Each week, take a look at the PowerPoint provided, there is no video or worksheets, but work through the tasks together. Try to work in as practical a way as possible. Enjoy!

Represent numbers to 100 Activities

Can you find different ways to make numbers up to 100?

Grab a dice and roll it twice!

The first roll is your tens. The second roll is your ones.

So if Mr Wignall rolls a 3 and then rolls a 5. What number does he have?


Once you have your number discuss it with your child. Grab some spaghetti and macaroni as your tens and ones. Or maybe use straws and pennies. It’s up to you but you need to try and recreate the number 35 in as many ways as possible!

Thirty five          35                 


Maybe you can try and make 35 pence too with different coins.

Pick a different number everyday and make it in different way.

Try these worksheets to help you out and have fun!

I can tell others about things that happened when I was little.


Talk to a grown up about something that has happened to you in the past! Try and go as far back as you can remember! What happened? Was it special? Talk to your grown up about the past, present and future! Can you write down any words or phrases you use when talking about the past? For example,

A long time ago, Mr Wignall had lots of long fluffy hair!”


I know that some objects belong to people of the past.

Have a look at the powerpoint with your grown up. Can you believe some of the things your mums and dads used when they were young? Maybe your grandparents might recognise more instead? Hee hee.


We have so many new modern things now around our house but they do the same jobs we have always needed doing. How has having a wash changed? How has listening to music changed? It is amazing how different things are. What about in another 100 years’ time?  Maybe you can think of an invention that people can use in the future?

Match the modern and past items on the worksheet and label them.
