Wednesday 6th May

Good Morning, it's Wednesday so a great opportunity to start our day with another 'Wonderful Wednesday word!' Today's Wednesday Word is led by Mrs Armstrong-Boyle. Please follow the link below and spend a few minutes reflecting on today's word.

I have also put a link below to one of our favourite hymns we like to sing in class if you fancy a singalong!

Pirate Challenge

Have a look below at today's pirate challenge and there is a template to use if you choose or you can draw on plain paper or in your home learning books. I can't wait to see the results!



Today we wil  be working practically to put objects into equal groups of either 2's, 5's or 10's. You will need some practical objects to group with; perhaps pasta, counters, lego bricks, raisins, sweets (I'd probably end up eating these!) smiley

Watch the PowerPoint presentation below; you may like to use your counting objects to predict the answers before revealing them. 




Using your counters and the task cards included on the sheets below to share your objects into equal groups. The one star challenge is based on sharing into 2 groups. The two and three star challenges look to share larger groups of objects in to groups of 2, 5 and 10. My recommendation would be that you stick to the one star challenge today, unless you are feeing very confident. 


When you have solved the question on your task card, you could draw your sets in your green books and record as follows;


There are _____ objects


We need _______(2,5,or 10) in each group


There are _____ groups.


For example,

There are 10 objects

We beed 2 groups

There are 5 groups.


Below are the task cards and example of how to lay out your work.

Science - plants

Today we will continue our investigation of plants by looking at wild plants. Have a look at the different plants in today's presentation and how the seeds came to be there. Invite your child to describe each of the plants features.

You will find the worksheets in your home learning pack and I have put a copy on the link below.
