Hello! Please find below work that you need to do at home if you are isolating. Please email your work to either; or


Day 1-


Please read your school reading book- if you have left your book bag at school please read a book from home.  When you have finished draw one of the characters. Use some adjectives to describe your character. eg smelly, beautiful, scary.


Find 10 objects in your house- these can be anything! Use them to write your number bonds to 10- Can you see a pattern? If I say 4 do you know the missing number bond? Ask your parents to give you a number and tell them the missing bond.


Look at the picture below. Use the senses to think about and talk about what you can see, hear, feel, smell. Write 6 sentences about the picture. Remember your capital letters, full stops, good sounding out and cursive handwriting!

If you find this really easy have a go at making your own fact families. Remember, the numbers do not change they only move to different areas in the number sentences. 



How did you manage with the cursive handwriting yesterday? Did you start on the line? Did all your letters have their bottoms on the line? Don't worry, today we are going to practise forming the letters to make sure we are confident. On your paper, practice a line of each lower case letter.


What an exciting lesson we have planned! Tell your adult something about where you live. Do you know which Country we live in? Do you know which continent we live in? See if you can find where we live on a map / globe.  Look at all the continents, how many are there? write all 7 continents down or you can complete the sheet below.  Watch the video below to find out more about continents.
