Early Morning Activity


Our new topic this half term is....... 'Once Upon a Time'. To get our brains working I would like you to use the pictures on the story stones to help you verbally tell a short story. You could continue my example or come up with your own (I would like you to start your story with 'Once upon a time'). 


Once upon a time there lived a magnificent magical wizard named Monty. One day Monty had a phone call from his friend Lilly the unicorn. Lilly was scared as she had heard that a storm was on its way..............


Good Morning Bumblebees!


I hope you all had a brilliant half term and you are now feeling rested and ready for some more fun home learning. 

I was very impressed with the work you completed last half term, thank you for sending your pictures along via the ClassDojo messaging or uploading them to the Portfolio. I can't wait to see your work over the coming weeks.

What you will need


Warm up your maths brain by either counting to 20-

 or 100- 


This week we are entering a new phase ''Growing 6, 7, 8". I would like you to begin by watching the following video of the story 'Six Dinner Sid'- . As you listen to the story I would like you to take note of how many times the number 6 is mentioned. You could draw a tally line like we did at school. 


Your activities for today – I would like you to draw/ make the houses on the street that Sid lives down. Can you order the houses from 1-6? What if you add another house? And another? How many do you have now? 


I would now like you to go on a hunt to find the number 6. For example you may find 6 eggs or 6 apples. How many different ways can you see 6? Can you find the numeral 6? Can you spot a group of 6 objects?


Paper and pen






Phonics/ English

As a fun starter I would like you to log into PhonicsPlay-  Username- jan21 password- home. Go to Resources > phase 2 > Flashcards Speed Trials. Choose your own race track, colour and design of your car. How many graphemes (letter or letters that represent a sound) did you know?


I would now like you to watch my phonics video below where we will be recapping the sounds we have already learnt (phase 2 and phase 3). We will also be charging up our robot arms to help us with reading.  



Ipad/laptop to access PhonicsPlay 



Pencil and paper 




Read a book on Bug Club. 



With an adult to help you, I would like you to use the internet to find pictures of your favourite fairytale characters. If you have a printer you could print some of these pictures out and make a mood board of your favourite characters. If you do not have a printer you could always draw your favourite characters to create a mood board. I would love to see a picture of your mood boards as it will give me some ideas on which 'Fairytales' we can explore this half term.
