Tuesday 19th January 2021 


Morning Movement

Have a go at Joe Wick’s 5 or 8 minute children’s workouts (see The Body Coach channel on youtube) or choose one of the activities from the ‘Be Active’ area on Remote Learning page. 



Recap the Phase 2 and 3 sounds we have learnt using flashcards or play Flashcards Speed Trial on Phonics play: (username:jan21, password:home). 


Tricky word Hunt: Write 10 tricky words (I, go, to, the, no, he, she, we, me, my) on individual pieces of paper/post-it notes. Make sure to write each word a different amount of times and hide around the house/garden. 


Next, write a list of the words to find on a piece of paper for your child to take around with them as they go on a hunt. As your child finds each word, they can record the amount of times using a tally mark on the sheet. When you have found all the words, count the tally marks to find out which tricky word has won! Maths sneaks in this activity too J



Today we are going to learn about fire safety through the story ‘No Dragons for Tea’:


After listening to the story, answer the following questions:

  1. What made the Dragon sneeze?
  2. What noise did the smoke alarm make? 
  3. What did the girl do when the room filled with smoke?
  4. Where is the safe meeting point outside?
  5. Why did the dragon try to go back inside? 


When they heard the smoke alarm in the story, everyone knew it meant they needed to “get out fast”. If you hear your smoke alarm you need to carefully get out your home, going your normal way out if it is safe and never stay inside. Find out with your parents where the smoke alarms are in the house. 


Today, I would like you to design your own simple fire safety poster to show something you have learnt from the story. Include a picture and challenge yourself to write a word/sentence to match. 



Yesterday we started to learn about weight. We predicted which objects were heavier/lighter then tested our own objects on a measuring scale. 


Look at the image below. 

Which object is heavier? Is the bigger object always heavier? Adults to find some bigger (lighter) objects and help child to test their weight against other objects using the measuring scale from yesterday or feel using hands. Lead child to discover that just because something is large it doesn’t mean it is heavier. 


Next, I would like you to estimate which animal is heavier and lighter using the sheet below. Estimate means to make a good guess. 



Choose one of the activities from the ‘Fire Fighters’ topic grid.  



And don’t forget to listen to your child read at some point during the day. Use the sound booklets available in the Class R reading folder on Teams or choose a book from the Pink level books on Oxford Owl E-library.
