You are doing really well with the home learning. Keep up the fantastic effort. I have been really impressed with the photographs that you are sending to me. Well done to all of you.
Here are some activities that you may wish to try today. Remember to have a little go at writing your name too. You have been working really hard this week, so have a good rest at the weekend. Next week we will be looking at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
For maths today you will need some small items to count and something to count them into. In the photograph they have used pompoms and paper cake cases, but you could use mugs/cups and something small to count in to them. Using pieces of fruit or sweets would work, but even pieces of paper rolled up into balls would be fine. Label the cups with numbers and then count that number of items into the cup. Depending on how confident you feel your child is will determine which number you decide to go up to. Some children may be confident working with numbers up to 10, for others up to 3 is more suitable. Remember it is about accuracy of counting a number of items, rather than the number that the child can rote count to.
In the photograph, there are some grabbers to use to pick up the pompoms. You may not have these to hand, but if you do, the benefit of using them is that they help develop muscles in the hand for writing meaning that this activity helps with both maths and writing. Have fun with the activity.
