19.5.20

Maths: To make direct comparisons between lengths Use and understand long short, longer, shorter, longest, shortest. You will need: About 6 mini sticks or twigs or about 6 lengths of ribbon or 6 straws cut to different lengths. Ask your child to compare the lengths of two sticks by comparing them. They will need to place them on a line drawn on the floor or against the side of a book. Which stick (of the two or three) is the longest? Which stick (of the two or three) is the shortest?  Ask your child to sort the sticks into two groups: “longer than a pencil.” “Shorter than a pencil” (or a crayon if your sticks are fairly short). They will need to measure each stick in turn against the pencil and decide which group it belongs to.  Challenge your child to sort all six sticks in order from shortest to longest.

Maths: To make comparisons and use language related to size, colour and shape. You will need: 10 different leaves (collect in your garden or on your daily walk).

Ask your child to look at all the leaves: what is similar? What is different?  Ask them to sort the leaves into groups by colour, size or texture. Count how many leaves are in each group, saying which has more and which has fewer? What would you need to do to make all the groups be equal? How many more leaves would you need?
