Hello lovely people! We are nearly at the end of term now and hope that you have been enjoying lots of the learning activities on this page. Please continue to carry on with your learning over the summer holidays. As we have said before, just a few minutes practising your reading and phonics every day mixed with a bit of maths will keep those clever brains ticking over and all ready for year 2!! How exciting!!


We all follow a maths scheme called White Rose and every week they are putting up some fabulous lessons to follow. Have a look at this link. It's all about fractions!

Have a go at these common exception word activity sheets!

Have a chat with your grown up and see if you have any sugar, flour, jam or flour. Practise writing the words in the food before you do the sheet. Have a go at writing in pen, pencil or chalk too. You could even use a stick in the mud if you can get outside. smiley

PHONICS. Please remember to read and practise your phonics EVERY DAY. We have found a great phonics program to reinforce the phonics and it looks great fun!! - Click here youtube - Ruth Miskin training

All Pumpkin class have covered sets 1 and 2 sounds and are currently working on set 3. There are plenty of lessons for all the stages. 


Here is a link to a website that we often use to make our learning even more exciting. We understand that you won't be able to go outside as much as you would like but many of these activities can be done inside, in a garden or on a daily exercise walk. It's always best to learn using all your senses so why not give some of these a go? At the moment our favourite activity is the A to Z journey. We also love the teddy bear assault course!

Link to a blog on maths games:



One more and one less

Get some raisins, grapes, cereal pieces. Place some on a plate. If the grown up with you says ‘one more’, add one more and say what number you have now. If they say ‘one less’, eat one and count how many you have left.

Ask a grown up to give you some toys. Count how many you have. Can you put out another group of toys so you have one more and then one less?

Build a tower with bricks. Can you build another tower with one more brick? Can you build another with one less brick?



Make your own tens frames or print some off the internet and use counters, or anything you can find to use instead of counters (raisins, grapes, cereal pieces etc…..). Choose 2 numbers 1-digit numbers to add together , e.g. 7 + 5. On your tens frame set out 7 on one thing, e.g. raisins and then add another 5 of something else e.g. cereal pieces. Have you filled a tens frame? How many are in the next tens frame? What is your answer? Try this adding different numbers. You can also draw them out.

Link to video on using tens frames to add  (2nd activity on video)




Use your tens frames and counters from the addition activity to practise subtracting. Make the first number using the tens frame and subtract the number of counters/ pieces to work out how many you now have. Try it with different numbers.

Watch the 3rd activity on the video:



Number bonds to 10

Practise your number bonds to 10 by playing the ‘Total of 10’ card game

Can you think of any new rules for playing this game?

Link to the ‘Total of 10’ card game:




Represent different numbers

Make your own tens frames or print some off the internet and use counters, or anything you can find to use instead of counters (raisins, grapes, cereal pieces etc…..) Start by using one tens frame to make numbers up to 10, then use a second tens frame to show numbers up to 20. You can also draw them out.

Link to video on using tens frames and counters to make numbers (see 2nd activity)



Fractions of shapes

Find things you can cut into halves and quarters, e.g a pizza, a cake, an apple.

Ask your grown up to draw some circles on a page. Can you split them into halves and quarters?

Link to video on fractions of shapes:



Time to o’clock and half past

Ask your grown up to draw a number line from 1-12 and cut out an arrow (this will be your hour hand). Each number represents an hour on the clock, so if the arrow points to 1 it is showing 1 o’clock. Position your arrow on different numbers and read out the time. Then put your arrow half way between 2 numbers. This represents half past, so if your arrow is half way between 2 and 3, it is half past 3.

Next draw a round clock and do the same with just one hand. Once you are happy telling the time with one hand, you can make a 2nd longer hand. This is your minute hand. Where should it point for o’clock? Where should it point for half past?


Link to video on telling the time to o’clock and half past:




Follow a recipe to bake some biscuits or cakes. Can you weigh out all the ingredients yourself?

Find food in your kitchen, such as a tin of beans. Can you find something which is heavier and something which is lighter?



Ask your group up for some money. Can you identify all the coins?

Can you make 10p? Can you find a different way to make 10p, using different coins? Try this for different amounts of money



Find something in your house you could use to measure with. They all need to be the same size e.g. counters, lego bricks, paper clips etc…. Choose different objects, such as a pen or book. Estimate how many counters etc… long it will be and then use them to measure what it actually is. Can you find different things round your house which are longer/shorter.



Make sure you are reading for a minimum of 20 mins a day. Write a little comment in your reading journal about the book you've read. 


Read an ebook or have it read to you

Choose a level, an area of interest and then a book.  Look out! Some can be read to you too.  There are also some fun videos to watch.  Remember always ask an adult to help you and supervise you on the internet.
