Week 1 - Challenge of the day

Wednesday 18th March 2020 - How many facts can you remember about sea animals we have learnt about? You could make a poster, factfile or even just present these facts to someone in your house! 

Thursday 19th March 2020 - We have been focusing on writing simple sentences. Can you write 3 simple sentences about yourself?

Friday 20th March 2020 - Home Science Activity - Give your senses a work out with these five activities!


Sight – Play a game of ‘I Spy’ (this one is also handy for practising letter sounds!)

Smell – Put some smelly foods into cups or beakers, and cover with kitchen roll or paper, with small holes poked in. Challenge your child to work out what’s inside using only their sense of smell (mints, coffee granules, orange segments, curry powder and baked beans all work quite well).

Touch – Hide some toys in a box or under a blanket, then challenge your child to work out what they are using only their sense of touch. This is a great opportunity for them to practise describing how things feel.

Taste – Confuse the senses by adding some food colouring to drinks and see if your child can work out what they are (for example blue food colouring in milk, or red in some orange juice). For more daring eaters, they could try a blindfolded taste test of familiar foods!

Hearing – Have a ‘listening minute’, where children spend a whole minute just listening to the world around them, then talk about all the sounds they could hear afterwards. Were the sounds loud or quiet? Nearby or far away? High or low?


Here are a list of useful websites to keep you busy at home!

50 things to do before you're five -


Spring 1

This half term our topic has been 'Roar'. We enjoyed learning about all the different types of dinosaurs that existed. We had some fabulous home learning brought into school with some amazing creative work from home! We have enjoyed working on our writing skills and maths skills relating back to dinosaurs!


We loved learning 'The Gruffalo' story and thoroughly enjoyed taking our learning outdoors and exploring the wildlife area at school for this. We went on a Gruffalo hunt and had to look for clues what the Gruffalo had left us. We used positional language and created a map of where the Gruffalo had left his purple prickles. 


Autumn Term

This half term our topic has been 'Celebrations'. In Royal class we have looked at lots of different celebrations. We have spent time looking at the following: Remembrance Day, Children In Need, Diwali, Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas. We have enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities in provision and learning about what different people celebrate. Here are some pictures to show different activities we have done:

This half term we have also enjoyed learning stories through the use of story maps. As a class we have developed actions to help us retell some stories, which has helped us with our weekly writing. Some stories we have learnt are Owl Babies and Polar Bear Polar Bear What do you hear? Here are the story maps we have used to help us:
