Number of the Week
This week, we are thinking about the number
Can you count to 6?
Can you show your grown-up 6 fingers?
Can you make groups of 6 objects?- toys, sweets, spoons, books etc...
Look out for number 6's around your house or when you are out on a walk.
Can you help Curious George to play a game of Hide and Seek with his animal friends?

This week's rhyme is
5 Currant Buns
I think that tiger in this week's story ate quite a lot of buns at Sophie's house!!
Click on the picture below to listen to the rhyme.
Perhaps you could make some buns from playdough- ask your grown-up to give you five pennies, and you can practise buying your buns from the shop.
This week, we are thinking about objects that are big...
and objects that are small.
Have a look around your house.
Can you find some objects around your house that are big and small?
Now collect together some of your toys,
Can you put them in a line starting with the biggest and ending with the smallest?
Grown-ups!- ask your child questions like,
Which is the biggest/smallest?
What is bigger/ smaller than the red car?
Can you find something bigger than the blue teddy?
Shape of the Week
This week's shape is a rectangle.
Look closely- can you see it has two long sides and two short sides...and four corners!
Lots of things we can see around us are rectangle shapes.
Look around you, indoors and outdoors.
How many things can you spot that are shaped like a rectangle?
Can you have a go at drawing a rectangle using top to bottom vertical lines, and right to left horizontal lines?
You could add some other shapes to your rectangle to make a picture.
