Introduce a domino. How many spots are on one side? Can we see without counting?  Repeat for the other side of the domino. Explain that we need to know how many spots there are altogether. Model counting all of the spots.

Complete domino worksheet. Count the spots on one half of the domino and put in one small circle of the part part whole. Repeat for the other half of the domino. Count how many spots there are altogether and put it in the large circle. You can then make some of your own.

PSED – Setting a goal

Ask your child to think of something they currently find difficult and is a challenge for them. Ask them to have a go at writing this goal down on a piece of paper (grown-ups help where needed) and place this somewhere safe to come back to in a few weeks.

 

What have they found difficult? What do they think they need to do in order to achieve this goal? Do they need any help and support along the way?

Invite your child to join in with the calm me time. (Read the following script and encourage your child to breathe along)
“Now take a big deep breath in through your nose and puff out your rainbow breath through your mouth. Imagine you are blowing the fluffy clouds along as they drift through the sky. Feel your tummies go up and down as you breathe. Feel calm, peaceful and safe. So breathe in a big and gentle breath through your nose while I count to 3,  1...2...3... and gently breathe out your rainbow breath through your mouth 1…2…3…4... Can you imagine the colours of your rainbow breath? Let’s try that again and I will count while you breathe lovely gentle deep breaths in 1…2…3… and out through your mouth 1…2…3…4… Blow the clouds along gently. Feel your tummies get bigger and smaller as they breathe in and out, like a balloon blowing up and then going down. Practise as many times as the children can manage. When we breathe in, we feel strong and kind. When we breathe out we feel gentle and calm. When we breathe in, we feel strong and kind. When we breathe out, we feel gentle and calm.”

Outdoor play

Cloud watching

Go outside and look up at the clouds in the sky. What do they look like? Do any look like an animal, an object? Are they moving slowly or quickly?
