Friday 8th January

Good Morning Ruby Class!
I hope that you are all having a fantastic week. I’m missing you all lots. 
You have all worked so hard this week and have been absolutely amazing. I love seeing your pictures, work and little messages so keep them coming! 
Well done to you all... and to your families!
I hope that you have lots of fun with your learning today and also get a chance to play in the snow! 
Thinking of you all, Mrs Cole

Learning Objective: I can count forwards and backwards to 20. 


Today, we will be continuing to recap our numbers from 1-20. Follow this link to BBC Teach, complete the quiz and watch the Teacher Video which begins to focus on numbers that end in 'teen'.

Then have a go at the challenges. 


  • Can you count on and back without looking at the number line to help you?

  • Can you start counting on from 10 and stop at 18?

  • Can you say 18?

  • Can you write 18 in numbers and words?

  • What number comes after 18? Can you write it in numbers and words?

  • What number comes before 18? Can you write it in number and words?

Extension Activities:

  • Practice your counting skills by playing 'Bud's Number Garden' available here:

  • Let's play Snap! I have attached some number cards below showing different representations for each number from 1-20. Print these off, or make your own, and play snap with an adult or sibling!


Last term, we began to learn about our Phase 5 split digraphs. Can you remember what a split digraph is? Take a look at this 'Alphablocks' video to remind you!


Today, we are going to be looking at reading and writing real words using a split digraph before looking at each one in more detail next week. 


  • Practice reading words by using the 'Split Digraph Flashcards' I have attached below. 
  • Complete the 'Split Digraph Worksheet' by looking carefully at each picture and writing the word next to it. I have also included the answer sheet for you!
Extension Activity:
Select one word from each section on the 'Split Diagraph Worksheet' and write it in a sentence. Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Can you get more than one split diagraph word in your sentence?

Today, our English and Topic work will be combined! 


Learning Objectives:

  • I can use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
  • I can write an information text. 



Learning Objective: I can ask and answer geographical questions.


As you know, this term we will be focusing on the the continent of Antarctica!



  • What do you already know about Antarctica?
  • What would you like to find out?


Today, I would like you to find out more about Antarctica and create your very own fact file! First of all, you will need to research some information about Antarctica. You may have some books at home and you can use these resources to help you:



You can create your fact file on paper or on the computer. Don't forget to include a picture or drawing! Then email your work to me, along with this week's learning, to I can't wait to see them!
