Homework Friday 4th April
This week in maths we have been working on subtraction. The children have been using numicon to take away amounts from 0-5.
For your homework this week your child could choose an amount of objects within their counting range and then try taking 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 away from those objects to find out how many are left.
Use this number sentence to verbalise what you have done “…. take away ….. equals/ leaves…..”
Challenge: could you try taking zero away or all of your objects- how many do you have left? Can you say this as a number sentence?

What did you try?

Did you like it- Why? Why not?
Would you buy it again?

In maths this term we are exploring time. In reception this can be talking about different times of the day using everyday language; for example “its light in the morning and I have my breakfast, its dark at night time and I have a bath then go to sleep.” Talking about time could also mean different times in children’s lives, for example “When I was a baby I was 1, I couldn’t walk then. I learnt to swim with arm bands when I was 4.”
For your homework this week we would like you to send us in some photos for the children to write about in school. We would like 3 photos of your child at different ages for us to make a timeline with. You may also like to talk about and send in some pictures of what your child does at different times of the day to help with their learning in school.
Homework 9th March 2018
Now that the snow has gone and we are into March spring has begun! The children have been learning about signs of spring in school and looking for these in our outside area and on the school field. We found; new leaves, buds on branches, daffodils, blossom and birds now the weather is getting a little warmer.
For your homework this week we would like you to go for a walk and see what signs of spring you can find. You may like to make your own tick list of items you’re looking for before you go, or draw pictures of what you find along the way, or even take photos of your spring scavenger hunt.
Please complete your homework either in your homework book or via tapestry.
World book day is approaching, for your homework this week we would like you to share a book with your child, this might be a family favourite story, a new or recommended book, a recipe book or a magazine . Your challenge is to find a special, unusual or different place to get “caught reading.”
Please send in a photo of your child “caught reading” and let us know where and what they are reading. You can submit this homework via tapestry or your child’s homework book by the 28th February 2018.
