Nursery and Reception Home Learning – Wednesday 13th May
Tuesday 12th May | No comments yet
Today’s challenge is all about guessing and estimating. We would like you to start with a small number of items and estimate how many are in the group. You may use your knowledge of number bonds to help you e.g. ‘I can see there are 2 here and 3 there and I know that 2+3=5.’
To extend this challenge try using higher numbers. Try to use language or more or less than e.g. Are there more or less than 10 oranges in the bowl?
You might also like to think about capacity. Can you estimate how many bricks will fit in this box? If other members of your family also guess you can figure out who was closest.
Lots of opportunities for maths-based discussions today! We can’t wait to see what you get up to!
Songs of the Day
Joke of the Day
Story of the Day
Each day we will be having a ‘Story of the day’. Some stories may have repeated refrains to join in with and some may be rhyming stories. Please talk with your child about the story. Some suggestions for questions:
Who are the main characters?
Where is the story set?
Is this a rhyming story?
What do you think will happen at the end of the story?
Did you enjoy the story and why?
