Home learning - Friday 3rd April

Literacy

For our last rhyming activity of the week, I have made a picture of words that rhyme (clicking on the small picture will open it in a new window). These include the ones used earlier in the week as well as a few more. Please play 'I Spy' using the picture, but instead of something beginning with, try "something rhyming with..."

Maths

This week we have been practising using the words ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare two sets of objects. (At Nursery we use the word ‘fewer’ to describe numbers of countable objects, such as people or pencils. ‘Less’ would be used to describe smaller amount of something that cannot be individually counted, such as money, water or time.)

For today's task, please gather a collection of about 15 to 20 small items, such as small building bricks, pom-poms, beads, buttons or coins. Place the collection of items inside a small bag or box. Take it in turns to take a handful of items.

  1. Show your handful of items to each other.
  2. Who has more? Who has fewer?
  3. Put the items back in the bag and try again!
  4. Have a go at taking handfuls of different sizes. For example, sometimes take a big handful of items and the next time only take a small handful of items.

Questions to ask:

  • What can you tell me about the number of objects?
  • I think I have more than you – how could we check?
  • What makes you think you have more?
