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! This week our story is called ‘How to Catch a Star’ by Oliver Jeffers.
Today we would like you to listen, and act along, with the story to become really familiar with it. Are there any words in the story that you are unsure of? Listen carefully and write them down before finding out what they mean.
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.

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.

1045-1115 Break Time

1115 - 1145- Live Daily Zoom Session
Don't forget to log into zoom for our daily session. It will be great to see you all and a chance to catch up with all your friends.
1145 - 1215 – Enquiry Challenge
Watch the Enquiry Lesson Input on Tapestry.
Last week we looked at animals that lived in hot and cold places. This week we are going to look at the animals that live here in England. What land animals can you think of that live here? First, let’s think about the different environments that they might live in. In England we have forests, fields, mountains, cliffs and towns to name a few. Can you draw and label an animal that lives in one or two of these five habitats? To extend yourself you could even write a sentence for each too. Or you could think of other habitats that are on land in England.
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 - 1445 - Plan, Do, Review –
Encourage your child to make a Learning Choice from a list of options (change these to suit) but they should include selecting from:
Indoor exercise (Cosmic Yoga – found on Youtube or GoNoodle);
Go for an afternoon walk;
A Home Learning Challenge;
A Forest School Challenge;
Be creative (craft, painting, playdough, baking);
Exercise (ride your bike, go for a run, play football/rugby);
Quiet activity (puzzle, colouring, board game);
Screen time on a learning website/app (links can be found on the ‘Useful Websites to Support Home Learning’ section of our COVID-19 Yr R Page).
When your child has made their choice, discuss: Where are they going to do their Learning Choice? What exactly are they going to be doing? How are they going to do it?
When they have completed their Learning Choice, Review it. What went well? How could they improve it? You could revisit it tomorrow afternoon to improve. What have they learnt?
