Monday 1st February

Hello everyone!

Hope you have had a good weekend!


This week is Children's Mental Health week.

We shall be thinking about how we can be mindful and how we can look after our mental health and wellbeing.




Remember to click on the butterfly icon on our front page to go to our Well-being section for lots of activities to try. 


Challenge of the day!



Draw a picture of yourself in a wacky outfit.

We are continuing with Phase 4 of our Phonics learning.

We will now be learning to read words with consonant blends at the beginning and end of a word.

If your child can recognise most of all the Phase 2/3 sounds and read the Phase 2 and 3 tricky words then they are ready for Phase 4.

If you feel that your child still needs more practise with Phase2/3 please re-visit the previous weeks learning and try some other games on the suggested websites on our front class page.

Practise reading these consonant blends.


How many of these Phase 4 tricky words can you read?


You say this sentence and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words and sound out each word.


The  frost  is  on  the  tree.


Challenge 1 - if your child can write this sentence easily add in some describing words e.g. The bright frost is on the tree.

Challenge 2 - Can they write another sentence about the frost?


I can show understanding by answering questions about a text.

Listen carefully to the story about Kipper's Toybox by Mick Inkpen then answer the questions underneath to show how well you have listened and understood the text.

Kipper's Toybox by Mick Inkpen

Kipper finds that someone has nibbled a hole in Kipper's toy box. He empties out his toys and begins to count them. Each time he counted his toys he got a different number of toys. Feeling angry and scared he puts his toys in his basket after he loses Sock Thing, which was his favourite toy.

Challenge - Can you read the question word at the beginning of the sentence? 

Do you remember some other question words that begin with 'w'?


Can you read the words and label the items in the toybox?

Challenge - can you write what else you might find in the toybox?


I can sort and match for a given criteria

You will need lots of your toys for today's maths lesson.

Have a go at the activities below - you will need to use your sorting and matching skills.


Same and different

Match all the toys that are the same (toys with ears, toys with tails, toys with no tails, toys with wings, toys with/without legs) Talk and explaining is very important in maths - you need to tell your adult how you have sorted your toys.


Sorting and matching



  • Sort toys into big and little toy boxes 
  • Find the smallest and biggest toy in the toy box
  • Order toys by size



I can recognise and name different materials.

Materials. Our Toys topic is a good opportunity to look at the different materials that toys are made from. Read through the powerpoint with your child - you may need to pause each page - and see what items they recognise. Can your child name the different materials. Ask you child to look at their toys and see if they can find a toy made from each of the materials.

Challenge - Ask your child why they did not find any toys made from glass.

I can use meditation to help calm my mind.
