Wed 1st July

Wednesday 1st July


Good morning fantastic children. What is the date today? It is the start of another new month. Can you sing ‘The Months of the Year’ song to work out what it is? 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 3: 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 butterfly with a line down the middle. Choose a number between 1-10. Draw that many dots on the left side of the butterfly. Double your dots by putting the same amount of dots on the right side of the butterfly. Count all the dots to work out the double. Say it in full sentences. E.g. “Double 7. 7 dots on the left side of the butterfly. 7 dots on the right side of the butterfly. There are 14 dots altogether. Double 7 is equal to 14.” 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 butterfly? How many dots are on the right side of the butterfly? How many dots are there altogether? Can you say it in a full sentence?

Phonics: Join in with the video and learn the Set 3 sound aw. Look at the letters and say the sound that they make. Have a go at sounding out words that have these sounds in e.g. yawn, dawn, jaw. Use your ‘Fred Fingers’ pinching each finger while you say each sound, before blending it together e.g. y-aw-n yawn. Have a go at writing these words.

Literacy: Choose and draw a character from the story ‘Hansel and Gretel’- Hansel or Gretel. What does the character say? Can you draw a speech bubble? Write sentences to show what the character might be saying e.g. “The oven will not light. Take that you nasty witch!” Remember to use your ‘Fred Fingers’ when sounding out your words.


R.E.: Our topic is called ‘Our World’. God created the world. Look at the picture below and talk about what you can see in the picture. God said “Indeed it is very good!”



Key questions:

  • What is good?
  • Why do you think God said this?
  • Why do you think the world is very good?
  • What could we do to make it even better?


Look at the next picture, below.



Key questions:

  • What do you think “Everyone shares God’s world” means?
  • What can we do to help each other share God’s world?


Can you think of a time when you shared something? Draw a picture of what you shared and who you shared it with. You could write a sentence to explain what you did.


Idea of the day: Make delicious Hansel and Gretel treats. Ask an adult to supervise you cooking. Melt 100g chocolate over a low heat/in the microwave. Spoon a tablespoon onto baking paper/foil. Decorate them with sweets! Put them in the fridge to set.
