Wed 10th June

Wednesday 10th June


Good morning fantastic children. I hope you had a nice Zoom class chat yesterday. 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 one more and one less.

  • Star words you will need: one more, one less, add, subtract, take away, count, number, object, number line


Day 3: Today we will be focusing on: one less. Collect 20 items of the same object from your home e.g. pencils, toys. Choose a number card from 0-20. Count out that many objects. Show one less than the number by taking away one object. Count how many objects you have now. Say how many objects you have e.g. “I started with 15. I took one away. Now I have 14. One less than 15 is 14.” Repeat this for a variety of numbers. Please keep the objects for the weeks learning.


Key questions: Can you show one less than a number using objects? Can you say one less than a number in a full sentence?


Phonics: Join in with the video and spell words with the Set 2 sound ir. Say the word out loud. Have a go at sounding it out to work out how many sounds are in the word e.g. g-ir-l girl (3 sounds). Hold up that many ‘Fred Fingers’. Say the word. Sound it out and ‘pinch’ your fingers with each sound. Write the word. Underline the ‘special friend’ ‘ir’. Check your sounds with me.

Literacy: Make a ‘Wanted Poster’ to help find the Troll. Draw the troll from the story ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. Think of adjectives (describing words) to describe him e.g. huge, scary, smelly. Can you label your character with these words? Write sentences to describe the character. Remember to use your ‘Fred Fingers’ when sounding out your words.


R.E.: Our topic is called ‘Friends’. Look at the picture (based on John 13: 34-35). Share the story about Jesus’ rule and talk about it. Sometimes things can make you and others unhappy. It is important to talk about these things and say sorry. We can forgive each other so we can mend broken friendships.

Key questions:

  • What is Jesus’ rule?
  • What will happen when you are all happy together?
  • Why do you like your friends?
  • What makes a good friend?
  • What can help to mend a friendship?


Make a friendship card to give to a friend. You could draw a picture and write a message to a friend e.g. “You are a special friend to me. I like playing games with you. I am sorry for when I made you feel sad. Thank you for being my friend.”


Look out for someone in your family or yourself showing the qualities of friendship and praise them. Look out for when things go wrong to discuss how they feel and how you can make up as friends.

Jesus' Rule (John 13: 34-35)

Idea of the day: make a concoction for the Troll to eat/drink! Collect objects from outside e.g. mud, sticks, leaves. Use a container in the sink or put a towel over a table. Mix your objects into water. How much of each ‘object’ do you need? How could you measure the quantities? What is your feast for the troll called? Is it nice or nasty?
