7th July

Good morning brilliant children and parents!

Let's light a candle and pray together.

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

Our Father who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy name

Thy kingdom come;

Thy will be done, on earth as it its in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive

those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation

but deliver from evil



When the weather is good, we all seem to have more energy and want to do activities outdoors such as walking, running, playing ball games or paddling in water. It is lovely to eat out in the fresh air. Some families enjoy picnics in the park, others like to cook food on a barbacue. It is a great way to spend time with family and friends in the summer.

Today's story is about a family celebration, it is called 'So Much' and was written by Trish Cooke and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.  Listen to the story carefully and try to understand what was the special occasion and how it was celebrated.

So Much by Trish Cooke

Who do we meet at the beginning of the story?

Who are they waiting for?

What do they do with the baby?

What special occasion was it?

What food did mummy prepare for the party?

Why did they want to do those things with the baby?

Was the baby pleased that everyone wanted to play with him?

Have you enjoyed the story? 

Can you retell the story?


Going to the seaside is one of favourite things to do in the summer months. You can walk on a beach, build sandcastles, collect shells, look for sea weeds and sea creatures in the water. Children love paddling in the sea, playing in the waves and swimming. There is so much fun to be had.


MATHS - Comparing 2 groups of objects, - adding one more

You will need: 2 jars or plates, ten coloured bricks and a number line 1-10.

  • Put 2 bricks in one jar and 3 in the other. Ask your child to look at the jars carefully. Which jar has more bricks?  Ask your child to take them out from the first jar, count and find the number card to match. Repeat with the other jar.
  • Put the bricks back in the jar and ask your child to add one more brick to the first jar. How many does it make? Count the bricks and find the right number card. Repeat with the other jar.
  • Take the bricks out and ask your child to make two towers? which one is the taller? How many bricks in each? If you added one more how many would you have?
