Monday:

This week we are going to be learning all about **odd** and **even** numbers.

Have you heard these words before? Do you know what they mean?

An **odd number** means you **can not** slit it (halve it) equally into 2.

An **even number** means you **can** split the amount equally into 2.

**Remember, it is equal if they both have the same amount. **

Now let's watch the number blocks video to learn more about odd and even numbers:

Tuesday:

We are going to learn about odd and even numbers through a teddy bear's picnic today!

You will need 2 teddy bears, 2 plates and 20 things to count with.

Can you have a think about what you could use to count with?

Start with 1 item, can you share it equally between the 2 bears?

Is the number 1 an odd or even number?

What about 2 items?

Can these be shared equally between the 2 bears?

Wednesday:

Today we are going to look at The Story of Ollie Odd and Ella Even, can you help them with their shopping items?

Thursday:

Now we are getting to know our odd and even numbers we are going to add different numbers together to see if it makes an **odd** or **even** number.

First, lets do an **even number + even number = ?**

**For example 2 + 2 = 4. **

The number 4 is an **even number,** so the rule must be **even + even = even!**

Can you add two different even numbers together to check the rule is correct?

Next, lets try** odd number + odd number = ? **

**For example 1 + 5 = 6.**

The number 6 is an **even number, **so the rule must be **odd + odd = even!**

Can you add two different odd numbers together to check the rule is correct?

Finally, lets try **odd number + even number = ?**

**For example 3 + 4 = 7**

The number 7 is an **odd number, **so the rule must be **odd + even = odd!**

Can you add a different odd number with an even number to check the rule is correct?

Friday:

Today we are going to play a game! Read what it says at the top of the game to know if you are looking for **odd** or **even** numbers!

**Remember:** Odd numbers end in 1,3,5,7 and 9.

Even numbers end in 0,2,4,6 and 8.
