Warm up – Gem maths practice.  Then practice counting up and down in 10s from numbers up to and beyond 100.

Position and Direction – Reasoning and Problem Solving

Have a think about what the words forwards, backwards, above and below mean.  Practice saying and holding up your left and right hands.  Now try the reasoning and problem solving questions in the resource section below.  Remember, you are a maths detective looking for clues and evidence.  Watch the video for an explanation of the answers.

Make a Poster

Today you are going to be making a poster.  Watch the clips of the story again to find out information about the magic beans.  Then watch the time-lapse of video of Miss Smith creating a poster of the magi beans.  Now have a go at doing one yourself, including what you can remember from the story.  You are then going to label the poster.  Look at the image in the resources section for more help.

Take a break

Have a chat; listen to some music; watch a programme; read a book; go outside
