# Year 1: week 4 (number knowledge and probability)

This week we focus on learning about halves and quarters and we investigate some beginning probability concepts.

### Day 1

Number knowledge

Probability activity

### Day 2

Number knowledge

• Today we use a similar activity to day one except that we use strips of paper.
• Make strips of paper of various lengths and then cut each one into 2 equal parts (1/2) and then 4 equal parts (1/4).
• Check that they are “equal” parts.

Probability activity

### Day 3

Number knowledge

• Go to the activity Make a whole and follow the instructions.

Probability activity

• Talk to a family member about what you see as you walk around your neighbourhood.
• Draw pictures of three things:
• Something that you always see
• Something that you sometimes see
• Something that you never see
• Write the words always, sometimes, never under the pictures.

### Day 4

Number knowledge

Probability activity

• Talk to a family member about the things they see around your home.
• Draw (or find online) pictures of three things:
• something that you always see
• something that you sometimes see (eg flowers in a vase, or bananas in a fruit bowl, a fly on the window).
• something that you never see
• Write the words always, sometimes, never under the pictures.

### Day 5

Number knowledge
