Today we would like you to:

  • Get active! There are so many fun ways to do this. Remember to look in our resources section – you will see some fun clips, including some of our favourite Go Noodle dances. Running around outside, making an obstacle course, dancing, or Joe Wicks workouts are also great fun!
  • Read for at least 20 minutes. Remember there are lots of different reading books online as well as actual books, which are also great! We are adding new books to Bug Club each week. Don’t forget, you can also find books on the Oxford Reading tree website.


This week we would like ALL children in Maple class to take time and look at the phonics.

It is important that you can see the different way that the sounds are written and become familiar with which words fit which pattern.












Spellings (Same as Monday)



Well, Maple tree class we are nearly at the end of another week. Well done for working so hard at your home learning. Everything you do now will help you for when you return to school.


Today I would like you to think about an alternative ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ story. Your story will begin the same way as the traditional tale but the middle and the end will be your own.

The story will be the same all the way up to Jack reaching the top of the beanstalk then the story can go the way you would like.

I want to see a traditional type of narrative/plot with traditional characters (no batman, trolls or pokemon please) and must include some drama/ peril in the middle then a happily ever after resolution and ending.


This might sound like a big task. Don’t worry, all Maple tree children have written a handful of stories already. But we will undertake this in achievable chunks.


First job today:

Just come up with a list of possible exciting things that could happen to Jack. This will be a list of ideas for the middle of your story then you will be able to choose which one you like the most.


What does Jack see in the clouds? Palace? Gingerbread cottage? Woodland? River?

Who is there?

Where does he go and who does he meet?

Does he find anything?

Does he have to escape or help someone?


Then make a decision on which ideas you like the most and settle with one.

Maths Thursday

Warm up – Count in 10s from 6. What comes after 96? Can you write the sequence down, all the way to 136?

Today in maths we are thinking about data! We are going to focus on interpreting data, that means looking at data and understanding what it means.

I made 2 pictograms. The first shows how many different coloured cars were on my street. I counted in 1s. The second shows how many different types of biscuits I have in my biscuit jars. The second is harder as it counts up in 2s (look at the ‘key’).

Choose your level of challenge and have a go at answering my data questions.

Tip for parents: Children often find the ‘How many more’ question the most tricky. Explain that this means the difference. Count up from the smaller to the bigger amount.

  1. Which colour car was most popular?
  2. How many silver cars were there?
  3. How many black cars where there?
  4. Which colour were there the least of?
  5. How many more black cars were there than blue cars?
  6. How many more red cars were there than green cars?
  7. Tricky Question: How many cars altogether?

  1.            Which type of biscuit were there MOST of?
  2.            How many digestive biscuits were there?
  3.            How many party rings?
  4.            How many jammy dodgers were there?
  5.            How many chocolate chip cookies AND party rings are there?
  6.            How many more digestive biscuits are there than chocolate chip    cookies?
  7.            How many more choc chip cookies are there than party rings?
  8.            Tricky question: How many biscuits altogether?
