Today is Forest School Day!


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 

Choose a book of your choice to read to yourself or share it with someone in your family, discuss it and enjoy it.   

You could log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read a story!  Which Mystery Teacher will be reading your story today?  What did you like about the story?  Why? 

You could also watch a CBeebies bedtime story if you would like to, or search Youtube for stories.   

Good children’s authors to search for include: Julia Donaldson, Oliver Jeffers, Giles Andreae, Sophy Henn, Morag Hood, Jill Murphy, Emily Gravett, Nick Sharratt. 


0930-1000- Maths Challenge 

Warm up by counting to 20, forwards and backwards.  You can watch Ms Woolford's video on Tapestry if you want to.


Start by watching this Numberblocks episode – Numberblocks: NUMBER RALLY ...Apologies, it is a Youtube link again - watch out for adverts and other videos that may play after! 

Today’s Maths Challenge is to answer some of the questions that I have written for you.  When answering the questions, make sure you use any resources that you need to help you.  Try to challenge yourself to count backwards to find the answer.

As before, the Maths Challenge Questions are on different levels, choose the right level of challenge for you.  Levels in order - Mild, Medium, Hot. 


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

You can choose to do a challenge from any of the Home Learning Challenge grids or do some PE activities - don't forget to share with us on Tapestry!


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 – Writing Challenge 

Warm up by doing some handwriting practice - today is 'sh'.  You could watch Mrs Cunningham's video to help you. 


Watch Jasper’s Beanstalk on Tapestry.  This story is a bit like a seed diary.  Can you add to your seed diary?  Have you seen any changes since you planted your seeds?  I think we will have to be more patient than Jasper.

Now thinking back to how a sunflower seed grows, can you act this out?  Can you be the seed in the soil, waiting for water and warmth from the sun?  Can you begin to grow, developing leaves and a strong stem?  Can you produce your flower that attracts the insects to the nectar and pollen?  Throughout your drama piece you could narrate the different processes that you, the seed, are going through!  We would love to see these on Tapestry.  If you don’t want to act it out, you could draw it, make a model, make a film or write it down.


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 new sounds that we have learnt this week - oo (look at a book) and ar - 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.
