Please look at the 'Activity Ideas' and 'Website links' tabs for some additional things to do with your children, this week.

Phonics resources are attached below.

Here is a Maths challenge that we would like you to complete by Friday 22nd May and put up on Tapestry for us to see.

Your Week 5 challenge: a maths game. This game is called the Adding More game.

You will need a dice and some building blocks/lego bricks/jenga blocks  (you may also want a pen and paper to record your working out)

Roll the dice to determine how many blocks high to build your tower eg. 4

Roll the dice again to determine how many more blocks to add to your tower eg. 2 How many blocks high will this make your tower now? 

Can you write this as a number sentence 4 + 2 = 6

Can you keep going? Roll the dice again eg. 3 and add this number of blocks to your tower. Count them all up, how many do you have now? Eg. 6 + 3 = 9

You could play this game with another person and have a race to see who can build the tallest tower.

For an extra challenge you could roll two dice at the same time so that you are working with bigger numbers.
