Smartie Maths

We enjoyed some Smartie Maths today.  I modelled the task to the children.  They had to draw columns on their paper, then sort their smarties into colours.  Then they had to put the smarties into columns like a graph.  We talked about most, more and less.  The children compared the columns.  Then we counted the number of smarties in each column and had a go at writing the numerals.  Finally we counted how many smarties we had altogether.  Some packets had more than others!  And then we got to taste them.
