Friday 5th June


Good morning brilliant children. What is the date today? I have taken a picture of our board. Remember to use a full sentence!



Daily Prayer: Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is 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 us from evil. Amen.


Maths: This week we will be learning about counting and ordering numbers.

  • Star words you will need: count, order, numbers, numeral (written number), quantity, amount, object, number line, number square


Day 5: Make a number square with numbers from 1-20. Use the pictures below to have a look at a number square. Draw squares on a piece of paper. Write the numerals from 1-20. Choose a number on your number square. Count out that many objects. Repeat this for a variety of numbers.


Key questions: Can you make a number square? What do you notice about the numbers? Can you say how many objects you have in a full sentence? Can you put the objects in a line? Can you say one number for each object that you touch? Can you extend your number square above 20?

Number Squares

Phonics: Join in with the video and spell words with the Set 2 sound or. Say the word out loud. Have a go at sounding it out to work out how many sounds are in the word e.g. s-or-t sort (3 sounds). Hold up that many ‘Fred Fingers’. Say the word. Sound it out and ‘pinch’ your fingers with each sound. Write the word. Underline the ‘special friend’ ‘or’. Check your sounds with me.

RWI Set 2 spelling or

Literacy: Use your story map to re-tell the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. What happens in the story? Write sentences to retell the end of the story when Little Red Riding Hood finds the Big Bad Wolf in her Granny’s bed. Can you write the repeated refrains? E.g. “Why granny, what big ears you have. All the better to hear you with.” Remember to use your ‘Fred Fingers’ when sounding out your words. Ask your adult to write the red words ‘you’ and ‘to’ on a piece of paper to help you. Challenge: Can you write the beginning, middle and end of the story?


Idea of the day: Enjoy the song ‘Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf’. What is the same about ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘The Three Little Pigs’? What is different about the two traditional tales?


Bonus idea: ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ experiment! Little Red Riding Hood wears a cape. What do you think it might be made from? Little Red Riding Hood wants to go and visit her grandma again but it is raining. She needs a new cape that will keep her warm and dry. Can you help her by exploring the best material to use? Look at different materials that you have in your home e.g. tinfoil, plastic bag, paper towel. Which would be best to use? Why? Test out your ideas by covering a doll/object with the material and sprinkling on some water.


Key questions:

  • How does your coat keep you dry?
  • Which materials are you going to test?
  • Which material worked well? Which material didn’t work well?


I hope that you have a lovely weekend. Get some fresh air if you are able to and have a rest from school activities. I will speak to you again on Monday. I am thinking of you.
