Week 2

 Maths tasks: Monday Play a board game together so that you can practise your counting and the language of position and direction. Maybe Snakes and Ladders? Tuesday Place an object on the ground and use positional language such as forward, backwards, up, down, left and right to direct an adult to the object. You could switch roles and get your adult to give the directions. If you wanted to make it harder, you could use a blindfold but be extra careful! Wednesday (theme)- Play ‘Catch’ with another person in your household using a ball or anything else that can be thrown safely. Instead of counting in 1s each time the ball is caught, try to only count every second, fifth or tenth catch. This way you will be counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10. Thursday Play this NRICH activity to develop your understanding of positional language. Friday (theme) Each member of the family could have a go at the Long Jump. Measure the length of each jump using a measuring tape and record the lengths. Who jumped the furthest? Who had the shortest jump? What was the difference between the shortest and longest jump?
