Numbers 0-20 written out on a long strip of card - (this is your number line).
Monday 22^{nd} June
English:
Starter: Practise saying the alphabet (say it slowly). These are the names of the letters. Now see if you can write down the letters as you say the alphabet. How many letters are there in the alphabet?
Main activity: Look at the map of Africa Alive (see attached map) - Talk to your adult about the animals you can see and tell them why you would like to see them.
Reading two syllable words - Can you sort the animal words below into those with 1 or 2 syllables? Remember to clap out the syllables as you say the words (syllables are the chunks you hear not the individual sounds).
owl, lion, zebra, giraffe, fox, otter, cheetah, rhino, ostrich, goat, cow, ostrich, meerkat and sheep.
Here is a clip to watch if you are not sure what a syllable is

Maths: (Today you will need your number cards 0-20 and 20 small counting objects.)
Starter: Practise writing numbers 0-20. Ask your adult to pick one of the 0-20 number cards and to say the number on the card without showing you the card. Write the number down - check it is correct. (If this is hard try with numbers 0-10 first.)
Main activity: Subtraction - Tell your adult what you know about subtraction. Talk about:
- how subtraction is the same as take away, taking away, minus, the sign - and less than,
- how we use subtraction if we are asked how many do you have left?
- how we can use counting back to help us subtract;
- how we have less than we started with if we subtract;
- and how the numbers get smaller if we subtract.
Practise subtracting using your counting objects. Put the number cards 11-20 in a pile and cards 0-10 in a separate pile. Pick a card from the 11-20 pile - say you pick 15. Count out 15 objects and turn over a number card (say 4). Write down 15 - 4 =. See if you can take away 4 from your pile of 15 objects to work out the answer and complete the sum. Yes - 15 - 4 = 11. Repeat with different number cards.
Now see if you can use the counting objects to work out the subtraction problems below:
- There are 9 owls sat in a tree 4 fly away.
How many owls are left sitting in the tree?
- Kai has 12 sweets. He gives 6 to his friend John.
How many sweets does Kai have left?
- Meerkat has 17 bugs. He eats 5 of the bugs.
How many bugs are left?
You can also try to write down the calculations.
Topic:
What do you know about Africa? Tell your adult all the things you know about Africa and then think of something you would like to find out about Africa. Ask your adult to write down your question and see if you can find the answer over the next few weeks.
You can start by looking at this information clip on YouTube.
There is also a Go Jetters episode all about Africa that you might want to watch. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000814s/go-jetters-series-3-5-the-continent-of-africa
Tuesday 23^{rd} June
English:
Starter: Practise spelling the words - I, no, to, go and into. Adult says the words. See how quickly you can write them down correctly. Try saying them in a different order.
Main activity: Recap the trigraph ‘ure’ - watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_2Oju8WKW4
Ask your adult to write out these words on separate pieces of paper (you will need these again later in the week):
sure, cure, pure, lure, secure, manure, picture, vulture
See if you can sound out the words and blend the sounds to read them. Remember to ask your adult if you don’t know what they mean. Then see if you can say them in a sentence.
Just for fun you could watch this clip from BBC Bitesize.

Maths:
Main activity: Talk about what you remember about subtraction from yesterday.
Pyramid subtraction: This is how you are going to use subtraction to find the missing number on the pyramid.
Example:
10 | |
6 | ? |
Start with the largest number 10 and subtract the number on the bottom row 6 to find the missing number 10 - 6 = ? You could use your number line - start at 10 and count back 6 or use your counting objects - take 10 objects and take 6 away then count how many you have left which is the answer. 10 - 6 = 4
Now see if you can find the all the missing numbers on the Pyramid missing number 1 (Subtraction) sheet (see attached sheet) by using your subtracting skills. You can just write down the answers or try writing the number sentences. Try thinking up your own missing number pyramids.
Topic:
Look at the Africa Alive Power Point (see attached file). Now design/draw/make your own African Safari Park. Which animals will you have in your park? Will you have a train to take you round the park? Will there be other things to see or do?
To see more animals at Africa Alive go to: https://www.africa-alive.co.uk/zsea/animal-sponsorship/
Wednesday 24^{th} June
English:
Starter: Read your reading book
Main activity Practise reading words with the ure sound in them. Using the ure word cards from yesterday. Hide them around the house and/or garden. When your adult calls out a word see how quickly you can find it. (Remember to take care and be safe.) When you have found them a couple of times collect up the cards and add the sound buttons to each word. Don’t forget that ure is a trigraph so you need to put a line under all the letters in the sound ure.
Maths:
Main activity: Missing number subtraction calculations: using the strategies we have practised this week. See if you can work out the missing number in these subtraction calculations
- 9 - 5 = ?
- 10 - 3 = ?
- 14 - 2 = ?
- 12 - 4 = ?
- 19 - 7 = ?
Now you could try some of your own. Don’t forget you always need to put the largest number at the start of a subtraction.
Topic:
Look at the train and truck on the Africa Alive PowerPoint. Draw a vehicle to take you round your Safari Park. How are you going to decorate it? Will you use an animal pattern like the Zebra pattern on the Africa Alive vehicles or another animal pattern - say like a cheetah or a giraffe? How many people will be able to fit inside your vehicle?
Thursday 25^{th} June
English:
Starter: Recap vowel sounds: a, e, i, o, u - When you say them using the individual letter sounds they are the short vowel sounds. If you use their letter names they are the long vowel sounds. Join in with the vowel song on the clip - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TjcT7Gto3U
Main activity:
Read the words with ‘k’ sound at the end:
park, duck, leek, took, tank. What do you notice about the sound k? Sometimes it is a k and other times it is a ck. Can you spot when you use k or ck?
Try reading the sentences below. See if you can spot the k sounds. Now see if you can find the vowel sounds (tip they may be digraphs). Is it a long or a short vowel sound? Which k do you use if it is a short vowel sound k or ck?
I go to the park to see a duck.
She took the book to her dad.
A fish was in the tank.
A leek is a plant not a rock.
Maths:
Starter: Lay out your number cards 0-20 in a line on the floor. Look away while your grown up turns five cards face down. Can you say which cards they are without looking. How do you know? Remember to explain how you know. For example: I know it is number 5 because 5 is one more than 4 or I know it is 5 because 5 comes before 6.
Main activity: Adding and subtracting word problems. Use any of the following things: counting objects, number line, number cards and/or your fingers to help you to work out the answers to the word problems below. You could also draw what happens.
- There were 8 people on the Africa Alive train. 4 got off the train at Lemur Island.
How many people were left on the train?
- Six meerkats were outside playing. 4 more came out to play.
How many meerkats were outside playing altogether?
- Harry was collecting stamps on his Africa Alive card. There were 12 to collect. So far he had collected 8 stamps on his card.
How many more did he need to collect to get them all?
- On the African Plains there were 5 ostriches and 6 zebras.
How many animals were there altogether?
Topic:
Look at the maps of Africa (see maps attached). Draw a picture of Africa and colour it in or make a collage by sticking coloured paper on an outline of the continent of Africa. What colour would the rainforest be or the desert or the mountains?
Friday 26^{th} June
English:
Starter: Practise all the sounds in your sounds book.
Main activity: Try reading the following two syllable words:
otter, bedroom, boxer, toothbrush, raindrop, hammer, carpark, ticket, farmyard, dragon.
See if you can find some things around the house and/or garden that have 1, or 2 syllables. You could sort them into 2 containers or have a go at writing them down. (Extension - See if you can you find things with more than 2 syllables.)
Maths:
Starter: Adding and Subtracting - See how quickly you can show the answers to the calculations below using your fingers to show the answers.
10 - 8 = ? 5 + 4 = ? 8 - 2 = ? 9 - 1 = ? 3 + 7 = ?
Main activity: Adding and subtracting to find missing numbers on the Missing Number Pyramid Sheet 2 (see sheet attached). You can use any method you like to find the missing numbers but remember the number at the top of the pyramid is always the largest one.
Topic:
Using your drawing of your Safari Park and the Africa Alive PowerPoint. Tell your grown-up about 4 of the animals from your safari park. Now write a sentence about each of the animals. Don’t forget to use a capital letter at the start and a full-stop at the end of every sentence.
