Monday 6th July


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 halving.

  • Star words you will need: half, halving, parts, whole, part-part-whole model, objects, shape, amount, sharing, divide, equal, groups, fraction


Day 1: Halving means sharing into two equal groups. We are dividing the whole into two equal parts. Half means one of two equal parts. Two halves make a whole. Look at the picture of the pizza for an example. Get a slice of bread or use the picture below. Can you cut the bread in half? Can you cut the bread into two equal parts? What does halving mean? Explain what you are doing in full sentences. E.g. “I have a slice of bread. This is the whole. I cut the bread in half. Now I have two equal parts. Two parts make the whole.”


Key questions: Can you cut the bread in half? Can you cut the bread into two equal parts? Where do you need to cut it? Is there another way you could cut it? What is halving?

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. get, him, from. Use your ‘Fred Fingers’ pinching each finger while you say each sound, before blending it together e.g. g-e-t get. 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 ‘The Little Red Hen’. Listen out for any ‘repeated refrains’ (phrases said again and again). 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?

Idea of the day: Make a windmill for the Little Red Hen. A windmill grinds grain into flour. Use objects from your home to build it. You could use junk modelling, Lego, Duplo etc. Take a picture of your creation.
