Lesson 1 – Apple tree addition

Discuss the addition and equals symbols, identifying what they mean. Children are to count how many apples are on each tree and write the total in the box underneath. Then count them altogether, crossing them off as they go so as not to count the same apple twice. Write the total in the end box.

On the sheet provided, where printing is not possible write the calculations out onto blank paper.

Lesson 2 – Adding on stepping stones

Recap the meaning of an addition and equals symbol. Children are to write the number that the child is standing on in the first box, then how many jumps they make in the second, in the third they write the stone they will eventually land on making the total.

Lesson 3 – Take away trees

Discuss the subtraction symbol and ensure your child understands what it means. Children are to count how many apples are on the tree and write the number in the first box. Then cross off the amount from the second box. Count how many are left and write the total in the final box.

Lesson 4 – Subtraction stepping stones

Recap the meaning of the subtraction symbol. Children write the number of the stepping stone the child is stood on in the first box, the number of jumps in the second and the stepping stone number they will end up on in the final box. Encourage children to read the calculation out loud using mathematical vocabulary.

Discuss the features of the poem Eg identify the title, poet, rhyming words, Put the poem into a performance using sound effects, actions and toys/fancy dress if you so wish…be creative!

Lesson 3 – Animal Poems

Read through some of the animal poems together. Encourage your child to identify the words that rhyme, if you can print these out children could highlight/underline the rhyming words. Your child is to choose their favourite poem to recite with actions.

Performance to family members – a nice opportunity to involve the whole family. Could you brighten a relatives day by calling them to perform the poem?

Lesson 4 - Plan

Explain that we are planning to write our own rhyming poem. Children are to write a word in green that rhymes with the word already given in red. The colours will support learning in the following lesson.

Children can add the green rhyming words to the sheet if able to print, if not blank or lined paper would be fine.

Lesson 5 – Writing template

Re read the Animal Sounds Poem from Lesson 1. Today your child will write their own version of this poem. Using their plan from the previous lesson you will see the lines are colour coded to add the correct words to the correct lines.

On the worksheet provided.


Art – colour mixing

Play the video:

Where possible using either paint, chalk, food colouring (anything that mixes together to create new colours) in the primary colours (Red, blue, yellow) children should be given the opportunity to experiment mixing two colours together. They should develop an understanding that red + blue = purple etc.

Either by creating a picture, decorating a cake, playdough, coloured shaving foam. However you see fit and resources dependent.
