Creative Maths

In Room 3 we have been learning different ways to make 5. 

We had so much fun learning how to add numbers together and being a classroom of creative learners we can also show the different ways we made 5. We did this using our hands, colouring in some gorgeous flowers, and today we made some colourful ladybirds! At the bottom of each picture shows what numbers we have added together to make the number 5.


Can you share with us what other  creative ways you might make 5?


  1. Hi Room 3. We like your lovely ladybirds. We like how you can make 5 in different ways. Have you used your fingers to make 5? Now can you make different ways to 10?

  2. Konnichiwa Room 4,

    Thank you for your comment. We can use our fingers to make 5 because we have 5 fingers on one hand. We have started thinking about different ways to make 10.
    Caresse said "5 + 5 = 10"
    Itsu said "1 + 9 = 10"
    Thai Chen said "10 + 0 = 10"
    Can you help us think of more ways?
