Wed 8th July

Wednesday 8th July


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 halving.

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


Day 3: 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 circle for an example. Print/draw the shapes below. Can you cut the shapes in half? Can you cut the shapes into two equal parts? What does halving mean? Explain what you are doing in full sentences. E.g. “I have a circle. This is the whole. I cut the circle in half. Now I have two equal parts. Two parts make the whole.”


Key questions: Can you cut the shape in half? Can you cut the shape 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. z-i-p zip (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: Choose and draw a character from the story ‘The Little Red Hen’. What does the character say? Can you draw a speech bubble? Write sentences to show what the character might be saying e.g. “Who will help me cut the wheat?” Remember to use your ‘Fred Fingers’ when sounding out your words.


R.E.: Our topic is called ‘Our World’. We praise God for our wonderful world!


Look at the picture below and talk about what you can see. God said “Take care of my world!”


Look at the picture below. “Let’s praise God together!”



Key questions:

  • Where might the children be singing?
  • Where do you like to sing?


Let’s pray to God:

Dear God,

We praise and thank you for your wonderful world.



Join in with the song and sing ‘Praise him’.


We are all part of God’s family. God made people equal. We all share in God’s wonderful world and we should take of it together.


How can we look after our world? Draw a picture of the earth. Can you draw the land and the water? Can you draw pictures to show how to look after our world? E.g. putting rubbish in the bin. Can you label your pictures? You could write sentences to explain what you have drawn.


Idea of the day: Make a loaf of bread. Ask an adult to supervise you cooking. Put a sachet of yeast and 1tsp of caster sugar into a bowl. Add 290ml warm water. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it starts to foam. Sift 500g plain flour in a bowl and stir in 1tsp salt. Create a well in the flour and then pour in the liquid. Bring together to form a dough. Dust your surface with flour and knead for 15 minutes until stretchy. Shape the dough and put on a baking tray. Cover the tray with cling film and leave to rise somewhere warm for 1 hour. Take off the cling film and dust the loaf with flour. Cook the bread at 200C for 20 minutes.
