  3. Hi, I taught this during my placement with year 1 where I used oranges (these were the snacks for the children) in a basket and asked them to count them together whilst on th carpet. I then gave an orange away to our class bear and asked if anyone knew how many we'd have now.
    It was great to hear some responses before we counted them out again as a class.
    I found it very good as an introduction where they could all visualise what had happened!
    Hope that helps!
