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 could watch Ms Woolford's video on Tapestry if you want to.


I am going to really challenge your adding skills today!  We are going to be adding by solving some problems and finding the missing number in our number sentences. 

You could watch Miss Golding’s Tapestry video for support with how you can use your ten frames and part-whole models to solve these problems.    

The Maths Challenge Questions for today are on different levels again so start with Mild and see how you get on.   You might want to have another look at the question sheets from yesterday and see if you can complete anymore before starting on the new ones – choose the challenge that is best for you.  Today’s number sentences are super tricky so don’t worry if it is hard.  Take your time… I know you can do it!


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

Tomorrow is our VE Celebration so last chance to get in some practice of the songs before the sing-a-long!  You can sing, do some PE or choose a Challenge from any of the Home Learning Challenge grids uploaded. 


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 with some handwriting practice - today's letter is 'b'.  You could watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry to help you. 

Your challenge today is to write about your model.  This is called an evaluation.  What went well?  Which bit did you like doing the most?  What did you find tricky and how did you overcome this?  

Remember that part of being a metacognitive learner is to reflect on what you have done and think about the skills and resources you have used and how successful they were.

You can find an example of an evaluation in the 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom of the page.  No need to print!  You can read the questions and answer them in your book. 


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.   

It is a short week this week so instead of learning another new sound today, we are going to use this time to recap ALL of the Set 2 sounds that we have learnt so far.  There is a Phonics Lesson on Tapestry for you to take part in and a Reading Activity sheet in the 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom of the page.  


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.
