Thursday 21st January

Good morning Reception Class.  Here is your learning for today.


Maths - 

I am learning to halve a number. 

Children to count out an even number of counters up to 20.  Using 2 plates, explain that they are going to share the counters equally (they may wish to share between toys).  Explain to children that to halve something means to share equally between 2.  Have the children halve the counters by saying ‘1 for you, 1 for you’ until all of the counters have been shared out.  Children to then count how many are on one plate and check that there is the same amount of the other plate.  Children to say back ‘half of __ is __’ 


Literacy - 

I am learning to write a sentence. 

 Inuit people have lots of different hobbies.  What hobbies do you have?  Draw a picture and write a sentence starting ‘I enjoy.....’ try to think of two things you enjoy and use the word and to link these together in your sentence.
