Hello everyone. We hope you are all keeping busy with the packs that were sent home. Please find below some activities to support your home learning for this week.

On-going areas to focus on could be number bonds to 10 and 20, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, reading and writing numbers to 100 in numerals, writing in sentences and reading. Hit the Button is a good site for number bond practise, Top Marks have a variety of maths games and Phonics Play and Teach My Monster to Read will support reading. There are lots of opportunities to get children writing - shopping lists, letters or emails to relatives and maybe even a daily diary.

We look forward to catching up with you on the phone soon. Take good care of yourselves, Mrs Whitehead and Mrs Velvick.


The poster below shows sounds from different phases of phonic learning. It may be a useful tool when the children are writing to remind them of the different sounds and which letters represent them.   

SPELLING - Week Beginning 30th March

The /ee/ sound made with a 'y.'

WRITING - Week Beginning 30th March

Spring Time Riddles

Write a riddle about something you see in Spring, e.g. daffodils, lambs.

READING COMPREHENSION - Week Beginning 30th March

Reading aloud to a grown up or older sibling each day is the most important way to help with reading. If you would like an extra challenge, have a go at this comprehension.

MATHS - Week Beginning 30th March

We would like you to continue to practise finding halves and quarters. The focus this week should be on amounts rather than shapes. You could use objects to practise sharing amounts into halves and quarters.

SCIENCE - Week Beginning 30th March

This week, we would like you to learn about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. There is a powerpoint below to read and learn what each means and then a sorting activity. If you would rather, you could draw animals that are carnivores, omnivores and herbivores onto three different pieces of paper. There is also a link to a song on You Tube and an online quiz.




This week, we would have been looking at halves and quarters. As well as the sheet below, there are many practical activities children could do:

  • Cut food into halves and quarters
  • Share objects (toys, food) into halves and quarters
  • Fold paper/leaves in half


'ow' and 'ou.'



Below is a list of the 100 High Frequency Words that children should be able to read and write. Reading aloud daily will help children to practise phonics and talking about the text will be a good start to comprehension skills.


We would like you to think about pirate ships - you could make a pirate ship out of recycling, lego or any other materials you can think of and find or you may choose to draw or paint a picture of one. What do you know about pirate ships? Write or even type (using your computing skills that Mrs Clarke as taught you) some sentences about them.
