Hello wonderful Kingfishers,

I hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend.

Another week, another exciting challenge. Watch the video for challenge 4 and start thinking about how you can fill your buckets. I'm really looking forward to hearing about the random act of kindness you are going to carry out this week and over the next few weeks too. I'm also going to do the challenge this week and will let you know how I get on. 

As always please send me photos of your work when you have completed it, so I can give you feedback and put some fantastic work on our celebration page. 

The timetable and resources are below and on the left. We are starting a new book in story time this week 'The House With Chicken Legs', I hope you enjoy it.

Any questions or problems, please contact me:

Wishing you a marvellous Monday,

Miss Stuart 




Exercise-Please do the live online Joe Wicks workout (on you-tube) or an exercise of your choice.

Equivalent Fractions

Good morning Kingfishers. This is Mr Cook and I will be taking your maths lessons for the next few weeks. Mrs Jones and Miss Stuart have told me that you have been doing amazingly well with your fractions work and I am really excited to work with you.

Mrs Jones has asked me to start the week by providing those of you who are confident with equivalent fractions with the opportunity to stretch your understanding and for those of you who need a little bit more support you will be consolidating your understanding of equivalent fractions.

For those of you who wish to spend more time developing your current understanding of equivalent fractions please re-watch the video created by Mrs Jones and then answer the questions you will find attached below.



For those of you who really want to test their understanding of fractions I have a lovely challenge for you called Bryony’s Triangle. Watch the following video:

Bryony's Triangle

If the video doesn’t work then follow this link:

In the video Bryony sets you the challenge: what fraction of the original square of paper is the shaded triangle?


Steps to get you started:

-How might you use the folds of your flower to help?
-What fractions of the piece of paper can you see using the folds?
-How could you split the paper in half using the fold lines? A quarter...?


This is a real challenge.

Best of luck!

Send us images of your folded sheet and a written explanation of your answer.


If you wish to challenge yourself even further you can then create equivalent fractions to go with your solution to the problem.
