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.


Today we are going to write a letter to the little boy in the story. You may choose to write the letter from yourself, or you could pretend to be Stanley or the turtle.

When you are writing your letter we would like you to think about these things:

What are you thanking him for? Why is it good that he did what he did? You could also tell him some of your ideas to stop it from happening again or ask him for help to keep the beaches clean.

Here are some Red words to use alongside your word mat from yesterday to help you with your writing:

Try to remember your full stops, capital letters and finger spaces to make your letter easier to read and remember our success criteria for writing sentences:

  • Say the whole sentence
  • Count how many words
  • Fred talk each word


LO: I can talk about weight to compare objects.


What does weight mean?

It is a measure of how heavy or light an object is. Can you find a heavy object and a light object in your home? Talk about how it feels to lift the two objects.

We can use the words heavier, lighter, heaviest, lightest and equal when we compare the weight of objects.

In term 3, at school, we used balance scales to help us to compare the weight of two objects. Can you remember how they work? Look at these pictures and talk about what the scales are telling us about the weight of the sand, Lego and marbles. Try to use the key words above.

Now, using your knowledge of sea creatures can you arrange them on the balance scale pictures so they make sense. Can you explain your choices?

(printable sheet available)

Super challenge! Here, the larger the creature the heavier it is. Are large objects always heavier than smaller objects?


LO: I can experiment with colour and design.


Do you know the names of any fish? The orange and white fish below is called a clown fish like Nemo from Finding Nemo. Can you use your handprint to make a sea picture? You could paint your hand or draw around your hand. You could paint or colour the background first, think about what colour the sea is and what else you would find under water.

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