For numeracy this week we would like the children to continue to follow the White Rose home learning.  


This week they are looking at money. Here is a song they can listen to first about finding halves and quarters.


Go to Summer Term - Week 11 (w/c 6th July) and complete the lessons there.     



There is a video for each lesson and then a worksheet that you can print or write your answers on a piece of paper. Do 1 lesson per day.   


Lesson 1 – Find a half (1)

Lesson 2 – Find a half (2)

Lesson 3 – Find a quarter (1)

Lesson 4 – Find a quarter (2)

Lesson 5 – Friday Challenge

When they have practised, they can do some money games on the 2Dos on Purple Mash.

Home Learning for Week Beginning 13th July

by Miss Bennett and Miss De Sanctis

Last week's topic was dragons.


We learnt how dragons all look different and have different talents.

We thought about what we would like dragons to look like and any special skills they might have. We then made papier mache dragons.

We would like you to design and draw your own dragon at home this week.

If you have recyclables around the house, see if you can use them to make your dragon. We would love to see pictures of you creations, so please send them to our email addresses.


For Computing this term, we are learning about coding. Please look at the following video on Purple Mash and then complete the task on Purple Mash.  


Please log onto Purple Mash to complete this week's home learning tasks. 



We would also like you to do the following each day:  

Reading – Read 20 minutes a day.   



Phonics – 20 minutes a day.  



PE – Keep fit for 30 minutes a day.  



The Body Coach is doing a PE session every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 9am.  



Please comment on the blog with any questions you have about the work and to let us know how your children are doing with the tasks and their home learning. You can also send us photos of any other activities you have been doing to our work email addresses and we can share it on the blog. 


We will award DOJOs to children who complete tasks, share their learning on the blog or send us photos. If you send us your email address, then you can follow their DOJO progress at home.  

Our email addresses are:  

1SB - sbennett@oldmoat.manchester.sch.uk
