'Believe to Achieve'

Monday 15.6.20





This week, begin by practising your Gem Maths.  Please email us to let us know how you are getting on with this and what levels you are now on as additional materials can be provided if you have completed the set.


Next we are going to do some counting together in twos.  Begin practising counting up from zero.  We are then going to try to extend this by counting in twos from different numbers.  See if you can join in with me.

Making Doubles


Today's lesson is all about doubles.  Building on what you learned last week about equal groups,  you are going to be exploring doubles of numbers to twenty.


Question:  What is a double?


Answer:  Two groups of the same number or amount.


I want you to practice doubling numbers using the sentence, 'Double ___ is ___.'


Use items from around your home.  Get an amount and see if you can double it then see how much there is by counting in twos. Use the sentence structure above to explain what you have done.


You are also going to look at visual representations and decide if they show doubling or not.


Now try the questions below.





Here are the questions in a document.



Spellings (Y1 Common Exception Words) I, the, a, today, of,

Remember to learn to read and write the words independently


Activity - Today, we are going to explore adding the conjunction 'so' to sentences. Watch the video of Miss Smith showing you an English lesson about how to include the conjunction 'so' then complete the sentences below.

I went to the farm so...

We went to the supermarket so...

I like to go to a party so...

We all learnt the song so...

I went to the park so...

We all went to the beach so...



Can you make your own sentences including the conjunction 'so'?

Activity - Saltdough Activity

How to make salt dough

Making salt dough is a really fun and easy activity for kids and the chances are you will have all of the ingredients in the cupboard ready to go on a rainy day. Children will love using their imaginations to create all sorts of exciting objects (although simple shapes do seem to work best) and hours of fun painting their creations, but do take care to remind little ones that the salt dough is not edible.

Makes 1 ball
Prep 10 minutes
Cook 3 hours



  • 1 cupful of plain flour (about 250g)
  • half a cupful of table salt (about 125g)
  • half a cupful of water (about 125ml)


1. Preheat the oven to its lowest setting and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

2. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball.

3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and shape into your chosen model. You can roll it out and cut out shapes, numbers or letters using biscuit cutters, or make any kind of model you can think of. We made some fruit and veg shapes plus cupcakes for a teddy bear’s picnic.


4. Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake for 3 hrs or until solid.


5. Leave to cool and then paint.

Phonics and Reading


We would like you to watch the phonics lessons from Letters and Sounds which are located on YouTube and also uploaded on the phonics resource and support section in the Home Learning part of the website.


We are uploading the videos from the previous week and would like you to keep checking the Phonics section each day, especially if there is a sound your child needs to work on. Please feel free to revisit this sound, as this is what we would be doing in class to consolidate understanding. 


If there are supporting activities to support the video, they will be underneath, There are also some videos using flash cards. Please have a go at saying the sounds along with Miss Smith. Make sure you are saying the pure sounds accurately. 


Don't forget to read your book everyday.
