Did it feel longer or shorter than before? Now, how many hops/skips/jumps can you do in 1 minute? Did it feel like a very long time? Get your coat/jacket. How long does it take you to put it on? Time yourself. Try again, can you do it quicker the second time? Time yourself tidying up your toys? How long does it take you? What else can you time yourself doing?

Maths:Every day practise writing your numbers from 0 - 10. Remember to always start at the top. This week make a weather chart - it could look something like this: Each day record what the weather is like on the chart. Draw a sun if it's sunny, a cloud if it's cloudy, rain if it's rainy. Discuss the days of the week, say them in order, link to yesterday, today and tomorrow, such as: What day is it today? What is the weather like? What day was it yesterday? What was the weather like yesterday? What day will it be tomorrow? What do you think the weather will be like tomorrow? At the end of the week, count how many sunny, rainy, windy, cloudy days there have been. Challenge: Could we have 8 cloudy days in one week? Challenge: The next time it rains, go out puddle jumping with a grown-up. Put on your wellies and jump in the puddles. What words would you use to describe the puddles? What sounds can you hear when you jump in them?Hello Reception. Hope you enjoyed your half term. Here is your learning for this week. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b00jdlm2/cbeebies-bedtime-stories After Jesus had gone back to his Father in heaven, his friends were sad. They missed him. They felt lonely and afraid without him. On Pentecost day, they were all together in the house. Crowds of people came to Jerusalem to celebrate the feast. The friends of Jesus did not go out to join them. They stayed all together in the house. They talked about Jesus and remembered what he had told them. As the wind filled the room, they began to feel different. Joy and happiness filled their hearts. It was wonderful. They knew that Jesus had kept his promise to send a new friend, the Holy Spirit. “Let’s go out and join the crowds.” Peter said. “Let’s tell them the Good News that Jesus is alive.”Based on Acts 2: 1-4 As you read the story, use your face to show how Jesus' friends were feeling as the story goes on.
Maths Monday Doubling - Look in a mirror. Hold 1 finger up. Can you see twice as many fingers? How many fingers are there? (2). It is called doubling when we have twice as many as something. Double 1 is two. Hold 2 fingers up. Now there are double 2 fingers. How many now? (4) Repeat for 3 fingers, 4 fingers and 5 fingers. Tuesday Doubling - Explore doubling using different objects. Sit facing another person. Get 1 toy. The other person matches that with 1 toy. Now we have 2. Double 1 is 2. Get 2 of something else. Can you match it? How many altogether? Repeat for 3, 4 and 5. If you have dice or dominoes, look for double patterns. You could use an egg carton to make double patterns as well. Place objects in each 'egg' space on one side, match with objects on the other side to make a double. How many in total? Wednesday Halving - When we talk about halving we talk about sharing equally between two groups (making sure each group has the same amount and that it is fair). Have a teddy bear's picnic with 2 bears (or any soft toy) and 2 plates. Get 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 different food items or objects to represent food. e.g 2 oranges, 4 biscuits, 6 pieces of cucumber, 8 cherry tomatoes, 10 grapes/raisins. Share the items equally so that each bear has the same amount. What if I gave one teddy 3 out of the 4 biscuits and the other teddy 1 out of the 4? Is that fair? Challenge: What if I had 1 sandwich or 1 apple? Can I share it between the teddy bears? How can I share it? I could cut it in half (two pieces that are the same). Thursday Halving - Get any objects and make a group of 2. Share equally between you and another person. How many have you got? Practise saying "Half of 2 is 1." Do the same with 4 objects. Share equally between you and another person. How many have you got? Practise saying "Half of 4 is 2." Do the same with 6, 8 and 10 objects. Remember to say each time, "Half of ___ is ___."Friday Watch the Numberblocks episode "Double Trouble". https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08q4jkq/numberblocks-series-2-double-trouble Practise counting the doubles - double 1 is 2, double 2 is 4, double 3 is 6, double 4 is 8, double 5 is 10 Practise saying the halves - half of 2 is 1, half of 4 is 2, half of 6 is 3, half of 8 is 4, half of 10 is 5 Keep practising doubling and halving/sharing in everyday situations e.g. having a snack or sharing toys Challenge:Choose from one of these activties or if you have time do them all! - Set up an imaginative small world with mini figures (people and/or animals), building blocks and your own trees and buildings made from paper and card.
- Can you make a den? You could make one using chairs and blankets inside. If it’s nice weather, you could make one outside.
- Play a game of hide and seek with your family. This is a great game to play, whatever the weather, because you can play it inside or out. Can you think of a great place to hide?

Count your objects to make sure you have 10. Now pick up 1 of your objects and hide it behind your back. How many have you got left? Talk about what has happened - First I had 10. Then I took 1 away. Now I have 9 left. Continue taking 1 away each time like in the story from yesterday. Remember to say what has happened - First I had 9 or 8 or 7 etc Then I took 1 away. Now I have 8 left or 7 left etc Keep going until you have only 1 left. What happens if you take that one away? Now I have 0 (zero) left. Talk about what 0 means (none left, nothing at all). Challenge - Do something arty.
