Counting/Starter: Counting in 2’s. 

Today we are going to learn about odd and even numbers.  

We will begin to understand that quantities which can be shared into 2 equal groups with no items left over are even. Those which have one left over when they are shared into 2 equal groups are odd. Explore odd and even by grouping quantities into pairs. Even quantities can be grouped into pairs and odd quantities will have one left on their own.  

Challenge: Provide pots of items containing quantities from 1 to 10. Ask the children to count the items in each pot and decide if there is an odd or an even quantity. How could they check? 

Extension: If you go for a walk (your one form of exercise) have a look at the house numbers. What do they notice? Can you make your own model houses/drawing of houses and line them up in order on the odd and event sides of the street. 





Art/ Music 

Spring Art- What would you se spring? Can you create a piece of art that reflects spring time.  

What techniques could you use? Printing? Finger paints? Water colours? Rolling? Collage? Colour mixing? Texture exploration?  

Below are some examples of what you might like to create.


Miss Dannell's music challenge:

Hi everyone!  

Here is this week's music home learning. 

First watch the video to learn about body percussion.  

Why don't you try making some of the noises they make in the video? 

  • flap your arms like a penguin 

  • stomp your feat like a dinosaur 

  • click your tongue to sound like a unicorn 

  • rub your hands together 

  • pat your cheeks 

Watch the video to see how to play the Forbidden Rhythm game. The game involves you clapping a rhythm and the child repeating it back to you. 

Then open 'Play It' . Choose a song from the Feel The Beat section. Clap or make a noise in time to the beat of the song. 

Have fun!
