'I can count to 20'

Today we are going to continue with our number work and practice counting to 20. Can you count to 20? Can you start on any number and continue counting to 20? E.g. 6, 7, 8... Can you count backwards from 20? If you have a pile of objects, can you count them? Why don't you have a go at getting a handful of marbles, counters, small toys or anything else you have at home and try to count them. Can you write the numbers 1 to 20 on pieces of paper and order them? Here are some additional activities to help you with your counting.  



'I can use exclamation marks'

We have been reading the story of 'Little Red Riding Hood' and last week we had just read up to the point where the wolf got to Granny's house before Little Red Riding Hood. Today we are going to read what happens when they meet. (I have attached a copy of a powerpoint version of the story - if possible, only read up to them meeting and 'What big teeth you have!' and stop before the end of the story for tomorrow). Once you have read this, talk about the exclamation marks (!) at the end and that we are going to write up their conversation in speech bubbles. Have a go at using the 'wolf' and 'Little Red Riding Hood' speech bubbles to write out the conversation. 


'I can create a timeline'

In history we are learning about how houses have changed over time. Have a look at the powerpoint at the way houses have changed and developed. What is the same and what is different? 

Can you create your own timeline?
