Norbriggs Primary School

Where Every Child Counts

This is where you will find work for Mrs Ward's Dahl class. There will be daily Numeracy and Literacy along with ongoing Phonics and Spelling activities and a mix of Science, Topic and RE along with other enrichment activities to keep your children's brains busy.

Please can you continue to read daily with your children and to practise times tables using Time Tables Rockstars. Please message if your child has lost their password- and I will be checking to see who has logged in!

If you have any worries or concerns, please use the Remind App to contact me and I will get back to you ASAP. 

Please do what you can to help your children during these difficult times and take plenty of breaks.

We miss you all and can't wait to have you back in class,

 Mrs Ward, Mrs Henman and Mrs Otter.


 This week we are going to recap some of the work we did with money. I know the children in school found some parts a little difficult, especially finding the difference and finding change.  If you think your child is ok and ready to move on, I have added some more challenging worksheets at the bottom. When learning about money, role play of real life situations is so important. If you can find the time, please spend some time with your child pretending to pay/ give change etc.


Monday 25th Jan 

Counting coins in 2, 5. 10s- tying in with our 2, 5, 10 times tables recap this week.

Money- addition worksheet 

Tuesday 26th Jan

Watch the video to see how we find the difference-

We usually count up on a number line (we also use coins to count and sometimes subtraction). The activities are easier than the numbers on the video but it is a good example of our methods.

Giving change worksheet

Wednesday 27th Jan

Can your child apply their knowledge?

Play this game to find out- play the 'Finding Change' game and encourage them to use pencil and paper to find the answers.

Move up the levels as you go.

We have been learning all about our skeletons and muscles. Let's see what you can remember about how to keep them healthy.  Watch the video for a little reminder and then challenge yourself to fill in a food diary, recording what you eat and what it does for your body. 

Nutrition Food Diary

This is just a guide- you can always make your own version.




After the death of Edward the Confessor, no one knew who would rule next. There were three kings who claimed they had a claim to the throne. 

-Harold Godwinson - promised the throne by leaders of England.

-Harald Hardrada- thought his family had been promised the throne by a previous King.

-William, Duke of Normandy- said that Edward has promised him the throne before he died.

What can you find out about each of the three kings? Record it here.
