Reception Home Learning: Wednesday 1st April 2020

Good morning, Reception!
Let’s start our learning with finding out what the date is. It’s the first day of a new month…………..

Click on the song below to hear all of the months of the year in order, from January to December.

How many months are there ? January was the first month of the year, March is the third and December is the last, but what is April ? Say the names of months – how many can you remember ?
Mrs McCutcheon’s bug hunt inspired me to go out into the garden, this is what I found:

Write a number sentence to show this.
You’ll need to use + and = in your number sentence.
