'Believe to Achieve'

Thursday 11.6.20

Financial Education Activity


Today, we are going to think about needs and wants.

What do we need to survive and what would it be nice to have?

Can you sort the items below in to what you need and want in order to live. 

As a challenge can you write sentences to explain why it is a want or a need.





For a starter today, you are going to practice all the numbers between 0 and 100. These numbers should be well practised by now so hopefully your child can quick write a lot of numbers accurately in one minute.  Say numbers between 0 and 100 and see how many your child can successfully record in one minute.


Making Arrays


We use arrays to introduce children to multiplication and division.  They are a really useful way of representing repeated addition or sharing equally as children can see how the equal groups relate to one another.  Today you are going to practice making some arrays where the rows and columns contain either two, five or ten.  Watch the video below for an example.

The focus today is to ensure that your child can make an array with a consistent number objects in each row and column.  Below are some example of maths talk - questions and things to discuss as you build arrays.



Once your child is confident at building and explaining arrays, complete the table below.

Remember to learn to read and write the words independently


Activity - Can you apply your knowledge of questions to write some of your own?

Activity - Science


Today we are going to explore the sense of 'sight'.

We are going to think about:


Which part of your body do you use to see with?

How do they allow you to tell the difference between different things?

When can you see things? When can’t you see things?

What can we use to change the way things appear to us?


Please go to the previous page on the Home Learning section and explore the science section to discover the different activities for the day including optical illusions. 

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.
