Week 7


W/C 4th May


We are in May! Wow! Where is the time going!?

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



This week we are learning all about Part-whole relationships number bonds


Take a look at Summer Term Week 3 on Whiterose Maths Home Learning.

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

Remember: 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.




Answer these questions

How many legs does a spider have?

How big is the world’s largest spider?

What do spiders make to catch flies?

Where do spiders like to build webs?



We have learnt the phoneme ‘oe’ as in toe.  Today we will split the phoneme up.

Learn the phoneme ‘o-e’ as in bone. Explain this is called a ‘split digraph’.


Segment and blend ‘o-e’ words (whole, explode, stone).


Dictate this sentence for your child to write:

Can a stone explode?


Encourage your child to read this sentence:

If you are home alone and you find a bone, will you get on the phone?


Alternatively, you can join in with the lessons below



Practice spelling the following common exception words:

children, Mr, Mrs, that, what.

Can you put them into a sentence?



Continuing on from last week’s activities using Talk4writing.


Read the story of Sidney Spider (see the link below) with a grown-up and remind your grown-up what the story is about.


Then complete the following tasks:


Task 1



Here are some words from the story.

Can you share them with an adult and work out what they mean?


Say the words in different ways. For example: quickly, softly, loudly and slowly.





Task 2

Can you name four animals that hunt for their prey?

Think about all the animals we learned about last term.



Mrs Brown liked the song Incy Wincy Spider


Can you show your grown up the actions?

Perhaps you could record yourself singing the song and email it to us.


Do you know any more songs with spiders in?




Can you do a good deed every day this week?

It could be helping at home, tidy your room, give to charity, smile, say thank you and please, do some baking together, share a book with your brother/sister, help set the table, wash the dishes, give someone in your house a hug, plant something etc

The idea is to be kind and make someone else feel good. smiley



Whilst celebrating Ramadan, Muslims draw patterns on their hands and feet using Henna ink.

Design your own henna pattern.

Notice how they are drawn in shades of reds and browns!

Have fun and stay safe!
