Quick fire mental maths- Doubles to 10. Number bonds to 10. (For the week).


All Children- Discuss why some things need to be weighed. Hopefully your child might talk about making a cake. Why is it important to use a specific amount of ingredients? What would happen if we put too many eggs in or not enough flour? It is interesting to listen to their reasoning.

Most Children- Ask your child with your support to collect some tins, fruit, vegetables, toiletries etc. Encourage your child to sort the foods according to their own criterion. Can you find another way? Perhaps you could sort them as food and toiletries and ask your child if they can tell you how you have sorted them?

Challenge- Choose a selection of foods and record their weights. Talk about the scale of measurement used. Children can then draw the food and record the measurement. Which was the heaviest/lightest?



To know that skin is sensitive to touch (Continue from yesterday).

Perhaps your child could shut their eyes and you touch their cheeks, arms, ears etc. and your child could tell you what part of their body you are touching. Then swap over. Discuss the fact that we can feel all over our bodies; that we feel with our skin; and that the most sensitive parts of our bodies include our fingertips and mouth. 


Make a drum


Your child will need adult support but you can make it quite easily and adapt the resources.



I am a powerful dragon- Stand on your knees, arms at your sides.

I am alert and aligned- Lunge 1 foot forward, hands on thigh.

I inhale and expand- Stretch forward and down, reach arms up.

HA! I breathe out fire! - Exhale with a big HA! Spread your fingers.

Try breathing fire often to cleanse and strengthen your lungs.

Why are dragons special?

Why are you special? 

Weekly Welsh

Create a welsh poem about food (bwyd)

Bwyd, bwyd, bwyd

Dw i'n hoffi bwyd

Dw i'n hoffi afal

Dw i'n hoffi oren

Dw i'n hoffi mefus

Dw i'n hoffi bwyd

You can make this more challenging by using adjectives. For eg. bananas melyn, mefus coch.

Thank you and keep yourselves safe.
