Tapestry Challenge

Today we would like you to work on your number and letter formation. You should have all received laminated sheets and whiteboards pens in your home learning packs that will be helpful for this task. If you did not receive a home learning pack please let your child’s class teacher know as soon as possible.

Try to use the same prompts that we use in school. When practising cursive letter formation we remind the children to start every letter on the line. If there is a particular letter that your child is struggling with there are lots of videos on youtube that can help. Search ‘Cursive ____ formation’ adding the sound that your child needs support with. We often use these videos at school so your child should be familiar with them.

The children should remember that when forming numbers we don’t start on the line. When forming numbers we always start at the top. Again, there are lots of support videos on youtube if needed.

Try finding alternative ways to practise number and letter formation to keep it interesting. You might like to use chalk outside, coloured pens on large paper or any of the ideas shown below-

Today we would like you to think about number bonds! Remember number bonds are pairs of numbers that add up to another number. We would like you to focus on number bonds to 5 and then numbers bonds to 10.

Your child might be able to quickly recall these number facts and answers questions such as ‘I’ve got 4 how many more do I need to make 5?’ or ‘I’ve got 3 how many more do I need to make 10?’.

It’s also important that children can represent their number bonds. If given lego bricks in two colours can your child show a given number bond?

If given number cards can your child match them into number bond pairs?

Today we would like to see you work on your subtraction skills! Remember subtraction means taking away.

How will you practise subtraction? Try to stick with numbers below 10 until you become more confident and use resources to support your learning.

If you would like a challenge try writing out number sentences.

Skittles can be used for a fun subtraction game. How many did you start with, how many did you take away (knockdown) and how many are left?

You could use toy ducks in a pond, animals in a field or cars in a car park to tell a subtraction story. Stories often help children to understand new concepts.

Maybe you could use lego or other bricks? How many in your tower? How many will a grown-up take away? How many are left?

Challenge: If a grown-up reads the problem to you can you write out the correct number sentence?

Tapestry Challenge

Today we would like you to think about daily events in your house. Lots of people have found that a daily routine or timetable is helping during the lockdown. If you have not already introduced one you might like to create one together today?

We would like the children to think about sequencing and ordering events. If given key points in the day e.g. breakfast, lunch, brushing teeth, snack time etc. can they put the events in order? Do they understand the concepts of morning and afternoon?

This could be an ideal opportunity to introduce some simple language regarding time. By the end of Reception children need to ‘use everyday language to talk about time’. This does not mean that they need to be able to tell the time independently but it does mean that they need to have a basic understanding.

Well done everyone. You have completed another super week of learning. Keep up the amazing work.

Tapestry Challenge

Today we would like you to think about colour!

You could go on a colour hunt around your house. Can you create a colour chart and find items to match each colour?

To include a maths element you might like to make this a timed game. Could you take turns with your family members to find the most items of a certain colour in a given time? Maybe you could join in counting down with the timer?

It would be great if you could include some writing too (especially if you are in Reception). Maybe you could use coloured pens to write out the names of the colours or write out a list of the items found?

If you would like an added challenge you could consider the different shades within a colour. Are some items lighter or darker than others? Could you sort them from lightest to darkest?

If your grown-ups are feeling particularly brave you might even like to get the paints out and experiment with mixing colours?
