Good morning brilliant children and parents!


Let's light the candle and pray together:

In the name of the father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:

God, our Father

we have come to say 

Thank you for your love today.

Thank you for my family, 

and all the friends you give to me.

Guard in the dark of night

and in the morning

send your light.


Topic - Underwater

I hope you enjoyed learning about various underwater creatures yesterday. Today we are going to concentrate on a particular creature - the shark, the scariest monster in the ocean. 

Listen to the story and decide for yourself if this shark is very scary. Today's story is 'Smiley Shark' by Truth Galloway.

Smiley Shark

What was special about this shark?

Did other creatures want to play with him?

How did he feel about it?

What happened one day?

How did he help other creatures?

Did he find friends?

Does this story remind you of another one?

Is it similar to the 'Rainbow Fish'?

Is it important to have friends?


Here is a shark song called  'Baby Shark's Dance.

Maths - Pose problems such as 'how many will there be when ...?'


 You will need: a large piece of card, some felt-tips, lots of cars and other vehicles.

  • Draw a car park on the card. Draw the lines, to make at least six car parking spaces. Make sure you draw in the arrows to show which way the cars should drive.
  • Ask your child to play driving some cars in and parking them.
  • How many cars are parked?
  • How many if another comes in to park?
  • How many cars if one car drives out?
  • How many parking spaces are there?
  • How many if we draw one more?
  • ​​​​​​​How many parking tickets would you need for your cars?
