Morning routine

We always start our morning by talking about the date and weather. We sing the days of the week song and we discuss the date - what day was it yesterday, what day is it today...tomorrow?

Yesterday was the last day in February - it was the 28th of February. Today is the start of a new month. Do you know what month comes after February? If it is the start of a new month, what is the date today? What will be the date tomorrow? What is one more than...

Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song and a the months of year song below.

Basic skills

1. Practise writing your name - If you can already do this, have a go at your surname or even your middle name if you have one. 


2. Simple sentence - I wonder if you can write something about the picture? I wonder if you can think of your own sentence or perhaps you could write another ‘I can see’ sentence. I can see... 

It is up to you! If this is a bit tricky, you could have a go at writing some sounds/words.


3. Word of the day - Take a look at today's word of the day and have a go at the activity if you are able to. 


4. J2blast spellings - Click here to take you to the website/app where you can practise the words.

Literacy - The Enormous Turnip

Today we are starting a new story. This week's story is the The Enormous Turnip. There will be a little activity each day linked to the story! I have added the story below (plus a youtube link) and all the other resources you will need in one document. Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at sequencing the story using key pictures from the story. I wonder if you can retell the story using the key pictures? Think about the key language in the story. Enjoy!
