Reception home learning Wednesday 1st April

Children it is Wednesday! By lunchtime we will be half way through the week! It has been so lovely to see the work you have all been doing on Tapestry, it seems like lots of you are enjoying yourselves while working hard – fantastic!


Can you answer these addition questions?

a. 3 add 3 is
b. 7 add 4 is
c. 12 add 3 is
d. 4 add 4 is
e. 9 add 6 is

What do you notice about questions a and d?


Watch the video of the Bog Baby story here…
