Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Monday 11th May

Hi Carle class. We hope you had a lovely weekend! Thank you for all the lovely emails we had last week. We know how hard it is to keep your child learning whilst many of you are still working yourselves, so thank you! Today is milkshake Monday. Read on to find out why….



Remember to practise your sounds daily. RWI will be holding daily virtual lessons for children to practise their sounds:


Set 1 sounds at 9:30am or 12:30pm

Set 2 sounds at 10:00am or 1:00pm


They have updated these lessons to include word time for set 1 speed sounds and spelling for set 2 and 3. There is also “Storytime with Nick” three times a week and some poems that your child can learn and perform.



Last week we read the story Oliver’s vegetables. Do you remember what happened? This week we are reading another story about Oliver. It’s Oliver’s milkshake. You can find the story here …..


What happens in the story? Where does Oliver go? What does he see? What flavour fruit does he choose for his milkshake? What words does he use to describe his milkshake?

Today we want you to design your own flavour milkshake. Draw a picture and label what is in your milkshake. What flavour is it? Can you write a sentence to describe your milkshake underneath?  


Don’t forget to make sure the letters you write are clear. Have you remembered your finger spaces between each word? Our aim is that everyone can read our fabulous writing so make sure it’s readable.



We have attached a little reading comprehension activity today. If you can’t print it out read the sentences and then draw the picture to match.




Morning children! Lets start our maths off recalling doubles. Double 1 is 2 ( get your child to put 1 on each hand to show that it is the same on each hand). Double 2 is 4 ( get your child to put 2 on each hand to show that it is the same on each hand) Double 3 is 6 ( get your child to put 3 on each hand to show that is the same amount on each hand). Recap counting to 20 forwards and backwards. Get your child to add a movement to each number such as jumps, claps, star jumps or patting their knees.


Lets finish off our maths with getting some 3D real life objects around your house. Get your child to look at the object, what 3D shape does it look like? Why? What 2D shapes can you see on your 3D shape. Talk about the 2D shapes you can see. Can you find an object in the house that is a cube, cuboid? Can you find an object in your house that has a square, triangle, circle on it? It is important that these are real life objects.

Watch and join in with the 2D shape song on the link below. Can you make actions to go with the shapes?


Enjoy the rest of your learning 😊


It’s milkshake time! In our story from Literacy Oliver makes his own milkshake. Can you have a go at making your own milkshake or smoothie? Experiment with different ingredients and flavours using whatever you have at home. Send us a picture or let us know how you get on. What is your favourite? What does it taste like?


If you don’t have the ingredients today, don’t panic. Make a collage or model of what you want your milkshake to be like and have a go at some other time.
