What you will need


To warm up your maths brains I would like you to either use the ten's frame template below or draw a ten's frame outside on concrete with chalk (weather dependent). I would like you to count 6, 7, and 8 items onto the 10 frames. Did you have to count out each object or could you put the correct amount on the ten's frame without counting?


Your activity for today-  I would like you to use the ladybird template sheet below and explore all the different ways you can make 8. You could cut out the spots on the sheet or use objects from around the house. You could also draw your own ladybird if you don't have a printer. For an extra challenge you could write the corresponding addition sum. For example 4 + 4 = 8. 

Ten's frame


Objects from around the house 




Yesterday you listened and joined in with the story 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. Today you are going to map and speak the story. Watch the following video of Miss Doherty- I would like you to complete the activities that she asks you to do in the video. 

Paper and pen


Read a book on Bug Club, Oxford Owl or a book that you have at home. Can you tell an adult what happened in the story? 

Oxford owl link to free ebooks-




Bug Club- Please message me if you are having trouble logging in. 

Topic - 


3 screen-free activities for you to choose from. Some can be done inside, and some can be done outside, dependant on the weather. This week's 3 activities are:


1. Nature Art

This activity will involve going outside and collecting pieces of nature to make some art with. There is a lovely nature reserve in Maylandsea which you could explore to collect the pieces for your artwork, equally, you could use your garden. Have a look at the pictures below. They are all minibeasts, which have been created from natural materials! What can you find and what minibeast can you create? Send your creation through to your teacher on Dojo if you would like to.



2. Send a letter, send a smile. We all love to get letters and cards through the post. Today, you can be the person to make someone smile by sending a letter. You could draw a picture, make a card, write a letter, write a poem, or come up with your own idea and send it to someone you’ve not been able to see for a while, a friend or family member. If you choose somebody local to you, you could go with a parent to deliver your letter. If not, kindly ask your parents for a stamp and see if you can post your letter together. You never know, you may well receive your own letter through your door today or in the next few days.


3. Make a den

Again, this depends on the weather, but I think you would probably be better building a den inside. You could create a list of things you need before building. Some materials you may want to find are chairs, pegs, blankets, cushions. Have a look at the picture below for some inspiration and then get building! Remember to check with an adult they are happy with the materials you use and where you build your den before you begin.

Once its built, why not find a soft toy, a book, or a snack and enjoy your time inside your cosy nest.
