Hi children, we hope you’re all well. It’s been a long time since we’ve all seen each other but we hope you’re getting on ok with the home learning activities we set each week. Remember you can upload photos of your work straight to Purple Mash and these will then be marked and rewarded that way too – please give it a go.
We are still highly recommending the White Rose Materials to support your child in Maths at home. We are using these to support learners in class too. Next week’s story focus is Princess Mirrorbelle and the Dragon Pox by Julia Donaldson, you can hear it read here.
This week’s NRich task can be found here. Both activities are focussed on capacity and exploring this together through different means.
To support extending their problem solving skills through games and challenges please take a look at 'I see Maths' Ks1 games too.
Also encourage your child to use their Numbots login regularly for short bursts to practise their recall of number bonds and help to build their robots too. It is absolutely reasonable to type the answers in for them if they are fluently solving the questions but are not able to type them in quickly enough.
Phonics for Reception There are some excellent videos for teaching phonics here. The Set 1 video goes over the sounds we have already learnt, with a word time and spelling session and is shown at 9.30. Set 2 will be learning a new sound and spelling with this sound and is shown at 10 a.m.
Reception this week will be using the Oak Academy Materials, Week 7 English, based around The Hundred-Decker book and writing postcards. These lessons are best followed in sequence, starting with lesson 1. Included in the lesson are some phonics activities too as well as a quiz to recap the learning. Tap on the green buttons at the bottom of the page to make sure you do all the activities.
Online reading books are available here. Try to do a little bit of reading every day.
Practise handwriting every day.
Write a diary for your favourite days. There is a diary set up in your Purple Mash 2Dos. You can draw a picture and write a sentence or two about what you did. If you tap on the green tick at the top right hand corner, there is a writing checklist and on the left, some prompts to help you along.
There is a phonics activity for you on Purple Mash too.
Storytime with Nick
From Monday 20th April, Storytime with Nick will be released; films of well-loved stories read by Nick Cannon, a trained actor, teacher and trainer and a wonderful storyteller. See him in action here.
Where did the dinosaurs live?
By the end of this lesson you will:
Be able to say where some dinosaur remains have been found
Be able to talk about the kind of habitat some dinosaurs lived in
Recap the name of some dinosaurs and what we know about them.
Watch the presentation to learn about the kind of habitats that dinosaurs lived in and where their remains have been found. The earth looked very different millions of years ago. Look at the map of Pangaea and explain that this is what the earth was like at the time when the dinosaurs were alive. Pangaea was a supercontinent. At this time, most of the dry land on earth was joined into one huge landmass.
Complete the worksheet in your Purple Mash 2Dos.

There is a project called 30 Days Wild from the Wildlife Trust- which runs every day throughout the month of June. Can you do something 'wild' that links to nature every day during June? We'd love to hear about any that you manage to do- why not post a blog about what you have done? Scroll down to see the ideas here for each day.
