Reception children were challenged to do money in their maths lessons. We were using different coins and working out the value of the items in the shop. Can you practise at home making 5p or 10 p or 20p using different coins? For example, 5 p = 2p add 2p add 1p.
We practised switching the computers on and logging on. Then we practised drawing pictures of butterflies using 2 simple 2 paint. We used cap lock for typing our name with a capital letter and used a space bar on the keyboard to make a finger space.
