Maths – Number of the Week

Today I would like you to watch the Numberblocks video for number ‘10’. After watching the video below are a set of home learning challenges linking to the number 10. How many challenges can you complete?


Challenge 1 - Draw around both of your hands on a large piece of paper. Can you count your fingers? How many fingers do you have (including your thumbs)? You could write a number on each finger you have drawn to help you count them. Try counting your toes too, how many toes do you have? Do you have the same amount of toes as your fingers?

Challenge 2 - Do you know the song Ten Green Bottles? Try singing it with a grown-up. You could use some empty plastic bottles to count as you sing the song.

All Fred Talk games need to follow these steps:

1. Say the word in sounds. Ask children to repeat.

2. Say the word in sounds and then the whole word. Ask children to repeat.

1. Say ‘Fred has says ‘c-a-n’.

2. Ask children to say ‘c-a-n’. Pause to see if they can blend and find the picture of on the I spy sheet.

3. Say ‘c-a-n, can’. Ask children to repeat.    


Words to be sounded out in Fred Talk have been written as they should be said rather than how they are spelled.

Grow a Bean in A Bag

Have a go at this Science experiment to see if you can grow a beanstalk in a bag. Below are the instructions of how to carry out the experiment and there are also some questions to extend your child’s learning during the experiment. Good luck I can’t wait to see what happens in you experiments. (If you haven’t got any beans to plant why not try it with some other seeds?)
