Maths: 10am Live session on TEAMS.

This week in Maths our learning intention is: to see how a quantity can be changed by adding more. To be successful in today’s learning you will be able to: count all objects to find the answer, move onto counting on to find the answer, adding two amounts and knowing that the final number is the total amount.

 Today, we are going to be using first, then and now stories to help us add amounts. For example, first there were 2 people on the bus, then 3 children got on, how many are there now?

The number sentence for this would be 2 + 3= 5.

For your home learning today choose one or more of the activities below:

-Have a go at answering the addition word problems.

-Make up your own addition stories using first, then and now.


-Numberblock song:

Literacy: 11.30am Live session on TEAMS.

This week in Literacy our learning intention is: to create and label your own farm map. To be successful in today’s learning you will be able to: use talk to sequence and clarify your ideas, use clear, identifiable letters to write labels and construct a farm map inspired by your knowledge of our class book ‘What the Ladybird Heard’.

First discuss the different animals you might find on the farm. Would you expect to see an elephant or giraffe? Next, talk about the names of their ‘houses’, does a pig live in the pond? Does a duck live in the stable? You could make a list of these ideas so that you don’t forget!

Now, think back to the story ‘What the ladybird heard’, can you remember that the robbers made a map to help them steal the fine, prize cow! It is your turn to create a map and label it with the animal name and habitat e.g. ‘Horse’s Stable’.

Have a look at the example from the story for some guidance! Below is a video of ‘What the ladybird heard’ for you to watch again too.


This afternoon we would like you to practise your turn taking skills by playing a game of Farmyard Bingo. You can find the cards attached to print and play with or perhaps you might like to create your own set of cards!

Once you have your cards ready, cut out a selection, turn one over at a time, if you have a matching picture on your Bingo card- you can cross it off! Remember, the first person to have all of their animals crossed off is the winner! You can play as many times as you like and I wonder if you can remember all of the animal names too!
