We have been finding out about nocturnal animals the children have enjoyed sharing their knowledge and finding out new information. I wonder if our parents can sort out the nocturnal and diurnal animals.

 

In maths this week we have been recognising and using Numicon and have been practising writing our numbers. Some of us have even completed some simple additions. keep using the Numicon at home and asking your children to write the numbers.

We are supporting children in need.

Maths

 

In Maths this week we have been learning about time. The children have been using language related to time and beginning to read the time on an analogue clock. Ask your children to spot the o'clock times on the clock at home. Make it more challenging by asking them to read half past times. You can also talk about how long things take e.g. how long does it take to eat our tea? 1 minute or more than 1 minute? Children may also want to tell you about how many seconds are in a minute. The children have loved completing 1 minute challenges.

 

1 minute challenges

How many times can you write your name in 1 minute?

How many times can you jump on the spot in 1 minute?

 

I hope you enjoy completing the maths home work.
