Hello everybody!


Well done for completing your first full week of home learning. Please find attached your new home learning activities for this week. There are tasks for maths, english, phonics and topic to complete each day. In addition to this please continue to read every day and practise your sounds in your sound book so that you can do them super speedily.


Our activities for english and topic this week are based around The Gingerbread Man.

In maths we will be continuing a sequnce of teaching videos from the 'white rose maths' website which focus on comparing mass and capacity. There are lots of practical activities to complete this week which focus on mathematical language including making playdough. It's a really simple no cook recipe which can be kept in the fridge in cling film and used several times.

For this you will need:

2 cups of flour

0.5 cups of salt

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

2 tablespoons of oil or baby lotion

1 cup of hot water

You could use the cutter from the gingerbread recipe to make playdough gingerbread men!
