'Believe to Achieve'

Tuesday 5.5.20



Starter Activities


As ever, start by practising Gem maths.  Then we are going to be learning the numbers from 50-60.  Some of you may know these already but we haven't covered them in school yet.  All you need to do today is practise counting up and down in 1s between 50 and 60.  Use the 100 square to help, pointing to the numbers as you go.  Think about the pattern as you counted the numbers in the 20s, 30s and 40s and how this would apply to the 50s.


Subtraction - Break Apart


Today we are going to be looking at another type of subtraction problem - 'break apart' problems.  Rather than remove part of quantity, 'break apart' questions split it into two parts.


For example:  There are six bottles of coke.  Two have been opened.  How many are unopened?


This is a subtraction problem but we aren't taking anything away.


We can solve these using a sketch or using other objects to represent the numbers.  Have a go at these problems below.


Six is the whole, two is a part.  What is the other part?





Reasoning and Problem Solving Challenges




Spellings (Y1 Common Exception Words) - said, no, go, so, has

Remember to learn to read and write these words independently


Activity - Building on the work we did yesterday where you heard the story of the Three Little Pigs and wrote adjectives about their houses, we would now like you to put them in sentences. You are going to use the adjectives you have written and put them in a double rainbow sentence to describe each of the images of the houses.

Activity - Topic


This half term, through our Geography topic, we are setting a weekly project to complete linked to where we live and the world around us. Please go back to the previous page and find the Topic button at the bottom of the page where you will find the work to complete. 


This week we are thinking about the countries of the United Kingdom, their capital cities and the seas which surround it. 

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.
