Remember all the homework suggestions are optional. You can do as little or as much as you like. Each week’s homework mirrors the type of activities we would be covering in class. We also encourage you whenever possible to keep up with reading, handwriting practice, phonics and basic number such as counting, recognising and ordering numbers to 20. We understand parents may still be working or caring for other family members and may have limited time so please don’t feel under pressure. The most important thing is that you and your families stay safe and well. If you have any questions or if we can be of any help with home learning please do get in touch via the blog enquiries page or through tapestry, which we check on a regular basis.
As we enter the two weeks of the school year, we just want to say a huge thank you for sharing all your learning with us and your lovely comments on the home learning. It has been a pleasure to support you all at home during this tricky time and we hope you enjoy the last 2 weeks!
This week we are continuing with our seaside theme. Our story is Billy’s Bucket!
You can also play lots of games on phonics play!
Take a look at the picture above. Can you think of some describing words for the different things in the picture?
Think about how things might feel, smell, taste, look, sound. E.g. sea – cold, waves – crash, sand – soft
Can you put your words into sentences? E.g. The sea is cold. The waves are crashing. The soft sand is wet. There is a red and blue bucket.
Find different objects around the house and find out which is heaviest. You might want to use your hands to feel the weight of two different objects or you could use balance scales, bathroom scales or kitchen scales. Can you put your objects in order from lightest to heaviest?
Don’t forget to keep counting!
Understanding the World and PD
We didn’t have a sports day this year! Why not hold a sports day event with your family. You might want to do skipping races, egg and spoon races, sack races, a sprint and maybe end with a rounders match!
Why no have a go at making these beautiful vases. Don’t forget to check what flowers you are allowed to use with a grown up!
