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.

Today’s Maths Challenge is to answer some of the questions that I have written for you!  You have been awesome at exploring numbers and writing your own number sentences so it is time to see if you can read and answer mine... :-)

When answering the questions, make sure you use your part-whole model or ten frames to help you and remember to add the two numbers by counting on – put the first (or biggest) number in your head then add the rest by counting on.  You could watch my Tapestry video again from yesterday to remind you what to do if you want to. 

In the 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom of the page are the Maths Challenge Questions.  There are three different documents - they are all on different levels - I call these Chilli Challenges!  Start by looking at the Mild document and then see if you are ready for the next level of challenge!    
Note: Children should be able to answer the questions with independence if they are on the right level for them.  The level of challenge is indicated in the top right hand corner by the number of chillies – the more chillies, the trickier the challenge.  


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

You could choose a challenge from any of the three Challenge Grids, do some PE activities or practice your VE Day songs. 


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.  You could watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry to help you.

Today we would like you to continue to work on your setting model/drawing.  

What other details could you add?  Could you make some name labels for the characters?  Maybe you could write some signs or a title. 

Can you practise acting out the story?  Remember to use your Tales Toolkit plan or your written story to help you think about the main parts of the story for retelling.  
Think about what you could go back to and improve to make your setting model even better.


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.
