‘Through kindness, teamwork and determination we thrive.’

Wednesday 3rd February

Daily Jobs: 

1. Practice your letters. This could be writing in flour, sand, with paints, chalk or pens! Whichever you would like to use. Today our letter is 'u' here is a video to help:

2. Reading. You could read your school book, a story from EPIC, Oxford Owl or homemade flashcards. I have also uploaded a few sentences which you could read if you would prefer. 


LI: To read and write the short 'oo' sound

Here is a song to recap the digraphs we have learnt so far.

Today Mr MC is teaching us all about the short 'oo' sound like in 'hook' and 'foot'

Here is a game to play too.


LI: to read an instruction. 

Before watching my video could I ask parents to hide something for the children to find in the following places: in the sink, near the coats and under a chair, next to a teddy. We will complete the activity on the video so there isn't a follow up but you may with to create more instructions with your child if they are still engaged and eager to do so.

LI: to combine 2 groups

Warm up our brains with this counting song -

Today Miss Cooper is teaching you all about combing 2 groups (addition) 

Here is the link (Session 3)

I have uploaded the activity below with an optional extra. 

I have also added the video this week incase the other link isn't working.

Understanding The World. 

Today it is time to test our boats!! Have you managed to design and create a boat that can float? If you have - well done!! If your boat sinks, what could you do to change it? Could you add something or change the material you have used?

Don't forget to send me a photo of the results. Perhaps you could send me a video and complete the sentence: My boat floats/sinks. I have used.... 

Today is the end of our experiment. I am very pleased with all of your hard work! 


I have noticed lots of you have already tested the boats which is great - you are a day ahead of me! I had uploaded some pirate hat crafts which you could do if you have already completed todays lesson.
