Homework (W/C 22nd June)

If you are in Miss Holland's class, you can focus on the homework set from this class. If you want some extra challenge to fill your time, please feel free to use any or all resources listed below.

This week's homework is based around the e-book "Little Red Riding Hood" (attached in the documents section below). Read the story with your adult (adult reading) and discuss the character's speech (you can act out the scene with Little Red Riding Hood and the wold as Granny in the bed). Enjoy the story!

The objective for this week's maths homework is to practise 1 more and one less with number. You can do activities through the week involving counting toys, food (such as apples or berries) and even natural resources (such as sticks and stones). The activity involves the adult choosing the number line with numbers their child is familiar with (0-10 or 0-20), which are both in the document section below. If you do not have a printer, these can easily be written on some paper. Choose your objects (toys, food etc.) making sure they are numbers below 10 or 20 (dependent on the number line) and encourage your child to count them out. Take note of whether they are saying one number for each object they touch or move. Next the child should find the number on the number line (maybe they could put a small counter or token on it). Add one more to the pile and say "We had 11, if we add one more, how many do we have now?" (with 11 as an example). Allow them to count and then move their token to the new total. Encourage the child to say "One more than 11 is 12." Do the same with one less.

Chilli Challenge: Can you write the number sentences for these one more and one less number problems? e.g. 11 + 1 = 12

Top Tip - If you do this challenge with food it makes the 'one less' part more fun!

After reading the story of Little Red Riding Hood, can you write a sentence about what she looks like? E.g. She has a bright red hood. She looks happy.

Remember to use capital letters, full stops and snuggle your letters within each word so we know they are together. 

Chilli Challenge: Can you describe the wolf also?

Top Tip - After each word you write, read your sentence back so you know which is the next word to work on!
