Thursday 2nd July


Objective – I can double numbers to 20.


Today we are going to practice what we learnt yesterday about doubles. Can you remember any of your doubles? It might be helpful to have a look at your doubles work because if we can learn doubles, we don’t need to work them out every time. If someone asks you double 1, can you say the answer? Ask someone to test you on what you can remember and practice recalling doubles.


Task – There is a choice of activities today or you might decide to do them both.


You can either complete the ‘butterfly doubles activity’ and complete the doubles by drawing dots on the butterfly wings (you might want to make your own butterflies or ladybirds and draw your doubles on their backs to help you if you prefer).




You can play ‘Hit the button’ game (select doubles to 10), to practice your doubles.

Challenge – Try the ‘activity cards’ to practice what you have learnt about doubles.


Objective –  I can plan my own story.


Today we are going to plan our own story about a lost toy. You can write the story about yourself and your favourite toy or if you prefer, you can make up a character instead. Can you remember from a few weeks ago we used a story map to plan our story using small pictures and key words? That is what I want you to do today.


Task – Create a story map for your own version of ‘Treasures in the Garden’. Start with your character (either you or a made up character) and a lost toy. You or your character need to then go out into the garden to look for the lost toy but that is when the adventure starts! You might need a bit of help from an adult to help you start your adventure, but have a think about the different adventures you could go on from your garden. Think about the items you could collect from your adventures (remember we did this last week on your walk so these ideas might help you). Then at the end of the story you or your character look through all of the items you have collected. And finish your story with the lost toy being found again! Remember a story map is made up of small pictures that help you to tell the story verbally. Once you have finished your pictures, remember to add key words so you don’t forget them when you are writing your story. 

Challenge – Can you use your story map to tell someone in your family your story? Try to tell them the story how you would write it – in full sentences with your key words.


Today we are going to learn how to write words that have 'ore' in them. Work through the power point with an adult and practice writing words with 'ore' in. After you can decide if you want to design a water bottle using some of the 'ore' words you have learnt this week or write the missing words to match the pictures. You might even decide to try both!
