What a great week so far! Let’s have a look at some of your amazing hard work.

Today’s activities:

Phonics FS2 – New sound ‘or’
Phonics FS1 – Syllables
English FS2 – Retell the story
Maths FS2 – Sequencing and words which help
Maths FS1 – Number of the week: Number 6


FS2 We continue today with the new sound ‘or’.

Keep playing games to help you recognise the sounds (phonemes) as they are written (graphemes). This is really important now that you are learning different digraphs/trigraphs so that you can recognise them instantly without sounding out each individual letter.



Click on the link then start. Go to week 6 and click ‘or’

Segmenting is as important as blending. Sat the words, count how many sounds you hear and then decide how to write the letters (graphemes) which represent those sounds. (Fork, corn, port, horn, north, short)

FS1 Counting the syllables or beats in a words can be quite tricky but is very important. Start simply with one or two beats and gradually increase the number as your child becomes more confident.

Collect some objects from around the house, line them up and clap the syllables. Can someone guess which object it is? Or you could use the pictures below.


Today I would like you to watch this fantastic retelling of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Mrs Altoft and her family made this video and kindly let us watch it. I would like you to have a go at retelling the story and filming it in a similar way. If you don’t have all of the items needed at home, perhaps you could make them out of playdough or draw pictures of them. Perhaps you could get the whole family involved in the retelling as Mrs Altoft did. Mrs Altoft and her family are very excited and can’t wait to see how you get on and so am I!!
Because this is quite a big task, I won’t be giving you anything else to do this week so that you have plenty of time to complete this.


FS2 To help us to put things in the correct order, we need to use special words to be organised. Today we are going to learn what these words are and how to use them.


Remember when talking about the pictures to use the time words to help; first, next, the, after that.

Don’t forget to keep practising your numbers as well.

FS1 Do you have a dice at home? Maybe you have a giant one to use in the garden? Or one in a ‘popper’ as part of a game? Can you count the spots on each side of your dice? Play a game where you roll the dice then someone must do that many jumps/hops/claps or whatever you choose!

Can you spot 6?

Personal, Social and Emotional Development: Well Being Wednesday

We have all been learning at home since Christmas and that seems such a long time! I have really missed seeing you all but we now know you will all be able to come back to school very soon. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see you!
It might seem very strange thinking about coming back to school and some of you might have some questions or worries. This is all very normal. Even though I am really excited I still get a butterfly feeling in my tummy when I think of it. I think….. Will I have everything ready for you all? Will I remember everything I have to do? Will I get to school on time? My day is going to be very different as is yours. What is going to be different? How does that make you feel?

You might not complete this activity today. You might just start to think about how you feel about coming back to school. It is really important to try and talk about how you are feeling because that can help to find ways you can feel better about things, someone may be able to help or if you are feeling really happy and excited you may be able to help someone else by sharing. Have a think and complete this, it will really help me to know how you are feeling so that I can help you too.

Have a fun day.
