For this lesson you will need some lined paper (or you can draw the lines like I have) and we are going to practise our curly caterpillar letters.
Any you are not confident with today, keep repeating them all week for 5 minutes until you are confident.
Happy handwriting! :)


The video was too large to upload to here today (I will try and make it shorter for thursdays lesson) 

Please access the video click here!




Today we are carrying on with The Three Little Pigs. It was great to see so many of you using the masks and puppets in your drama, I'm sure your acting was fantastic!  If you didn't get a chance to hear the story yesterday, you can watch the video on Monday's page.


Today's lesson is all about describing characters. Please see the video and resources below. You can use the 'Character Word Mat' to help you think of ideas and check your spelling. If you would prefer not to print you could write your description and draw your picture on paper. I'm looking forward to reading your descriptions!

Well done for completing your Maths work yesterday!

Today we are looking at different ways of showing a number using counters, ten frames, tens and ones.

Maybe try and fine 20 small objects in your house for todays lesson.


Watch the video - https://vimeo.com/480769444

Look at the powerpoint with a grown up if they are available.


Complete an activity that you find easiest in your home based on your resources (you do not have to do all three!)


1. Use objects to represent the number like my photographs below. You can use stones, sweets, toys, anything you like! A tens frame helps to organise the tens and ones. You can draw a tens frame on a piece of paper.

2. Cut and stick activity


3. Complete the activity sheet called "White Rose Activity" (this one links to the video)

Have a go at the reading activities below. They include a short text to read and some comprehension questions, to ensure children are developing a good understanding of what they have read. You can choose the level of text you feel your child would be most comfortable with.


Have a think about where you live. Do you live in a house? Does your house have a garden? Are there other houses near by? Are there trees or grass near your house? Do you live on a busy road with lots of cars or is it quiet?

Have a chat about where you live and what your house is like.

Animals have homes too, but their homes are quite different to ours. For example a cow might live in a field, a bird might have a nest in a tree, and a fish might live in the sea or a river.


Can you name some places where other animals might live? For example where do you think a squirrel might live? Do you know where a fox or a frog lives? Can you think of homes where other animals live?


We are humans. We live in homes that have been built by other humans. They have to be made for us. We call this a 'human feature of our world.'


Look at some of the human features of our world on the pdf document.

Animals live in the outside world. Their homes occur naturally. We call this a physical feature of our world.

Look at some of the physical features of our world on the pdf document.

human = man made

physical = naturally made


Today, can you complete the activity by cutting and sticking the pictures into human or physical features? If you can't print, cut and stick you can draw the pictures out by sorting them into physical and human features and use a blank piece of paper.
