Count up and back to 20. Get your child to count using either claps, jumps or stamps. They can clap, jump or stamp with any numbers up to 20. Play a game so you count how many they have clapped, jumped or stamped and then swap over. How many numbers can they find around the house? Where can they see different numbers around the house?
I would like the children to carry on with subtracting today. Please complete these sums using pictures in their exercise books or on paper. They need to draw the amount and then cross out however many they are taking away. Please see the picture below:

Topic: Pick a challenge from the home learning grid on the class page.
Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.

Ask your child to read the words below using Fred-talk before blending the words.
Now ask them to try spelling the words; Say the word slowly and allow them to decode the word independently to spell it. Keep a record of their score to share with us.
At the bottom of the page I have added some exciting ways to keep the spelling magic alive! It is ok to drop the pencil and try something new.
