2. The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle
3. A Seed in Need by Saviour Pirotta
4. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

We recognise this is an extraordinarily challenging time for millions of families and the disruption to schooling is (and will continue to be) immense over the coming weeks and months. We simply hope that our small gesture will give Schools and Families a little bit of fun and educational value at this difficult moment.

Maths – This week, there will be a focus on counting on. This will include children rehearsing counting from any given number which will support addition. (You don’t need to start counting from 1!)
Write numbers from 0 – 20. You can use your number line to help with this. Circle the teen numbers. Choose 5 numbers which were tricky. (You may want to encourage your child to choose 12 and 20 – these are often confused.) Write these below and try and find that many objects around your home. (colouring pencils, pasta shapes, counting cubes, toy cars, leaves from the garden)
Rehearse counting these with 1 to 1 correspondence. You can record what you have collected in your books if you like!
Story time – This week we should have been enjoying welcoming our baby chicks. Listen to the story of ‘Chicken Licken’.
Make a list of the names of the characters in the story.
Tuesday 31st March
