English 30.3.2020 - 3.3.2020: "SpyFox" - by Team SpyFox

When the world is threatened by an evil hammerhead shark bent on flooding the world, it"s up to SpyFox to stop him and save the world!

Watch this video of Spyfox and then choose 2/3/4 of the tasks below to complete over the next 3 or 4 days. I'll post a few examples of some ideas in picture form throughout the week.

- Children could retell the story.
- Draw a 1 or several of the characters and create a character description. Remember to write about their personality and appearance. Fill it with ADJECTIVES!
- Create a Wanted Poster for the evil Dr Hammer or a new evil villian which includes a drawing and a detailed description of their appearance and personality which is full of adjectives.
- Act out the next adventure of Spy Fox. Get your family to pretend to be other characters in the story, such as the evil Dr Hammerhead and video it or take pictures and send them in to Mr Price - I'll add them to the website.
- Write the next adventure of Spy Fox using a different wild animal as the villain and including silly henchmen. What about a huge Ape - like King Louis in The Jungle Book - with cheeky monkey helpers.
- Create a newspaper report for the events outlined in the film.
- Design a 'Bond-like' gadget that Spy Fox could use in his missions and label it. When might he use it?

Spy Fox

Here is an example of a Spy Fox and Dr Hammerhead character description. I've labelled the picture of Dr Hammerhead with adjectives to begin with before writing about him.


maths 2.4.2020 & 3.4.2020

Division by Sharing

Division is one of the hardest concepts for pupils to learn in Year 1. I fully recommend you do this activity in the practical method using by sharing objects between toy dolls/figures/cups etc & take your time over it.
There is no need to complete every column in 1 go, as I won't be adding any more maths this week.
Children may find this concept challenging so I appreciate all of your efforts and support in trying to teach this area. If they 'hit a brick-wall' please don't worry. It is a concept that will certainly be covered again during their time in school.

Maths 2.4.2020 & 3.4.2020:          Division through sharing

Phonics 31.3.2020

Keep working on the alternative pronunciations of the 'ch' grapheme as it's a bit of a tricky one. Here are some examples below:

Why not look at around your house/garden to see if you can find words that contain some of the alternative ways of pronouncing the 'ch' grapheme - you could stick a sticky note on them with the correct spelling, like I've done underneath.

I'll post the next phonics lesson tonight but keep practising what we've already been covering.

Doubling 31.3.2020


  1. Find double of objects or amounts of objects around the house - take some pictures if you like
  2. Then complete the activities below:

Draw an array (pictures/dots) to help you & carry on the table to doubles of 20 if you like.


Then have a go at answering this question below

After you've finished the Multiplication from yesterday - here are some word problems which you could complete using multiplication.

Forest School:  30.3.2020

Build a shelter or den - indoors or out. Get your family to help

Remember a den should:

  1. Keep you safe from danger
  2. Protect you from weather - rain and too much sun
  3. Is it big enough for everyone who wants to use it. Is it big enough to stand up in? Can you lie down in it with your whole body in it?
  4. Be comfortable - add cushions, pillows
  5. Keep important things off the ground so they don't get wet - create a table.

Watch this video of the story of Easter then retell the story on a story arc...
Be prepared - it is a bit of a long video - there are of course shorter versions on youtube if you are short of time.

Create a story arc in your book. Use as many pictures and words as you like to help you remember the story. Here is my example to help get you started:

Then retell the story to a family member and try to include as much detail as possible.
