Life in all its fullness

I can find one more and one less.

Today we are going to use our knowledge of counting and numbers to 20, to find one more of a number and one less of a number. You might find it helpful to have a 0-20 number line in front of you (why don't you make your own to show your super counting!). Put the counter on the number you want to find one more and one less of. To find one more, you move the counter up the number line one space and to find one less, you move the counter back one space. Below are a range of challenges to try to help you practice finding one more and one less. 


I can write descriptive sentences.

Today we are going to read the final part of 'Little Red Riding Hood' (parents and carers, it might be helpful if you start from the beginning every time you read the story to help your child to remember the key parts of the story). We are going to think about the woodcutter and try to think about how he knew the wolf was inside the house. Maybe he heard the wolf howling? Or saw the point, furry ears? Today we are going to write descriptive sentences about what the woodcutter saw and what he heard. We want lots of describing words for example, 'loud howl' 'sharp teeth' but in full sentences with a capital letter and a full stop. 



For the next few weeks, we will be having a quick recap over our phase 3 sounds. Today we are going to focus on the 'ch' sound. There is a powerpoint below to work through together then an activity for you to try independently.
