We hope you are all fine and have had a good, restful weekend. The children enjoyed their party on Friday. We played Pin the tail on the Donkey, musical chairs and musical statues. A few children showed us their dance moves and we tried to learn the Floss dance. Mrs Cross accepted our invitation and joined us for our party.
This week in English we are going to base our work around the 'Funnybones' story and in Maths, we are revisiting subitising.
Subitising is recognising a number of objects without counting them. We will also be learning to partition numbers 5 and 6.
Enjoy the activities and have a good week.

English- Listen to the story on the link below.
How many skeletons are in this story?
where did they live?
what happened to the dog skeleton?
What did the skeletons like to do to people?
Maths - subitising
Look at the images below. How many dots are on each dice face? Can you instantly guess how many dots there are without counting them?
Listen to the story again. Look at the pictures from the story. How many objects can you name from the pictures in the book? We have learnt the phonemes s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c and k.
Can you find some objects that start with these phonemes?
How many did you find?
Maths - Today we are going to partition a group of 5 objects in different ways. Look at the pictures below and talk about how the counters have been split into 2 groups in different ways. The total is always the same.
We would like you to get 5 objects and practise partitioning them in different ways. You can use things like 5 pencils or 5 coins.
Look at the picture below. Can you write labels for some of the objects from the story?
After partitioning, talk about the different ways you partitioned six objects. When you add the two numbers again the total is always six.
1 + 5 = 6
2 + 4 = 6
3 + 3 = 6
4 + 2 = 6
5 + 1 = 6
6 + 0 = 6
English - order pictures from the story. Then retell the story.
Maths - Count forwards and backwards on the number line below.
Then make your own number line by writing the numbers on separate pieces of paper and make your number line. Ask your child to close their eye and rearrange two numbers. Use the number line to count up to 10 again. Which two numbers are in the wrong place?
Repeat the above again and rearrange two different numbers.
English. Today we would like you to read the phonemes below and then practise writing these. Remember to hold your pencil correctly and form your letters starting from the red point on the letters.
Can you name some things that start with these phonemes?
Look at the pictures below. What is the number? Do you know without counting the objects?
