What you will need


Do you remember we were learning about tens and ones on Friday? We are going to be doing some more work about this today.

First let’s get our bodies and brains awake by joining in with this song counting back from 20


Now you are warmed up watch the video about tens and ones. Remember to pause it when it tells you too. You can print out the question sheet in the resources or just look at the questions and write your answers on a piece of paper.


It might help to have a number line/ track to twenty.

You can print one out from the resources below or get an adult to write out the numbers to 20.

We are going to practise writing our “robot arm” letters today. They are the letters r, n, m, h, b, p and k.

Remember to start at the top. Look at the video for each letter and then practise writing the letter in the air and on a piece of paper ( lined if possible)

When you are ready have a go a writing these words.

Repeat each word across the line. Can you keep the letters the right size? Remember take your time and concentrate.







Remember to make sure the b, h, and k are tall and that the letter p’s stick part goes beneath the line.

Topic - Science

Last week we thought about how we knew it was winter and what you need to wear when you go out into the cold. Nature gives us lots of signs of each season and today you are going to put on your warm clothes and go outside to look for signs of winter.

1. Have a look at the Winter Scavenger Hunt. You may like to take this outside with you, it is up to you.

What can you see that tells you it is winter? You may like to take a camera to take some photos, but that is up to your grown up.

What can you hear? What can you feel?

2. When you get back inside you can draw pictures of what you found outside that shows you it’s winter.

3. Can you write some sentences to describe 3 things that you found?

All the signs of winter you found are called ‘evidence’. This is something scientists collect when they are investigating and exploring. Today you have been a Scientist too J.

The winter Scavenger Hunt - found in the resources section below.
