Home Learning Week Beginning 6th October

Week Beginning 12th October 2020


While your child is self isolating for the next 14 days, this is where you will find the learning tasks to be completed over the week. Please support your child with their learning to ensure that their learning is as least interrupted as possible. But most of all, have fun!




This week our Literacy focus is the story 'My Mum and Dad make me laugh' by Nick Sharratt.

Please share this book with your child.

My Mum and Dad Make Me Laugh

Please make sure you read this book at least 3 times. Repetition ensures that your child understands the story and is able to retell the story in their own words. It also helps with their vocabulary and sentence formation.


Task 1:


Draw a picture of yourself and your family and talk about what you like doing at home. Talk about what makes you laugh. 


Write the sentence 'My Mum and Dad make me laugh' on two pieces of paper (as shown below). Cut up one of the pieces of paper so the words are separate. Get your child to match the words to the sentence on the first sheet of paper.


For a challenge, see if your child can copy the sentence, using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. 


Task 2: On a piece of paper, write 'My Family' at the top. Draw the members of your family and write their names underneath (you can write it for them to copy). 


Task 3: Make a name card and decorate it using different materials. 


Task 4: EVERYDAY practice writing your name




Phonics should be done EVERY DAY. Whether it is just a recap, a game or practicing writing words with the sounds they have learnt.


Practice the sounds we have already learnt - s, a, t, p, i, n

Counting 1-10 Song

Task 1: Can you find 5 different small objects around your house?


Make a 5 frame like the one below and practice counting different amounts onto the  frame. How many different ways can you show 3, 4 and 5?

Task 2: Using your 5 frame and objects, complete the number sentences below. Practice writing the number sentence and the answer. 


1 + 2 = 3 + 1 = 
1 + 1 =  2 + 2 = 
3 + 0 =  4 + 1 = 
0 + 4 =  2 + 3 = 
5 + 0 =  1 + 0 = 


Why don't you challenge yourself and write some of your own number sentences to 5?


Task 3: Get some toys or pictures of animals and dolls or people. Can you sort them into two groups? How could you sort them? Can you sort them into how many legs they have? Can you sort them into colours? Can you sort them into animals and people? What other ways could you sort them?


Task 4: Make your own number line using different resources. You could make a picture number line and take pictures of different amounts of objects for each number.



This week in PSHE we are talking about our feelings and emotions. Have a look at the pictures below and discuss what you think the child in that picture is feeling. Why do you think they feel that way? Can you make your face look like theirs?

Talk about some of the things that can make us feel this way.




Children need regular exercise, and that's hard to do when you are stuck inside! Here are a few videos to keep you active, or have a look around for some of your own - or make up your own exercises!
