Maths – Number of the Week

Today I would like you to watch the Numberblocks video for number ‘9’. After watching the video below are a set of home learning challenges linking to the number 8. How many challenges can you complete?


Challenge 1 - Use some toy cars or pictures of cars to make a traffic jam! Can you make a long line of 9 cars in a traffic jam? How many would you have if another car joined the


Challenge 2 - 999 is a very important number. It is the number of the emergency services, such as police, fire and ambulance. Draw a poster to tell people about this important number.

You could write the number and draw a picture of some police officers, fire fighters or paramedics.

Thinking Thursdays

(Science, investigations, exploring the world and nature)

Today I would like you to carry out a Three Little Pigs STEM house building experiment. In the STEM project, you’re going to try building all three types of the Three Little Pigs’ houses. The goal is to make the house that can stand up best to a grown-ups “wolf blowing” or you could use a hair dryer for blowing.

You will need to build a straw, stick and brick house. You could use straws, lolly pop sticks, wooden blocks, string, masking tape, and rubber bands.

Below is an example of some STEM experiment houses. I can’t wait to see the houses you build for you experiment.
