Seahorses Home Learning

** Please can school reading books and library books be returned to school so they can be cleaned ready for September **

Hello parents and carers,

It is Science Week this week.

Today we experimented with air pressure and made a balloon hovercraft. It was quite tricky to blow up the balloon and get it onto the bottle lid that was stuck to the CD. Once we were ready to go, we had to lift the lid so the air would escape from the balloon through the hole of the CD and make it move along. We found it worked much better on really smooth surfaces.

Here is what we did yesterday. We helped superheroes escape from the ice that the baddies had trapped them in. We had fun. Today we are making balloon hovercrafts.

Please look at the photograph gallery and see if you or your work is there. If it isn't send us in a photo anytime and it will be in the half term gallery. We love to see your learning and see you guys having a nice time playing, We love to see you safe and well. Look in the tab to the right called SEAHORSES HOME LEARNING GALLERY.

Wednesday 6th May


Please watch and join in with the a-e phonics lesson on the Letters and Sounds YouTube Channel.


Today we are going to look at joining sentences together using the words and, but or or. Two short sentences can be joined together by adding a word between them.

For example: I went to the park and to the shops. Sam went to Spain but it rained every day.

For question 1 use and but or or to join the two sentences given below together. Remember to only use a full stop at the end and to get rid of the capital letter in the middle of the sentence. For some of the sentences there is more than one joining word that you can use and it will still make sense.

For question 2 finish the sentences in your own words.


Mental Starter

Number bonds to 20. What numbers are missing in each number sentence?

10 + * = 20

20 + 0 = *

15 + * = 20

17 + * = 20

* + 12 = 20

9 + * = 20

13 + 7 = *

* + 4 = 20

Lesson 3: Add together and find a Part

First watch the lesson video as it will help you and will explain what you have to do.
