What's happening today?

Say our daily prayer and look at our visual timetable to see what jobs you have lined up for today.


Today in handwriting, we are starting to practice writing the letters that belong to the 'Zigzag Monsters' letters family. Today we will focus on learning the letter v


As an extra challenge see if you can write some words using the letter v. You could try the words vet, van and very.


Click on the link below to see a BBC video on all of the zigzag monster letters.


You all have the link to the lessons related to the sound sets that your child is learning. Your child also needs to look at the spelling videos as part of their phonics too. These have been shared with you. Start from lesson 1 of these videos and do 1 a day. They are working retrospectively, so your child should be starting to get familiar with the sounds they are being asked to spell with. If you cannot find your link or you have forgotten which sounds your child is learning please send me a message on Dojo.




Visit the Oxford Owl website to access their free e-library, which has Read Write Inc Phonics books to match where your child is at in phonics, and book banded books to match your child's school reading book level. You all have the login details for our class account to this site, but if you can't remember it please send me a message on Dojo.


You can also use books from your child's own book shelf for reading together, and you can now also join Earl Shilton's digital library. Don't worry if you're not a member of Earl Shilton Library, you can now join online. Just follow the link:


Physical Activity


For our physical activity this week we are off to the Dough Disco with Mrs. Oliver and Miss White. Each day either Mrs. Oliver or Miss White will take you and your dough to the disco for a finger workout!


Today we're going to Dough Disco with Miss White! Click the link to access the video.



For today's Literacy lesson we are going to have a reading task. This week we are looking at a piece of non-fiction all about dinosaurs. Remember, non-fiction means that this is not a story, but it is writing that is telling us some facts or information. I would like you to look at and read text below and then answer the questions or do the matching activity as appropriate. All of the questions are about what you have read, so if you are unsure of an answer go back and re-read the text. Try to read as much of the text as you can by yourself. Remember to use your sounds when blending words, and keep an eye out for those special friends. If you get really stuck ask your grown up at home to help you. Click on the link below to access the video lesson.


If you are in Mrs. Oliver and Miss White's phonics groups (SET 2 Sounds) you need to do Dinosaur Text 1, If you are in Mr. Wright's phonics group (SET 3 Sounds) you need to do Dinosaur Text 2. Click on the links below to access your non-fiction text and questions.


In Maths today we are thinking about representing numbers to 50.  Please watch the lesson video and then have a go at the worksheet.

5 Minute Mindfulness Meditation

Take a few moments today for this Mindfulness Meditation activity. We always start every afternoon with some meditation just to help us, relax, focus and turn off from the business of the day for a few minutes. Click on the link below to access the meditation.

Wednesday Well-Being: Make your own teacher!


For this week's 'Wednesday Well-Being' we want you to show us your creative side!  We would like you to make a collage or junk model of any of the adults in school out of stuff you find lying around the house.  I've put a couple of examples below.  You can choose any materials you like (remember what we learned in Science - all objects are made from materials) and just go wild!  I can't wait to see what you do! Have lots of fun!  Don't forget to upload a photo on Dojo.

End of Day Story

Today our story is 'Snore'.  I hope you like it!
