Practising handwriting.

The children have been practising their

handwriting in this way, starting as large

as possible to clearly practice the appropriate

joins between letters.

 

In the example 'dog' here, you can see that
the letter is given 9 lines to be written
between, 
making sure that the ascenders touch
the top 
line, and the descenders touch the
bottom of 
the ninth line. This allows each
'section' of the 
letter to fill 3 lines. In the next
example there 
are 6 lines for the letter, 2 for
the ascending, 2 
for the descending and 2 for
the middle 
section. This is continued until the
children can write the letter within the spaces of just one line.

All Yours

A card game for 2 or more players

The aim of the game is to get rid of all your cards by practising multiplication.

You will need:

A pack of cards

 

How to play:

1. Deal all the cards between the players. The cards are kept in piles face down. Kings and Queens = 12, Jacks = 11 and aces = 1.

2. Player 1 turns over their top card and places it in the middle of the table. Player 2 turns over their top card and has to multiply the numbers on the 2 cards. If the correct answer is given then the next player turns over their top card and multiplies cards 2 and 3. Play continues around the circle with players taking turns to multiply the last 2 cards played.

3. If a wrong answer is given the group shout "All yours!" and the player has to pick up all the cards in the centre pile.

4.The winner is the first person to get rid of all their cards.
