Before 0900- Wake Up and Get Dressed

Get ready for the day with independence; have a wash, dress yourself, eat breakfast and brush your teeth. 


0900-0930 - Reading 

Today we have some comprehension questions about 'Mad About Minibeasts' to discuss and answer.   


  1. What time of year is the story set? 

  2. Which minibeasts do we meet in the story? 

  3. How many bones does a slug have? 

  4. What is the stick insect’s brilliant trick? 

  5. How do grasshoppers sing? 

  6. Which minibeast is your favourite?  Why?  Which is your least favourite?  Why? 


0930-1000- Writing Challenge 

To warm up, start with some Handwriting - you could rewatch one of Mrs Cunningham's videos on Tapestry.


Head over to Tapestry and read through the clues that your friends have created for ‘Who Am I?’. Once you think you know the answer, write it down and draw a picture of the minbeast. You could always make some more clues of your own and get your family to play along with you. 

1000-1030- Home Learning Challenge (to continue after Break Time until 1130) 

Choose a challenge!  We now have 4 Reception Home Learning Challenge Grids to choose from. :-)  


1030-1100 Break Time 

Have one healthy snack: a banana, apple, orange etc.  with a glass of milk or water.  Take some time to relax, maybe you could listen to another story online.   


1100 - 1130- Home Learning Challenge 

Continue your Home Learning Challenge that you started – don’t forget to try and upload it to Tapestry so that we can see it!  


1130 - 1200 – Maths Challenge 

Starter - Number of the Day: 20.   

Can you complete the Number of the Day poster?  You can use your own format if you want to!   


Can you write a shopping list?


On your shopping list start with just two items from your shop. This may be worms and slugs. Next to the bugs on your list, can you also write down the price you labelled them with yesterday?


Now, can you work out how much it will cost to buy both items? You will need to add the two amounts together. How could you pay for this? Which coins will you need to use? Once you have worked it out choose another combination of two pots to buy from your shop. Which combination of bugs is the cheapest to buy?  Which combination is the most expensive to buy?  What is the difference between the totals? 


If you want to challenge yourself, you could always buy three items!


1200 - 1300 - Lunchtime 


1300- 1330 - Phonics 

Open Tapestry and watch the video ‘Set 1 Speed Sounds.’  Say the sounds along with Miss Bailey; can you remember them all and say them before she does?  You should watch and say your Speed Sounds every single day.   

For Phonics today, revisit the two sounds that we have learnt this week - can you remember them both?

After you have recapped your new sounds, we would like you to choose a story from the Oxford Owl website to read.  Follow the link below and create a free login to read a book independently. 

Choose a book suitable for your child.  Books go in order - 1) Sound Blending - 2) Red - 3) Green - 4) Purple - 5) Pink.  Other books are read in Year 1.  Children should be able to read all words in a book independently. 


1330 Onwards- Forest School 

It is time to go to Forest School with Mrs Holmes.  Follow the link below to her Forest School page and click on any of the days on there to select your challenge.

Don't forget to post your Forest School challenges on Tapestry so that Mrs Holmes can see all of brilliant things you have been doing.  


When you have finished, enjoy some free time to yourself or to spend with your family.   

We hope you have had a lovely day and we can’t wait to see your uploads on Tapestry. 

A heads up for next week!


Next week, in place of Plan, Do, Review, we will be doing some Transition Activities to help you feel more ready for Year 1. 

The Transition Activities have been set by Miss Jeffery and Miss Wilson so that you can get to know each other better.  More information on these will be shared on Monday's page.  :-)


Have a super weekend.
