Literacy – To finish our work on The Three Little Pigs

Writing up the story of the last four pictures.  Do one picture per day.  Try to write more than one sentence per picture (reminding of capital letter, full stop and finger spaces).  On the last day (Friday) create your cover for your book.  You will need a title, a picture and your name (after all you are the author).  You picture could be a drawing or some sort, some sort of collage (see picture for an example) or some other way of illustrating.


I look forward to seeing the finished books.

Extra Activities – these are just a couple of extra activities based around The Three Little Pigs that you may like to try for fun!

Paint blowing – Be the Big Bad Wolf and create your own ‘Huff and Puff’ picture.  Get a clean piece of paper and put some drops of paint on it.  Then using a straw, blow the paint across the paper to create your picture (see picture for an example).  If the paint is too thick then it won’t work very well.  You need to use watery paint (water colours or maybe add some water to thicker paint) or I even saw a suggestion on the internet that you could use food colouring.  Can you ‘huff and puff’ as well as the Big Bad Wolf?  Download your pictures onto the ILD please.


Den Building – Create your own house/den using the resources you have available.  What would happen to your ‘house’ if the Big Bad Wolf came along?  Download a picture of your den onto the ILD.


Phonics – Carry out at least 2 Education City activities per day (these will reinforce the sounds that we have already learnt).

We are continuing to look at cluster words.  These are words that have two consonant sounds together e.g. went or frog.  This week we are going to look at CCVC words which means that the vowel will always come third as in ‘frog’.

Can I please remind Mrs Bradley’s phonics group to complete the activities that she is setting for you.

Monday – Again using a phoneme frame (if necessary) write the following words; swim, plug, snap, gran, plum, clap, crab.  For those children who are confident with these then try some words with digraphs in them; brown, green, clock, fresh.  With these words remember there is still only four sounds, if using a phoneme frame there is still one sound in each box (b-r-ow-n).

Tuesday – Today we are looking at reading cluster words by playing a game called countdown.  I have put together a list of 20 cluster words (some do contain digraphs) and you have to see how many you can read in 1 minute (it doesn’t matter if you don’t read them all!).  Have several tries, can you read more words by the end?  Can anyone read all 20 words in 1 minute?  The list of words is attached as homework.

Wednesday – Today we are going to write the sentences ‘The frog swims in the pond’ and ‘A crab is on the rock.’  Please remind the children to start their sentences with a capital letter, to finish with a full stop and to leave finger spaces between the words.

Thursday – To be introduced to reading the new tricky words – have, like (see video). 

Friday – To continue to practice your cursive handwriting (see video),


Maths – carry out at least 2 Education City activities per day.

We are going to be using white rose maths where there are activities available which give you a task to carry out each day.

This week we are also going to look at Adding 1, 2 or 3 to any number to 20 by counting on.  To practise this I have included a power point and several worksheets to complete.  You could also create some of your own addition sentences for your child to complete (they may require objects to count to help them).

I have also included a worksheet on counting money – revision from our work on money from a couple of weeks ago.

P.E. – continuing our work on throwing and catching.  Still using a large ball (about football size):

Continue to consolidate the skills that we have been doing (throwing and catching whilst walking in a pair and the shoulder throw) and then move onto learning the chest throw (videos available for both throws).

Move on to throwing at a target – looking at throwing a large ball into a box.  Which throw is most useful?  Does the distance make a difference?  Look at increasing the distance - becoming more accurate with their throwing (direction and distance).

Obviously the important thing is for the children to be active, so remember to try to get out (if the weather permits) and carry out some exercise.



So far we are looked at the different types of materials there are – wood, metal, plastic etc. – and the properties that these types of materials have – hard, soft, rough etc.

This week you are going to use your understanding of materials to make an umbrella for Paddington (linking to our work on Peru earlier in the year).

Now I do realise that not everyone has a Paddington Bear so you will have to pick one of your own cuddly toys (I wouldn’t pick a very precious one as you are going to have to test the umbrella) as the test subject.  This will help you to see how big the umbrella will need to be.

You can use any materials you like and attach them in any way.  Please let me know what you have used (ask your parent to write up a list of what you used). 

Of course we need to know if the umbrella works so you will need to test it out.  I would do this outside as you need to set up your toy, with the umbrella, and then pour water over it to pretend it is raining!  It would be great if you could video this and put it on the ILD.

Did it work? If not, then why not?  Have a think and evaluate your work.
