This week we will be learning about one more and one less.
- Star words you will need: one more, one less, add, subtract, take away, count, number, object, number line
- Today we will be focusing on: one more.
- Collect 20 items of the same object from your home e.g. pencils, toys. Use your number cards from last week’s learning.
- Choose a number card from 0-20. Count out that many objects.
- Show one more than the number by adding one more object. Count how many objects you have now.
- Say how many objects you have e.g. “I started with 12. I added one more. Now I have 13. One more than 12 is 13.”
- Repeat this for a variety of numbers. Please keep the objects for the weeks learning.
Key questions: Can you show one more than a number using objects? Can you say one more than a number in a full sentence?
Understanding the World
Monday is World Oceans Day.
There is a live broadcast at 10 am with the Environment Agency and the World Wildlife Fund which is aimed at 7 - 11 year olds. Here is the link:
This year, the focus is on plastic pollution in our oceans.
Some information and nice videos can be found on the links below:
Click the document below and look at the pictures.
- Say “Oh dear, can you see what has happened to our ocean?” Take time to listen to your child's explanations about what might have happened.
- Discuss with the children that the ocean has been polluted.
- Explain the vocabulary pollution/polluted, for example, “Sometimes, rubbish and litter can make their way into our seas and oceans. This can be dangerous and harm our sea creatures”.
- Discuss with your child about the things floating in the water/on the sand.
- Ask them why they think this might have happened. Explain that the rubbish has got into the ocean and now the water is no longer clean and safe for the creatures.
- Ask your child if they can help to find and rescue the sea creatures and explain what has happened to them, e.g. the turtle has been caught up in the netting, the fish is trapped in the plastic bottle.
- Ask the children, “Where do you think the rubbish in our oceans comes from?”
- Talk to your child about this being a problem in our real world.
- Ask your child if they have any ideas about how this problem could be solved. Talk about how important it is not to drop litter on beaches and to take rubbish home and put it in the correct type of recycling bins, so we can keep our oceans clean and creatures safe.
- Ask your child to create a happy and sad ocean picture.
- Use the Looking after Our Oceans Discussion Prompt Cards to recap the main points of the activity and to provide children with ideas for their happy and sad ocean picture.
Fold a large piece of paper in half. Using the Sea Creature Cut-Outs and the Litter Picture Cut-Outs, your child can stick pictures on one half on the paper to show what a happy ocean would look like and on the second half, what a sad ocean would look like.
Or they can add their own drawings onto the picture if they choose to.
