Hello Reception for the last time this year. This is your final week of home learning. We look forward to seeing you back in September in YEAR 1! How exciting! Enjoy your holidays. Have fun but do try to do some reading and counting!
The answers to last week's Summer Spot the Difference were - the colour of the girl's swimming costume, the colour of the man's apron, one less cloud in the sky, one less sunflower, the colour of the flowers on the bush, the colour of the drink on the table, the ladybird on the wall has disappeared and there are flowers on the grass in front of the paddling pool. Well done if you got them all!

Tuesday- Subtraction as take away
Use the bus template below or draw your own on paper. Find 10 objects that could represent people. If you have Lego people, perfect! Otherwise you can use buttons or anything else that will work as counters. Keep these safe as you will need them again tomorrow.
Place 10 objects onto the windows of the bus.
Use the sentences - First there were 10 people on the bus. Then 4 people got off. Now there are 6 people on the bus.
Keep practising - Try starting with different numbers such as 9 or 7 and use different numbers of people getting off the bus.
Wednesday - Subtraction as partitioning
You need the bus and objects that you had yesterday. You also need some paper to draw part-part-whole model diagrams on to show what you are doing like you did last week. See the one below for ideas.
Start with the story - First there were 9 people on the bus. (Write 9 in the whole circle at the top). Then 4 people got off the bus. (Draw 4 objects in the first part circle). Now there are ....... (How many objects will you draw in the final part circle to show how many people are still on the bus? 5)
Repeat with different starting numbers and different parts being taken away. Draw the part-part-whole model to match your story.
Thursday - Subtraction as take away
Play Four in A Row. See the instructions and game board below.
Roll 2 dice. If you haven't got dice use this interactive dice. https://nrich.maths.org/6717 Click on the purple cog to change to dots instead of numbers. Take the smaller number away from the larger number. Use objects if you want to help you. Cover the answer with a counter.
The first person to cover four numbers in a row is the winner.
Friday - Subtraction as difference
Watch this Numberblocks episode about difference in Maths.
Roll a dice and build a tower using that number of blocks. Roll the dice again. Build another tower of blocks using that number of blocks. Put the two towers next to each other. What's the difference between the two towers? Practise saying The difference between 4 and 6 is 2.
Challenge: Now that you are coming to the end of Reception class and moving to Year 1 in September, talk to your grown up about what you enjoyed doing in Reception this year. It is sad that many of you didn't get to finish your year at school but there were many things that you did while you were at school. What do you remember about your time in Reception? What did you enjoy? What was your favourite activity? What can you do now that you couldn't do in Nursery? Was there anything you didn't like?
Looking forward to Year 1 - What are you looking forward to? What are you worried about? What will be the same as Reception? What will be different?
In order to help your child get ready for Year 1, there are many things you can help them to do over the Summer holidays.
