4th-8th May


We are going to continue using the White Rose Maths schemes of work, with this weeks book being 'The Hungry Caterpillar'

You can watch the animated film here before you start https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75NQK-Sm1YY. I recommend having a look through the slides before each maths activity, as some need household resources!





Revisit all phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. 

Have a listen to the phase 4 tricky word song to revisit some other tricky words you have learnt already https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NOzgR1ANc4

Have a look at these new tricky words were there little one. Write the words on different pieces of paper and stick each one to a different door in your house. These are now your new passwords to get through the door, so every time you go through you have to high five it and say the word! Can you say them all by the end of the day?

Try reading the words in these sentences

Were there some chimps at the zoo?

Yuck! There was a paint brush in the coffee cup.

One little brown toad got stuck down a drain.



Revisit all phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. 

Today we are looking at 2 syllable words that contain adjacent consonants (two consonants together). Write the word lunch and sound talk together. Then write the word box and sound talk together. Now put the words together and sound talk the word lunchbox. Can you clap the syllables? Now try with the words windmill, treetop, starlight. Have a go at writing these words, finding the sounds on a sound mat.

Now try reading these words in a sentence:

You put a shampoo sandwich in my lunchbox.

Ring the helpdesk and tell them my cat is stuck.

I stuck a little windmill in this sandpit.




Revisit all phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. 

Today we are looking at spelling words that contain adjacent consonants (two consonants together). Revisit some compound words from yesterday. 

Have a go at filling in the missing words on these pictures


Can you pick 3 words and write them in to a sentence?

Have a try at 'hidden tricky words!' 

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/phase-4-tricky-words-hidden-words-phonics-game-t-l-527703 Find the letters in the picture and rearrange them to make a tricky word! If you can't print the sheets, you could ask a grownup to write a tricky word with each letter on a separate piece of paper and ask them to hide them for you to find and rearrange! 


Can you say a sentence with your tricky words? Can you write a sentence with your tricky words? 



Fun Friday! 







This week, I would like you to complete the final section of 'Mavis the Magic Cat'.


Pages 25-31 help you to learn about poetry, describing words and labels. Try and complete this over the week, ready to start our new exciting writing booklet next week!



We are starting a new topic this week and our new big question is 'Is Everybody's House the Same?' Through our small questions, we will be exploring homes in our country, homes around the world, different materials homes are made off and unusual homes people live in. 



'What is your home like?'

Have a look around the inside and the outside of your house. What type of house is it? Is it on its own, stuck to another house or stuck to lots of other houses? Does it have a chimney? How many windows can you count? What is your house made from? Does it look the same as next doors? How many rooms are in your house? Which is the biggest and which is the smallest? 


Draw a picture of the inside of your house on one page and the outside on another. Can you draw the different things in each room? You could take photos or cut out furniture from magazines too if you want. Can you label the rooms? Don't forget to draw everyone who lives with you! 

There are some resources here to help if you need it:





Can you write a sentence about your favourite room in your house?




'What are the homes like on your street?'

Have a look at this powerpoint https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-2545400-houses-and-homes-description-powerpoint

What type of house do you live in? 

Walk around your street (if you can). Can you spot the different types of houses from the powerpoint? Which type of house could you spot the most? What numbers did you spot on your walk? Which could you not find? Does your house look the same or different to the houses on your street? What is the houses on your street made from? 

Can you make a junk model of your house? 



'Where do animals live?' 

Have a look at these different animals.




Can you find out where they live? An animals home is called a habitat. Can you compare the different homes? How might you feel if you lived in home like theirs? Can you make a poster about their different homes?

Use these videos to help you: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/resources/1



'Who lives in a house like this?' 

Have a look at these different types of houses.


Can you find out where in the world you might find these houses? Who might live in them? Why are they made out of different materials to us? Which house might you like to live in? 

This video will take you to lots of different homes:



Can you label the materials used on the different houses?



VE Day! 

Victory in Europe Day - also known as VE Day - celebrates the Allied Forces accepting the Nazi’s unconditional surrender from World War 2. The final document was signed on 8 May 1945. Today, countries throughout the world celebrate VE Day annually, on either 8 or 9 May. 


How was VE Day celebrated in 1945? 

There were street parties and parades throughout the Western world - especially in the UK and the USA. More than a million people took to the streets in Great Britain, with the greatest crowds in London. The day was declared a national holiday with pubs opening late. This year, our celebrations will look a little bit different and people will be celebrating at home, by decorating their houses, baking and taking part in a 2 minute silence.


Have a watch of this video below: 



Can you make a model/picture of a soldier to put in your window? 

Can you make some red, white and blue decorations for your window to celebrate? 

You could take part in some baking https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/at-home-ve-day-tea-party-recipes-t-tp-2549813
