A good choice Beech Class, this is one of my favourites!

So, let’s read the Gingerbread Man.

Listen out for the fairy tale language and can you join in with the repeated lines?


Can you create a story map to show the order of events in the story? Use pictures and add words e.g. cat, dog, fox, boy, girl etc.

These are different animals to our story so complete the map using the events in our story but it helps to see what I mean.


Maths – Place Value.

This week we will be looking at place value.

In maths, every digit in a number has a place valuePlace value can be defined as the value represented by a digit in a number.

For the children, how many tens and ones are in a number. e.g. 63 has 6 tens and 3 ones.

Go through this pdf with your children. Remember to count the tens first then the ones.

Set the numbers your child can do up to 99 but not beyond.
