Check out the following website to help with reading and phonics.


This is the RWI website - the books the children read in school and at home.






  1. Re-listen to the story ‘The Little Red Hen’.
  2. Print/draw the main events from the story.
  3. Cut them out and mix them up.
  4. Can you put them in order?
  5. What happens first? What happens next? What happens last?
  6. You could stick them on a piece of paper.



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, part-part-whole model
  1. Halving means sharing into two equal groups.
  2. We are dividing the whole into two equal parts.
  3. Half means one of two equal parts. Two halves make a whole.
  4. Look at the picture of the part-part-whole model for an example.
  5. Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. pens, toys.
  6. Put the 20 objects into the whole section. 20 is the whole.
  7. Share your 20 objects into two equal parts.
  8. Move one object at a time. Move one object into one of the parts. Move the next object into the other part.
  9. Repeat until you have shared all of your objects.
  10. How many objects are in each part? Count each part.
  11. What does halving mean?
  12. Explain what you are doing in full sentences. E.g. “The whole is 20. I shared 20 objects into two equal parts. There are 10 objects in this part and 10 objects in this part. Two parts make the whole.”
  13. Repeat for a variety of amounts/numbers (2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20)
    Key questions: Can you show half using a part-part-whole model? Can you share the objects into two equal parts? Can you share all amounts equally? What is halving?



Make a model windmill using cardboard boxes. Talk about the colours and shapes used.
