This week, we will be continuing our 'Rumble in the Jungle' theme by exploring the text 'The Parrot Tico Tango' by Anna Witte. This rhyming, musical story is all about a rather greedy parrot who learns an important lesson about sharing. It allows us to explore tango music, tropical fruits and the importance of sharing with our friends.

This week we will be continuing our learning about subtraction. We will be taking last week's practical activities and learning how to record these as written calculations which we call 'number sentences' e.g. 5 - 2 = 3. Below are some more subtraction activity ideas that you could try at home but this week, build on last weeks learning by focusing on recording the written calculations that you make by playing these games.
- Use up to 10 building bricks to build a tower. How many bricks are in your tower? Take 2 of the bricks away. How many bricks are left? Can you tell a grown-up what you did?
- Make some playdough with a grown-up. Roll 8 balls of playdough. Use your hand to squash 1 of the balls of dough. How many balls are left?
- Draw 5 fish and then cut them out. Count them on to a piece of blue paper. If 2 fish swim away, how many are left? Move the pictures to help you count. Can you ask a grown-up a question about the 5 fish? How many swim away this time? Can you check their answer?

What can you make using tropical fruits? Find out about some different fruits that grow in the jungle and see which tropical fruits you can find in the supermarket. Have a go at making your own 'tropical treat' using the fruits you find e.g. a tropical drink, a fruit salad, a fruit kebab. Take some photos of what you make and let us know what you thought of your treat. You could even write me a recipe to try and make myself.
Let us know what you get up to on Tapestry. We love to see!
