Week 1 - Week beginning 04.01.21

Wednesday 6th January


Please find some home learning tasks for this week on this page, this week's home learning activities are a mixture of the activities and tasks that we were going to be focussing on in school this week.


Next week's home learning will be more focussed with regular phonics and maths activities as well as literacy activities linked to a story (as we do in class). I will also be adding some science, history, geography and art activities and tasks from next week too.

We have a plan

I have added  a video of me reading Shh! We have a plan, click here to view it.

I have also added a document with some activity ideas linked to the story below.

Feelings and emotions

Black Cat Sounds

Please click here to access a video of Miss Gilbody saying the sounds and doing the actions for the black cat sounds.

Children could practise recognising the sounds and saying the sound and doing the action. Parents could pause the video at various points and encourage their child to write a particular sound or to think of a word beginning with a particular sound. Once your child has given you a word, they could have a go at sounding out and writing the word. As a challenge, your child could have a go at writing a sentence containing their word.

Our Year R children will focus on the last few black cat sounds in their phonics home learning in the next couple of weeks as well as looking at some different monster sounds as well.

Meet the Monsters

This powerpoint also introduces the Monster Phonics monsters. If you have issues opening the powerpoint, you may need to save the powerpoint to your device before it will open.
