In school we include counting into our conversations with the children whenever we can. One aspect of learning to count is to be accurate. Of course it is always easier to learn when having fun, and when trying to win! This week’s homework is to play a game, and then tell us who won. We have included a photocopy of a simple board game you could try, or you may have some at home that you prefer. You can write and draw in your homework book or add some photos to Tapestry.

The first 2 sounds that the children have been taught are ‘m’ and ‘s’. The homework this week is to go on a letter hunt looking for these letters. Once you start looking you will find letters everywhere! Fill a page of your homework book with . . . drawings, photos, cuttings from newspapers or magazines, printing.
Remember you are looking for ‘m’ and ‘s’.

Autumn is all around us now and the children are starting to notice the changes in the trees around school. For the homework this week we would like your child to collect some Autumn items to bring into school or they could stick them into their homework book. If you have Tapestry available you could add photos of your child collecting Autumn things there.
Number Hunt Homework
This week in school we have been doing lots of counting of; children, toys, snacks and more. Next week we will be looking at number recognition and having a number hunt around our Early Years building.
For your homework this week we would like you to find out what number your house is. You may like to draw your front door and house number in your homework book, or take a photo of your front door and stick it in your book.
If your child would like to do more you could encourage them to see what other numbers they can spot around the house (clocks, food packets, height chart) or go out and about looking for numbers on other people’s front doors.
For your first homework we would like your child to draw a self-portrait in their homework book. They can use coloured pens or pencils. We would like them to also write their name and age.
If you feel that your child would like to draw other members of the family, and that can include pets, then please encourage them to do this on a separate page.
