Count the cars forward and backwards.
Thursday 4th March 2021
If the children go on a walk or even look out of the window can they complete a traffic count? How many red cars, blue cars, silver cars and black cars do they see? Can they draw that many cars and write the value e.g 4 black cars? It's would be lovely to hear how many cars you spotted!!!
Wednesday 3rd March
Try this number ordering game below!

Continuing with counting, see how many toys you have! You could sort them into sets then count them. Which toy do you have more of? Which toys do you have the same number?

If you want to extend your child’s learning you could try using non-standard units to measure with eg, lego bricks - how many lego bricks is the same as the pencil?
Thursday 25th February
Watch the clip below. Can you use the words long, short, longest, shortest? Once you can decide which is longest out of 2 objects, can you order 3 objects by length? Below you will see some example. Please send us a picture of your long and short objects.
Wednesday 23rd February
Now that you are fantastic at big and little, let's find out about long and short. Watch Kit and Pup to find out more.
Tuesday 23rd February
Using the words big and small can you find items around your house that are different sizes? Eg, a big spoon and a little spoon, a big teddy and a little teddy. You could sort them into big and little sets.
Monday 22nd February
In maths we will continue to look at measures. This week we will focus on length.
Start today by watching Kit and Pup talk about big and small.

Thursday 4th February
Use your coat hanger weighing scales to find out which is heaviest and lightest out of a set of 3 objects. Can you put them in order? You could draw a picture or take a photo.
Wednesday 3rd February
So, now you have had chance to feel heavy and light objects, let's try making our own balance scales. You could start with finding the heaviest and lightest then make it a bit trickier by finding things that balance!
Tuesday 2nd February
Do you know what heavy and light feels like? Find some objects around your house and see if you can be a weighing scale and find out which is heavy and which is light. I wonder what the lightest thing you can find is? Email me to let me know!
Monday 1st February
Have you noticed it's a new month?
This week we are going to be thinking about weight. You will need to use words like heavy, light, heavier, lighter, heaviest and lightest.
Watch Kit and Pup to find out the difference.

This week you have been learning different words to describe position. Let's finish the week with a game of Simon Says.
You could say:
Simon says put teddy behind the sofa.
Simon says sit under the table.
Thursday 28th January
We are still thinking about positional words. Listen to the story of Rosie's Walk. Can you spot the position words that are used? Once you have heard the story see if you can take your teddy for a walk using position words. You could even draw a map to show me where your teddy went!
Use the story Where’s Spot? - listen to the different places Spot could be.
Stop the video to say where mum is looking i.e. behind, inside, under etc.
Tuesday 26th January
Can you remember some of the position words you heard yesterday? Watch the two episodes of Kit and Pup below to find out about over/under and inside/outside.
Pause in different places for your child to say where the monkey is hiding.

Friday 8th January 2021
You could write numerals 0-5 on separate pieces of paper. Then ask your child to do some careful counting. Can they count 3 cars and match this to the numeral? Can they count 5 dinosaurs and match this to the numeral? Hope you have fun! I would love to see a photo of how they get on!
