## Groups of ten

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

Today we will be looking at grouping objects into groups of ten. We will then explore what we call the total number of objects in different numbers of groups.

When we have grouped numbers in to tens, the first number tells us how many groups of ten we have. As we have grouped everything into a group of ten, there are no ones left over. This is represented by the second number as a zero.

I always think this zero looks like a tea bag and this is helpful when I read 70 as seven-tea, 40 as four-tea, 80 as eight-tea. It doesn't always work as 20 isn't two-tea but can be a useful way to understand firstly how to read the number and to spot how many groups of ten there are.

We are going to need to make our own resources to help us count in groups of ten. Ask an adult to carefully take the middle pages out of your maths book. Using a ruler, draw ten small ten frames nicely spaced out as I have done below and then carefully cut these out.

Roll a dice or ask an adult to choose a 1 digit number and count out that number of groups of ten. Working from zero, count up the number of groups of ten you have and call out what number you have e.g. zero, one ten, two tens, three tens, four tens and five tens are 50!

Can you name each number correctly?

Take a picture of you playing this game and send it to me in the usual way.

Draw yourself a number line counting in tens from zero to 100. Use my tea bag rule to help you write and read them! Once you have done, compare it to my number line below. How are they the same? How are they different?

Either right down or get an adult to message me your observations.

## Writing instructions: Part 2

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

You will need your story map or boxed up plan from last week.

We will be aiming to finish off the instructions for "How to catch a fire giant."

You should have completed your introduction and equipment sections. We will now be moving on to the steps needed to capture the giants.

• We will number the instructions down the side of your book so that it is easy to follow which instruction comes next.
• Keep your instructions clear and precise.
• Remember that instructions must include bossy verbs to tell the reader what to do.
• If you want to be adventurous, you could change some words or add in extra steps to make these instructions your own.
• Use the check box below to help you include everything that you will need. Fix any marvellous mistakes as you see them.

Send me a picture of your instructions once you have completed them.

## The island of you!

Imagine an island just for you. It would be full of all of your favourite things to see, eat and do.

My island would have an enormous bouncy castle in the middle, with a nice hot beach and beautiful palm trees. There would be chocolate bars growing on trees and waterfalls of apple juice. I would have all my family and friends there, with a disco for silly dancing and a huge library of books that smell of jellybeans!

Talk about what you would have on your island of you with a grown up.

Create your own island of you in any way you wish to express yourself. You could:

• Draw or paint it
• Build it with with recycled materials or Lego
• Create it in Minecraft
• or any other way you choose to express your ideas.

Send me a photo of your creation.
