Daily Challenges: Tuesday 21st April
I am so proud of all your achievements so far, here are today's challenges...
Happy Tuesday Team Spurrier,
Wow the Padlet went crazy yesterday. Thank you for all of your amazing videos and photos, they’re amazing. Please can you all reach out to your class friends as there are some children who I haven’t heard from yet and they may be unaware that the blog and Padlet exists.
Here are today’s challenges, who will be my next RAPS home learning star?
Maths: Counting: Counting in 10’s
Starter Challenge: Can you write your counting in 10’s down. Do you see a pattern? What is it? Can you look at the 10’s on a hundred square? Which one comes next?
Challenge: Can you explain what an estimate is? Can you estimate the amount of a group of objects? Remember it’s a sensible guess. Estimating and counting socks from the sock drawer. Can you estimate how many socks are in the basket? • Tip the socks out on to the floor. • Now can you spot any groups of socks together? • Can you estimate again then check how many there are by counting them? Challenge: Can you write the number of how many you think you have before counting them. When might we use estimating in everyday life?
See attached powerpoint and sheets for more estimating fun and challenges.

Main: The Tiny seed- music and dance
Challenge: Movement and music:
Encourage the children to experiment with different ways of travelling e.g. hopping over the hot sand, jumping over the tall waves, moving slowly/quickly as the wind changes speed and direction. Musical instruments could also be used to add sound effects to the story e.g. wood blocks for the birds pecking at the seeds or a shaker to show the seeds being blown along in the wind. Can you create your own musical instruments with things from around the home. E.g. a shaker from a bottle with rice in etc.
Upload your photos and videos of the tiny seed to the padlet.
Miss Dannell sent us a great link that some of you may want to try. It is learning sign language together through songs and dances with a competition if you would like to enter.
