    The children have nightmares if the egg is spilt like a spider. I think it would tun into a mega spider. If it was on a wolf it could turn into a werewolf.

    Other words for ‘nice’ could be kind, helpful, pretty and happy.

    My object would be a candle and in my dream I would make fire but be kind. Like making a huge bonfire, campfire and lighting candles for other people. I could make a second sun.

    If the egg falls on something not so pleasant, the children will not have wonderful dreams. They will have bad dreams and be scared.


    I have picked up my remote control car Audi R8, I’m an amazing racing driver and a professional driver racing in the formula 1.

    If I start at 6 and count in 2’s to 20, will I say the number 14? Yes How do you know? Because in 2’s there is even numbers.


    1. A party bag contains 5 sweets. A jar contains 5 party bags. Ron has 75 sweets. How many party bags will he need? 15 How many jars will he need? 3.

    2. Use the number cards to make multiplication and divisions sentences. How many can you make? 2, 20, 5, 10 & 4.

    Ten x Two = Twenty, Ten x Four = Forty, Five x Ten = Twenty five, Five divided by Two = Two.Five, Twenty divided by Ten = Two.
