Eric the sheep – a math investigation

This week in maths we learnt about a cheeky, impatient sheep called Eric.
Eric jumped two sheep when the shearer took one to shear.
We found out how many sheep got shorn before Eric.
We used counters and toy sheep to act out the story and get the answer.
We wrote our answers in a table and saw a pattern. The pattern was in three’s.
Then we made a pictograph with little sheep.
I liked how we used the toy sheep. Emily
I liked acting out how Eric jumped over two sheep at a time. Chloe
I liked acting it out on the floor and being a sheep. Dakota
I liked drawing the pictogrpah and acting it out. Jemimah
