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 working on displaying our understanding of the number 10.
Watch the Numbertime video and talk about different ways of representing number 10.
Create a Number 10 gallery with you child, incorporating all of their ideas. I have attached a picture below of a 3 gallery as an example. No answers are wrong if your child can say why they should be included in their gallery; this task is about reasoning and explaining understanding.
Today we are going to be using our ideas for an alternative We're Going on a Bear Hunt and recording our new stories.
Talk to your child about the kind of noises their different obstacles might make and which instruments or objects you have around the house that could make those noises. You could also experiment with voice sounds to represent the different obstacles in your version of the story.
I would love to see some recordings of your child performing their new version of this classic story on Tapestry.
