Year One: Can you count in 1's up to 100? Have a go at writing your numbers down. How high can you get to?

Reception: complete the ‘2D colouring shapes’ sheet at the bottom of the page. Photograph your completed sheet and upload it to Tapestry. 
Year One: Take a closer look at each shape. How many corners does each shape have? Count the number of sides. Complete the ‘Name the 2D shape worksheet’ at the bottom of the page and email me a photograph of your completed work.

 

Tuesday

Warm Up: Reception: Can you write numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 in the air, use your fingers, use your whole arm to make giant numbers in the air! Use poms poms or craft materials to create each number.
 

Year One: Can you count in 1's up to 100? Have a go at writing your numbers down. How high can you get to?

Can you beat yesterday's number? Are all your numbers the correct way round?

 

Main Teaching: Shapes are everywhere. Work through the ‘Everyday 2d shapes powerpoint’ at the bottom of the page. Now go at have a look around your house. How many of each shape can you find? Year One; Complete the ‘Shape hunt worksheet’ at the bottom of the page and then the cut and stick activity called ‘2D shape sorting activity sheet’ and email me your results. Reception; take lots of photos of your findings and upload them on to Tapestry. 

 

Wednesday

Warm Up: Reception: Count up to 20 and beyond. You could use your fingers to help you and/or counters. 

 

Year One: Can you count in 1's up to 100? Have a go at writing your numbers down. How high can you get to?

Can you beat yesterday's number? Are all your numbers the correct way round?

 

Main Teaching: What pictures and models can we make with the shapes we have learnt about? Can you make round firework? A pointed rocket? A five pointed star? Which shapes can you put together to make these pictures? Experiment and the photograph your creations and send them to me. (Reception via Tapestry and Year One via email). There is a cut and stick sheet below, ‘2d shapes firework cut out matching activity,’ if you don’t have any shapes at home. Or you could ask an adult to cut some shapes out for you to use. 

 

Thursday

Warm Up: Reception: Pick a number card 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Can you jump that many times? Pick another number and pat your head that many times? Repeat with different actions. e.g. hop, thumbs up, stand up/sit down, etc. Can you write them down using chalk outside, your finger in your sand pit, your finger through flour on a tray or using a pencil/crayon on paper?

 

Year One: Let's beat the clock! In one minute, how many numbers can you write down in order? what number did you get up to? Have another go! On your marks, get set, go! Did you write more down this time? Are you getting quicker?

Do not forget to write your numbers the correct way round?

 

Main Teaching: Have you got any building blocks? If so, pick one and draw around it. What shape has been drawn? If you turned your block and drew around it again, would the shape be the same or different? How many corners has it got? How many sides? Can you name the shape? Find objects around the house and draw around them. What shapes have you found? Can you group your objects according to the shapes they have got? I wonder if any of your cuddling blocks or objects are a regular 3D shape. Watch this video clip to find out some names of 3D shapes. 
You can play a game by asking an adult to draw around some objects and leaving these outlines behind. Your job is to match the correct object to it’s outline. Don’t forget to take photographs and send them to me with all the shape names you can correctly name. 

 

Friday

Warm Up: Reception: Pick a number card 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Can you jump that many times? Pick another number and pat your head that many times? Repeat with different actions. e.g. hop, thumbs up, stand up/sit down, etc. Can you write them down using chalk outside, your finger in your sand pit, your finger through flour on a tray or using a pencil/crayon on paper?

 

Year One: Let's beat the clock! In one minute, how many numbers can you write down in order? what number did you get up to? Have another go! On your marks, get set, go! Did you write more down this time? Are you getting quicker?

Do not forget to write your numbers the correct way round?
 

Main Teaching:

Let’s start with a 2D and 3D shape ‘feely bag’. Feel the shapes in the bag without looking, try to identify each shape using only your sense of touch. How does it feel? Does it have pointy corners? Does it feel round? Have fun trying to guess the shape before you reveal it! Now let’s explore how they move and interact with each other. Set up a simple ramp and test each shape to see if it rolls down the hill or slides? Next, test each shape to see if it can be stacked easily on top of another shape. Explore your child’s understanding of why a shape does (or does not) roll, slide or stack. Lastly, add sticks to playdough/grapes/marshmallows and create 2D and 3D shapes. Send me the photographs via Tapestry (Reception) and email (Year One).
