Read a book! A new one, a borrowed one, an old favourite, just read! Then discuss the book together (see some good questions below). If you’re not sure what a word says, sound it out or use the pictures to help you.


Reading Prompts


BEFORE READING - What can you see on the front cover? Who is the author? Who is the illustrator? Can you find the title? What does it say? What do you think is going to happen in this story?


DURING READING - What do you think will happen next? Do you know what that word/sentence says? What does that word mean? What is happening in the picture?


AFTER READING - Did you guess the ending correctly? Was that what you thought would happen? Who was your favourite character? Why? Can you tell me the story in your own words? What was your favourite part? Were there any parts you didn’t like? Why?



Literacy - Weekly focus: Jack and the Beanstalk


Look at this picture.


Do you know what this is? What do you think it is? How do you think it got there? What would you do if you saw this outside your window?


Share the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ together. There are two versions for you to look at.

You can also find this version on YouTube:

Talk about the story with your family. Can you retell the story to someone else in your own words?

Extra challenge: Why not try to write the story but change some things? Change the character, what is at the top of the beanstalk and what gets stolen. Can you make a book of your version of the story?



Maths - Weekly focus: 2D Shapes


Warm up - How high can you count in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s?


Can you create a picture using different 2D shapes. You could label the shapes you have used. Below are some pictures to help you.


Sing these 2D shape songs together

Shape song 1

Shape song 2


Can you see any 2D shapes around your house?





Practice the song below from our music sessions. 

Incy Wincy Spider (English and Spanish)

The incy wincy spider went up the water spout

Down came the rain and washed the spider out

Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain

And the incy wincy spider went up the spout again


La arana pequeñita

Subió, subió, subió. 

Vino la lluvia

Y se la llevo. 

Salio el sol

Y todo lo seco, 

Y la arana pequeñita

Subió, subió, subió.
