Go onto resources and phase 5. Scroll down to alternative spellings ‘ar’ and work through the 3 activities in there. Any phonic games on phase 5 are great for the children as they will have learnt the sounds and applying these to spelling and reading is very important. 

Play any phonic games they would like on phonic play or Discovery Education on a daily basis will reinforce what has been taught during phonic lessons.

Please start with ‘Flash cards speed trial’, Phase 3 & 5, to ensure they remember all of their phonic diagraphs and trigraphs.


Reading If you are not already, we would like the children to take part in at least 5 minutes of reading each day. They can read anything, books, comic, newspaper, e-books, whatever they would like. This activity can also completed as their bed time reading.


(1T) Maths 1- To continue our fraction topic, we now want to look at finding a quarter of shapes and amounts. The first thing the children will need to know is that a quarter means it is split/shared into 4 EQUAL groups. 

Firstly, we would like the children to find a ¼ of objects. You can use their toys or any other items from the home. Can they share them into 4 equal groups and then tell you how many are in the group. This will be a quarter of the total number. E.g. 8 cubes to start, shared into 4 equal groups= 2 is a ¼ of 8.This topic should be completed similarly to halving, however they split into 4. As a starting point, draw 4 circles and get the children to put 1 item in each circle and repeat until they have no items left. I will upload a video to demonstrate J

Once your child is confident, please complete activity 1, can the children colour a ¼ of each shape. They can use resources to split into 4 equal groups before completing on paper. 

(1B&1T) Maths 2- The second maths activity is to find a ¼ of the objects. Remember, the children can use resources practically to help them before writing their answer. Use the circle method again, to sort the amount of objects first.

(1B) Maths 3- Lastly, the children need to also be able to find a quarter of a number. For activity 3, the children can use their own resources to find a quarter, however there are ladybirds and leaves that they can cut out and use to find a quarter. Again, this follows the method of sorting into 4 equal groups.


(1T) English 1- For English this week we would like to look at a new text with your child. For lesson 1, could you please read ‘Sayeeda, the Pirate Princess’, this will be uploaded on Facebook. There is an option to listen to the text too. Once you have read or listened to the text, we would like the children to discuss the story with an adult or sibling and answer the first 3 questions and then look at the speech in the text and who said each piece. 


(1B&1T) English 2- We are continuing to look at ‘Sayeed, the Pirate Princess’ text. The first activity focuses on vocabulary, ensuring that the children have a solid understanding of the words they’re reading. If you would like to challenge your child and extend this activity, could they draw or write down some other animals that might swoop, glide or fly? Secondly, comprehension is key when reading any text. Therefore, there are some questions for either discussion or for your child to answer to see if they have fully understood the story.

(1B) English 3- For the last English activity this week, we would like the children to pretend that they are a Pirate and think about what they would feel their treasure chest with. 

Challenge- Can they say why they have chosen each item?

Although we are not completing a spelling activity this week, if you would like to continue looking at the common exception words you can. However, the children will be looking at spelling when completing their phonics activities!


(1B&1T) Science- Herbivores 

Recap the carnivores that we discussed last week by mentioning their characteristics and try to remember a couple of animals that are carnivores. If they need a little support watch a video again to remind them. 

We are looking at herbivores. Watch the video They have flat teeth and most chew side to side (have a go). They are generally quite gentle animals. They are also very active animals.  Can they write a list of 5 herbivore animals? And draw a picture of each animal?





RE- Who am I? Talk to the children about who they are and how they are unique. Start by letting them tell you about themselves, name, hair colour, eye colour, likes and dislikes. Then discuss how those things might be different to someone else. What differences could there be? Their hair colour, eye colour, skin colour or gender might be different. 

You could discuss this further by talking about their name, family members, whether they wear glasses, disabilities or their likes and dislikes. 

Explain how everyone is different, but everyone is just as important and that having different ideas and characteristics makes the world a lovely place. Ask the children to draw themselves and a friend. Write what’s the same and what’s different. Ask them to write what they like about their friend. Please share these so the children can see something from their friend.




(1B & 1T) Art- We are going to look at flowers in paintings. Please look at the poster below and talk about colours, types of flower, are they messy or carefully drawn? Which one do they like best and why? 



Can you find anymore pictures of famous artists who have produced flower paintings? Is there one the children really like? Ask the children to have a go at copying one of these. Focus on the colours this week. When you go out, look at the different flowers that are in gardens and wildly growing now. 

Although this will be completed in school, if your child is returning and they would like to do one at home too they’re more than welcome to. J


Enjoy your week!
