Wednesday 17th June


Good morning fantastic 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 addition.

  • Star words you will need: add, addition, is equal to, equation, number, object, number bond, ten frame, part, whole, part-part-whole model


Day 3: Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. pens, toys. 20 is the whole (how many there are altogether). Separate your 20 objects into two groups. These two groups are called parts. How many objects are in each part? Count each part. What is the whole? Count the whole (how many objects there are altogether). You could write the numbers down. How many ways can you make 20? E.g. 12 objects in one group and 8 objects in the other group. Say it in a full sentence e.g. “I have 12 objects in this part and 8 objects in this part. 12 and 8 makes 20. 12 add 8 is equal to 20.” Can you write it as an equation? E.g. “12 + 8 = 20”.


Key questions: Can you show number bonds to 20 using objects? How many different ways can you make 20? Can you say the equation in a full sentence? Can you write an equation?


Phonics: Join in with the video and spell words with the Set 3 sound oi. Say the word out loud. Have a go at sounding it out to work out how many sounds are in the word e.g. j-oi-n join (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’ ‘oi’. Check your sounds with me.

RWI Set 3 spelling oi

Literacy: Make an invitation to the ‘Prince’s Ball’ to let everyone know that they are invited. Draw the palace on one side. Write key information about the ball on the other side. When is the ball? Where is the ball? Who is invited? Remember to use your ‘Fred Fingers’ when sounding out your words.


R.E.: We are coming to the end our topic ‘Friends’. Jesus had good friends and he teaches us about friendship. Reflect about what you have learnt. You could sit beside a candle or listen to some music.


Key questions:

  • How do friends make us feel happy?
  • What breaks and mends friendships?
  • How is Jesus our friend?


Remember that it is good to have friends. Jesus teaches us about being friends. Jesus shared his new rule for friends with us. We can change and say sorry and forgive each other. Jesus said we must love one another.


Draw a picture of lots of different people. Can you draw: friends, family, people you know, people you don’t know, people that look like you, people that don’t look like you? Can you write Jesus’ message ‘love one another’ on your paper? You could put it in your window to share with others.


We can try and show friendship and forgiveness every day. How could you do this today?


Idea of the day: Make fairy cakes for dessert for the Prince’s Ball. Ask your adult to supervise you baking. Turn the oven to 180C. Put 100g of caster sugar and 100g butter in a bowl and mix them together. Use a sieve to sift 100g self-raising flour. Mix in two eggs. Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases. Cook them in the oven for 20 minutes. When they are cool you could decorate them with icing. How could you measure the quantities? What is your dessert for the ball called?
