Here is some learning for Week 5 of Spring 1. Click on the links below for some of the learning from the week. 


For Literacy we have been looking at drawing a dragon (inspired by Zog and the flying doctors) and what their talent is, and what they need to get better at. They can draw and label their dragon and then write some sentences. 




My dragon is good at keeping people warm. 


It needs to get better at sitting down quietly. 


Any questions please Dojo us. 


Thank you


Mrs Norton








Below are some resources to complete whilst you're home learning and if you are well enough. 


In literacy, read the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. Discuss the beginning, middle and end of the story. Who are the characters are in the story? What is the setting? Then look at the look at the 'pictures to order' activity. Can you re-order them to show the beginning, middle and end? Then, retell a part of the story and write your sentences. Think carefully about each sound you can hear in the word and have a go forming the letters. Use the sound mat below to help you find and form the letters. 

 If you aren't sure after lots of trying, ask your grown-up to help you form the letters and then you can copy it carefully. 


In maths we are looking at the concept of one more and one less than a given number to 5. CHildren often find one less harder therefore we have provided 3 levels depending on where your child is. 


Step one challenge - this is practical. Build a tower or out a number of objects to 5 in the middle column. Ask your child to add one more for finding one more and to take one away - give you one etc to find one less


Step two challenge - the middle column has the amount of pigs. Draw the amount with one more to the right of the column. Encourage the children to cross one off to find one less so that they can draw one less in the left hand column. 


Step 3 challenge - The children are given pictures of numicon to 10. they can then write a number which is one more and one less than the given numicon number. 




In phonics, we are learning the Read Write Ink sounds - c, k, u, b, f, e, l, h, r and j. Please watch the video below to help you say the sounds. Then, use the letter formation rhymes on the picture below to help you form your letters. Can you think of any words beginning with these sounds? Can you write the word using your Fred fingers? 


We are also doing lots of Christmas performance rehearsal this week. Please keep practising your lines so you are super confident at them on your return. 


Please see below some extra links for learning games to practise our learning further. 


Please send your completed learning by taking photos or videos to your Dojo Portfolio. 


I look forward to seeing you soon. 


Many thanks, Mrs Norton
