Learning Together at Home P1 Tigers Thursday 10th June

Good morning, Tigers!

How are you all today?

Are you ready for some music?

Here is today’s learning:


Reading: Draw your favourite part/ character of your book and explain an adult why have you chosen that.


On Thursdays at school we do writing. At our meeting at 9.30 we will discuss our writing but just in case you cannot make it here is what we are going to be working on:

Here is a template in case you want to use one for your writing;

Learning Intention (What we are learning today):

  •  We are learning to write in sentences.

Success Criteria (How can I show that I have learned and understood):

  • I can put capital letters in the right place.
  • I can use finger spaces.
  • I can use full stops.
  • I can sound out the words to try to write them.
  • I can write a sentence that makes sense.

Today we are going to write about our the butterfly life cycle. We have seen in our class what has happened to our caterpillars.

First talk to an adult about our caterpillars: how do they looked when they first arrived, what they ate, what happened before they made their cocoons ( they were big and attached themselves to the lid), how they made their cocoons and how they have turned into butterflies. The adults at home haven’t seen it so please tell them all about it (they will be your audience).

Draw a detailed picture of it (you don’t have to colour it in, black pen drawing if you have one), caterpillar to butterfly. We would love to see your picture.

Now you can try to write a few sentences:

  • The adult who is helping you can write the sentences starters (written below in cursive) so you can copy them only if you really need them. However, if you want a bit of a challenge try to sound out the words and write them without help (Adult, please don’t focus on correcting the spelling to start with if it is phonetically correct).
  • Sentence starters:

– –.First we had…

– -The caterpillars were …. They had..

– Soon

– This week

– The butterflies are.. They have…

  • Your child should be able to write independently the worked tricky words (such as I, she, he, etc)

Non-negotiables (adult you could write a simple sentence and model it for your child) :

  • Capital letter at the beginning of a sentence.
  • Full stop at the end of a sentence.
  • Finger spaces between words.

On your writing I would like to see:

  • A description of the caterpillars when they arrive or describe the butterflies at the end.
  • What happened before they made their cocoon.
  • How they made their cocoon.
  • How they turned into butterflies.

Challenge: Use connectives like and, but, because on your writing

We would love to see your amazing writing.



I can share out a group of items by making smaller groups and can split a whole object into smaller parts. MNU 0-07a

I am learning to

  • Split a whole into smaller parts and explains that equal parts are the same size.
  • Use appropriate vocabulary to describe halves.
  • Share out a group of items equally into smaller groups

Watch this episode of The Number Crew

You have been learning how to find half of a number and recognise when a shape has been split in half.  Remember when you chop something into 2 equal pieces, each piece is called a half.

One half, or ½ of this circle has been coloured in.

A half is only a half if it is equal.

Today we are going to be learning about quarters. When you chop something into 4 equal pieces, each piece is called a quarter. We can also write ‘one quarter’ like this ¼ meaning one part out of four altogether.

One quarter, or ¼ of this shape has been coloured in.

4 quarters make a whole one

2 halves make a whole one

2 quarters equals one half

Look at and discuss this PowerPoint



If you wish, you can print and complete this worksheet.


This is a Super movers video about Fractions! Just in case you want to add movement to your fractions!

Polly Jean Pyjama Queen

Click on the link to listen to Mrs Cross reading the story of Polly Jean Pyjama Queen.

In the story, Polly Jean writes to the animals all over the world:-

Penguin lives in Antarctica

Crocodile lives in Australia

Lion, Giraffe and Monkey live in Africa

Octopus lives in the Indian Ocean

Grizzly Bear lives in North America

With an adult, look at a map of the world or an atlas and try find all of the parts of the world where the animals live.

You can use this online map if you don’t have one at home

Africa is not a country – it is a continent, made up of lots of countries.

North America is also a continent.

Can you find out which continent we (and Polly Jean) live on?


Today is PE day. Shall we do our Lazy Town warm up?

Now are you ready for a workout with Joe Wicks?

Have a Thrilling Thursday!
