Numeracy - Today we are going to look at odd and even numbers.
Mr Williams has a really cool rap he uses to help remember which numbers are odd and which are even. He taught it to Miss Roberts last year; have a look at the video below and see if you can join in!
The words are:
2, 4, 6, 8
Even numbers are so great!
1, 3, 5, 7, 9
These are odd all the time, all the time, all the time!
Can you use a sheet of your card to make some Easter eggs - ask a grown up to draw ten eggs, or to make it a bit more tricky a template for you to draw around and cut out. Write your numbers one to ten, one on each egg. On the back of your eggs can you draw a pattern - a spotty pattern on all your odd eggs and a stripy pattern on all your even eggs? If you really want to impress us then you can make sure all your patterns are symmetrical! Now you have made your Easter number eggs, it’s up to you what you do with them. You could:
Hide them around the house and go on an egg hunt with two baskets - one for odd numbers, one for even numbers.
You could have a race against someone else in your house; one of you has to find all the odd numbers, the other has to find all the even numbers! Or you could play by yourself and time yourself finding the odd numbers first time, then the even numbers the second time - which did you find the quickest?
Play a memory pair game with your number cards from the other week.
Alyssa’s daddy had some very good ideas for number card games last week so you could try one with your egg cards; Alyssa's daddy gave her a maths question, then she had to go and find the answer.
Whatever you do, we hope you have an egg-cellent time!
Feel good Friday - last week, lots of you sent kind messages to loved ones to let them know you were thinking of them. This week, we would like you to look to the future. We know it has been a tricky time having to stay at home and not go out and do the things you would normally do like go to the park, visit places, go and see friends or family, or have people visit you. Therefore we thought it would be a nice little challenge to make a 'future bucket list!'
- Find a jar or something similar at home and decorate it however you would like.
- Then, every time you or a family member wish you could do something, write it down on a little piece of paper, fold it up and pop it in the jar.
- When our world goes back to normal, you will have a lovely little list of wishes that you can work your way through, and every time you do one, you can appreciate all the little things in life that make it special.
- Until then, you can enjoy watching your jar fill up with magical things to look forward to.
Thank you to Miss Roberts' mummy for sharing this lovely idea with her.
