Story time with Miss Geyton!

Miss Geyton would like to share with you the story of Prince Cinders by Babette Cole. Listen to her as she reads you the story. Once the story has finished, talk to an adult about what you have heard. Can you tell them what happened in the story? Who were the main characters? Does it remind you of any other stories you might have heard before?



You will need the Prince Cinders description sheet. (or alternatively you can just use a piece of paper to record your ideas)

Having listened to the story, we would like you to think about the character Prince Cinders and how he changes through the book. Think about what he was like before the spell and then what he was like after the spell. What did he look like?

Draw a picture to show Prince Cinders before the spell and then write a sentence to describe how he looked.

Then draw a picture to show him after the spell and again write a sentence to describe how he looked.

Ask your adult to send your completed work into school using your class email address.



You will need the missing number calculation with subtraction from the website to complete. Don’t worry if you can’t print the sheet, you can copy one calculation at a time and answer it just as you would from the white board at school.

For each calculation that we have given you, one of the numbers is missing. To work out what that missing number is you will need to count on in your head. As we have no start number we must actually combine and add the remaining 2 numbers together to find the answer to the calculation.

For example in the calculation ___ - 4 = 7, you will put the number 7 in your head as it is the largest number. You then need to add the 4 to this by counting on. Once you have counted the four steps forward – 8, 9, 10, 11 you will have reached your answer. 11 is your missing number. Check your complete number sentence is correct once you have finished 11 – 4 = 7.

Ask your adult to send your completed work into school using your class email address.



PE – Sock target challenge!

Find a pair of socks and pair them into a ball.

Collect/make some targets. You can either use containers from around the house (saucepan, jug, bowl etc) or make some using paper or markings on the ground. Try to ensure they are different sizes. Give each target a points total.

Stand back from the targets (you decide how far!). Take 5/10 throws and try to land the socks in the targets – how many points did you get? Challenge everyone in your family – who gets most?
