L.O: To count pounds

Complete the attached sheet on counting money.  When we are counting we are just putting all of the coins together like adding. You could count on or draw the value of each coin to then count them altogether. It is also helpful to use your knowledge of counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s to help you count some of the amounts. Use real coins if you have any at home.

L.O: To describe

Explore the descriptions of the fruit, eg: ripe, red mango. Which have you eaten? Which is your favourite fruit?

Ask the children to write simple noun phrases to describe their favourite fruit eg: The crunchy apple. Develop this further by asking the child to write pairs of adjectives with a comma, eg: The sweet, shiny pepper.

L.O: To know how to be a good friend.

I have attached a PowerPoint about friendship as a way to start this session or you could watch this video:

Have a think about all the ways you are a good friend to others. This could be at lunch, in the classroom, at clubs and at home with family members. Record in your books (either in pictures with labels or sentences).  I have attached a sheet you could use, if you want to.
