Wed 24th June

Wednesday 24th 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 subtraction.

  • Star words you will need: take away, subtract, subtraction, is equal to, equation, number, object, part, whole, part-part-whole model


Day 3: Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. buttons, paperclips. Choose a number between 0-20. Take away that many objects. How many objects are left? You could write the numbers down. E.g. 20 objects to start. Take away 4 and 16 are left. Say it in a full sentence e.g. “I started with 20 objects. I took away 4 objects and 16 objects are left. 20 take away 4 is 16. 20 subtract 4 is equal to 16.” Can you write it as an equation? E.g. “20 - 4 = 16”. Repeat this for a variety of numbers.


Key questions: Can you use objects to show subtraction from 20? How many different numbers can you subtract from 20? Can you say the equation in a full sentence? Can you write an equation?


Phonics: Join in with the video and learn the Set 3 sound o-e. 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. home, hope, note. Use your ‘Fred Fingers’ pinching each finger while you say each sound, before blending it together e.g. h-o-m(e) home. Have a go at writing these words.

RWI Set 3 sounds o-e

Literacy: Draw a sad Colour Monster. Do you think that sadness should be blue? Why? Why not? Draw things that might make the Colour Monster feel sad. What makes you feel sad? Add these things to your picture. Can you label your drawings? Remember to use your ‘Fred Fingers’ when sounding out your words. What can you do to help when you feel sad? You could talk to someone and do something that you enjoy to help you feel better.


R.E.: Our new topic is called ‘Our World’. Christians believe that life is God’s gift. All that makes up life – people, the Earth, places, things – are part of that gift. We should appreciate everything in this world and look after our wonderful world. Ask your adult to read you the story below (Book of Genesis: Chapter 1- Children’s Version).

In the beginning there was no earth or sky or sea or animals. And then God spoke in the darkness: "Let there be light!" And right away there was light..."That's good!" said God. "From now on, when it's dark it will be 'night' and when it's light, it will be 'day'."

The evening came and the night passed and then the light returned. That was the first day.

On the second day, God made the earth and over it He carefully hung a blue sky. He stood back and admired His creation. "That's good too!" said God and the second day was over.

The next morning God looked around and thought, "The earth needs to be a bit more organized." So, He put all the water in one place and all the dry land in another. When He had finished that, God made plants to cover the land. Dandelions and daffodils appeared. All sorts of trees and grasses began to grow.

On the fourth day, God thought, "The daylight still needs a bit more work and the night is just too dark." So, He made the sun to light the sky during the day and the moon and stars to add a bit of sparkle to the night. 

The next day, God turned his attention to the water he had collected in the oceans. "I want these waters full of life!" In no time, there were millions of small fish swimming in the ocean. God made birds, too. He sent them flying through the air. 

On the sixth day, God added creatures to the land. He made lions and tigers and bears. He made rabbits and sheep and cows. He added everything from ants to zebras to the land. But He still felt something was missing. So God added Mankind to enjoy and take care of all that He had created. God looked around and was happy with all He had made.

After six days, the whole universe was completed. On the seventh day God had a nice long rest and enjoyed looking at all He had made.


Key questions:

  • What was the first thing that God made?
  • Which things did God put on land?
  • Which creatures did God put in the water?
  • What do you love about our world?


Draw a heart. Inside the heart, draw things that you love about our world that God created e.g. stars, trees, animals. Can you write ‘God created the world’ on your paper?

Idea of the day: Make coloured feelings jars. If you don’t have jars you could use bottles/boxes/draw them. Fill each one with a different ‘colour’ to show a feeling. You could use different objects to show the feeling e.g. a blue pompom in the ‘sadness’ jar. How is your Colour Monster feeling today? How are you feeling today?


Bonus idea: Listen to the story ‘There’s a Pig Up My Nose’ by John Dougherty read by Casper and his family! A special edition of story time!
