Maths – Live Online session 9:00 – 10:30

L.O: To be able to compare numbers.

I can identify whether numbers are greater, less than or equal to each other.

I can use greater, less than and equal to compare numbers.

I can use < > and = symbols to compare numbers.

I can complete number sentences that involve < > and = symbols.


Use these to help you- remember the crocodile likes to eat the biggest number!

Equals means the same.



Starter- Play song, this will introduce the greater than, less than, symbol. 


Main- Use the Teaching video to help support the use of language less than, greater than and equal to and using the symbols.


Use the number line to help you decide if the number is more or less than.



Activity-     Choose a challenge

Please see the attached document for the phonics tasks, which will last for the week.  You can do these daily to repeat them or spread them out across the week once the sound has been introduced.


DT –

LO: To be able to design a windmill.

S.C: I know what a windmill is.

       I can describe the purpose of structures.

      I understand the importance of a clear design.


  1. Play ‘Windmill in old Amsterdam’ and discuss their use.


  1. Explain that a structure is something that is sturdy, strong and can stand up on it’s own.



  1. Can your child think of other structures as well as a windmill? E.g sky scraper, house, statue etc.


  1. Play the 3 DT videos attached to the blog


  1. If you have printing facilities print off the windmill net pages and ask your child to come up with a design by drawing, colouring and cutting the net pages.


If you don’t have printing facilities use recycled items and colour them/ paint them.


Important: Don’t put your structure together yet. We will construct the structure in the next lesson.
