Dear Parents and Children,
Well done for working really hard this week. You really are doing an excellent job. We have got a new activity for home learning to try today. It is called 'Ready, Steady, Talk' and the activities aim to support and develop children's communication and language skills. We will, of course, continue with learning our phonics and numbers.
Maths Game to Play
Prepare some sticky notes (pieces of paper stuck to the table will be fine) with various numbers written on them and place them in front of your child. Give your child a swatter (you could use a kitchen roll tube / piece of card etc for this).
The goal of this simple yet fun game is to identify numbers. As you call out a number, encourage your child to find the sticky note and swat it. How quickly can they swat the number? If your child is unsure on their numbers, try by starting with numbers 1,2,3 and then adding 4,5 etc as they become more confident. If you wanted to, instead of the adult saying the number to swat, you could use a dice to roll the number. This would provide an extra degree of challenge.
