8:55 - 9:55


Adding and subtracting tens

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

You will need your ten frames at the ready for today's lesson.

We will be making groups of ten today and adding or subtracting more groups of ten.

We will be able to solve problems like 50 + 20 = .

Fortunately, we can use our understanding of the value of these numbers to help us add them together. As fifty = five tens and 20 = two tens, we can easily add five tens and two tens to find seven tens in total. Seven tens are 70 so 50 + 20 = 70.

We can also do the same with subtraction.


Task 1:

Use your ten frames to help you solve the following addition and subtraction questions.


Task 2:

Mrs Wildman has the answer 40 but has forgotten what the question was. Can you think of 3 different questions that Mrs Wildman could have solved to give her the answer 40?


10:35 - 11:35


Using the word "and" to join sentences.

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We will continue to practice using the word and to join two simple sentences into a longer compound sentence.

Last time we learned that when we join two sentences together, you need to take out the full stop at the end of the first sentence and the capital letter at the beginning of the second sentence.

Finn went to the shop. He chose a new toy.

Task 2:

Remember that we will only need a capital letter at the start of the whole sentence and not after the and.

Wellbeing activities

Please see some suggestions below of some activities you can do as part of of our mental health week.

Daily Emotions Diary

Why not start a new diary for this week with a focus on how you feel.

You could detail how you felt at various points of the day and think about why you felt that way. Was it because you liked the thought of a particular activity.

If you were not happy at a particular moment, what cheered you up?


Acts of Kindness

Acts of kindness always are a great idea for our own and others mental health.

Try to think of at least five kind acts you could do for someone at home.

Could you do one every day this week?


A to Z of Emotions

It would be difficult to be able to speak about our emotions if we cannot describe them.

Therefore can you think of a different emotion for every letter of the alphabet?

For example, for A, you could list ‘anger’.

See how many you can think of.


Nature Art

Whilst out on a walk, why not collect some items along the way that interest you. When you get home with them, could you make a piece of art out of them?


Be A Dance Teacher

Plan a dance routine to a song that you love and try to teach it to someone at home.


Happy Playlist and Dance

Do you have a song or two that always make you smile? Why not write them down into a playlist ready for sharing tomorrow morning. If you have a way of playing them, stick them on and have a good old dance around your lounge, as they say… “dance like no one is watching!"



If you enjoy baking you could rustle up a fantastic cake or cookie. Perhaps you could learn how to make jam on toast or make your own bowl of cereal.


Box of Happiness

You could use an old shoe box and decorate it to make it you special “Box of Happiness”. Put all of the things that you love and that make you smile. You could then look at all the things in there when you are feeling scared or worried.
