What you will need


Today the children are going to learn that a square and a rectangle both have four straight sides and four corners. They are also going to learn that a square is in fact a special type of rectangle. Please watch session 1 on the White Rose Maths Home learning page.   


Complete the activity next to the video (I have also saved the activity as a PDF below). How did you sort your shapes? I would love to see a picture of how you sorted the shapes. 


On your daily walk I wonder if you could build your own shapes using sticks.

As a fun starter, join in with the following song-

Last week I asked you to create flash cards of the phase 2 sounds you are struggling to recognise. Ask an adult to show you these letters and see if you can say them. Repeat this task until you are more confident at saying the sounds. 


I would now like you to watch the following video- . Pause the video and complete the activities that the teacher asks you to do.

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?

Just like the man explained in the video, you could also use your finger prints in paint to add details to your pictures.

Magazines, newspapers and any materials that you have around the house.
