Daily home learning: Monday 27th April

What did you get up to at the weekend? 

Good morning, it's Monday! :) 

I hope you had a nice weekend and enjoyed the sunshine, I look forward to hearing from you and seeing what you've been up to. 

Have a great day! 



Counting: Counting your socks. How many do you have? Can you group them? (e.g. red ones, blue ones, stripy ones, spotty ones)

Challenge: Can you make 10 using loose parts? (buttons, socks, satsumas, hairbands, raisins, lego) Can you now split the amount into two parts. How many do you have in each part? (e.g. I have 10 raisins, I have 3 here and 7 there) The two parts that make up 10 are called number bonds. Can you find any other number bonds?  

Extension: Can you write the number bonds using numerals and maths symbols 

e.g. 5+5=10  4+6=10  8+2=10... 

Further extension: Can you make some missing number challenges to test your child’s understanding of number bonds. E.g. 2+ ? =10  9+ ?=10.... 

See attachments for further number bond practice :)
