This week's written activities for Maths will be based on the topic: Number
The children will practise a range of number skills:


Worms: Using a ball of play dough, ask your child to make a few worms. Ask your child to describe their worms. Discuss what is different about each worm they made and encourage using the vocabulary 'long, short, longer, shorter'. Now ask your child to make a worm that is the shortest and a worm that is the longest. Observe and discuss the worms.

Wednesday:
1. Compare Two Objects of Different Length: Find two pencils / pens. What do you notice about these pencils? How could we describe these pencils? How are these pencils the same? How are these different? Ensure to use the vocabulary! 2. Compare objects again with focus on the comparative language. Find something around the house to use. e.g. a straw/ ribbon. Find some things longer than this straw. Find some things shorter than this straw. How will we check if we are correct? Whose ribbon is wider? mine or yours? Whose ribbon is narrower? How can you be sure? 
Teddy Bears: See any teddy bears / soft toys that you may have around the house. Put all the teddies on the table. Ask the children to sort them into 3 groups of height. I.e. Put taller teddies in one group, shorter teddies in another and teddies of the same height in the third group. After heights have been compared ask the children to suggest other ways that the teddies could be compared.
For example: bigger or smaller feet, longer or shorter legs. In groups of three, pupils put their teddies in order. Ask the children why they ordering their teddies in such a way.
