-Focus on numbers 1-5

-Use resources in your house (pasta, cereal, counters)

- Find two small amounts and add them together. eg. 2+1=3

- Repeat addition by swapping numbers over (eg 2+1=3 and 1+2=3), what do they notice?

- Re-enforce by using fingers to find the total amount.

-Use words like (addition, add, plus) (altogether, total, equals)


L.O:  To understand the difference between hard and soft materials 


Look around your house for different objects. 

Start off by finding 'hard objects' around your house e.g: tin, remote, fork, chair etc

Ask your child to describe them. What do they look like? What do they feel like? Can they bend? Are they squishy? Are they heavy? Are they firm? Can you cut it? Can you fold it?


Repeat with finding objects around the house that are 'soft.' e.g: teddy bear, cushion, toilet roll, cotton wool etc

Ask your child to describe them. What do they look like? What do they feel like? Can you bend it? Is it gooey? Is it light? Is it smooth?


Can you sort them into 'hard and soft'  (use the example below to help)


There is a video below to support your child's learning.
