Good Morning Year R, please see below the activities we would like you to do today. Remember you can take photos (if you have made, shown or drawn something) or use your exercise book to write any sentences or complete any number sentences. You can ask your grown-up to put your work on Tapestry so we can see what you have been up to. Also, please use this link to access daily speed sound phonics:

We hope you have fun!


LO:  I can independently write sentences.


This week we are going to be learning about the story ‘Somebody swallowed Stanley’.

Here is a link to the story for you to listen to:

In the story, Stanley gets confused for a jellyfish and keeps getting eaten! What is Stanley really and how did he get in the sea? Why is it so dangerous for rubbish like plastic bags to get into the sea?

This video by the author of the book tells us a little bit about why we need to stop polluting our oceans:

How can we make sure that plastic bags do not get into the sea and put the animals at risk?

Can you make a list of rules that people should follow when they go to the beach to keep it clean and tidy?

Do you always follow these rules? Speak to your grown up about how you can make sure you follow these rules when you go to the beach.


LO: I can use everyday language to talk about size to compare objects.


Here are some photographs of eels. They are snake-like fish.

Using either strips of paper or play-dough can you make 3 different size eels.

Can you describe the size of your eels? Here are some words you could use:

long, short, thick, thin

Now compare your eels. Can you use the words longer, longest, shorter, shortest, thinner, thinnest, thicker, and thickest?

Can you put your eels in order of size? This can be to your own criteria, e.g. thinnest to thickest or longest to shortest etc. Explain your order to a grown-up.


LO: I can show care for the environment.


Have a look at the pictures of the ocean. Can you see what the problem is? How could you help?

Think about the list of rules you wrote in literacy. Can you pick one rule and make a poster about it to remind people what they need to do? You could tell them why this rule is important and draw pictures to show them what to do/what will happen if they don’t.


Can you make up a song that tells other children how they can help keep the sea clean and safe for the animals?

Stay safe, best wishes from Miss Gill, Miss Baldwin and Mrs Gedge xxx
