Year 1 - Badgers and Hedgehogs




At the top of the page we will always have our most current week's learning that has been sent out. We have created a weekly timetable of activities for you to work on at home linked to reading, handwriting, Maths, CLIC, phonics/spelling, writing, topic and PE. We have also included some general wellbeing exercises at the bottom of the timetable. Any resources that may be needed are included below the timetable. This timetable will also be followed within school for children attending.


We hope you are keeping safe and well. 

Miss Stannard and Mrs Witts

Week Beginning 20th July

We can't believe this is the last week before the summer holidays. We hope you have a good last week of learning. Remember you have all been fantastic, you have worked hard and we are very proud of you. In your last week, continue to be concentrating crocodiles, and persevering parrots. Enjoy, have fun.  

Week Beginning 13th July

So the weather hasn't been great but we hope it hasn't stopped you from doing exciting things and doing lots of learning. Below is the timetable and all the resources for next week. Have a good week learning. See if you can be a great Go For it Gorilla or a super concentrating crocodile. Don't forget to upload photos of your work o the Maun Facebook page.

Cutting skills and listening skills.


We are working hard to improve the children’s fine motor skills. Each week we are giving them a cutting activity. The children have to carefully follow the lines. This week colour the alligator neatly and then cut it out. 
Try the listening activity. An adult reads out the instructions, your child will listen carefully and respond appropriately on the sheet. Have fun developing these skills.

Home learning week beginning 6th July


We hope you all have a lovely weekend and the start of next week the sun starts to come back. 

This week in our learning, we are reading the book The bear and the Piano. You can watch a version of this text on Youtube. It is a beautiful story, we hope you like it. Our topic this week, is all about staying safe in and around the home. We are also currently trying to improve our cutting and colouring skills. So on  the timetable this week weh have included a  cutting activity. The children need to cut out the shapes, then stick them together to make a picture of a rocket. Then colour it in neatly, remember small strokes. The other skill we are developing is our listening skills. There is an activity called number blocks. An adult reads the instructions out and the child has to respond correctly. The instruction should only be read once, so listen carefully. 

Look at the timetable and all the resources below. Have a good week learning. Don't forget to post all your great efforts on the Maun Facebook page.




Listening game and cutting activity

The bear and the piano sequencing the story

Use the pictures above to help you re-tell the story of The bear and the piano. Keep rehearsing your story and you'll find your vocabulary improves and you start to add more phrases from the story. Re-tell your story to your family. 

Home Learning Week beginning 29th June 2020

This week we are going to be learning about road safety and how we keep ourselves safe when out and about walking along the street. We will be learning about the green cross code, looking at different road signs and even trying to make up our own story.

We hope you are finding the workbooks useful and supportive. Have a good week learning and we can't wait to see all your posts on the Maun Facebook page. 



In class we use Chatta to help the children rehearse their sentences before writing. Use one photo at a time to rehearse your sentence. Say it out loud. The more you rehearse, the better your writing will become. Think about your sentence openers. For example, When I ride my bike to school, I wear a helmet. Remember your capital letters and full stops. The Chatta photos are linked to the writing lesson on Monday. 

Home Learning Week Beginning 22nd June 2020

We hope you had a good weekend and are now fresh and ready to start your learning this week. This week, we are learning all about people who help us and keep us safe. Look at the timetable to see what pages you are doing in your work books this week. In English this week, can you make your own people who help us book and each day draw and write sentences about the people who help us. You can give it a contents page, page numbers, labels and even a blurb on the back cover. Do a page a day and on Friday you can complete the front cover.  Have a good week learning. Remember to post all your photos on the Maun Facebook page. Have a great week.

Home Learning Week Beginning 15th June

We hope you had a good week last week and enjoyed all the learning. Below is the timetable for next week and all the resources. Next week in handwriting, we are forming the letters from the curly caterpillar family. Watch the videos on the Maun Facebook page.  We hope the work books support you. We have referenced them in the timetable.  We love to see all your great efforts, so keep the posts coming of all your work. Have a good week.

Home Learning - Week Beginning 8th June

Below is the timetable from Monday 8th June. All the resources are below. We will be doing the same learning in school. We would love to see all your hard work, so don’t forget to write any messages or attach photos to the Year 1 Facebook post regarding next weeks learning. We’ll post it Monday morning ready for you. Have a great week learning. 


Friday 22nd May

Happy Friday! Our Phonics activity for today is a bit of a treasure hunt! See if you can spot the 'ea' words hidden around the picture. Make a list of the words you find and read. 

What are these numbers- 900, 400, 700, 600, 100, 200, 500, 300, 800 and 1000.

For the Learn Its I will do a mix of halves and doubles. What is half of - 4, 800, 60, 200, 10, 12, 600, 80. What is double - 5, 100, 60, 3, 400, 20, 10.

In today’s It’s Nothing New, try to make the group as large as you can and count it accurately. Count with 4 different lots of objects.

Calculations using the number line crossing 20- 18+7= 13+8= 15+9= 18+9= 17+8=

Have a lovely day and as next week is half term enjoy the break. We’ll be back on Monday June 1st, see you soon 😊

Thursday 21st May

Good morning! Our Phonics activity today carries on our work looking at 'ea' that makes the 'ee' in words. Have a look at the pictures below. Can you spell them by sounding them out? Which ones use the 'ea'? Write a list of the words.

What are these hundreds numbers? 700, 500, 200, 400, 900, 100, 300, 1000, 600 and 800.

We will be looking at halves again today but with tens and hundreds. Remember to use what you know about the single digits to help you work these out- 400, 60, 10, 800, 40, 200, 600, 20, 80, 100.

For It’s Nothing New, try to pick up a group of objects bigger than 20 again. Count them accurately. Can you do this with 3 different groups of objects?

Use the number line to add the calculations - 14+9= 19+7= 20+6= 13+8= 15+6=

Wednesday 20th May

Our Phonics activity today looks at the 'ea' that makes the 'ee' sound. Using a dice (either at home or one on google), roll and read one of the words that use the 'ea'. Have a go at putting some of the words into silly sentences. 

Today we are adding in 700, 800, 900 and 1000 for the children to recognise. Don’t worry if your child says ten hundred as opposed to one thousand. It is actually a good thing that they recognise that this number has ten hundreds in it but we call it one thousand.

In Learn Its today we will look at halves- what is half of 4, 2, 10, 12, 8 and 6?

It’s Nothing New- use objects from around the house for counting. Can you make the group bigger than 20 today?
Calculations on the number line will be past 20. 17+5= 13+9= 18+8= 19+7= 17+9=.

Tuesday 19th May

Our Phonics activity today carries on our learning linked to 'ie' making the 'igh' sound. Have a read through my postcard, can you find all the 'ie' words? Can you see any of the ways we have made 'ee' so far in the postcard?

We are continuing to recognise the 3 digit hundreds numbers. What are these?600, 100, 400, 500, 200, 300.

Today’s Learn Its are doubles again but the tens and hundreds! Remember to use what you know about the single digit to help. What is double 100, 50, 200, 10, 30, 400, 40, 60?
In It’s Nothing New we are counting a big group accurately. Choose some things to count and pick up more than 15. Remember to put the objects into rows so that you don’t miss any/ count twice.

The calculations will be adding 1 digit to a 2 digit. 18+6= 12+9= 14+9= 19+3= 15+6=

Enjoy the sunny weather🌞til tomorrow.

Monday 18th May

Our Phonics activity for today looks at the 'ie' that makes the 'ee' sound. Have a look at the word cards below. Can you read them and sort them into real and nonsense words? As an extra challenge can you use some of the real words in sentences? 

For the counting this week we will be looking at 3 digit numbers. When the children see the two zeros they will recognise them as the hundreds numbers. What are these - 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600?
The Learn Its will be a mix of doubles and halves this week. Today it’s doubles. What is double2, double 10, double 6, double 3, double 5, double 1, double 4.

It’s Nothing New is about careful counting like Pim. He is the alien in the picture below. He has 7 of everything eyes, legs, antennae etc He counts accurately and so the children need to count a large amount of objects accurately. You could count pens, Lego bricks, dots on paper whatever you fancy! Get a group larger than 15 and see if the children can count without miscounting or counting things twice. Remind them to put the objects in rows to help with not counting twice.

In the calculations we are carrying on adding a 1 digit to a 2 digit number past 20. Use a number line to help with this 18+4= 19+6= 15+9= 13+8= 16+8=

Friday 15th May

Our Phonics activity for today starts to look at 'ie' making an 'ee' sound in words. Using the cards below, can you build some different 'ie' words? Ask a grown-up to help you. If there are any words you don't  know, see if you can find out what they mean. 

Partition the 2 digit numbers- 85, 42, 77, 92 and 53.

Add on 3- try to recall these number sentences quickly- 7+3= 5+3= 4+3= 2+3= 1+3= 3+3= 6+3=

We are going to do a mix of tens and hundreds today. Find half of each, use what you know about the single number to help. Eg 600 half of 6 is 3 so half of 600 is 300. Find halves of 80, 600, 400, 20, 60, 200, 800 and 40.

Add 1 digit to a 2 digit number, remember these will go past 20. 17+5= 13+9= 18+6= 12+9= and 14+8=

Have a super weekend ☺️

Thursday 14th May

Good morning, our phonics activity for today looks at the 'y' making the 'ee' in words. Have a read of the words below. There are some sentences with words missing, can you figure out which 'y' word goes where? 


Good Morning everyone 😀

Let’s partition some more 2 digit numbers - 58, 70, 64, 99 and 31.

How quickly can you do these adding on 3 number sentences - 4+3= 6+3= 2+3= 5+3= 1+3= 3+3= 7+3=

We are going to do halves of numbers again today. Use what you know for the single digits to work them out. That’s why we call this It’s Nothing New! Half of 200, half of 600, half of 400, half of 800.

We are going to add a 1 digit number to a 2 digit number but today we will be crossing 20 so make sure your number line is longer than 20! 15+5= 17+6= 18+4= 16+6=

Happy Wednesday! Here is your Phonics activity for today and we are going to look at the 'y' that makes the 'ee' in words. Have a go at reading these words. If there are any you don't know, see if you can find out what they mean. See if you can use the ones you know in some sentences today. 

Have a go at partitioning these numbers- 54, 78, 21, 97, 56.

Add on 3 to the numbers, try to do them from memory. 3+3=, 1+3=, 2+3=, 4+3=, 6+3=, 7+3= and 5+3=.

We have done half of the single digits. Now let’s do half of the tens numbers. Eg 60- use what you know about the single digits to work this out. If half of 6 is 3 then half of 60 is 30. We are adding the 0s to make the tens. Find half of 80, 40, 10, 60, 20.

Use a number line to add the 1 digit numbers to the 2 digit numbers- 18+2=, 13+5=, 11+6=, 10+7= and 15+4=

Until tomorrow 😊

Tuesday 12th May

Good morning, here's your Phonics activity for today. Our activity focuses on the different split digraphs we have been looking at recently a_e, e_e, i_e, o_e and u_e.

Can you spot the different words using the split digraph? Count them up. The split digraph used the most will reveal the answer. 

The counting today is continuing the partition of 2 digit numbers. Remember that the tens for example in 36 is 30 and 6 ones. Have a go at partitioning these numbers - 86, 61, 55, 39.

Add on 3 to the numbers. Again, you can use a number line to help today. 6+3=, 1+3=, 3+3=, 4+3=, 2+3=, 5+3=.

It’s Nothing New  is halves of the numbers. Find some objects and put them in half, remember the two groups have to have the same amount - half of 6 coins, half of 10 fingers, half of 2 biscuits, half of 4 tins, half of 8 blocks.

Calculations are adding a 1 digit number to a 2 digit number. Use a number line to help. 
13+ 4=, 15+4=, 17+1=, 12+6=, 11+6=

See you tomorrow 😁

Monday 11th May

Hello everyone, we hope you’ve had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend ☺️
Right, onto CLIC this week!

Counting this week is partitioning 2 digit numbers so we are looking at the fact that 45 is 5 ones and 4 tens. Children get confused when we say it’s a 4 and 5. If we look at it as four tens, then the 0 in 40 is replaced by 5 ones and so it becomes 45. Look at the photo below to partition these numbers- 26, 49, 62, 81.

Learn Its are adding on 3. Just like last week we added on 2, we are replacing this with 3 and wanting the children to commit these to memory for a quick recall. Use a number line today to help work them out. 2+3= 3+3= 4+3= ( they should know this as Pim’s number) 5+3= 


In It’s Nothing New we are doing the opposite of last week, we are halving numbers. Again quick recall is what we are after. Half of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.

Calculations- we are adding 1 digit to a 2 digit number using a number line. Have a go at these- 16+3= 12+5= 17+2= 13+5=


Our Phonics activity today is looking at the different ways of making the 'ee' sound. Have a look at the words, can you sort them into the right columns? Practise spelling and using the words in sentences. See if you can find any of the words in your reading today.  

See you tomorrow 😊

Thursday 7th May

Good Morning everyone, hope you are all well 😁

Count again in 2s to 30 this morning. I hope you’re getting a little faster at doing this and are remembering which numbers come next.

Learn Its - number sentences that add 2. Let’s do them all today 1+2= 2+2= 3+2= 4+2= 5+2= 6+2= 7+2= 8+2=

It’s Nothing New is the Fact Families. I’m going to give one of the subtraction sentences again today. Work out the answer and then do the other sentences, 2 addition, 2 subtraction using the same three numbers for each number sentence. 8-5=

The calculations are subtraction and again, try to see if you can subtract to 10 first and then the rest to get to the answer eg 15-7= would be 15-5=10 then 10-2= 8 ( the 7 is split into 5 and 2, with the 5 getting to 10.)

Have a lovely day, enjoy the VE celebrations tomorrow​​​​​, See you soon.☺️

Our Phonics activity today focuses on the 'u_e' split digraph. Can you spot any of the u_e words we looked at yesterday?

Wednesday 6th May

Hello 😁hope you are all well.

Today’s counting in 2s will be up to 30. Use the arm pattern to help with your counting. The part between 20 and 30 will be the slowest as we count this bit the least but keep practising.

Adding on 2- hopefully we’re getting faster at doing this now, try and do them today without the number line. Can you remember them? 5+2= 6+2= 1+2= 3+2= 7+2= 4+2= 8+2= should be easy as it’s a number bond to 10.

Today’s Fact Family is going to start with one of the subtraction sentences. Can you find the answer and then do the 4 number sentences for the Fact Family- 2 subtraction and 2 addition. 7-5=

When doing the subtraction sentences we are crossing 10 today. So if we have 16-7= the children take away 6 which takes them to 10. They then have 1 more to take away and it gets to the answer of 9. Don’t worry if the children don’t quite understand why we are going to 10 first. They will hopefully start to understand this more as they work with the larger numbers. They can continue to use a number line to count backwards. 15-7= 13-5= 14-5=  18-9=

Our Phonics activity looks at the split digraph i_e. Have a go at practising these words in both your reading and spelling today. 

Tuesday 5th May

Hi everyone 😁

For our CLIC counting today we are counting in 2s using the arm pattern to help. See if you can count quicker between 10 and 20, as we don’t usually count this part in 2s, it tends to be slower.

Learn Its are adding on 2 to a number. Again you can use a number line but we’re trying to do them from memory and having a quick recall. 5+2= 7+2= 1+2= 9+2= 6+2= 4+2=

Work out the number sentence answer and then make your Fact Family 6+3=

Our calculations are taking away so we count backwards on the number line. Have a go at these 15-4= 16-5= 12-1= 19-6= 


Our Phonics activity carries on our learning from yesterday looking at o_e. Have a read of the part of the story below. Can you spot any o_e words? Write a list of them, do you notice anything about where the o_e is in the words? 



Monday 4th May

Good morning everyone, our Phonics activity looks at the o_e split digraph in words. Have a read and see if you can sort the words you find with the o_e or words you find with the oa in words.

In our CLIC counting this week we are counting in 2s up to 20. Use the arm pattern as we did previously to help. 2 is left arm straight out

                           4 is right arm straight out

                           6 is left arm across the chest hand pointing up to the shoulder 

​​​​​​                           8 is right arm across the chest pointing up to the shoulder

                           10 is both hands on the head

                           12 is as 2 left arm straight out. Etc

See if the children can remember the pattern, we have done this at school.

Learn Its are adding on 2. At first the children can use a number line to help but they should be aiming to do this from memory and have a quick recall. 5+2= 3+2= 7+2= 1+2= 4+2=

It’s Nothing New is Fact Families again. Work out the answer and then do the 4 number sentences 4+5=

Calculation this week looks at subtraction. The children can draw themselves a number line up to 20 and then count backwards. Try these 16-4= 19-3= 17-2= 15-3=     

Friday 1st May

Good morning everyone 😁nearly the weekend!
To round off the counting this week, we are counting backwards from 150. Again, choose 3 or 4 sets of numbers to count between.

What are the doubles of the numbers to 10+10? I’m hoping we’re getting really quick at the answers now.

Todays Fact Family is 5+2= As yesterday, find the answer and then write the 4 sentences for the family.

We’re going to share all the numbers today. Draw 4 circles and then share the dots- 8, 12, 16 and then 20. How many are shared for each one?

😊until Monday.

In our Phonics, we are carrying on looking at the i_e digraph.  Have a look at my poem, can you find the i_e words and underline them? Practise your spelling of the different words using the i_e digraph.

Thursday 30th April

The last day of April, can you believe it? Our phonics activity today focuses in on the i_e split digraph. Can you unscramble the words to match the pictures? See if you can write some silly or serious sentences using the i_e words.

Counting today will be backwards from 120. It seems harder counting in the hundreds but remind the children we are just adding ‘ one hundred and...’ in front of each number. Choose 3 or 4 number sections to count between, including maybe 110 to 95.

Find the doubles of all the numbers up to 10+10. Try them in order and then mix up the order for some.

Fact Family today is 2+4= Find the answer and then write the 4 number sentences.

We are dividing by drawing circles on paper again today. Draw 4 circles and then share 16 dots and then try 20 dots. How many dots are in each circle?

Until tomorrow ☺️

Wednesday 29th April

Good morning! Our Phonics activity today finishes off our activities linked to a_e. 

Have a good look at the picture below. Can you write some sentences about the picture using the a_e words? Post them in our Facebook group, we would love to see them! 

We’re counting back from 99 today. Remember to be careful when crossing those tens into the next set. Choose 3 sets of numbers for counting between.

You should be getting quicker at finding the doubles now. Ready for today’s- double 2, double 5, double 9, double 1, double 7, double 4, double 3, double 6, double 8 and double 10.

Write the Fact Family for 1+3=4. Remember 4 number sentences, 2 addition and 2 subtraction.

We are dividing again today but this time on paper. Draw 4 circles and share 8 dots between them, them 12 dots between them. The number of dots has to be equal in each circle. Write down how many dots are shared in each.

Tuesday 28th April

Hello everyone 😁hope you’re all ok and raring to go!

Today we’re counting backwards from 50. Again, let the children write the numbers and they can then count ‘ the right way ‘ to check they’ve not missed any numbers and they’re in the right order. Give 3 lots of numbers between two points eg 48 to 33.

How quickly can you recall the doubles? Double 3, double 8, double 5, double 1, double 9, double 4, double 2, double 6, double 10 and double 7.

Can you do your own Fact Family using 2+3=5? Remember there are 2 addition and 2 subtraction sentences.

Find some objects again to share. Each group has to be equal. Share 8 objects, then 12, 16 and 20 objects, each shared between 4 people. How many does each person have?


In Phonics today we are continuing our work looking at the split digraph a_e. I have a list of ingredients that I want to use. Can you find the 'real' words using the a_e? Write a new list of ingredients for me.



Monday 27th April

Good morning! Our Phonics activities this week will look at the split digraphs a_e (as in cake) and i_e (as in line). Today we are going to start with a_e....

Have a read of the words below using the a_e. Can you find the ones that match the pictures?


This week we are counting backwards. We will be counting from 30 today, make sure that you are careful not to miss out any numbers and use the right ten when crossing numbers eg 51, 50, 49. Write the numbers down as the children can count ‘ the right’ way to check numbers are right. Do this with 3 sets of numbers eg 23 to 15.

Learn Its are carrying on quick recall of doubles. This week we are adding 8+8 and 9+9, the children should already know 10+10. What is double 4, double 7, double 1, double 5, double 8, double 6, double 3, double 2, double 10 and double 9?
It’s Nothing New looks at Fact Families. We are going to use number sentences that we’ve done from Learn Its. Fact Families have 4 number sentences, 2 addition and 2 subtraction.

5+3=8 this is the first addition number sentence 

3+5=8 this is the second addition number sentence, it is a switcher

8-3=5 this is the first subtraction sentence, the biggest number in the number sentence goes first

8-5=3 this is last number sentence and is a subtraction switcher across the equals sign.

Have a go at your own Fact Family with 3+4=7.

Calculation this week is looking at sharing objects- division. Find some objects around the house to do this blocks, Lego, crayons, marbles etc. Share 8 objects, then 12 objects, then 16 between 4 people. Make sure everyone has an equal amount. ☺️

Friday 24th April

Finishing off our work on 'ay' in Phonics this week, we have a challenge for you! I would like you to write me a silly sentence using some of our 'ay' words from the week and draw a picture to go with it!

For example my silly sentence is Today I sprayed clay all over the place.

 Parents take some photos and send them to us on the Maun Community Group on Facebook...

Counting today will cover the numbers between 1 and 1000. Choose some numbers for the children to count between.

How fast can you do the doubles? Double1, double7, double4, double6, double2, double5 and double3.

What’s the number to get to the next 10? 45… 48… 43… 49… 41… 42… 46… 47…
Make the groups and don’t forget to write how many there are altogether. 3 lots of 4, 5 lots of 2, 2 lots of 4, 3 lots of 3 and 4 lots of 3.

Thursday 23rd April

Hello everyone ☺️
Our counting is numbers between 500 and 700 today. Again give the children two numbers to count between and do this with 3 or 4 different ones.

Learn Its - how fast can they recall the doubles? 2+2 5+5 7+7 1+1 3+3 6+6 4+4

It’s Nothing New - add onto the ones number to get to 50 - 48… 45… 41… 47… 40… 42…
The calculations are continuing with grouping objects. 2 lots of 1, 2 lots of 5, 2 lots of 2, 2 lots of 4, 2 lots of 3. Don’t forget to write at the side how many there are altogether.


Our phonics activity carries on with the 'ay' sound in words.  Have a look at the word cards below. Some of them are real words and some are nonsense/monster words. Can you read them and sort them into real or monster words? Have a go at writing the real words into sentences. 

Wednesday 22nd April

Good morning! Carrying on our 'ay' work in Phonics this week, we are going to look at words that use the 'ay'. What do these pictures show? Can you spell the word? Which ones use the 'ay' sound?  Can you come up with any 'ay' words of your own?

Hello everyone ☺️
For our counting work in CLIC today we will be looking at numbers between 300 and 500. Again choose two numbers to count between and try this in three or four different places eg 388 to 402.

Try to get the Learn Its into your memory so that you can recall them quickly. Double 7, double 2, double 4, double 6, double 1, double 5, double 3.

What is the number needed to add to get to 50? 41… 48… 47… 42… 46… 43…
The calculations today continue with groups of objects. Today’s is 5 lots of 2, 5 lots of 3, 5 lots of 5, 5 lots of 1.

Have a great day.

Tuesday 21st April

Good morning! Today's phonics activity carries on our learning about the 'ay' sound in words. Have a read of our postcard, how many 'ay' words can you see? Can you have a practise afterwards of spelling some of our 'ay' words? 

Hello everyone ☺️
CLIC this morning carries on with counting 3 digit numbers. Today we will count between 200 and 300. Again, pick two numbers to count between eg 245 and 258. Do this for three or four different ones to count between.

Learn It’s are doubles. Can you remember the doubles for these: 3, 5, 7, 2, 4, 6 and 1.

Which number do we need to get to 50. Try these 43… 45… 49… 41… 40… 46…
Can you draw these groups and say how many there are altogether? 3 lots of 2, 3 lots of 1, 3 lots of 4, 3 lots of 3.

Monday 20th April

Hello everyone!

We hope that you had a good break and enjoyed some of the lovely weather in your gardens ☺️As promised, we will be putting CLIC and phonics on here daily to help with children’s learning. Here we go!

This week we will be counting with the bigger numbers, those with 3 digits. Today we will look at numbers between 100 and 200. Choose two numbers and see if they can count between those numbers eg between 132 and 145. Give the children a few different ones to count between.

Doubles- the children should already be able to recall all the doubles to 5+5, we are now going to add in 6+6 and 7+7.

This next job uses the children’s knowledge of making numbers to 10. They will need to look at the ones digit to see which number goes with it to make 10 eg we will be going to 50 so if we have 42, the answer is 8, because 2 and 8 make up to the next multiple of 10, which in this case is 50. See if you can do these: 44… 49… 43… 46… 47…
This part looks at the beginnings of multiplication. The children start to see groups of objects and the language of ‘lots of’ helps them to see this. In the attached photo you can see there are 4 groups of 3 dots and the language used shows what has been done so there are 4 lots of 3. Make sure that the children remember to share the dots equally, this is very important.

Have a go at 4 lots of 2, 4 lots of 4 and 4 lots of 1.

Our Phonics activity today is looking at 'ay'. We will be focusing on this all week. 

To begin with, have a go at this game. Using a dice (or a dice on google) see what you roll and what you need to read. Can you spot any of the words you read in your books this week?

Have a lovely day 😁

Friday 3rd April

Here is today’s phonics activity, linking to our learning about the ‘au’ in words. Here is a grid of words that use ‘au’, can you find which ones are real words and which are nonsense words? 

Hello everyone 

Group and sort out these two digit numbers- 63, 61, 75, 70, 16, 68, 72, 14, 15, 66, 73, 78.

Find the halves of these numbers without using your hands to help 8, 2, 10, 6 and 4.

Work out these addition number sentences using the part part whole to work it out. You can use counters as well as numbers in the part part whole circles if you need to. Remember the biggest number ( the answer) will go in the circle at the top. 5+4= 7+2= 6+2= 4+3= 2+5= 5+1= 2+7=.

Have a good rest over the next couple of weeks and we’ll put more CLIC and phonics work on here after the holiday. See you soon 😁

This is a reminder with some examples of using part part whole.

Thursday 2nd April

Today's phonics activity carries on our work looking at 'aw'. Have a look at the wordcards below. Can you sort them into real words and monster (nonsense) words? 

Have a go at grouping and ordering these two digit numbers - 18, 12, 41, 94, 97, 49, 47, 17, 15, 93, 45, 91, 40.

Using what you know for half of 4, 8, 10, 2 and 6, can you work out half of 400, 800, 1000, 200 and 600?

Use the ten frame (from the photo or you can draw your own) to work out these number sentences 5+2=, 6+3=, 7+1=, 4+5=, 6+2=, 4+3= do you need to use the ten frame to work the last one out? Whose number is this?

Wednesday 1st April

Hello everyone 😁

We’re continuing ordering two digit numbers. Put them into groups and then remember to look at the ones in each number so they are in the right order. 55, 58, 17, 12, 51, 72, 70, 19, 56, 11, 77.

Use what you know to find half of 20, 100, 60, 40 and 80.

Use a number line up to 10 to work out the number sentences. You can draw the number line yourself and remember to look which way you need to jump on the number line. 5+2= 7+1=

2+4= 3+5= 6+3= 8+2= even though you can use a number line to work out the last one, you shouldn’t need to- why?


Today's phonics activity is about the 'or' alternative spelling in words. Can you look at the pictures and practise spelling the words? Have a go at putting the words into some silly sentences!

Tuesday 31st March

Good morning everyone! Today our phonics activity links to the ‘au’ spelling of our sound this week. Have a read of the postcard, can you find all the words using ‘au’? Ask a grownup to help you practise spelling the different words too. 

CLIC work 

Can you order these two digit numbers into two groups. Remember to look at the tens first and then the ones. 29, 26, 82, 23, 85, 89, 28, 21.

What are the halves of these numbers? 10, 8, 6, 4, 2.

Now use what you know to work out half of 400, 600, 200, 800.

Write number sentences to make 10. Eg 5+5, 7+3, 2+8. How many sentences can you do? Try to do this as quick as you can.

Monday 30th March

Good morning everyone! Our phonics activity this week links to our learning about ‘aw’ and the alternative spellings of this sound in words. Today we have a game about the ‘aw’ in words. Avoid those snakes!

Our counting job this week in CLIC is to sort and order two digit numbers. Remember to look at the tens first to see which group they belong to and then the ones to put them in order. Not all the numbers will be there so only order the ones that are given.

45, 33, 37, 48, 42, 39, 44.

Find the halves of these numbers- 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. You can use your fingers to help but the best way is if you know it straight away.

Now you’ve done halves of those numbers, can you use what you know to find half of 20, 80, 60 and 40.

Friday 27th March

Hello everyone!

To round off this week’s CLIC we are going to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Quick fire partner numbers to make 10.

Using counters for repeated adding. Make 2+2+2+2, 5+5+5+5, 10+10+10, 2+2+2, 5+5+5 etc

Come and look next week for more CLIC activities, have a lovely weekend.


Our Phonics activity this week rounds off our learning about ue/ew. Have a look at the different 'ew' words. Which are real words and which are monster (nonsense) words?

Thursday 26th March

Good Morning! Our Phonics activity for today is about the 'ew' in words. We have learnt about this in our Phonics sessions before closing. If you don't have a dice handy, Google can help you find an online one! Whatever you roll, see if you can read the word. When you have read them all, ask a grown-up to read the word you roll and see if you can spell them correctly. Don't forget to use your robot arms!

Our CLIC work today continues from the previous days.

Count in 2s using the arm pattern from yesterday. Can you count up to 30 in 2s today?

Count in 5s up to 50 as well.

Quick answer number partners that make 10. Hopefully children are getting faster at remembering the partner number to make 10.

We are going to be doing repeated adding today. This is the start of multiplying. So starting with 2+2+2 to make 6. Use any counters you might have to do this, coins, stones, tins, tissues anything that your child can use to do this practically. Also have a go at 5+5+5, 2+2 and 5+5.

Wednesday 25th March

Good morning everyone! Our Phonics activity for today...

Spell the words. Can you find the words that need the 'ue'? See if you can use the words in some sentences. 

CLIC today will have some repetition from yesterday. Please keep doing this as it helps to put everything into children’s long term memory.

Counting in 10s and choosing different single digits to start from and count down the column eg7, 17, 27, 37, 47, 57 etc, remember the 100 square is there for you to use from yesterday.

Count in 2s up to 20. Ask the children to show you the arm actions to go with it. 
2- left arm straight out

4- right arm straight out

6- left arm across the chest

8- right arm across the chest

10- touch head with both hands

12- left arm straight out again

and carry on.

Quick fire number partners to make 10. Give a number, your child to give you the number that goes with it to make 10.

Number sentences to add on 2. 6+2, 3+2, 5+2, 4+2 etc. Use a number line to work them out but also try to remember them and do them from memory.

Tuesday 24th March

Good Morning everyone!
Our CLIC today is counting in 10s up to 100. Then choose one of the one digit numbers and count down that column eg 4 so count 4, 14, 24, 34, 44, etc. You can use the 100 square to help with this.

Find the partners to the numbers to make 10. So 7+3, 6+4, 2+8. Give the children one of the numbers and then ask them to give you the partner number.

Adding on 2- number sentences adding on 2. 1+2, 3+2, 4+2 etc Children can do this on a number line but also need to try and do this as a quick recall to know the answer straight away.


Our Phonics activity today is linked to our work looking at 'ue'. Using the postcard, can you find the different 'ue' words? See if you can practise spelling them and spotting them in your reading today. 


Phonics Activity- Monday 23rd March

We have looked at the alternative spellings of the ‘oo’ sound in Phonics recently. Have a go at this activity reading the words and drawing pictures to match. Can you find some of these words in your reading this week?
