Any you are not confident with today, keep repeating them all week for 5 minutes until you are confident.

We are carrying on with the story of 'The Bog Baby.'

Today we are going to write a list of things that a Bog Baby might need. Remember to include a comma (,) after every item on your list and the connective 'and,' before writing the very last item on the list. A fullstop is included at the very end of the list. 

If you would like an extra challenge, choose the worksheet option entitled 'BB List,' and try and include an adjective to describe each item on your list.

E.g. Sweet cake, rough gravel, and warm water.

Today in Maths we are looking at adding by making 10. This is a useful skill to learn to help us with out Maths work in the future. Please see the video and resources below. It would be useful to join in with the lesson using practical resources - You can print out the tens frame below or draw one, and you need around 15 small items (I used chocolate buttons)! You can complete the worksheet below or work practically, whichever you prefer. Don't worry if you find one method more useful than another, it's all about learning and recognising different methods, as there might be one you find useful! smiley


Have a go at the Maths Mastery cards if you would like a challenge.
