How are you all? It has been so long since we have seen some of you but we are always so pleased when you pop up on the Blog or you complete and share some of the tasks we have set for you to do.
Here are some ideas for you this week. Remember you can upload photos of your work straight to Purple Mash and these will then be marked and rewarded that way - please give it a go.
We are still highly recommending the White Rose Materials to support your child in Maths at home. We are using these to support learners in class too and will be on week 10 this week. To stretch and extend further we will attach a set of sheets linked to White Rose Maths from Third Space each week. We hope these will provide you more content for Maths at home, they will be attached to the bottom of this page or you can find previous weeks sheets here.
This week’s NRich task can be found here. It is called Coloured Triangles and is an interactive game that explores pattern and symmetry.
To support extending their problem solving skills through games and challenges please take a look at 'I see Maths' Ks1 games too.
Also encourage your child to use their Numbots login regularly for short bursts to practise their recall of number bonds and help to build their robots too. It is absolutely reasonable to type the answers in for them if they are fluently solving the questions but are not able to type them in quickly enough.

Take a look at the ‘Little Book about Reptiles’ I have allocated in Active Learn – you can click ‘Read to Me’ or share it with a grown up or sibling.
Can you find out what sets Reptiles apart from other animals? Dinosaurs were reptiles, they had many special things about them that made them very successful on Earth.
Can you write an information leaflet using what you have found out in the ‘Reptiles Leaflet’ task I have allocated to you on Purple Mash? Submit your work once you have completed it for us to see and share it with your friends in class.
There’s also a quiz for you to sort the different animals into Reptiles or Not Reptiles for you to play on Purple Mash.
