The Lyppard Grange Primary School Empowering children to be secure, engaged and equipped for life.

Considering our school for your child to start in September 2021? Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parent tours; please view this video for a flavour of our school.

Friday

Last night Dr Rose sent us an email containing a drawing of what she saw when she looked up at The Great Kapok Tree. She said she found a note inside the chalice. 

Focus activity - Maths 

 

Use a bar model to work out the subtraction word problems and help Dr. Rose get to the Kapok Tree. Choose to do either the bronze, silver or gold problems.

Peg activity - Writing

 

Design a poster to persuade people to save the rainforest! Use bright colours and draw eye catching pictures. As a challenge see if you can write a statement with a full stop and a question with a question mark on your poster. 

Lolly activity - Maths 

 

Have a go at these colouring addition and subtraction sheets. We would really like to see you using bar models to help you solve and represent the calculations. We can't wait to see your finished pictures! 

Focus activity - Phonics

 

During the morning briefing the children will flick through the previously taught digraphs, trigraphs and tricky words.

 

Dice game

For this game you will need to print two nets of a cube or have 2 blank dice to hand. On the first cube in red please write one of the following on each face – p, st, h, b, cl, f, on the second cube (yellow or orange) please write are, air, ere, ear, ar, er

 

Why don't we need a green dice? What happens if the 'air' phoneme is misspelt (ar, er)? Be careful, some of the words might try and trick you e.g. here no longer says the 'air' phoneme.

 

The children are used to playing this game at school. They should know to roll the red and then orange. Once they have rolled them they can then work out what the word says. Once your child has blended the word, do they know if it is a real or nonsense word, can they give a meaning or put the real word into a sentence? Please discuss the meaning of the word if your child is unsure.

 

They don’t need to write the words down, but they can if they would like to.

Additional activities
