A message from Miss Bridges and Mrs Revell

As time goes by, we know it is getting harder for some of you to stay positive. We want you to know that we are very proud of all of the work that you have been doing at home, all of the kind gestures you have been doing for your family and how well you are coping. Remember as long as you are doing the best you can and aiming to be the best that you can be then you should be exceptionally proud of yourself.

Let's try and keep thinking positively, let's look for the good in everything and think hard about everything that is going well. You are all fabulous.

What was the highlight of your week last week?

Miss Bridges' favourite moment was watching one of the baby ducklings hatch from an egg- it was truely a magical moment!

Don't forget to look at the "egg-citing delivery" page for more duckling updates and challenges this week.

## A duckling hatching

This week's challenges:

Maths:

Challenge one: Let's start by thinking about our numbers. Can you build numbers using equipment around your house or in the garden? Can you build numbers over 20?

Can you compare two of your numbers using the symbols < and >? (remember the crocodile eats the largest number).

Can you say the number 1 more and 1 less than the number you have made? How about ten more and ten less?

Challenge two:

Lets look at subtraction.

You could do this by counting backwards on a numberline. Practise subtracting a one digit number from a 2 digit number e.g. 13-7   15-9    14-8. Try numbers over 20 if you find this easy.
