Happy Friday Reception!
Fun Fact Friday: Jupiter’s moon Io has many volcanoes which makes it look like a pepperoni pizza!
Can you find out a fun fact today? We would love to read them in the comments or you can email them to your teacher.
I have recorded a short video for you. This task allows you to use your skills of segmenting. You can either do this verbally or grab a piece of paper and join in. There are twenty words in this video so you can do some now and some later.
This week you have been looking at doubling. Today we are going to apply that knowledge to a more abstract way of presenting it.
Make a tens frame at home similar to the one below. You can use this to easily see the double of a number. If I want to find out what double three is, I can place three objects or dots on the first row and three on the bottom. I can then count the total by counting on. See the example below.
I have used the online version that can be found here:
Other: National Trust 50 things
National trust have created a list of 50 things to do before you are 11 3/4 years. Although most of these are to get children active outside, some of them can be completed a lot closer to home. My favourites that can be achieved are:
No.3 – camp outdoors
No.9 – eat a picnic in the wild
No.18 – create some wild art
No.31 – make friends with a bug
No.33 – cloud watching
No.36 – make a home for wildlife
No.41 – help a plant grow
No.48 – watch a bird
Here is the link to the full list:
