Week 4 24.1


Year 1 - One more/One less

Begin by practising verbally one more/one less with numbers 0-20. Then discuss how the addition and subtraction signs can be used for one more and one less. " We can write one more then 15 as 15 +1 or we can write one less then 9 as 9-1."

Record some examples in your book. Then play Robot game.


Year R - Numbers

Begin by singing '1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive.'

Share number cards 1-10 (or 1-20 depending on ability). Read them together. Take a pan and a wooden spoon and tell your child that you are going to bang the pan a number of times. They must listen and then find the corresponding number. Repeat. To challenge further, they could have a go at writing the number down - display the numbers for them to copy where needed.

Make a Number book 0 - 10 - Each page has the number written in large writing with that number of objects drawn around it. You could even photograph objects that your child has put together and print this for the book. Be as creative as you like and continue tomorrow as well as today. Stick in the home learning book for us to see and share with the class.


Year 1 - Comparing objects

Watch this Comparing objects video and then complete Activity sheet or take a trip around your house and compare different objects. How many forks are in your drawer, compared to spoons? Which is greater then/less than? "The spoons are greater then the forks." Or use one of these Practical activities.


Year R

Play Yeti counting game

Continue Number book from yesterday.


Year R & Year 1

In school last week we made dinosaur fossils out of salt dough.  Have a go at doing this at home.  Focus on how to read weighing scales and a measuring jug carefully and talk a lot about what you are doing and how the dough feels.

What you need:

50g table salt

100g plain flour

50ml warm water

What you do:

1. Use a weighing scale to measure out the salt and flour.

2. Add these into a bowl and mix well.

3. Slowly add the warm water to the mix.

4. Keep kneading the dough as you add the water.  If it is too sticky add more flour.

5. When you have a good dough, roll it flat.

6.  Use a dinosaur toy to add foot prints, or make a fossil using your imagination!

7. Bake in an oven at 100 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.

8.  Allow to cool on wire rack 

9. Paint if you would like to.



Year 1

Watch and complete the work sheet called 'Compare Statements 1'.


Year R

Watch the video 'How many are hiding?'   Then have a go at this activity: Gather together a collection of up to 5 objects. Hide some of them in a bag or box, leaving the rest of your objects on the floor where you can see them. How many objects can you see? How many of your objects must be hidden in the bag?



Year 1

Watch the video and complete the work sheet called 'Compare Statements 2'.


Year R

Watch the video

Have a go at this activity: Collect a set of objects and count how many you have altogether. Give a friend some of the objects and hide the rest in a bucket or box. Can your friend work out how many objects you have hidden? Change the number of objects and the number hidden each time. Then take it in turns to work out how many are hidden.
