WALA our friendship groups


We like to start each PSHE lesson with ‘Calm me’ time. This is to allow you to clear your mind ready to learn.

Today we are going to be thinking about our friends.

Can you make a list of all your friends you have inside and outside of school.


Discuss these questions with your grown up…

Where do you know your friends from?

Do you like doing the same thing with all of your friends?

Do you like all of your friends in the same way?

Do you see some of your friends in only the same place?

Would you want to see all of your friends all of the time?

Everyone has a range of different friendships and that we act differently within or we do different things with.


It is important to know that, some of our friendships can change over time, people can move to and from different friendship groups. This is a normal part of life.



Complete your own friendship chart. Either write their name or draw something that represents them in the centre.


 - When you are finished think about which friends you value the most and why. 

- You don’t need to share this information with anyone, it is for you to think about the people in your life and how you appreciate your friends.


Remember, better times are coming guys and soon we will be able to see our friends, give them hugs, play games and enjoy each other’s company.

WALT count in fractions

Zoom 1

In our last session we were looking at fractions which were greater than 1.


Here we can see that 6/6 is equivalent to 1 WHOLE. We have 12/6 which is equivalent to 2 WHOLES. We then have 2/6 left over which in total is 14/6. 

Using our recall of the six times table we know that 12 is the closest multiple of 6 to 14. 

2 x 6 = 12 so therefore we must have 2 WHOLES and 2/6 left.

Today we are going to begin to look at counting in fractions. LOOK AT THE IMAGE BELOW:

As you can see, each division on the number line above is worth 1/6. We can say that it is increasing by 1/6 each time. (We know this by looking at the difference between the first two consecutive fractions.)

We can then label the other divisions using PROPER and MIXED UNIT FRACTIONS (A Whole and a part).

If we look at the image below, we can see that the first two consecutive fractions are 1/8 and 4/8. If we look at the numerator we can see that it is increasing by 3/8 each time. THIS WILL HELP US TO LABEL THE REMAINING DIVISIONS.

The next division will then be worth 7/8  however the next division after that would be 10/8 (an improper fraction). we will need to convert this to a mixed unit fraction. 8/8 = 1 WHOLE and 2/8 are remaining therefore we would label this division as 1 2/8.






WALT: infer from a text

Zoom 2

Today we are going to read the first page of our new book. We are going to use inference to find our more about Little Billy, the character we are introduced to. What is inference?


Read the text below and try and answer the questions:







Try and use sentence openers such as:

I think...

I believe...

I predict...

I can infer...

I think the author has said this because...
