'Believe to Achieve'

Tuesday 12.5.20

Well Being Activity


Today, we would like you to create a 'Dream Jar.'

We would like you to write or draw all the things you cannot wait to do in the future. You can either put these in a real jar (if you have one at home) and keep it in your bedroom/house or draw a jar and write/draw inside it. 



Starter – Numbers from 60-70


Today we are going to continue practising the numbers between 60 and 70.  Play Fastest Finger using your hundred square.  Get someone to say a number between 60 and 70 and point to it as fast as you can.  After a quick practice, see how many you can get in one minute.


Comparing Number Sentences


Today we are going to be comparing number sentences.  Think about what compare means.  When we compare in maths, there are certain words and phrases we need to be able to understand and use.


The include:  Less than

                     Greater / more than

                     Equal to / The same as


Can you remember what the mathematical symbols for these are?

It is useful to imagine the < and > symbols as crocodile jaws.  The hungry crocodile always wants to eat the largest number.  It is important to emphasise the correct mathematical language whilst using this analogy.


For example:  12 > 10.  The crocodile eats the large number.  The correct language would be, "Twelve is greater than ten."


Another example would be 34 < 43.  The crocodile eats the big number.  Thirty-four is less than forty-three.

Our task for today is to apply these symbols to compare number sentences.  First you need to be able to solve the addition and subtractions, then you need to select the correct symbol to go in between them.


When doing this and applying the equals sign, it is important to remember that equals does not mean 'answer', it means 'the same as'.


Here is an example:


What sign goes in between these?


13+4                 15


13+4=17. The crocodile eats the big number which is 17.  17 is greater than 15 so I need the 'greater than' symbol.


13+4   >   15


Here is another example:


What symbol goes in between?


7+5       15-3


7+5 =12 and 15-3=12.  They are both the same so I need the equals sign.


7+5  = 15-3

Now try and answer these questions.  As usual, they are included in a printable document at the bottom of this section.  Don't forget to get in touch if you need any clarification of any answers.





Extra Challenge - Reasoning and Problem Solving





Spellings (Y1 Common Exception Words) are, were, was, is, his

Remember to learn to read and write the words independently


Activity - Today we would like you to design your own house and write adjectives to describe what you have designed. Think about what you can see in your house and the key things you need to include (as roof, doors, windows, wall). What does your house need to be in order for you to be able to live in it comfortably?

Activity - Curriculum


Today can you complete the Weather Diary task on the Curriculum section on the main weekly page. Remember we are learning about the local environment including where we live, what we can see around us and where we come from.   


This week we would like you to explore the weather in Nottingham, thinking about the weather you see over the week. Watch the weather forecast, draw pictures and write information about the weather. 

Phonics and Reading


We would like you to click on the videos below and watch the phonics lessons from Letters and Sounds. Activities which you can do to apply the sound are in the video and there are also linked underneath.  


After, please watch the videos on the phonics resource and support section which practices all your phonics sounds using the flashcards which we use at school. 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.
