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 questions to ask my new teacher.


Is there anything you’d like to know about your new teacher? Can you write a list of questions you’d like to ask your new teacher? You could ask them about some of their favourite things, their pets or their family. Remember to include a question mark at the end of your question!


LO: I can halve an amount.


Today we are going to look back at halving, can you remember what this means? It means to share an amount into two equal groups.

Today we are going to use pizza to practice our halving! Below is a picture of a pizza. Miss Gill and Mr. Gibbs are going to share this pizza between them so will be having half each.

They have a selection of toppings that they are also going to share so that they have half each. Can you half this pizza, either by cutting, folding or drawing a line through it, then share the toppings equally between the two halves?

The toppings they have to share are:

6 slices of pepperoni

4 mushrooms

8 peppers

4 pieces of chicken

10 pieces of sweetcorn

You can either draw these toppings on, draw them and cut them out, or you could even make a real pizza with them on!


LO: I am sensitive towards the feelings of others.


In September you will be returning to school as year 1- how are you feeling about this? Take a look at the poster and talk about the words that describe how you are feeling about the changes ahead.

Some of you will be feeling happy and excited about starting year 1, seeing your friends again and getting to know your new teachers and TAs. However, not everyone will be feeling like this, and we all need to understand that everyone is different and everyone has worries from time to time- this is OK! What could you do to help a friend who is feeling worried, upset, nervous, scared or stressed? If you are feeling like this, talk to your grown ups or siblings about it- they will try to help you.

Maybe you have questions you’d like to ask about being in year 1, or about your new teacher? You may also want to know more about what school will be like when you return. Your grown up may be able to answer some of your questions, but if they do not know the answer they can email the school or send a message on Tapestry- we are here to help you!

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