Maths – Number of the Week – 7 – Today I would like you to watch the Numberblocks video for number ‘7’. After watching the video below are a set of home learning challenges linking to the number 7. How many challenges can you complete?


Link the Numberblocks 6 video on BBC iPlayer -


Challenge 1 - Have you seen a rainbow before? Rainbows can appear when it is sunny and rainy at the same time. There are 7 colours in a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue,

indigo (dark blue) and violet (purple). Draw or paint a picture of a rainbow. Can you include all 7 colours?

Challenge 2 - On the Planet Seven, the aliens all have 7 eyes! Can you create a model or a picture of an alien to live on Planet Seven? You could use playdough, empty packaging, or draw or paint a picture of your alien. Make sure you count the eyes very carefully!


Phonics – Read Write Inc Picture Recognition –Today the new picture card is ‘umbrella’.


From this week all phonics activities will be on Tapestry with a video of Miss Harding teaching the lesson.
