Morning children and parents!
Children’s daily work (can be altered to suit your home and family life):
Morning Prayer – Hail Mary
Thank you Lord for this new day in my school/home to work and play.
Please be with me all day long, in every story, game, and song. May all the happy things we do, make you our Father happy to.
What day was yesterday?
What day is it?
What day will it be tomorrow?
What month is it?
What date is it?
What is the weather like?
What is the season?
Practise saying the sounds everyday with your child

Remember: sound out each word, finger space between each word, write letters on the line and full stop at the end.
Parents can write tricky words and children can copy the words to help write the sentences.
This week we will be learning about doubling.
Key questions: Can you double an amount? How many objects are in the left group? How many objects are in the right group? How many objects are there altogether? Can you say it in a full sentence?
Draw a picture of the cottage of sweets in the middle of the forest.
Think carefully about the different sweets that could be used for the roof, the windows, the door and the path. Add your favourite sweets to the picture.
Think about a range of different materials you could use to complete the picture.
You could use crayons, felt-tip pens, paint or collage materials.
1. Build a house using sweets or use junk modelling materials and make it look like sweets. Think about how you can attach the different sweets to each other, how you can make them balance and whether the house can stand without support.
2. There would have been lots of different animals living in the forest where the witch’s house was. Use the Internet to research different animals that live in forests. Write down the names or draw some of the animals you discover.
3. In some of the versions of the story, Hansel and Gretel dropped crumbs or pebbles on the ground to help them find their way home. Can you draw a map of your journey from home to a special place? It could be your school, a friend’s house or the park.
Enjoy the weekend with family!
