Hello everyone, I hope you are all well and still enjoying the beautiful weather :)

Below is a suggested list of work for the following week 27/04/2020 – 01/05/2020. Complete what you can. It was great to hear from so many people this week and see some of the brilliant work that has been completed so far.

Remember continue to help out around the house and continue to enjoy the sunshine.

Like last week I have put up a grid on the blog with the work for each day and then here I have added the logins to the individual sites with some extra details too.

I will attach a sheet to the blog of games and activities you can practice at home to reinforce all the content covered this week.


-Today the children will complete two pages on number.

P. 129: is a fun puzzle page where the children have to make the biggest and smallest numbers from domino pieces and dice that have up to 9 dots on each section. If you have two dice at home or a boxes a domino pieces you could try this activity with the children.

P.130: Is a revision page on number. If you have access to a printer, you could print off p. 130 for the children to complete. Alternatively ask the children the clues from the crossword Orally.
