**►Reading **

Please read with your child for 20 minutes each day. This could be a story book which you read, a phonics book which they read or a mixture of the two.

Oxford Owl have a library of free books which can be read on a phone or tablet.

Follow the link below and sign up yourself. You can then access a variety of books which are age-appropriate. Start on age 3-4 (Oxford Level 1) and work your way through as your child gets more confident.

Today we are going to learn a song about the different ways to make 10 (/number bonds to 10.)

Please watch the video below and then practise the song with your child, using your own toys or blocks to make your own representation of the song.

Please send me a recording of your child singing the song with their own toys to demonstrate.

**►Topic**

Today we are going to be following simple maps. Tell your child you are going to go for a walk and ask where they want to go.

Create a simple map like the one I have drawn below that shows your house and your destination (if may be helpful to use Google maps or similar if you are unsure) with your child. Then go for your walk together, following your map as you go. On your way home, talk about having to go in the opposite direction.

When you get home, talk about how accurate your map was and make any changes that may be required.
