Reception – Sharing, please do it systematically as last week.. ‘one for you, one for you, one for you’. Model activity (very adaptable). Repeat the vocabulary, sharing, fair and equal.

Today I would like the children to share, 3, 6 then 9 objects, fairly/equally between 3 teddy bears.  When confident 4, 8, 12 objects between 4 teddy bears.


Year 1 – Measurement – time. Children are introduced to key vocabulary related to time. They use before and after to describe, sort and order events. Building on this, they use first and next to describe an order of events. When talking about the day, children use the language: morning, afternoon and evening.

Can you sort these activities into before and after school columns?

Breakfast – bedtime story – get dressed – go to a party

Can you think of anymore activities that you do at these times of the day?



Reception – Repeat yesterdays activity – Ext – 15 shared between 3 – how many in each group? 20 shared between 4 – how many in each group? 


Year 1 – Recap yesterdays learning, then answer following questions:

Q1 - Which activities do you do before school?

Q2 - Which activities do you do after school?

Q3 - What do you do in the morning?
