Maths

Last week we were learning all about finding one more...the number gets bigger - we add one more! +1

 

Today we are learning about finding one less...the number gets smaller - we take away 1. -1

One less than 4 is 3...

There 4 different activities that you can do. Please don't feel like you have to complete them all. smiley

1.)

Take a look at the picture below - 

can you count forwards and then backwards?

Can you sing this song? Song: 5 in the bed

There were 5 in a bed and the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over.’ So they all rolled over and one fell out.
There were 4 in a bed and the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over.’ So they all rolled over and one fell out.

There were 3 in a bed and the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over.’ So they all rolled over and one fell out.
There were 2 in a bed and the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over.’ So they all rolled over and one fell out.

There was 1 in a bed and the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over.’ So they all rolled over and one fell out.
There were none in the bed.
5,4,3,2,1...none!

 

There's a video below to help...

There were 5 in the bed...

2.)

Take a look at the picture below. Can you practise telling the first, then, now story? We did this when we were were learning about one more. It is slightly different now we are finding one less. Take a look at the first, then, now sentence below to help.

First there were..?..children, then..?..left/went away, now there are...?..children.

 

3.) Focus activity - Look at the 2 pictures below...

Can you tell the first, then, now stories using objects and a five frame if you're able to (resource below).

If you haven't got cubes (like in the picture), you could use other toys, objects, fruit, sweets etc.

4. Focus activity - Can you draw the 'now' picture. Can you also show one less than 5 on the five frame? (word document below)

4. Focus activity sheet - One less - continue a first, then, now story

Phonics

Today we are continuing to look at the 'ng' sound - we look at digraphs (2 letters that make 1 sound) over two days in school

In phonics, we do the following things:

1. Sing the alphabet song (the video below is slightly different to the one we sing at school, but the children know it).

2. Practise all of the sounds that we have learned so far.

3. Practise reading words with the previous sound in.

4. Watch a video of our new sound.

5. Practise reading words with our new sound in. We segment the sounds and blend them together to say/read the word, e.g. the word cat - segment ---> c-a-t - blend ---> cat!

6. Practise writing the new sound (pre-cursive letter formation).

7. Practise writing words with the new sound in.
