Cursive Handwriting



1B Power Maths Book, Pages 70 - 72

If your child needs some extra practice, they can also complete the strengthen challenge. Cut out the numbers/amounts and stick in the correct order. 

If your child is finding it tricky to compare the numbers, they could make each number using tens and ones. This will help them to see which number is greater and which number is smaller. 


We use dienes at school to represent the tens and ones in a number. (See photo below).

You could use anything long to represent the tens at home; pencils, straws, sticks....

 You could use anything small to represent the ones at home; counters, pasta, stones....



You can complete the challenge every week, if you wish, and record your Personal Bests over the term and share your scores with your teacher and class.

If you are lucky enough to own a rope and try to complete a skipping challenge, you have an option to fill in the personal best sheet below.

Task 1

This week we would like you to learn about the four points of the compass. Please watch the video below.

Task 2

Go for a walk with a compass. You could use a compass app on a tablet or phone. As you change direction on your walk, say whether you are walking North, East, South or West.


Choose a location (on your walk or in your garden). Turn to face the North - draw what you can see in front of you.

Repeat for South, East and West, drawing what you can see when facing each direction.


You will need a piece of paper and a pencil to draw what you see in each direction (see example).


Watch the video below.
