Well, you are really excelling yourselves in the last week of Home Learning! There is so much phonics practising, a great variety of maths, brilliant The Very Hungry Caterpillar work and a huge variety of other things from tie dying t-shirts to birthday celebrations! Lots of you have been investigating Spring and I’m really pleased some of you are talking about coming back to school. Here are some of the amazing things you have been doing.

Today’s activities:

Phonics FS2 – Consolidate new sounds
Phonics FS1 – Oral blending and segmenting
English FS2 – The Very Busy Spider
Maths FS2 – Measures
Maths FS1 – Number of the week: Number 7


FS2 Keep practising!

Practise the sound ‘ow’ by watching this episode of Alphablocks.


Use your favourite Phonics Play games to practise.

FS1 Today I would like you to think about oral blending and segmenting (talking like a robot).


Today I would like you to listen to another book written by the author of the Very Hungry Caterpillar – Eric Carle. This story is called The Very Busy Spider. Before you listen to it, if you don’t know the story, what do you think will happen? Who do you think is the main character (who is the story about)? Where do you think the story is set (where does it happen)? When you are listening to it I would like you to think about:
What happens in the story?
What is the same and what is different to the Very Hungry Caterpillar?
Look at the title
Look at the illustrations
Think about the story
Which story do you like most? Can you explain why? Who is your favourite character? Can you explain why?

Now I would like you to think about the story and draw a picture for the different headings. Challenge yourself to add labels or captions to your pictures.


FS2 Today’s video looks at weight and the words we use to help describe and compare how much items weigh. Your task is then to use what you have learnt to make a cake!


FS1 Number of the week: Number 7. Draw, paint, chalk or colour a rainbow. How many colours do you use? Label them with the correct numeral if you’d like.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development: Well Being Wednesday

So, we will be back in school next Monday. That is 5 sleeps away. I hope you have been thinking about and preparing for when we return. While it is very exciting to see our friends, it might feel very strange being back in the classroom with lots of other children and sharing resources and activities with others. When things feel strange and different, sometimes we forget all the good things about ourselves. It is really important to keep reminding ourselves of these things because this can help us through strange times and difficult feelings. Today I would like you to complete the activity below. Please save it when you have finished and bring it to school with you so we can add it to a display. It will then be in school as a reminder of how special you are so you can remind yourself when you need to.

Have a great day.

Mrs Atkinson
