            Good Afternoon Reception 




This afternoon you need to start with your number warm up.

Join in with the song and dance below. 

Practise your number order and number writing. 


Adults- Give the children their number cards (muddled up) and ask them to put them in order. Then call out different numbers (based on where the children are up to) for the children to write down.



This afternoon for you maths work I would like you to see if you can solve the addition sums below.



Addiiton to 10



Addition to 20


Additon to 30


Adults there are a lot of sums on the sheets so there is no need  to do them all. 

Please note the sheet above has a typing error.

One sum is 22-6 = instead of 22+6 =  Please change it. 

I have added the images above to worksheets for those that prefer them on a sheet. There is an extra tricky challenge one with addition up to one hundred. If your child is very confident with their numbers and addition by counting on or using a number square then they can try that one instead. yes

Final challenge


It is time to get creative!angel



In our story today Zog had to defeat a knight and the princess lived in a castle. 


Can you make your own knight, princess, or castle? 


You can draw, paint, use some junk modelling equipment, building blocks or Lego. 


Have a look at the images below to give you some ideas.



Have Fun!cheeky
