Tues 30th June

Tuesday 30th June


Good morning amazing 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 doubling.

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


Day 2: 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 a ladybird with a line down the middle. Choose a number between 1-10. Draw that many dots on the left side of the ladybird. Double your dots by putting the same amount of dots on the right side of the ladybird. Count all the dots to work out the double. Say it in full sentences. E.g. “Double 5. 5 dots on the left side of the ladybird. 5 dots on the right side of the ladybird. There are 10 dots altogether. Double 5 is equal to 10.” Repeat this for a variety of numbers. Challenge: Can you write it as an equation? E.g. 5 + 5 = 10.


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

Ladybird Outline to Draw/Print

Phonics: Join in with the video and spell words with the Set 3 sound u-e. Say the word out loud. Have a go at sounding it out to work out how many sounds are in the word e.g. b-r-u-t(e) brute (4 sounds). Hold up that many ‘Fred Fingers’. Say the word. Sound it out and ‘pinch’ your fingers with each sound. Write the word. Show the ‘special friend’ ‘u-e’. Check your sounds with me.

RWI Set 3 spelling u-e

Literacy: Choose and draw a character from the story ‘Hansel and Gretel’- for example the stepmother or the witch. Think of adjectives (describing words) to describe them e.g. wicked, nasty, unkind. Can you label your character with these words? Remember to use your ‘Fred Fingers’ when sounding out your words.


Idea of the day: Make the gingerbread house! You could use paper or junk modelling. You could draw different coloured ‘sweets’ to stick on. What materials will you need? How are you going to make it?
