Using Adjectives

I am learning to use adjectives to describe nouns.

I know I can do it when I can choose interesting adjectives to describe nouns.

Yesterday you became weather investigators, today you are going to have a go at becoming weather reporters!

Independent Task

Imagine that you are a weather reporter on the nightly news!

Using the adjectives that you came up with to describe the weather yesterday, you can make an oral weather report to your family.

You may like to write out a paragraph to explain the weather and rehearse before presenting to your family. You could even film it and send it to your teacher.

Making 10

I am learning to use number facts to add up to 10.

I know I can do it when I can add numbers to make 10.

Today you will be using the ‘Friends of Ten’ to add numbers up to 10. Watch the song below to learn more about the Friends of Ten. ↓↓↓

Independent Task

For today’s activity, you will need a deck of playing cards.

How to play:

First you will need to remove all of the picture cards (King, Queen, Jack and Joker), you will also need to remove the 10s.

To start, lay out 7 playing cards in a line face up to see the numbers. (see example below) ↓↓↓

Remove any pairs of cards that add together to make 10. Move those to the side and replace the missing cards with others from the deck. (see picture below) ↓↓↓

Continue removing any pairs that add together to make 10. If you can’t find any pairs from the 7 cards, replace them with another 7.

Keep playing until you can’t make anymore pairs.


If you want to challenge yourself, put the picture cards and the 10s back into the deck.

Jack = 11, Queen =12, King =13, Joker = 14.

Remove cards if they add up to 20 instead of 10. You can use more than 2 cards at a time.

For example: Jack + 5 + 4 = 20 OR 3 + 9 + 8 = 20 ↓↓↓
