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 3rd, what is today? What is one more than 3... 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.

Months of the Year Song
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.
Today we are continuing our new story of The Three Little Pigs. 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 imagine that you are the wolf and you are writing a sorry letter to the Three Pigs. Think about what the wolf might want to say sorry for. Did he scare the pigs? What did he do to their houses? You might just like to have a go at writing one sentence. Or if this is a bit tricky, you could just write some sounds/words. Remember you have the story word mat to help you with lots of key words, your high frequency table and your sound mat if you get stuck.
You can start your letter by writing...
Dear thethree pigsor Dear the 3 pigs,
Here are some examples of things you could say sorry for:
I have highlighted high frequency words in green and words that can be found on the story word mat in blue. I hope this is helpful.
Music - To be able to explore high and low (pitch) sounds when singing.
1. Practise singing this week's Nursery rhyme - Oats and beans and barley grow.
2. Read the story 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. If you have a copy of the story at home, perhaps you can read this with an adult. If not, I have added a youtube version of the story below.
3. Think about the voices of the bears - High/low sounds. This is known as pitch - how high or low a sound is.
In the story, whose voice is low? Whose voice is high?
4. Watch the video all about pitch - high/low sounds.
5. Learn/practise singing the Three Bears rap - Can you join in and do a low pitched voice for Daddy bear? What about a high pitched voice for Baby bear?
1. Oats and beans and barley grow
2. Goldilocks and the Three Bears
4. We're going to sing high, low, and in the middle
5. Three Bears rap lyrics (audio track below)
