I have set a 2do on Purplemash today for you to practice your a-e, e-e and i-e split digraphs


Watch the full story:

Were your predictions of what happened in the story correct?

Did you like this story?

If this story was a book it would have a blurb or if it was a longer film it would have a film trailer or advert.

Can you give a ‘snapshot’ of the story without giving the whole story away?

You could film this like a film trailer or write it like a blurb for the back of the book. Remember to give a summary and to interest the reader or viewer but leave them wanting more!

Counting – Practise counting in 10s using any of the activities from yesterday.

Next you will need your 100 square. If you have not collected yours from school yet, please use the one below on screen or download the one from yesterday.

Today we are going to practise finding numbers on a hundred square, then counting up to check we have found the correct one.

So if I say the number 25, you would circle or place an object on the number you think, then count up the tens and along the ones to check you have the correct one.

10, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25.

For the number 42 you would count 10, 20, 30, 40, 41, 42.

Repeat with different numbers. Talk about how they were able to find the number.

They know it comes after 20. They recognise it is in the row where the numbers with 2 tens are (excluding 10s numbers). They know it is in the column where all the numbers have 5 ones. They know it is closer to 1 than 100 so look nearer the top.

Practical – We are going to practise making numbers using our base 10 equipment.

Other options!

Don’t worry if you have not got your Maths pack yet. You can use all sorts of things for the tens rods and ones.

Spaghetti (10) and raisins (1)

French fries (10) and frozen peas (1) You may need to work quickly!!

Sticks (10) and stones (1)

or you could build them from Lego or make them from paper.

If I wanted to make 43, I would need 4 tens rods and 3 ones. Encourage your child to count in tens and then ones as they place their equipment down.

10, 20, 30, 40, 41, 42, 43

Repeat with different numbers.

You can up the challenge of the task by asking questions like:

Make me a number bigger than 30.

If I added 10 more, how many would I have now?

Make me a number smaller than 50 that has 3 ones.

Make me a number between 30 and 40. How many tens would I need?

Task – Use the tens rods and ones to help answer the questions on the worksheet below. You can print the worksheet or display on screen and talk through the answers with your child. Do not feel you have to copy out the worksheet. A comment through Seesaw is enough to explain how your child is getting along.


This is Christopher Corr’s Joy Alphabet

I want you to create the letter of your name in this style!

You could use paint, coloured pencils or collage using different colours and textures of paper stuck down.

Be creative and adventurous with colours, shapes and styles!

If you want more of a challenge you could do your whole name in the style of Christopher Corr’s Joy Alphabet letters.

I can’t wait to see them!

Here is mine,

Well being Wednesday!

I though I would share a story with you, I’m special, I’m me! by Ann Meek and Sarah Massini.

Excuse my assistant who wanted to help me!

It is really important to remember that even though we are all different we are special and being different is what helps to make us special.

I want you to think about the things that make you special!

Alfie told me the things that make him special and I wrote the, down for him. You can record yours in a similar way or take a video or be creative and think of a fun way to do it!
