2 Year olds


Hello to everyone. I hope you enjoyed making aliens yesterday. We had some lovely models and pictures!

Do you remember this counting rhyme we sing in nursery? It’s called ‘5 Little Men in a Flying Saucer’. See if you can sing along with it and use your fingers to help you to keep count. Don’t forget to keep taking one finger away when one man flies away. You can watch it here.


If you like practicing your counting and enjoy games, here are some maths games from ‘Top Marks’ for you to try. I hope you enjoy them and learn lots of maths skills.


I know how much you all loved ‘Aliens Love Underpants’, so here is another funny story for you to watch. This time it’s ‘Aliens in Underpants Save The World’. Enjoy it!

Don’t forget to let us see anything that you do at home, and put it in your portfolio. Maybe you want to draw some more aliens! See you tomorrow!



Today we are going to continue to learn about our Phase 3 sounds. Today’s sound is Ch.


Another diagraph today. Remember a diagraph is 2 letters that make 1 sound.


Here is the Jolly Phonics video for today’s new sound.

If you look closely at the video it shows you the action for this sound.


In your writing books can you practice forming the letter ch. A picture is attached for you to follow.


Now I would like you to practice your Tricky Words. These are words that you can’t sound out, you just need to know them.  The tricky words are:


I           no               go                to           the              into         he     me      we     be    she    


Remember ‘my’  


Can you read these words out loud? Ask your parents to shout out a tricky word, can you write them in your writing book?

Now listen to the tricky words song below.


Do this every day as practice makes perfect.


Can you now have a go at reading the following words:


Chip, chop, chin, hutch, hatch, latch, chat, chap, much


Can you now write these words?


Can you send me a picture of the words you write?


Finish today by writing a sentence with the word chip in it.




Today, we are going to continue to learn how to recognise numbers 11-20.


Watch the link below. It focuses on teen numbers.


Can you draw your own number blocks and write the addition underneath? For example 10 + 3 = 13       10 + 18 = 18


Year 1


In the story, the animals create a mud monster to scare the dragon away. Can you design your own monster and describe what it looks like?

Make sure you have capital letters, finger spaces and full stops!

Challenge: use ‘and’, ‘so’ or ‘because’ to extend your sentences.

Daily maths tasks will be set for you on Sumdog.


Or, you can practise these skills throughout the week:

Year 3

Wednesday 6th May 2020


3G: uiw


English: Spelling plural nouns

English: Daft Dog’s Day Out 3

Maths: Add numbers up to 3-digits


English: The Twits

Walt: Follow the structure of a story.

Can you order the pranks which we have read about so far?

You task is to plan your own chapter about a prank that Mrs Twit will play on Mr Twit for revenge on thinking she was shrinking. Today you need to brainstorm what is going to happen in your chapter. In order to do this you need to answer the questions on the attachment called Planning prank.


Maths: Place Value


Walt: To +/- mentally 3-digit numbers and tens.


Attachment- Mental +/- (HTU +/- 10s)


Just like yesterday look at the examples and use your knowledge of place value. Try to work out the answer in your head or use a method of your choice.


Project: Title:  Which was the greatest dinosaur?

Using the fact files from challenge 1 we want to compare what we know about the dinosaurs.

1.       What is the difference between appearances (what they looked like)?

2.       What is the difference in their height?

3.       What is the difference in their length?

4.       What is the difference in their weight?

5.       Do they have the same diet?

6.       What other similarities and differences did you find out?

For example if I already know that:

T-rex: 6.1 Meters (6 meters)

Diplodocus: 53 Meters

Triceratops: 2.9 Meters (3 meters)

A t-rex was approximately 3 meters taller than a triceratops. But it was about 47 meters smaller than a diplodocus. A diplodocus was a whole 53 meters taller than what a triceratops was!

(Please feel free to round number when comparing size as shown above)


Present your findings in your own way (poster, PowerPoint, leaflet, poems, stories, model etc.) Example – but this could be anything to do with your topic, literacy theme.

I’m looking forward to seeing your work. Please send the work or photos of the work to me once it is completed. Thank you

‘’Puss, I can’t work here for much longer, I am fed up and I just want to be a merchant!” Dick whispered to Puss with a sad tone.

Slowly, Puss crept over the Dick making sure no one saw him, as he wasn’t allowed in the kitchen.

“I want to do something else too!” Puss replied back with a meow.

“I find cooking really boring and I’m fed up of cook pestering me all the time!” Dick moaned to Puss.

Together, they thought about what they could do to get out of the situation.
