Monday 29th June


Good morning lovely children. I hope that you had a good weekend. 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 doubling.

  • Star words you will need: double, doubling, twice, two times, adding, repeated addition, equal amounts, equal groups, number, amount, ten frame


Day 1: Doubling means adding equal amounts. This is a type of addition called repeated addition where you add the same amount. You count how many objects you have and add the same amount. Draw/print the ten frame below. Choose a number between 1-5. Put that many objects on the left side of the ten frame. Double your objects by putting the same amount of objects on the right side of the ten frame. Remember that you can only put one object in each square. Count all the objects to work out the double. Say it in full sentences. E.g. “Double 2. 2 objects on the left side of the frame. 2 objects on the right side of the frame. There are 4 objects altogether. Double 2 is equal to 4.” Repeat this for a variety of numbers. Challenge: Can you write it as an equation? E.g. 2 + 2 = 4.


Key questions: Can you double an amount? How many objects are on the left side of the ten frame? How many objects are on the right side of the ten frame? How many objects are there altogether? Can you say it in a full sentence?

Phonics: Join in with the video and go over the Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds. Look at the letter(s) and say the sound that they make. Sound out words that have these sounds in e.g. but, off, can. Use your ‘Fred Fingers’ pinching each finger while you say each sound, before blending it together e.g. b-u-t but. Listen to the red words and repeat them. Remember that we can’t sound out red words. Have a go at writing the words.

Literacy: Listen to the story ‘Hansel and Gretel’. Can you think of any actions to go with the words? Ask your adult to explain any words that you don’t understand. Make masks/puppets and role play the story. What do the characters do? What do the characters say?

Hansel and Gretel read aloud

Idea of the day: Make a map to help Hansel and Gretel find their way home from the forest. You could draw the gingerbread house, grass, trees etc. What colours do you need to show each thing? Can you make a key to explain what each bit is? E.g. green = grass.
