This week, White Rose Maths Home Learning is based on one of our favourite books, Supertato! Why not check out the activities each day?

Take a look at what we will be learning.

What are we doing in school today?

After reading ‘The Little Red Hen’ we wanted to bake some bread but there was no flour available. So, we made toast, enjoying it with butter and jam. It was the first time some of us had made our own toast.
