All Phonics learning and activities can be found on Tapestry.



This week we are introducing our new topic 'Rumble in the Jungle' by looking at what animals live in the jungle. First of all, create a mind map with your child of what springs to mind when they hear the word 'jungle'. This may be anything from trees, to tigers, to creepy crawlies!


Next, I have attached a Power-point which on each slide, shows some binoculars looking around a photo of an animal. Your child can guess what animal it is and then clock to reveal if they were correct. 

Next, I have uploaded some video's of some of these animals that your child can watch.

Your child could have a go at creating a collage or painting of some of their favourite jungle animals. Ask them to think carefully about what colours they are, do they have fur, scales, wings...?


I have also uploaded some animal sounds. Play each sound for your child and see if they can guess which animal is making that noise. This is good for their listening skills.

Writing Challenge

This week, due to Monday being an inset day, the children have not had chance to complete their 'Weekend news' piece of writing. For their writing challenge your child can write about what they have done during their half term week. Please do not help your child, this needs to be a completely independent piece of work. You can remind them of how to use their 'robot arms' to sound out words and show them the attached sound mat if they are struggling to remember how to write the digraphs and trigraphs or tricky words (sheet 2 on the document). Afterwards they can draw a picture to accompany their writing.

Marvellous Maths

This week we are looking at making pairs.

Session 1 - Watch the video with your child and then have a go at making pairs using soft toys. Ask your child to choose a number of toys (any number between 1 and 10) and then ask them to put them into pairs. Can they make an equal number of pairs with this amount of teddies or is there one left out? Your child could write this into a table. Draw out 2 columns, one with a tick at the top and the other with a cross. They will then write the numeral under the correct column depending on if it make equal pairings or not. Explain which numbers are called 'even' numbers and which are called 'odd' and why. 

Session 11 - Even & Odd

Session 2 - Please watch the video with your child and then watch the reading of the story 'One Odd Day'. Your child can then have a go at creating a picture with odd numbers of items in it. Remind them of the odd numbers and then they can create their picture (look at the PDF document for ideas).
