Adding Easter Eggs

Today in our groups, we played a game adding up Easter eggs. Some of us counted the total but some of us spotted pairs of numbers which went together, such as number bonds to 5 or doubles. We had some good thinking going on!

Someone said “There’s 4” . Another child said “There’s 1 and 1 which is 2 and 2 more makes 4”
Some of us spotted that 2 and 3 is 5, and 2 more makes 7! Someone else said “Double 2 is 4 and 3 more makes 7”

Some of us recorded the number sentences.
