fives and tens to illustrate multiplication calculations.

Use concrete equipment and diagrams to record how to count in steps of two, five and ten to calculate the sums of different numbers of objects

## Lesson One : Counting Towers

Use concrete equipment and number square diagrams to practise counting in different steps of ten

## Lesson Two : Fruit Boxes

Practise counting in steps of five and ten to calculate numbers of fruit packed in boxes

## Lesson Three : Flower Pots

Practise counting in different sets of twos and tens to calculate sums of numbers of flowers growing in pots

## Lesson Four : Garden Groups

Select and sort different numbers of garden materials and objects into equal groups of two and ten

## Lesson Five : Tree Leaves

Identify and record number of leaves that can be seen on tree branches using different equal groups
