Welcome back my plucky Platypuses.
Time to get stuck into another busy day of home learning. Don’t forget to complete your daily tasks outlined below…
This week we will be focusing on writing instructions. When we write instructions we need to tell people what to do. You might say that we need to be a little bit bossy. To tell people what to do we need to use command sentences.
Start by watching this video on writing command sentences and doing the activity by following the link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/z8strwx
Now try writing your own set of instructions in your blue books using command sentences. It could be for washing your hands (very important at the moment) , brushing your teeth, making your favourite sandwich or anything else you can think of. Don’t forget to leave a comment and share some of your instructions too…
If you want more resources to support instruction writing then set up a free twinkle account at https://www.twinkl.co.uk and search instruction writing for lots of presentations and worksheets.
This week we will be focusing on the numbers between 10 and 20.
How many apples are there? Try counting them in ones….
Now search around the house – can you find this same amount of something else it doesn’tt matter what – pencils, books, sweets (but don’t eat them yet!)
Now look at the apples. Can you see one group of ten apples and then three more single apples. Try arranging the objects you found into a group of ten and 3 ones.
Now look how many balloons there are…
There are fifteen balloons – 1 group of ten and 5 ones. Look how we write fifteen below…
- How many groups of ten pencils?
- How many single pencils?
- How many pencils are there altogether?
Continue to explore making amounts between 10 and 20. Try using objects you can find at home or drawing in your books. Here are some ideas…
Take a look at these animals below.
Think of as many similarities and differences between them as you can.
- What they do?
- Where they might be found?
Now leave a comment with which one you think is the odd one out and why?
Don’t worry there is no one right answer – as long as you can give a reason for your ideas!
