Using your mental maths skills (adding in your brain), can you figure out the answers to the Power Up question below? 


Check your answers by using real life objects to count e.g. your own fingers, pennies, Lego.



Today we are going to be thinking about our number bonds to 20. 


Vocab Check

Number Bond: how a number is split up into parts 

e.g. 1 + 9 = 10 

1 and 9 are a number bond to 10


Activity 1


How many number bonds to 20 can you make using your tens frame? Can you record these in your log. 


Top Tip: You could draw out your own tens frame to use, or you could use the interactive version below. Don't forget to use two different types/colours of objects to add numbers together. 


Take a look at the examples below. 


1 + 19 = 20

2 + 18 = 20


3 + 17= 20


What do you notice about the numbers? Can you spot a pattern? 


Activity 2


Can you create your own number bond to 20 rainbow? 



Take a look at the one below to help you. Please click on the link to see a larger version of the activity. 




Please watch the video below and practise forming this letter, in your lined exercise log. Please write the lower case letter 5 times and the capital letter 5 times. 


Top Tip: Make sure you are sat ready to write. Are your feet on the floor? Are you sat up straight? Is the paper in front of you straight? Is your chair tucked under all the way, if you are sat at a table?

Today we are going to be thinking about where we live in the world. 


Think about: What is the name of our area? Are we in a village, a town or a city? Where is our nearest big city?


Take a look at where our school is on Google Maps. Then zoom out until you can see the West Midlands, England and finally all of the United Kingdom.  Please click the link below to get started.,-2.0824665,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x4870998f619c793b:0x96770078b22830f1!8m2!3d52.5461111!4d-2.0802778


The United Kingdom (UK) is the name for the group of countries that we are part of. 


Please take a look at the map below. What do you notice? What do you see? What are the green parts called? What are the blue parts called? Which country do we live in?



In your logs please can you write down the numbers 1-4 in and the name of each country. Or if you are able to, you could print out the map and label each country in the box.


Can you point to/colour in the land? Can you point to/colour in the sea?





Here is the flag of the United Kingdom (UK). What colours can you see? What shapes? Have you seen this flag before? Where? When? 


Did you know that the UK flag is also known as the Union Jack?



Now take a look at the flags of the four countries of the UK by clicking the link below. Can you draw and colour each flag in your log? If you could design a new flag for the UK what would it look like? 

Playful Learning


This is time now for you to choose your own learning. You might want to make links to your learning today and continue your Geography skills by designing a new flag for England. You might want to build with lego, dance, role-play, exercise, bake or read a book. 


Be curious, ask questions and above all have fun! 

Picture News

Look at the picture below. 


What can you see? Who do you think these people might be? What do you think they could be doing? 



The people in the poster are clapping, playing music and holding up rainbows to say thank you to all the doctors, nurses and carers that have helped to look after all the people who have been poorly with coronavirus. People went outside their homes and clapped every Thursday evening during the first lockdown.

Did you join in with saying thank you to all the doctors and nurses? What did you do?

It has been in the news that the clap to say thank you has been brought back, but this time it is to say thank you to everyone who is helping during the coronavirus pandemic and is called the ‘Clap for Heroes’.


Who are the people helping us through the pandemic?

The people who are all working and doing their jobs to help us during the coronavirus pandemic are called key workers.

Can you think of some of the key worker jobs? What do people do in these jobs?
