Today we are going to continue learning about doubles. Open the powerpoint document below, click 'slideshow' and 'from beginning', then work through the powerpoint to find out about Dobby the Alien and his Doubling Machine!

Remember that doubling is adding the same amount. Doubles of numbers are key addition facts that we need to learn to help us become faster mathematicians. The ones we need to learn in Reception are:

1 + 1 = 2

2 + 2 = 4

3 + 3 = 6

4 + 4 = 8

5 + 5 = 10


Today we would like you to play a game called Double Trouble. The game is explained in the image below. To play the game you will need two sets of number cards 1 - 5, which you can make on pieces of paper, and small objects such as Lego bricks. Have fun!!
