Each week we spend approximately an hour working through our mental maths skills, eg rapid recall of bonds and fact families, as well as reviewing some of the less visited areas of Maths - Shape, Area, Factors and Estimation (SAFE). If your child is on SAFE Maths we will have emailed you the sheets via Purple Mash. However, the following links are all excellent at reviewing those skills we all need to become fluent, confident mathematicians.
Click here for Subitising skills for Reception, these are really useful for seeing an amount without counting.
Daily 10 : skills for Year 1 and 2 to practice.

RE: Why does Easter Matter to Christians?
LO: I can recognise that Incarnation and Salvation are part of a ‘big story’ of the Bible.
Ask pupils why eggs are connected to Easter. If necessary remind pupils of their walk and discussion focusing on new life, explaining (if you haven’t already) why eggs are a symbol of new
life. Are pupils able to spot a part of the Easter story that is about new life?
Share the images of the Easter story all jumbled up (can be folded and placed in side plastic eggs for pupils to pick and unfold). Place the events of Easter on the ‘Big Story’ of the Bible timeline, using the frieze artwork and the keywords (Incarnation, Gospel, Salvation)
Ask pupils again, why does Easter matter to Christians? How have their answers changed?
Discuss what pupils find happy and sad about the story of Easter. Looking at a colour chart, discuss
which colours pupils think are happy and which they think are sad. Pupils place template of crosses
onto a plain piece of white paper. Smudge around outside with oil pastels so when template is lifted off there’s a blank cross surrounded by colour. Each pupil should make a cross in ‘happy colours’ and a cross in ‘sad colours’. The first should be filled with parts of the story that make pupils feel happy, and the second with parts that make them feel sad.
• Discuss some other emotions; for example, angry, excited, surprised, worried, scared. Pupils show these on their faces and bodies and talk about times when they feel each one. Show pictures of the five parts of the story included in the beginning of the lesson. Can pupils match at least one emotion to each part of the story? ‘Happy’ and ‘sad’ can also be used as part of this emotion-matching activity.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
