Develop fluency with the target boards. Use the target boards to:

- recall and remember useful number facts;
- use number facts to calculate mentally;
- explain thinking and methods of calculating.
- use mathematical language correctly.

Print Target Board 1 and a set of dog cards.

Match the dog cards to your target board.

Find two groups of dogs that make 5 altogether.

*How do you know you are correct? How did you work it out? Explain your thinking. Can you find a different way of making 5?*

Use the cards to record your pairs.

*What do you think? Will Calculating Cat be able to find more pairs of cards that total 5?*

Write a number sentence for each of your pairs.

*Can you put your pairs of cards in order? What patterns can you see?*

Look at the target board again. Can you make some other totals? Can you use more than 2 groups of dogs to make some totals?
