Think about your time in Class1 

Talk to a grown up about what you have enjoyed in class 1. What you have learnt and what you would like to be better at.

We would love to hear your thoughts?

*You could film them and email them to us or **write them down and share them with us.

Using coins

You could sort out the different coins in your money box, can you name the different coins?

Set up a mini food shop with priced items up to 10p or 20p.

Borrow some items from the cupboard (check with mum/dad first). Write some labels and start spending and inviting guests.

Why not try this?

*Change from 10p

**Change from 20p

Finding change is really tricky so the more practise children can get handling and using coins the better.

You could use 10 x 1p coins or 20 x 1p coins when you are practising. Give the correct amount of coins for the item that you are buying and count how many are left OR

count from the priced item up to your total eg. an apple costs 8p, count on from 8 to 10 (your answer will be 2) this will give you the correct amount of change that you need.

You may like to listen to this story:

*With the help of a grown up can you make your own rainbow?

Raindrops split sunlight. If you stand with your back to the sun, facing raindrops, you can see a rainbow. Try making a rainbow with the spray from a hose.

Your lovely face:

Have a look in the mirror and REALLY focus on what you look like. What shape are your eyebrows? Are you eyes all one colour or any flecks of other colours? Does your skin have any freckles or unique marks? What shape are your lips? Any gaps or lost teeth?

Can you draw a self portrait and send us a photo of you with it? 

Diving in

Use this picture, talk about what you can see.

What do you think they are jumping from?

Why do you think they are diving in?

How do you think it feels to be in the water?

What might they see under water?

*write down some of the adjectives (describing words) that you used in your answers.

** write a few sentences about the picture or your own short story.

Mega Maths challenge:

This is to help the children gain a deeper understanding of notes. Take your time, make mistakes and go back to the problem all week if you like.

How much money could these children have?

Sam has 4 notes altogether.

Mo has 4 notes all the same.

How many answers can you come up with?

Please let us know!

There is more than one answer for each question!
