Hello Wrens! Today I want you to search out 3D shapes.
Remember 3D shapes have 3 dimensions. These dimensions are length, width, and height. While 2D shapes are flat, 3D shapes objects that have depth to them.
Have a look around your house and garden see how many 3D shapes you can find. Remember to look for spheres, cubes, cuboids, cylinders, pyramids and cones.
I found 3 boxes of cereal and 2 tins of beans. So, I found 3 cuboids and 2 cylinders. Sam found a football. What shape did he find? Will found a Pritt Stick. What shape did he find?
Can you make a name card for each type of shape and put your collected items in the correct group?
Ask your grown up to send me a photo of your shape collections.
If you would like a shape hunt sheet, I have attached one below. I have also included a 3D shape colouring activity, if you would like to try that.
We have been working hard in school on learning to say numbers in the correct order, to recognise the numerals, write them and to be able to associate a number with a group of objects of the same amount.
The first task today is to complete the missing number sequencing sheet to 20.
Then complete these sequences
15 _ 13 _ _ _ _ 8 _ _5 4 _ 2 _ 0
13 12 _ 10 9_ _ 6 _ _ 3 _ _ _
20 _ 18 _ _ 15
Wrens can also invent their own missing number sequences for other members of their family to complete!
(Children have to be able to count backwards as well as forwards - this is beneficial when adding and subtracting.)
Then complete the addition sheet.
Please encourage your child to count on from the first number. Eg. If the calculation is 7 + 3. Ask them to count on 3 more from 7 - 8, 9, 10 .
Any problems please feel free to contact me.
