Monday 1st March-
After your super shape work last week we are now back to number again and we are going to work on one more/ one less.
To start the week we would like you to explore the powerpoint page below please. You will see that you can move the frogs on and off of the lily pad. We would like you to talk through different problems featuring one more/ one less please. For example, there are 6 frogs on a lily pad. One jumps into the pond. How many frogs are left on the lily pad?
There are 4 frogs on a lily pad. One jumps onto the pad. How many frogs are on the lily pad now?
There are 9 frogs relaxing on the lily pad. One jumps away to find some food. How many are left on the lily pad?
Tuesday 2nd March-
You did an amazing job yesterday so today we would like you to use some of your things from home to build towers. Maybe you will use lego, perhaps duplo, you might have some wooden blocks? It is up to you what you use.
First of all we would like you to build a tower with 7 bricks please. Can you build two more towers of bricks, one that uses one less than 7 bricks and one that uses one more than 7? Repeat again with another number- build a tower with 5 bricks. Can you build two more towers of bricks, one that uses one less than 5 bricks and one that uses one more?
Have a look at the picture below for an idea of how you could present your towers.
Wednesday 3rd March-
Today we would like you to play this game with some very busy bees! You can explore one more/ one less up to 10 or if you feel your child is ready for a challenge then you can do between 1-20.
Thursday 4th March-
To help with our one more/ one less work, today we would like you to get out and about and use a giant number line to jump forwards and backwards! This sounds a bit tricky but it is actually very straightforward. Watch the video below to see how you can do it at home.
Friday 5th March-
It is the end of the week and officially the last day of home schooling! Wow! You’ve done it. You definitely deserve a treat today so we have a little task that you can complete with a grown up or a sibling….it involves sweeties or chocolate!
First you need to ask your grown-up to give you a number. Place this number of chocolate pieces or sweeties on to a plate. If your grown-up says ‘one more’, can you add one more and say the number you have? If your grown-up says ‘one less’, can you eat one then count the number you have left? Every time you get the answer right you get 1 point. Who will be the first person to get 10 points? You or your grown up?
