Hi everyone, I hope you are well. Here are a few activities you can do with your child this week.
Go on a number hunt with your child, looking for the numbers one to ten around you.
• You could look in books and magazines, on door numbers, number plates, clocks, price labels, remote controls, phones, calendars or greetings cards.
• Encourage your child to talk about the numbers they see and record their findings by attempting to write the number, drawing pictures or taking photos of the numbers they find.
Which number did you find the most? Which number did you find the least?
Can you complete the puzzle below? Cut out the pieces and match the objects to the number.
Can you count the objects beyond 10 and match to the number?
Another activity you can do is looking at rhyming words.
Sing some nursery rhymes and identify the rhyming words.
Can you think of 5 words which rhyme with cat? Ask an adult to write the rhyming words in your work book for you to copy. Remember to practise those tricky letters!
If you have a printer have a go at doing this rhyming activity:
Draw a line to join the rhyming words together.
Here is a story for your child to listen too. Talk about what happened in the story and who the characters are. As our topic is fairy tales here is the story of 'Jack and the beanstalk'.
