15.5.20

Maths: Digging deeper of our understanding of more, fewer, equal. You will need: Counters or pencils or twigs or straws: in other words, something to count.  Three cards with the words “fewer”, “more” and “equal to” written on them. The back of a cereal packet is perfect for this.  A dice

Ask your child to roll the dice and collect the corresponding number of objects.  Then turn over one of the cards: read the card and ask your child to make a new set of objects according to the instruction. Ask them to justify how they know their new set is more, fewer or equal to their first set of objects.

English: Complete an activity from the English Unit below-Down on the Farm

Guided Reading: Repeat yesterday’s activity with different words-Make some key words flash cards-put them in a box, how many can Mia read in 1 minute picking them out of the box?

Maths: Comparing groups of objects which are identical. Vocabulary: more than, fewer than, equal to, same as. You will need: Bottle tops or pebbles or shells or pinecones or Duplo bricks (a collection of things to count) Two pieces of paper or two place mats to put the objects on.

Ask your children to pick up two sets of objects, put one set on each place mat.  Discuss: How many bottle tops are in this group? How many are in the other group? Which group has more? Which group has fewer? Are the groups equal? How do you know?  Repeat several times. Challenge your child by doing the following activity: Give them 5 bottle tops. Can you show me more? Can you show me fewer? Can you show me an amount equal to his amount? Ask “How do you know” each time.

Ask your child to close their eyes and pick up 5 objects. Adult to do the same.  Discuss: How many red bottle tops have you got? How many green bottle tops have you got? Are your five bottle tops the same as my five bottle tops? What’s different? E.g. I have 2 red and 3 green. You only have green. I have more green than red and you have more red than green.  Repeat several times, picking up 5 each time. Highlight that 5 can be made in different ways including 0 and 5, 1 and 4, 2 and 3
