Go through the Number 20

and work out the number problems. Can you make the number on their fingers with a family member? Record different ways of making 20 on paper or a whiteboard. 

Go on a number hunt around your home looking for the number 20. Can you represent the number 20 or make the number 20? Write up all the addition number sentences you can find.

Practise your numbers from 0-20. 

Watch Numberblocks 11-15

What did you notice?

The numbers after 10 have a pattern. The numbers 11-15 all start with a number 1. That tells us that they’re built with the number 10. Look at the 10 number card: Numicon Numbers. This shows us that there’s one 10 and nothing else. Look at the number card 11. This shows us that there’s one 10 and 1 more. Go through the Numicon Numbers from 10-15. 

Can you make the numbers 11-15? You could use cubes or construction. 

Watch Numberblocks 11-15

Look at the Numicon Numbers 10-15. Can you work out which picture goes with which number? How can you tell?

Watch Numberblocks - 16-20.

What do you notice? The numbers follow the same pattern as 11-15. They are all built with the number 10. Look at the number card 16.: Numicon numbers This shows us that there is one 10 and one 6. How can we build this number? Look at the numbers 17-20: Numicon numbers

Make the numbers 16-20 using cubes or construction. Remember that you need to always start with a tower of 10 to build each number.  

Look at the Numicon Numbers 16-20. Can you work out which picture goes with which number? How can you tell?

Listen to the story - Storytime/Read Aloud:  Tadpole's Promise, by Jeanne Willis






Listen to the story and go through the Vocab Slides. Look at the Life Cycle of a Butterfly and the 

Tadpole Lifecycle

Tadpole makes a promise to the Caterpillar.

What would you say to the Caterpillar?

Imagine that you are the caterpillar. Why did you fall in love with the tadpole? Why didn’t you want him to change? How did you feel when he did change?

Go through the Similarities and Differences 

of the different animals. How are they similar? How are they different? 

The caterpillar describes the tadpole as a ‘shiny black pearl’ and the tadpole describes the caterpillar as a ‘beautiful rainbow’. Can you think of other ways of Describing Animals.


Complete the life cycle of a frog or the life cycle of a butterfly.


Complete the Speech bubble writing as the Tadpole. What would you say to the Caterpillar?


Imagine you are Caterpillar and describe how you felt when the Tadpole changed. 


Write a sentence about the animals comparing their similarities and differences. Similarities/Differences Animals.


Choose an animal to describe: Describing Animals.
