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: TEN GREEN BOTTLES.  Apologies that it is via Youtube today as it is no longer available on iPlayer.  Watch out for adverts and videos that may play after. 


We are going to be making our own number sentences, taking away one from numbers up to 10, just like in the episode. 

Start with 10 on your ten frame, or 10 objects lined up, then take 1 away.  Say aloud each time – I have 10 and I am going to take away one, I have 9 left.  Repeat this each time you do your subtracting.  

I wonder if you can use your counting knowledge to find the answer each time you take away one… Can you count backwards and work out the answer in your head?  Challenge yourself to write the number sentences as you go.   

You could watch the Numberblocks episode whilst you build your number sentences, pausing the episode each time the number changes. 


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

You could choose a challenge from any of the three 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 

To warm up, start with some handwriting practice - today's letter is 'e'.  You could watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry to help you.

Watch today’s story on Tapestry called A Seed in Need.  This is the process that your own sunflower seeds will be doing. 

Think about all the things a seed needs to grow.  Can you make a poster or picture of these?  Make sure you remember all these things when looking after your seed.

It’s up to you what your poster looks like, just remember to include the key information.  We have included a word mat to help you with your labels, do try and use your phonics to sound these out by yourself.  

Below is an example of a poster that Miss Marchant made.  You could try and write some short captions too.



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.   

Now that you have done your Speed Sounds, we are going to do some reading!  Let's see if you can spot our new 'oo' sound.  You could watch Miss Marchant's video on Tapestry to support you with this.

In the 'Additional Resources' section you will find the 'oo' Reading Activity. 


1330 Onwards- 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 wesbite/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?   


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.
