We are continuing with White Rose, as we have been in school.  Our next lesson is on comparing number bonds.


Watch the video below:

Comparing number bonds


When you have watched the video, complete page 19 and 20 in your White Rose booklet.





Last week you interviewed someone in your family about their favourite toy.  This week can you interview someone else?  It would be good if it was someone from a different generation e.g. a grandparent.


Use the questions from last week and add some of your own.  Have they still got it?  Can you see a photo of it?

In Murphy Class we have lots of opportunities to be creative and use our construction toys.  Make sure you make time in your day to do this at home too.  We'd love to see anything you make, so why not take a photo and send it to our home learning email address (on our class home page). 


Have you got some Lego at home?  Being as our new topic is 'Toys', this 30 day Lego challenge is perfect!  My children have been enjoying completing them every day too.
