The Easter bunny has sent you some challenges this week! He will be watching to see if you are counting accurately and checking your answers!
Can you set up an Easter picnic for 2 of your toys or members of your family? You will need some food/ objects to share between them (an even number e.g. 8 objects/food). How many do your toys have each? Is this fair? Challenge: Repeat with 3/4/5/6 toys and different amounts of objects. Are any objects left over? Is your picnic fair?

a fox in a sun hat
a man in a top hat
a kid in a fun hat

Have a look at your recycling bags at home, what can you put in them? Think about what we recycle at school (straw wrappers and straws). Talk about or research what effect throwing away plastic has on our wildlife e.g. in particular the animals in the sea.
