Writing our numbers correctly is very important. They have to be written in the right direction and neatly. Can you practise writing all of the numbers to 50 in your home learning book, making sure they are the right size and in the right direction?
This is how to form the numbers. Use the 100 square in your pack to help you.
Ask your adult to check your work. Are there any numbers you found difficult? If there was, write them down and they can be the ones you carry on practising.
What can you find out about a T- Rex? Do some research and write facts in your home learning book. Click on the links below to find some websites to help you.

2) Why might having quite a large brain help the T– Rex to hunt better?
3) Find and copy two adjectives (describing words) that describe a T-Rex’s thighs.

We are going to make a musical instrument.
You will need:
- A plastic bottle or a jar. It will need a lid.
- 1 tablespoon of dried rice.
- Clean the bottle or jar and make sure that it is all dry before you start.
- Carefully, pour the rice into the bottle or jar.
- Seal it with the lid.
- Decorate it anyway you like.
- You now have a shaker.
Practise making sound with your new musical instrument.
Can you keep it safe for our next music activity?
