6.7.20 This week in Maths we are going to learn to sequence events in chronological (time) order using these words - before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening. We'll learn to recognise, talk about and order the days of the week and months of the year.
- Lesson 1: Using first and next, before and after to order events.
- Lesson 2: Order the days of the week and use the language of today, yesterday and tomorrow.
- Lesson 3: Learn the months of the year in order and use a calendar to identify special events such as birthdays.
- Lesson 4: Measuring time in seconds (s) and minutes (s).
Lesson 1 Activity
Order a set of the pictures below using words like, first, next, then, after to explain the correct order of events or you could create your own set and share them with your teacher.
Lesson 2 Activity
Lesson 2 Part 2 Extension: Investigate the calendar - Using a 2020 calendar, answer these questions:
- How many days are there in a week?
- How many Tuesdays are there in February?
- What day does 23rd July fall on?
- How many days are there from Monday 6th July to the last day of the summer term?
- How many bank holiday Mondays are there in May?
- What day did or does your birthday fall on this year?
- How many weeks are there in a year?
Lesson 4: Measuring Time - In seconds (s) and minutes (min)
Step 1 - read all 5 challenges below and estimate (guess) how long each one will take in either seconds or minutes. Write these down.
How long do you think it would take to:
1) Draw 20 good rectangles on a piece of paper?
2) Run up and down your garden 10 times (or if in a flat - from your kitchen to your bed 10 times?
3) Write your name (backwards) yeniV airotciV srM?
4) Lay the table for lunch or tea?
5) Eat your lunch?
Step 2) Now use the timer or stopwatch to actually do these things. I wonder how close you will get to your estimate? (It doesn't matter if they are not close, this is part of learning to estimate).
This week in Maths we are learning about 3D shapes and their properties. We will be describing and naming them, sorting them and using them to make patterns.
- Lesson 1: Can I name and describe 3D shapes with Mrs O'Neill and then find and label 3D shapes?
- Lesson 2: Can I make a tally chart for 3D shapes? Watch Mrs O'Neill's demonstration.
- Lesson 3: Can I identify 3D shapes? Make a 3D junk model or colour in 3D shapes. Watch Mrs O'Neill's demonstration.
- Lesson 4: Can I make a pattern using 3D shapes and describe my pattern to an adult?
Lesson 1 activity.

This week (22nd June) we are learning about 2D shapes and their properties. We will be describing and naming them, sorting them and using them to make patterns.
- Lesson 1: Can I name and describe 2D shapes with Mrs Viney and then go on a 2D shape hunt in and around my home?
- Lesson 2: Can I sort 2D shapes into groups using Top Marks? Watch Mrs Viney's demonstration.
- Lesson 3: Can I colour in shapes using the instructional key to make pictures?
- Lesson 4: Can I make a pattern using 2D shapes and describe my pattern to an adult?
Lesson 1: Naming, describing and hunting for 2D shapes. Watch Mrs Viney's video below.
Lesson 4: Pattern making using shapes. Watch the video to demonstrate how patterns work. Search for some repeating patterns in your home and make your own patterns, either by 3D shape printing/potato printing or using the worksheets below to draw and colour a pattern.
If you have hama beads, you could try out repeating patterns with circles, squares, triangles and colours.
This week 15th June we are continuing our unit on Place Value to 100.
We will be:
- Lesson 1: looking at what happens to numbers when we count to 100
- Lesson 2: looking at numbers on a 100 square and counting forwards and backwards starting from different numbers
- Lesson 3: partitioning numbers into tens and ones
- Lesson 4: comparing numbers
- Lesson 5: ordering numbers
- Lesson 6: finding one more and one less

The Great Pet Sale
There are lots of maths activities that can link with this story:
- How many different combinations of pets can you buy with 10p? or 20p? or 50p?
- If you buy one pet how much change will you get from 10p? or 20p? (practise using your number pairs to 10 or 20 to help you)
- If you buy 8 tiny terrapins, how much will they cost? You can practise counting in 2s
- If you buy 5 platypus', how much will they cost? You can practise counting in 5s
- If you buy 4 boxes of assorted brown animals, how much will they cost? You can practise counting in 10s
