Today we are going to be finding third of amounts and numbers. This will build on the work children did yesterday. Follow the link below and look for the work, answers and video under lesson 2.
Today we are going to carry on writing our own version of 'A Squash and a Squeeze'. Carry on from where you left off yesterday. Today we are going to write about the next two animals coming into the house.If you are not sure, use the version I have written below.
"Take in your calf," said the wise young lady.
"Take in my calf? What a curious plan!" Well the calf chased the monkey and knocked over the jug then raided the larder and ate food on the rug. The little old man cried, "Glory be! It was tiny for two now it's titchy for three. The calf eaten my diner and the monkey's got fleas! My house is a squash and a squeeze!" Then she said, "Wise young lady, won't you help me please? My house is a squash and a squeeze!"
"Take in your sheep," said the wise young lady.
"Take in my sheep? What a curious plan!" Well the sheep trod mud all through the house and sat to nibble the table leg. The little old man cried, "Stop I implore! It was titch for three now it's teeny for four! Even the monkey with the bananas agrees my house is a squash and a squeeze" Then she said, "Wise young lady, won't you help me please? My house is a squash and a squeeze!"

'Now we are six' by A. A. Milne
When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six now
for ever and ever.
