Four Elms Primary School

Tuesday 9th June

Good morning!  


We will allot time on Friday for completing the challenge outcome. Throughout the week, we will be participating in learning which should help us when we get to the outcome day. We are aspiring, persevering, reflective learners, so we will be doing some work in our reflective journal throughout the week. To make sure you know which lessons are linked to our weekly challenge, we will mark the lesson with a  and AYOC to show it is part of The year of change activities.  


Please send us your work from the previous learning if you haven’t done so already. Have a good day! 





Wake up Shake up – please use this time to exercise.  

There are lots of different options, here are a few you could choose from: 

Joe Wicks - 

Cosmic yoga -  

Just dance -  

You could use this time to take a walk/bike ride as your daily exercise.  



Your child should start their phonics session by watching a video which introduces a new sound. The video can be found here:  

If the link doesn't work try clicking on this link and then click on either the YouTube link or the Facebook link on the first line.  

The videos are only streamed at certain times of the day and are set depending. The times are:  

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30am  

  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00am  

  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30am  

(It may be better to do mental maths and problem solving first and come back to phonics, if your video is at a later time) 

In terms of the reading section of the phonics lesson, Oxford Owl are making all the phonics books available online as ebooks. Here is the link  

Once you’ve clicked on the link then click on ebooks and then you need to register but it is completely free. Once registered you can then open all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child.  

This means you do not need to look at the RWI books on the school website and we will not be adding any further books there.   

Guided reading:  

If your child is not in a phonics group and instead does guided reading, please find the work on the year 2 page.

This is a 100 square! We have used these before to show the relationship between numbers.

  1. Find 2 more than 90 

  1. Find 1 less than 72 

  1. Find 10 less than 90 

  1. Find 2 less than 21 

What is the pattern of the rows and the columns? 

Have a go at this activity. 

Challenge: We can use our 100 square to help us do tricky mental maths.

If we want to add 55 and 11, it sounds tricky. However, we can use our counting in tens to help us! Start on 55 and add 10. Then add one more. 

Can you try these ones? 

29 + 11 = 

72 + 11 = 

47 + 11 =  

Can you think of a method for adding on 9? 

5 + 9 = 

68 + 9 =  

See if you can make your own. 

Key vocabulary: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least.  

12:00- 1:15 



Calm time 

Use this time to relax, talk to another person in your house, read a book, draw a picture. If you were getting your numbers the wrong way round, have a practise at this number formation sheet.

Are these toys familiar? Do they remind you of any toys you play with? 

Do you have a teddy at home? Does it look like this? How is it different? How is it similar? 

What are the similarities and differences between crayons from the early 20th century and crayons today?
