Tuesday 7th July


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 halving.

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


Day 2: 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 apple for an example. Get a piece of fruit or use the pictures below. Can you cut the fruit in half? Can you cut the fruit into two equal parts? What does halving mean? Explain what you are doing in full sentences. E.g. “I have a piece of fruit. This is the whole. I cut the fruit in half. Now I have two equal parts. Two parts make the whole.”


Key questions: Can you cut the fruit in half? Can you cut the fruit 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 ‘Hold a Sentence’ video. Read and say the sentence out loud. Have a go at writing the sentence. Have a go at working out how many sounds are in each word e.g. p-i-n pin (3 sounds). Hold up that many ‘Fred Fingers’. Sound it out and ‘pinch’ your fingers with each sound. Write the word. Any red words that you need will be on my board. Remember to put a capital letter at the start of your sentence and a full stop at the end of your sentence. Remember to use ‘finger spaces’ between each word. Check your sentence with me.

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

Idea of the day: Put some flour into a baking tray. Use your finger to make patterns, shapes and pictures. You could write letters and words. Can you make some small movements in the flour? Can you make some big movements in the flour?
