Hi Beech Class. I hope you’re all OK and are enjoying the Rainbow Fish story.


Watch and listen to the story again here…


While you watch, think about what the Rainbow Fish is like at the start of the story and then at the end.


He changes how he is across the story and becomes a totally different fish.

For today’s task can you compare the Rainbow Fish at the start and end of the story?

Write good describing words in a list for the Rainbow Fish at the start of the story and then at the end. Talk with your grown up and share your ideas first.

Don’t forget to use your phonics to sound out your describing words.


Use this sheet to write your list in a column.

day 2 english

If you want an extra challenge you could write your list in a sentence. To do this you will need a comma

in between each of your describing words. Look at this:

Here is an example:

He is shiny, bright, colourful and beautiful.

You could use the time connectives first and at the end at the start of your different sentences.



Finding halves of numbers

Summer term, week 2 Lesson 1 – Find a half (2) and watch the video.



Then we are going to look at halving numbers. You can select which one of these 2 activities you want your child to complete:

  1. White rose follow up

maths day 2

  1. Use this halving mat and write out even number cards numbers to 20 (2,4,6 etc)

halving mat

Get 20 objects and chn have to count out the number to half then split the number in 2 using the mat. You can draw a mat like this to save printing.

If your child wants to record their calculations, avoid getting the children to record 8 ÷ 2 = 4.

Instead they can record half of 8 = 4.


Maths problem of the day

Have a go at this extra problem if you would like. Ask the children how do you know that? How did you work out that answer?



Look through this and use this video for today’s sound of e_e.
