Today we are looking at ordering numbers from smallest to largest and visa versa. It is important the children are able to identify the tens in the different numbers and order them accordingly e.g. 15 has 1 ten, 45 has 4 tens so 15 is therefore smaller so would go before 45. Similarly, the children can look at the ones to help them order numbers with the same tens e.g 25 has 2 tens and 5 ones, 28 has 2 tens and 8 ones, therefore 28 is larger.
if your child is struggling with this concept, you may use a number line and they could circle each number and order them accordingly.
In writing today we are having a grammar lesson focussing on the suffix -s and -es.
When we have more than 1 of something, it becomes a plural and therefore we change the ending of the word e.g. crayon/crayons. The -es ending sounds like 'is' e.g. in boxes/foxes/bushes/dishes.
If you used a single -s on the end of words such as fox/push it would be too tricky to say, and that is why we use -es instead. It is important the children can select the correct ending when spelling.
Today is a perfect opportunity for you to practice spelling new words.
In DT today I would like you to junk model your own animal using any resources you have at home. Could it be a red animal that the red crayon may be able to colour?
Try and be as creative as possible, have a look at my examples below.
