Welcome to Friday

 Click on me for todays welcome message. Watch out for the biscuits!


Can you count in two’s? We’re going to practise today. Watch the video first.


Then answer as many of the questions as you can. Look at picture carefully, how many two’s can you see? How many objects altoghter? But, don’t be caught out!  0 x 2 = mmmmmmm nothing 0 x 2 = 0 because there are no two’s.


Try solving the problems on the Friday Maths 2x problem solving in the files at the bottom of this page.   Send me your responses on the maths link on Seesaw, please.


Watch ‘The Queen’s Hat’ again. Have you visited any of the places in the story?

Use the powerpoint 'Friday The Queen's Hat Paragraph',to guide your writing today. It starts with a video from me, to support your writing. Pause the video at any point. You are going to write a paragraph to retell the story. I look forward to reading all of your stories when you send them via Seesaw. Neat Excalibur handwriting please.
