Counting practise:


Count to 20 and back.

Ask your grown up to ask you some 1 more and 1 less questions e.g. What is 1 more than 9? What is 1 less than 6? If you are confident with numbers to ten, then do numbers to 20.

Use the 100 square we gave you in your home pack to count in tens to 100.

  10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100


Can you count in twos?

Number bonds to 10 - part-whole model:


Continue exploring number bonds to ten. Try and find the different pairs to make 5 and 10.

There are lots of ways of doing this. We have uploaded a worksheet and a powerpoint to help you.

If you are exploring number bonds to 5 then you could sing 5 Little speckled frogs (Mrs Christie sings it in the rhymes section) of the Reception page. Go outside and make a pond and log - use some stones or other natural objects to pretend they are frogs.  You could also sing 5 Little Ducks went swimming one day.

If you are finding ways to make 10 then you could sing 10 green bottles. Have you got some empty plastic bottles you could use to sing the song. You could also use them outside as skittles. How many can you knock down and how many are left standing?

Make 2 fields and collect 10 farm animals. How many ways can you find to arrange your animals in the 2 fields?

Have a bucket and 5 or 10 items. Throw some items. How many have landed inside the bucket and how many have landed outside? Can you record your scores? You could write them with chalk. 


Brenda's Boring Egg


Read the story with a grown up.  Think about how Brenda felt when the other ducks were being mean to her. How did she feel at the end of the story? How did you feel when you read the story?


Could you draw and design an egg in your home book. Can you write two sentences about it. You could describe the egg or perhaps describe what could be in the egg. Use your imaginations - anything could be inside the egg! Or, instead of drawing the egg you could paint or do a collage of an egg. I would love to see your creations on Tapestry. 

If you prefer then you could make a salt dough egg and describe that instead. (See the link on how to make salt dough eggs.)
