Our focus story for this weeks Literacy is 'Gorilla Loves Vanilla'. 

Watch the video below to listen to the story. 


Challenge- Think about if you could have any kind of ice cream in the whole wide world what would it be? Design your dream ice cream. What flavours would you have? What kind of toppings would you like on it? Sprinkles, chocolate chips, a flake, a wafer, fruit? Would you have any sauce? 


Draw a picture then write some sentences about what kind of ice cream you have designed. 



This week’s Maths focus is ‘Halving'. This means sharing/ splitting something into two equal parts (it has to be the same on both sides) 

 Key vocabulary to use with your child: halving, half, share, equal, same, two parts  

Challenge 1- Have a go at cutting some food in half. Remember when you cut something in half it needs to be into 2 parts and both parts need to be equal! Here is a link to an activity you could do if you have access to a printer.

If not you could draw some foods or shapes then have a go at cutting them in half using scissors. Or you could even, with the help of your grown-up cut some real food in half e.g. apple, pizza, sandwich, toast, cake, banana. 


Challenge 2- Now lets have a go at halving numbers. To do this you will need some small objects e.g. grapes, sweets, buttons, raisins, cereal, small toys and a halving mat. You could print this example, or draw your own.

Now choose a number between 1-10 and have a go at halving it.

For example 6- place 6 objects in the top box. Now have a go at halving them into the two bottom boxes. How many objects do you have in each box? Do you have 3? So half of 6 is 3. 


Then have a go at halving numbers up to 20. Remember that some numbers can't be halved as they can't be shared between two equally!

Challenge 3- Have a go at solving these halving challenges. 


This week we are moving onto writing zigzag letters. Watch the videos below to find out how to form them correctly. 


Tricky Words- Look at the tricky words below. Can you read them all? Now, grown ups say a tricky word to your child and see if they can write it down, spelling it correctly. 

I, go, no, to, the, into, he, she, we, me, be, was, my, you, they, her, all, are, so, said, have, like, were, little
