Wednesday 16th December


Remember to do at least 20 minutes of reading. If you are running out of interesting things to read at home, you could have a go at reading and answering the Emperor Penguin text that is attached to this blog. There are also some extra activities to keep you busy if you need them. 


Watch Mr Ms learning video all about adding 2-digit numbers where crossing a 10s barrier is involved. Then use this skill to find the missing values in the bar models attached to this post.

Now watch the learning video for subtracting 2-digit numbers. Then use this skill to find the missing values in the bar models attached to this post.

If this is taking a lot of time and you need to take a break, feel free to spread this out across 2 days and complete it on Thursday.


If you have not done so already, watch Mr M’s learning video from Tuesday and write your own version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. We have added the help sheet in case you missed it yesterday. 

Now think about how you want to record and present your song. Do you want to write and illustrate it? Do you want to turn it in to a little book with 12 pages? Do you want to say or sing your song and record it? Whatever you chose, we would love to see/hear it!


Remember to tune into the Key Stage 1 Virtual Nativity ay 5:30pm. A link will be sent to you via ParentPay. If you are looking for an extra Christmas activity to be completed with an adult, why not try to make some hot chocolate spoons so you and your family can enjoy them while watching the Nativity. The recipe and instructions, as well as pictures of Mr M and his family making them, are attached to this post.

As always, if you have any problems with the activities outlined in this post, please do not hesitiate to contact us via the class email address.
