Focus Activity - Maths


Note for parents:


Today we will be learning about tens and ones. We want your child to understand that ten ones can be grouped into one ten. They need to practise grouping equipment into tens themselves. It is important that children understand how a number is made up of tens and ones, e.g. 34 = 3 tens and 4 ones.

As children are doing their maths focus activity you can be asking questions such as:

  • How many have we got?
  • How can we make them easier to count?
  • count in tens - how many do we have altogether?
  • How many tens are there?
  • How many ones are there?
  • I have ___ tens and ___ ones. What number does that make?
  • How do we write this number?




Practise grouping objects you can find around the house into groups of ten. You can use anything - toys, straws, lolly sticks, fruit, sweets, pencils, spoons or sticks from the garden. See how much easier it is to count objects when they are grouped into tens.

Peg Activity - Writing


Have a go at making a silly rhymes zig zig book. Choose one of the sea creatures below or one of your own and see how many words you can find that rhyme with it - you can include alien words if you want to.


           fish                     whale                squid                     shark                                         


We have attached a picture of a zigzag book below to show you how to do it.                      

Lolly Activity - Maths

Use the Numicon to make the picture of the fish. You may need to turn the pieces on different angles to get them to fit in the picture. Once you have done it once, can you make it any other way using different pieces? This activity may work best if printed and the pieces of Numicon are cut out. 

Focus Activity - Phonics


During the morning briefing the children will have flicked through the previously taught digraphs, trigraphs and tricky words. 


Using the sheet below, sound out the pictures, write the word and colour in the picture if they have the oi sound in. Remember if the 'oi' sound is at the end we usually use the 'oy' grapheme. Remember to use the 'Does it look right?' strategy to help. 

Focus Activity - Tricky Word


We are going to have a go at practising some of our tricky words. We are going to give you a word a day to practise. Today your tricky word is mind.


Choose one of the options, or anything you can find at home, and write the tricky word for today using that resource. See how many times you can write the word in a minute! Then choose 3 more resources and rewrite mind using;


  1. Rainbow writing
  2. Sand, flour, rice
  3. Paint
  4. Water
  5. Mud
  6. Chalk
  7. Glitter
