Week 4 - 27/04/20

Maths activities for the week:

This week we are looking at addition within 10. The children should use real objects to see that the quantity of a group has changed by adding more. At first, the children may need to re-count all of the items to see how many the have altogether, e.g. 1,2,3...4,5,6 but when they are ready encourage them to count on, e.g. 4...5,6,7. 

 

Activity 1: Find 5 items of food and write yourself a shopping list, count to make sure you have 5. Then add in 1 or 2 more items, see if your child knows how many there are by counting on. You could always write  a number sentence too e.g. 5 + 1 = 6

 

Activity 2: Have a go at some of these maths games:

This week is Design and Technology week so I would love for you to get your creative juices flowing. Have a go at one of these or come up with your own ideas:

  • Junk modelling - create me a castle, rocket ship or something else entirely.
  • Cooking - design and make a cake or dinner. Alternatively design a meal for an alien visiting earth.  
  • Building - Create a vehicle with lego, blocks, pasta, whatever you can find. 

Have fun my lovelies!! 

Science activities:

This week I would like you to have a go at some science exploration and investigation. 

 

We are going to be looking at things that float or sink.

 

Have a go with a selection of different objects, you could use natural materials that you may find outside or household objects. 

 

Challenge: Make a prediction before you test the objects, e.g. I think that the stick will float but the spoon will sink.
