Read and order number cards together.

Rabbits and Mice - order numbers to 10

Squirrels and Hedgehogs - order numbers to 20. Then close eyes and your grown up can turn one over and hide one. What is missing?

Owls and Foxes - start by ordering numbers to 20. Then close eyes and your grown up can turn one/two over and hide them. What is missing? Then select some of the numbers to put in 5, 2, 18, 12, 10

Be a mini beast detective! If you go out into the garden or go for a walk look out for any mini beasts. You might see a butterfly! Then in your book draw 2 big leaves. Name the mini beasts together on the sheet and talk about if they have legs or no legs.

On one leaf draw the mini beasts with legs and on the other leaf draw the mini beasts with no legs. 

Rabbits, Mice and Squirrels -  write mini beast names next to them.

Foxes, Owls and Hedgehogs - write mini beast names next to them and then choose 1,2,or 3 of the mini beast to write about.
