Ask your child to take your lunchtime order – try make it really extravagant!
They can use their exercise book or a piece of paper to write it down in a list using their phonic knowledge.
E.g. I would like…
a hotdog with ketchup,
an ice cream… and more.
Expect to see phonetically plausible words such as sum crisps, an ighs creem.
Swap over so they can have a go at telling you their order.
You can count just about anything! Have a go at counting different actions. Have a go at these…

|Literacy Activity – Letter Writing
Write a letter to a family member or friend you are unable to see at the moment. You could tell them about the learning you have been doing and what other activities you’ve been up to. Remember to include: finger spaces, capital letters, full stops and to check your writing!
You could then put it in an envelope and go on a walk to post it in a post box.

Use toys at home to make a number story.
E.g. “First there were 6 teddies having a picnic. Then 3 more teddies came along to join them. Now there are 9 teddies altogether. Use the template below to record your learning.
Week Commencing 11 May 2020: F1 Home Learning ‘Zog’
This week we will be thinking about the story Zog by Julia Donaldson. You might have this story at home but if not we have posted a link to it on YouTube. Julia Donaldson is one of our favourite authors and we really enjoy looking for the rhyme in her stories.
Read or listen to the story with your child – before you start the book ask your child a few questions. What do you think dragons look like? What do you think they sound like? The teacher in the story teaches the dragons “…all they needed to know”, what do you think dragons need to know? Read the story to your child and talk about the pictures.
Here are some activities that you can try that are linked to the story.
Can you draw a dragon? Perhaps draw the basic outline of a dragon. Can your child add the spikes to its back and the fire from its mouth? What colours would you use for the fire?
Small world play – Build a castle with any bricks or children’s building materials that you have at home. If you don’t have bricks use food boxes to make a castle. You can decorate this and add any toy figures that you may have.
Get creative– Make a crown or a wand, using bits and pieces from around your home. Send us a photo into the email address.
Watch – Here is an action video to watch and join in with your child. Let’s get active, even if we are inside!
– Fly like a dragon
Get active – Take part in a scavenger Hunt outside or around your home. See page below. This is linked to our senses. Talk to your child about their senses.
Let us know how you get on by replying to the email address:
We would love to hear about what you have been doing. Also we are happy to answer any of your questions too.
Today, Mrs Marsden is going to read, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ written by Eric Carle. The story is about a small caterpillar who emerges from an egg and begins eating everything in sight! I wonder what the caterpillar will turn into at the end?
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin…
Here are a few questions and things to talk about after you’ve listened to the story.
- What did the caterpillar eat first?
- What did the caterpillar build around himself?
- When did the caterpillar eat the oranges?
- When did the caterpillar come out of the cocoon (chrysalis)?
- How many plums did the caterpillar eat?
- How did the caterpillar get out of the cocoon?
- Why did the caterpillar get a stomach ache?
- Have you seen a caterpillar? Held one? What did it look or feel like?
Did you enjoy listening to the story?
Have a go at making up your own version of the story. You could change the main character, for example, The Very Hungry Slug.
You could also change the food, for example, ‘One Monday he ate through one banana. But he was still hungry. On Tuesday he ate through two melons…’
See you next Friday for another story!
VE Day Activities
It is VE Day (Victory for Europe Day) today!
We are celebrating this day because 75 years ago the Second World War came to an end.
We have attached some fun activities you could do to help you celebrate this day.
These activities are optional!
We hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating with your families.
Don’t forget to send us some pictures!
Mrs Allen-Kelly made a mistake on slide 18 of the Maths video yesterday! Who spotted it?
Of course, 9 + 4 = 13 (NOT 15!)
We could have used 9 + 6 = 15
4 + 11 = 15
I have edited the video on Wednesday’s post so it only shows the correct slides now 🙂
Thank you to the eagle-eyed child / parent who let me know about the whoopsie!

Design a wanted poster for the baddies – Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh.
Here’s a template – Wanted Poster

Draw some things that have a number 15 on them.

For example, I know that 15 is one ten and five ones or 3 lots of 5 equals 15.
3. Practise writing the number 15.

Maths lesson at home: Week 3- 15
There are a few extra resources to go along with today’s video:
- Numberblocks 15 video. Please watch the video whenever you like, either before or after the lesson video and ask the questions from the lesson slide.
2. Warm up sheet If you have access to a printer, it may be easier to print today’s one more / one less activity to complete. You can find the twinkl sheet by clicking the link below. Otherwise, pausing the video and writing out each of the numbers will work just fine too.
3. ‘Layering’ numicon We have been talking about ‘layering numicon’ as one method of working out the parts of the whole number. If you have microsoft office / powerpoint, you could use this powerpoint slide to drag the pieces and layer them over today’s focus number / number-shape.
