We are in week 6! Parents/carers you’ve got this!

We have more fun and exciting home learning activities this week.



This week is all about finding half (1/2) and a quarter (1/4)


Take a look at Summer Term Week 2 on Whiterose Maths Home Learning.

For each lesson, there is a video to watch and an activity to do.

You do not need to print the activities.

You can either complete the answers in your home learning book or you can just tell an adult your answers.


Log onto your MyMaths tasks.



Read your favourite book to your parents, teddies, or siblings.

Can you create your own story map, with the beginning, middle and end, for the story?

Take a look at an example of the Owl Babies story map below to remind you how to complete one.



Go on Phonics Play and practise some phase 5 phonics.


Learn the phoneme ‘ph’ as in dolphin.

Segment and blend ‘ph’ words (phone, alphabet, phew, photo).


Parents: Dictate this sentence for your child to write:


I took a photo of a dolphin.


Parents: Encourage your child to read this sentence:


The alphabet is on my phone.


Challenge!! Can you think of your own ‘ph' sentence to write?


Alternatively, you can join in with the lesson below from the 27th April.
