Week 4 (21st March - 24th March)

This week, we are continuing with the theme of Dinosaurs.



This week in phonics we are looking back over the digraphs 'th' and 'ng'. Our phonics video linked above will remind you of these sounds.


Here are some pictures. Can you use your robot arms to sound them out? Challenge yourself to write these out and then add sound buttons!



Here are some funny pictures. Can you write a short sentence about what you can see?



Warm your brains up by trying to subitise the amounts in this video:

Subitising means that our brains see an amount without counting.


This week, we are starting to look at subtraction. Listen and join along to this song. What happens to number of currant buns when someone buys 1?


Now listen to this song? Does the amount of people get 1 more or 1 less each time?


Challenge: Can you find 10 toys and make your own song. Don't forget, when you take 1 away each time, the number will become 1 less. Can you write a number sentence for this?
