Good morning everyone. I’ve had lots of great work from yesterday which I will share with you tomorrow. Today we have the following activities:
Phonics FS2 – new sound ‘oa’
Phonics FS1 – Teddy Bears Picnic
English – Three Little Pigs – creating a story map
Maths FS2 – Playing games to practise subitising
Maths FS1 – Stories with the number 3
Knowledge and Understanding of the World – Build the houses for the Three Little Pigs and test which is the strongest

FS2 Today’s sound is another digraph ‘oa’

Choose the game you want to play to practise blending. You can play Buried Treasure, Picnic on Pluto or Dragons Den Can you beat your score? Click on the link and choose your game. Click start and then choose Phase 3, then click on today’s new sound +oa.

Have a go at writing some ‘oa’ words. Children look away now…… Answers – goat, soap, loaf, road, toad, toast

Now practise reading your new sound ‘oa’ in sentences. Again click on the link and click start. Click next in the bottom right and click on today’s sound ‘oa’.

Or read the sentences below.

FS1 Have a picnic and invite a special toy/teddy. Your toy can only understand ‘robot talk’ so you will all need to speak to them in your robot voice. For example ‘Would you like a b-u-n?’ ‘Here is a r-e-d plate’.
Grown ups – Throughout this week’s activities, keep modelling your robot talk too. Take turns or do it together and keep it fun. Using words with 2 or 3 sounds, 4 at the most is best whilst your child is getting the hang of this skill


Today we are going to think about the story of the Three Little Pigs again and this time we are going to draw a story map to help us retell the story. Learning how to create a story map is really useful for when you move in to different classes. Yesterday, Class 3 also were looking at a story and creating their own story map. Have a look at their blog to see what they were doing.


FS2 Today watch the Numberblocks episode Stampolines and think about how you recognise the different numbers without counting.

Now play a game. You could play Bingo. I try not to add resources which need printing but this is a good game to play. If you would prefer to pick the resource up from school then please let me know via the FS email: and I will arrange for a pack to be ready for collection.

or play Beetle Drive

or have a number hunt and then sort the cards into eg 3 or not 3. The following questions could help prompt discussion about subitising.

You might use other numbers to sort eg 6 or not 6?

FS1 Watch this video about stories with 3 in them.
Read a story with the number 3 in it.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World: The World

Your challenge today is to make three houses for the Three Little Pigs. You might use the materials the pigs used in the story or you might think of some of your own. There are some ideas below. Think about which materials will make the strongest house. When you have built them, test them out! You could use a small fan if you have one. If not, try using a clean empty squeezy bottle to use as wind. What did you find out? Which was the strongest? Why do you think that is?

Don’t forget to take lots of photos. You could even video testing the houses. Let me see how you get on!

Have a great day and remember to have fun!
