As usual, practice your Gem Maths first. Then you need to practice your numbers between 30 and 40. Your grown-up needs to say a number between 30 and 40 and you need to write the number down in numerals. For an extra challenge you could write it down in words too.
Today we are thinking about 'adding more'. This means adding by counting on and is something you can practice at home.
For example, if we wanted to add together two quantities and we know we how much one is, we don't need to count from the number one when trying to find the total.
If we wanted to count these fingers, we can see that one part is 5 and the other is 2. To add them, we shouldn't need to count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. We should start with the largest number and count on: "I can see 5 there so 6,7. The answer is 7."
Try a few examples on fingers and use other things around your home to help your child practice counting on. Make sure they don't count the number they started on or else they will arrive at an answer one less than they should have.
Once you have done this, there are a couple of more challenging problems to have a go at below.
We love storytelling and looking at lots of different stories, particularly those by Barefoot Books.
Click on the link below and choose one of the books. Listen to the story, practice it and try to learn it off by heart then add some actions. See if your grown up can film it and send it to us, we would love to see your performances.
Can you click back in to the Science section on the previous page and complete the activity linked to materials, the topic we have been working on during the previous term.
We would like you to click on the videos below and watch the phonics lessons 'e_e' 'oa' and 'blending with o' from Letters and Sounds. Activities which you can do to apply the sound are in the video and there are also linked underneath.
After, please watch the videos on the phonics resource and support section which practices all your phonics sounds using the flashcards which we use at school. Have a go at saying the sounds along with Miss Smith. Make sure you are saying the pure sounds accurately.
Don't forget to read your book everyday.
