Sparrows

If your child is isolating, we will post or deliver a set of CGP workbooks for them to use during their period of isolation.   You can use these workbooks to do as much or as little as you like - we understand that different parents have different needs in terms of their own work and responsibilities.  We would aim for the children to do a page from each book a day, but recognise that this may not always be possible.  Children should bring the books back with them when they return to school, thank you.

Please keep the children reading each day using the books on Active Learn or books you have at home - we can't send reading books home while the children are isolating, sorry.

We have listed below some maths and English activities your child can try while they are waiting for their workbooks to arrive - these should mostly be revision activities.   If your child has special educational needs, you may need to dip into a different year group and your child's teacher can advise on this if you email them or contact the school office by phone.

Some of the activities below are printable but we have tried in the main to make them accessible whether you have access to a printer or not.

Year One 

Maths activities to try - 

  • Make equal groups (multiplication) using blocks, counters, sweets, pasta shapes or whatever you have to hand.  Can your child make 2 groups of 3? Talk about this being the same as 3 + 3 = 6, but we can write it as 2 x 3 = 6
  • Can they make 3 groups of 2? This is the same as 2 +2 + 2 = 6  or 3 x 2 = 6
  •  If you have 2 dice, they could roll them to see how many groups to make and how many to put in each group.
  • Share equal groups (division) using blocks, counters, sweets, pasta shapes or whatever you have to hand.  It's a good idea to use plates to share things out onto as well.  Can your child share 6 sweets equally between 2 plates?  6 ÷ 2 = 3.   Try sharing 8, 10, 12 items between 2.  Then have a go at sharing 3,6,9,12 items between 3 plates.  
  • talk about what happens if you try to share 5 sweets between 2 - is it fair?

  • practice your phonics using the sheets below (no need to print them out if you can see them on a laptop, ipad or phone screen)
  • practice correctly forming each letter on a lined piece of paper.  Make sure y,g,p,q,j,f go under the line and t,d,f,h,k,l,b are tall

Phonics Activity Mats -  Mat 1    Mat 2    Mat 3    Mat 4   Mat 5    Mat 6 

Phase 2 - 5 high frequency words - can your child read all of these?  spell all of them?  write them neatly, with some letters tall and others going below the line?

 

Year Two

 Maths activities to try - 

  • Make equal groups (multiplication) using blocks, counters, sweets, pasta shapes or whatever you have to hand.   If you have 2 dice, they could roll them to see how many groups to make and how many to put in each group.
  • Can you find different multiplication sentences that have the answer 12? How many can you find? Can you find all 6 sentences? ( 12 x 1; 1 x 12; 2 x 6; 6 x 2; 3 x 4 ; 4 x 3)  Try this for different numbers - 20, 24, 30
  • Share equal groups (division) using blocks, counters, sweets, pasta shapes or whatever you have to hand.  It's a good idea to use plates to share things out onto as well.  Can your child share 12 sweets equally between 2 plates?  12 ÷ 2 = 6.   Are there other ways of sharing 12 equally?
  • talk about what happens if you try to share 15 sweets between 2 - is it fair?
