Wednesday 6th May



Good morning! Today is known as wild Wednesday in Carle class. Remember to keep sending us your FABULOUS pictures and work, we love to see you busy at home.


Wednesday is our P.E. day so let’s get up and moving!! 

Remember Joe Wicks P.E. sessions are streamed live on YouTube daily.  You could also try some of the Zumba dances or Yoga activities on the website Go Noodle.

We like …



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



What vegetables do you have in the house? Can you name them? Use a book or the internet to see some different vegetables, can you name them?  Make a diary/list of all the fruit/vegetables you like to eat. Pick one of your favourite vegetables or one of the new ones you found and write a couple of sentences about what it tastes like. Can you use some describing words? What does it look like? How does it feel? How does it taste?  

(Remember we want your child to use their sounds to spell so not all words will be spelt right!). Don’t forget the checklist we use in class when writing. Have you used your Fred fingers to spell words? Have you got finger spaces between your words? Are your letters well formed? If you notice a letter is the wrong way you could practice it!


This week in maths we are going to start off with recapping estimating. Put an amount of objects in front of your child and ask them to estimate how many objects they can see. Model to your child using the word estimate, I estimate that there are 7 objects. When they have estimated count how many objects are there. Were they close?


This week you have been practically taking away objects with your child. Recap the take away and equals sign with your child, read some take away sums with them and point to each part. Today we are going to complete the sheet below. Count the objects on the sheet and write the number underneath. Then get your child to cross the amount of objects off. For example 5 birds – 2, get your child to takeaway 2 birds by crossing them off, remembering to careful count. How many are left? Write the number at the end. Support your child through these as tomorrow their activity is to try and complete a similar sheet independently.


Lets finish off our maths lesson by getting familiar with coins and notes. Place plastic or real coins in front of your child and let them explore them. What can they see? What numbers do they have on them? Are they all the same? What is different about them? Name the coins with your child



Today we would like you to look at some vegetable recipes. Read some instructions together and follow the recipes to create some vegetable-based meals. The children may also like to try making and tasting some of the recipes mentioned in the story, like rhubarb pie, beetroot salad or pea soup. Take this time to enjoy making something with your child and letting them get messy and explore cooking in a fun and safe way. Below is some websites that you might wish you to use. This activity will then help you with your literacy activity tomorrow.
