Maths Purple Group
Adding on 1
Place number cards 1-10 face down on the table. Turn over a card, can your child add 1 more to that number. They can use the cubes to help them.
It is very important that children read every day.
Your child has been allocated books suited to their reading level on Active Learn’s Bug Club. Please login and read these books!
We have created books for your children to read. We will upload 2 books each week (please click on the PowerPoint links below). These books have been designed to help your child revise high frequency words (HFWs) learnt in class. Please re-read these books throughout the week to familiarise your child with common words.
- Story – Stick Man
Our story this week is Stick Man by Julia Donaldson. Click on the link below, or read the book if you have a copy at home.
Once you have read the story talk about the different characters, the main events and some of the settings. How many seasons of the year could you see in the book?

Make sure they are holding their pen correctly and forming all their letters correctly too.
- Purple Group - Writing – I can jump.
- On your pupil’s whiteboard ask them to write the sentence ‘I can jump.’ Firstly write this sentence for them and talk through the words you have written, look at the sounds, point out the spaces between the words and ask if they can see your full stop. Now ask them to write the sentence themselves.
