Wow!  You made it!  Our last day of learning at home before we get to welcome you back to school.  We hope you enjoy your last day of home learning - we can't wait to see you on Monday!  Only 3 more sleeps to go...  :-)

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

Log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read this week’s story for the final time! 

Today we have some comprehension questions about the story to discuss and answer.
1. What did the boy wish he could have?
2. Why did the boy get up early to catch a star?
3. Can you remember the 5 ways the boy tried to get the star?
4. When the boy saw the star in the water, was it a real star?
5. What type of star had the boy really found?
6. In this story the boy is very patient whilst he waits for his star. Have you ever had to be patient whilst waiting for something?


0930-1000- Maths Challenge

Warm up by counting to 10, forwards and backwards. 


Your Maths learning each day will begin by watching a video on the White Rose Maths website.  Watch the video and then complete the challenge found in the 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom of the page.  


White Rose – Building 9 & 10 - Week 2 - Session 5 -


At the bottom of the page there are also some Additional Maths Challenges. These are only to be completed after the initial White Rose lesson and challenge. Only complete them if they are appropriate for your child, or you have spare time in your day.  


1000-1045- PE

Today we will be learning the next part of our dance about African animals to the song 'Waka Waka' by Shakira.

Head over to Tapestry and watch the video of Miss Marchant and Mrs Cunningham teaching you the next part of the dance. Try and join in and follow your teachers. Keep practising the moves until you can remember them without having to watch. We will also be going over this in our zoom lesson today. 


We would also like you to spend some time on one of the skipping challenges. The videos demonstrating these can be found on Tapestry. #SkippingChallenge


1045-1115 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. 


1115 - 1145- Live Daily Zoom Session

Today (if you would like to) you can come dressed as your favourite book character!  If you don't want to come dressed up, you could bring your favourite story with you instead to show everyone. 

We will be doing our dance so be mindful of any outfits that you are wearing! 

We can't wait to see you!! :-)


1145 - 1215 – PSHE Challenge - A Ticket Around the World

For PSHE we would be learning about a different country every Friday.  Where will we be going today? 


Today’s country is Botswana!  Log on to Tapestry to watch the video for this week. 



After watching the video, discuss: Would you like to live here?  How is it the same/different to where you live?  How would you get there?  What would you wear for your travels around the country (is it hot or cold)? 


To explore the country a little more, choose a challenge (or two) from the grid below:



Make the country’s flag.



Make or build a famous building or landmark.



Learn a traditional song.



Learn to say hello / goodbye in the language native to the country.


Research a native animal.

Count to 5 in the language native to the country.


There is also an episode of Go Jetters which visits this country. The link can be found below: 


1215 - 1300 - Lunchtime


1300- 1330 – Phonics
Open Tapestry and watch the video ‘Set 1 Speed Sounds.’  Say the sounds along with the video; can you remember them all and say them first?  You should watch and say your Speed Sounds every single day. 
After warming up with your Speed Sounds, watch your Phonics Lesson video on Tapestry.


1330 Onwards-Forest School

It is time to go to Forest School with Mrs Holmes. 

Follow the link below to Mrs Holmes' Forest School page where you can find a range of activities to try.

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


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