Explore your fruit bowl and look what's in it! How can we sort it? What groups have you got in there? How can you combine these to make some maths problems? For example 3 plums + 6 grapes. Can you write the number sentence? 3 + 6 = 9.

Make caterpillars of different lengths -you can dip your fingers in paint and make your prints close together to look like caterpillars or just draw. How many body parts has he got? Count together and talk about how many there would be if there was one more body part. 

 

Look at adding more, explore adding different amounts. How big is he now? For example, if we used the language of first, then and now. First he had 8 body pieces, then we added 2 more, now he has 10 body pieces. Can you say and write the number sentence 8 + 2 = 10.

 

Take another look at your little creatures. How many body parts would there be if there was one less? Can you make a caterpillar that is 3 less etc. 

 

You could also explore doubling with your caterpillars.

Your job today is to make a pirate ship and a flag.

Your challenge is to make your flag the same on both sides (symmetrical). Fold your paper down the middle -draw a faint pencil line to help you. If you put a square on one side you have to do it on the other!

Grown ups set up a treasure hunt in your indoor or outdoor environment (you can hide any type of object). Provide picture clues (draw the place the object is hiding and an arrow showing where it is) or verbal clues -probably easier! (use positional language to describe where the object is and encourage your child to find it. For example you might say the hat is under the table, the brick is next to the plant pot, the bear is in the bath etc.)

 

When you have completed your treasure hunt, can you describe where the football is on the sheet attached? 

Please encourage your child to describe where the football is using positional language (on top of, under, behind, in front, next to, between, in). 

Positional language (prepositions) refers to the place where something or someone is.

Collect a set objects from around your house to experiment with. Pick a number to aim for, lets say 10. Make these into a numbered list to tick off if you wish. Find something to use as the sea -the bath or sink is a good option! Which one floated? Make these into one group. Which ones sank? Make these into another group. How many in each group? Did any of the object surprise you?

Please begin by reading the book 'The night pirates' or listening to the audio attached below. 

 

An essential piece of kit for a pirate is a telescope! Think about how you are going to design yours so we can go on lots of adventures!

 

The night pirates are as quiet as mice and stealthy as shadows and the rough, tough pirates are caught sleeping. We need to practise sleeping like pirates. How long can you pretend to be asleep without moving? What could you use to time this?

 

Can you add more treasure to Pirate Patch's Chest? (see sheet below).
