    Maths 

    Maths Starters week beginnind 28.9.20

    Last week we looked at comparative language, today we will look at the symbols for greater than & fewer than symbols. Watch this great song that explains how the symbols work: 

    Using the superhero sheet, count & record the number of objects on each side, then compare the two totals & use > < or = in between them. If your child struggles, try using counters to represent the two sets of objects and compare using a paper crocodile or a peg acting as a crocodile.

    Superhero more than and less than activity

    Greater then Less Than Crocodiles 

    To recap the use of the symbols, as learnt today.

     

    Writing

    Recap the story of ‘Peace At Last’. Today we will discuss the story and opinions of it. Explain each of the sections & ask your child to think about their responses.

    Ask the children to consider their likes, dislikes, patterns in the text and puzzles – questions that you’d ask the author.

    Example responses are available for ideas.

    Introduce ordinal numbers using the clip above. We can count in order, but when racing or queuing we often use ordinal numbers to say which position everyone is in. Use some toys to race and put them in order.

    Use the dinosaur cut and stick sheet to show your understanding of ordinal numbers. Can you find the winning dinosaur? Which dinosaur came last?

Recap some of the noisy objects that they found/heard in their homes last week, try making the sounds they might make. Using a similar grid to the one used yesterday, sound out & record the name of the noisy object and in the box next to it write down the sound that it makes.

It is really important to know your address, that way if you ever get lost, you can tell a police officer your address and they can take you home. We would like you to write out your address on an envelope, maybe you could even write yourself a little note and ask someone to post it. It will come to your house when a postal worker delivers it. Here is my address here at school, just so you know what yours should look like:

    The weather here in England can change a lot. Have a chat about the kinds of weather you see where you live. What kinds of clothes do we wear here to help us to feel comfortable in these different kinds of weather? How do our homes protect us from warm or cool temperatures? Now we want you to think about other places around the world that have different weather. Can you find a place that is really hot or one that is very cold? Maybe your cousins live in an incredibly hot and sunny country. Perhaps your grandparents live somewhere that is cold and has lots of snow and ice.

    We would like to see what you find out about these places and how the clothes and homes are different to our own
