 As so many of you enjoyed it last week we thought we'd play it again! Can you play the dinosaur game to see if you can find the red word dinosaur egg.


Challenge: Listen to the word, write it down and click the egg you think it is, to see if you have written the right word. Give yourself a tick if you have. We wonder how many you can do?


Grown ups: The reception words are the first ones on the left hand side.

Screen free: The document below has the Reception red words on. Put out three words. Read one of them. Get your child to write the one they think it is. Then get them to match. If it is right, give them a big high five! Let us know how they get on over on Tapestry.

Have a go at using some toys to find all of the number pairs to 10. For example if you had 1 toy car how many more do you need to make 10? Your number pairs here are 1 and 9. Can you write them all down in addition number sentences e.g. 1+9=10?

There is a sheet below if your child finds writing the number sentences too tricky.
