Session 3 -  Maths


Finding 1 less

Watch the video of Mrs Leigh finding out about 1 less. Every time we take 1 away we need to count how many we have left altogether. Remember the total is the last number we count.



While out and about on a walk can you collect some sticks or some pine cones? How many do you have each time you take 1 away?



Can you write down the numbers each time you take 1 away?


Session 4 - RE - What is a Parable?


The Parable of the Leaven

Watch the video of Mrs Holmes discussing today’s parable and activity. Can you curl up small into a ball? As small as you can. Sometimes the tiniest things can grow in the most surprising ways. Watch this clip of making bread. Christians believe that God’s kingdom can grow with a small act, just like a tiny bit of yeast can make the bread grow.
