Number Line Addition

Jobs to do:

A Squash and a Squeeze

  • Decorate a box to make a house like the little Old Lady’s. Try and fit different objects in to see how many items of each can be fitted. You could fill the box with pens, lego, teddies, cutlery, balls…
  • Make number stories for all the animals who came into the house and then left using adding and subtracting.
  • How many animals lived in the house at different points in the story? How many eyes did they all have? How many legs? How many tails? 

Practise counting forwards and backwards and from different starting points.

Practise writing numbers and ordering them, topmarks.co.uk has lots of ordering games for you to explore.

Try wadding and subtracting using a number-line or using objects depending how confident you are. You could play a game using dice to decide which two numbers to add together, if you choose to do this, remember your number line will need to go up to number 12.You also don’t have to use paper and pencils to create a number line, you could make your own number cards and jump to each number, or you could use chalk on the ground outside.

Continue to practice your reading and writing of numbers
*Grownups* could you write the word for numbers—one, two, three, four five. Encourage your child to match the numeral to the world, if they are confident extend this activity with more number words 🙂 Thank you.

you must try not to fret.
If it’s not a happy ending,
then it hasn’t ended yet.”

  • Make a new page for the book in which the old lady invites another animal into her house.
  • Write a sentence to match the picture.

Cultural Capital

The Leaning Tower of Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most well-known buildings in the world. It makes up part of the cathedral complex in Pisa, Italy. The tower was designed to be a circular bell tower and its lean started in the early days of its long construction period.

Question: Why doesn’t the Leaning Tower of Pisa collapse?
Answer: The Leaning Tower of Pisa leans because its foundations are in soft soil which has over time caused it to sink. This has caused the tower to lean.

Have a go at creating a model of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
