This week we will looking at the concept of one more and continue to compare and work with numbers 1 to 5 and 1 to 10.



Every Thursday, homework books will be sent home for the children to draw a picture and mark-make or write about what they did on the weekend.  Adults can scribe under their work what the child has drawn/ mark-maked or written.  The homework books will be collected on Tuesday so that the children can show Mrs van Laar their weekend news.  Sometimes I will set specific tasks/activities for the children to do for homework.


Thursday 15th October Homework Activity

Due: 20th October

Please help your child to draw a map of their bedroom from a bird's eye view.  You can encourage and help your child label their map by asking them to name the things they have drawn and they can mark-make and an adult can scribe the labels.
