KS1 My favourite number is 12. Some of the things I know about the number twelve is that it is a 2 digit number, it is double 6, it has one ten and two ones, it is one more than 11 and one less than 13. I also know that 10 + 2 = 12 and 20 - 8 = 12

Your challenge is to choose your favourite number and write down everything you know about that number.

Can you think of another piece of Maths Magic or find any patterns in Maths? If you create any, feel free to email them to ks2homelearning.coxhoe@durhamlearning.net.

PSHE

The daily recommended amount of fluids is

1 litre (5 glasses)  for 5 to 8 year olds

1.5 litres (7glasses) for 9 to 12 years old

Water and milk are the very best things we can drink to keep our bodies healthy.

If you have a measuring jug why don't you record how much healthy liquid you consume each day? 

Challenge: We all know it is so important to wash our hands regularly. We must wash our hands if we have been outside, if we sneeze into them or blow our nose, before we eat, after we have been to the toilet. We need to  wash our hands with  soap for at least twenty seconds. Lots of people have used the Happy Birthday song to time the 20 seconds. Can you come up with a new twenty second hand washing song? 

Singing and dancing are a brilliant way to keep our spirits up. Why not sing along to Naomi's PSHE Supermover Believe!

Science

A few weeks ago, the children of Coxhoe Primary School celebrated British Science Week. One of their tasks was to record a science journal which encouraged them to spot the science in everything around them. The children quickly became aware that science was everywhere, including inside their homes and gardens.

This week's science challenge is for the children to create their own home science journal. See if the children can list the science they see around them within their homes and gardens each day. What does is look like? Where did they see it? What type of science is it? Clicking on this link will download a template you could use, or you could even design your own. 

Here are some useful links to fun science activities that can be tried at home:
