Friday 24th April

Good Morning.

I hope that you have all enjoyed your week of home learning and have been able to spend some time outside in the lovely weather.

Don’t forget to visit Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel for an energetic start to your day.

You can also follow phonics live on Ruth Miskin training’s YouTube page where Read, Write inc. phonics lessons are available. For the times please check the phonics section of our class page.

Attached below are our learning activities for today. You also have your CGP Maths and English 10 minute workout books. Please complete Autumn term: workout 8 in your Maths book.

Don’t forget to take regular breaks outside and you can try some of the activities suggested in your workbook that was sent home.



In Maths we are continuing to secure our understanding of subtraction. To help you with this you can use buttons, counters, pencils or other objects you have.

Count out 20 of your chosen object, and place them in front of you. Pick up a handful of them and count how many you have in your hand. Can you write a subtraction number sentence to work out how many are left in front of you?
e.g. I picked up 7 buttons in my hand. I started with 20 buttons and I took away 7.
20 – 7
Using my number sentence I worked out there are 13 left in front of me. I can count them to check I have found the right answer.

In your book, underneath the dot date write down your number sentences.


Ask an adult or an older brother or sister to test you on your spellings. Let me know in an email how you get on, especially if you score 8/8!
I have also added next week’s spellings below so you can start learning them.

Can you write a sentence for each of the words from today’s spelling test?

Our next sound is 'ow'. Take a little bit of time each day to learn these words and then ask an adult to test you on Friday.









In PE we will be working to develop of throwing and catching skills further and moving at different speeds with accuracy.
Today can you warm up by seeing how many star jumps you can manage in 30 seconds? You can try a few times to see if you can  beat your score.

We are going to learn how to throw over-arm today. If you have a ball or a beanbag these would be ideal, but a small cushion will also work well. Hold your object in one hand next to your shoulder. Remember to look where you are throwing, this could be to a person or an area you want your object to land. From next to your shoulder move your hand forward until your arm is straight, then release your object. You may want to practice a few times to gain confidence and practice your aim.

Practice throwing and catching with a partner. How many passes can you manage without dropping your object?


Read your school reading book or another book from home. Remember to use your phonics to help you to read any tricky words.
