Week Beginning 07/2/22

This week we will continue our focus on 'Under the Sea'. 



If you did not have a go at any of last weeks learning (31.1.22), please have a go at some of those activities. If you have accessed last weeks learning you could have a go at some of these further ideas.


Recently, we have been thinking about rhyming words.


  • Can you try and find some matching pairs around your house? e.g., cat and a mat (you may need to use toys!) 
  • Can you write as many rhyming words as you can think of for these words? Hat, dog and cake
  • Can you have a go at writing your own silly rhyming sentence and drawing a picture? e.g., 'The dog sat on the frog.' Remember we need a capital letter at the beginning of the sentence and a full stop at the end!


Challenge: Each day, can you practise writing your name? Remember to use the RWInc handwriting phrase to help you remember how to write each sound in your name with the correct letter formation (You can find a list of these on the 'Phonics' section on the 'Early Years' part of the website). Try and make sure you hold your pencil with 'pinchy' fingers and make sure your letters sit next to each other. 



**PARENTS** Below is a video that shows how to say the 'pure' sounds of each of the sounds we learn in RWInc. It is important your child learns how to say these sounds correctly.


If you would like some RWInc videos saved on Tapestry, please send an email to your child's class email page and we will save some for you.


Your child will be familiar with the routine of these videos as they teach RWINC in the same way we do at school. Please encourage your child to interact where possible with these, the teacher will pause at times for your child to contribute. 


There are also some free phonic blending games you can play with your child on PhonicsPlay (click on the link below to take you directly to the website link):

This week we will continue our focus on 'Capacity'. 


If you did not have a go at any of last weeks learning (31.1.22), please have a go at some of those activities. If you have accessed last weeks learning you could have a go at some of these further ideas.


  • Each day, can you have a go at writing number 1-10, making sure you get your numbers around the right way. You can use the number formation rhymes saved under resources to help 
  • You could have a listen to some of these counting songs on BBC Teach:   
  • Can you get a grown up or someone in your family to give you a number and find and count that amount of something in your house? e.g., if you were given the number 8 you may find and count 8 socks
  • Can you write the numbers 1-10 on small pieces of paper and get someone to hide them around the room for you? Then, can you find them and see if you can put them back in the correct order? 


Topmarks has some online maths games you may wish to play. ;



This week we will continue to learn about Infant Baptism. If you were at school last week can you discuss with your grown ups why we might have a Christening, and what special events happen during a Christening? 


Here are some video links for you to watch showing a Christening taking place and also a story about a Christening:


A Christian baptism (pt 1/2) - KS1 Religious Education - BBC Bitesize


A Christian baptism (pt 2/2) - KS1 Religious Education - BBC Bitesize


A Christian baptism story - KS1 Religious Education - BBC Bitesize


Baptism celebrations - KS1 Religious Education - BBC Bitesize


Could you have a go at drawing some of the items you might find in a church relating to a Baptism? e.g., font, candle, gown.


RHE - This week is 'Children's Mental Health Week'. During our SCARF session, we will be focusing on this. There is more information and some other ideas/activities on the Place2Be website: 


Ask and discuss;

  • We know what our body is but what is our mind? (An example of a definition is ‘The part of a person that thinks, reasons, feels, understands, and remembers')
  • What might it mean to have a healthy mind?
  • What could we do to help our minds be healthy?
  • What makes us feel good?
  • What can we do to make our feelings good or better?


The Wellbeing Wheel

Introduce the wellbeing wheel (using the picture attached at the bottom of the page) and its five sections:

  1. Be active
  2. Give to others
  3. Mindfulness
  4. Be creative
  5. Connect with others


If your child is not sure about these then give examples:

  1. Be active - things that help us to keep physically fit, such as walking, running, exercise, playground games etc.
  2. Give to others - not just gifts, but things like time, kindness, a helping hand etc.
  3. Mindfulness - all about being calm and being in the moment. Includes activities such as quietly sitting with a book, slow breathing practise, taking notice of things around us, including nature, the weather etc.
  4. Be creative - any creative activity, for example singing, painting, dancing, model-making, mark-making etc.
  5. Connect with others - this can be people at home and in the wider family and people at school or other groups that children take part in. 


Can you think of some things that you can do throughout this week for each of the five areas to help you have a healthy mind? e.g., for 'Give to Others' you might make someone a nice card or help someone in your family.



If you have some resources available at home, you may like to try some of these craft ideas.
