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?

If yesterday was the 24th, what is today? What is one more than 24... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song and the months of the year song below.

Basic skills

1. Handwriting - I wonder if you can practise writing this sentence - The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. (document below). It uses all the letters in the alphabet, so it is really useful!


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.

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see Thursday's Collective Worship.

1.) Daily devotion. 2.) Prayer time (I wonder if you can say or write your own prayer with adult).

3.) Practise singing the Hail Mary with sign language (video below).

Literacy - Mr. Wolf's Pancakes

Today we are continuing our new story of Mr. Wolf's Pancakes.

I have added the story powerpoint below 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 filling in the missing words in the speech bubbles. Have a go at reading the words in the sentence and look at the picture clues to write the correct sound/word.

Little Big Maths

Please take a look at this week's Little Big Maths powerpoint (resource below). These are basic skills to practise throughout the week.


Take a look at the slides below and if you are able to, have a go at this week's focus task. Today's lesson is all about different types of lines. If you are able to, have a go at drawing some of the different types of lines. Once you have practised, you could use some of the different lines to create a picture.

I have also added three pieces of music below. Have a listen to each piece (you don't need to listen to the whole song). How does each piece of music make you feel? What lines might you draw when listening to the music? You might draw a wavy line when the music is slow or a zig zag line when the music is fast. Enjoy! smiley
