Work your way though the Phase 5 phonics recap booklet.

Try to do as much of it as you can without any help to see how much you've learnt!



We're on a Maths quest this week - all based around the Book - The Great Pet Sale.

If you don't have a copy of book at home, then watch along with the YouTube clip below.


The Great Pet Sale

The Great Pet Sale by Mick Inkpen. Which animal will I buy in the pet shop sale? Find out what is for sale and which animal follows us through the whole story.


Re-cap number bonds to 10 using the story.

How many different animal combinations can you buy for 10p?

Make a list of all the different options you can find.  Use the sheet below the video to help you - it has all the animals and prices on.



Investigate different combinations of animals you can buy.  Below I've included a link to a 100 square to help you.

Think about:

Which two animals would be the cheapest?

Which two animals would be the most expensive?

How much would all the animals cost you?



Let's practise doubles!

If you had two of every creature in the pet shop - how much would you have to pay to buy them both?


Write out the calculation for each of your doubles.  You can use the 100 square to help you with your adding.



Competition time!

Use the link below to access hit the button.

Choose the number bonds to 10 option and set yourself a target - can you beat it!  Good Luck!


Once you've beaten your target have a go at the number bonds to 20 or one of the other addition challenges.  If you're feeling really adventurous then return to the menu and have a go at doubles.



Happy Easter!  Have fun playing this Easter game.  You'll need your counting in 2's, 5's and 10's skills to help.  I have included the eggs and baskets but you can always find something at home instead of printing them off. 


Literacy-Topic (Science)


Share the story of Formidable Sid.  The powerpoint was too large to load so I've included the guided reading version.

Once you've read through it - have a go at answering the questions.  As always, I recommend trying the middle question set, but if you're up for a challenge then try the trickier one.


Have a go at sequencing the story - can you remember the story from yesterday?


Write a set of instructions to help Violet learn how to care for her pet.  Consider the following:


What Violet will need to help her look after her pet.

Where her pet should sleep

What her pet should eat/not eat

Healthy treats



Share the Easter Story powerpoint.


Look at the pictures and write inside the speech/thought bubbles to show what you think the characters in the story might be saying/feeling.


Choose one of the templates below and create your own Easter poem.


This week is all about protective behaviours.  Over the course of the week complete one of the following activities each day.


1 - Draw a picture of your 'safe place'.

Where is it?

Why do you feel safe here?

How do you feel after sending time here?

When you might you visit your safe place?


2.  Think about your network

Your network is a group of 5 people you can talk to.  Each person should be someone from the different places in your life e.g. School, home, wider family.


Draw around your hand - think of 5 people who you could talk to if you were feeling upset, scared or in need of someone to talk to.  Try to think of:

a person from school

a friend

someone from your home

someone from your wider family e.g. Grandparents/Aunts/Uncles


Write the name of these people along each finger.  Use the palm to write the names of any pets or teddies that you sometimes talk to or cuddle to make you feel better.


3.  My early warning signs

Use the template below to draw different emotions and how the effect you.  Think about how you feel when you are:

sad - e.g you cry

happy - you smile

excited - butterflies in your tummy

angry - you feel hot

scared - you shake


Draw these onto the template and label them, then write a sentence about each one of the emotions you've included and when you might feel like this.


4.  Share a story that focuses on emotions.  Discuss with a parent or carer:

The different emotions within the story?

Why the characters felt these emotions?

What happened as a result of the characters feeling the way they did?

Do you ever feel any of these emotions?


What would your advice be to different characters within the story?
