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 read simple sentences.


In our story, ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’, different animals keep eating Stanley and the book gives us clues about which animal eats him each time.

Can you read the following clues and match them up with the correct sea creature? Some are from the story, but we have also included some others who may find themselves at risk because of rubbish in the sea!

I have sharp teeth in my big mouth.

I am very long. I have a big mouth a bumpy skin.

I can fly. I have a yellow beak that helps me catch fish.

I am green. I have a round shell and can go on land.

I like to play. I have a round nose and a fin on my back.

For an extra challenge, you could write some of your own clues about some other sea creatures!


LO: I can solve problems involving size.


Draw pictures to solve these word problems about size. You may need your grown-up to read them to you and you will need red, blue, green, black and brown pens or pencils. (Remember, eels are snake-like fish).

  1. The red eel is longer than the blue eel.
  2. The green eel is shorter than the black eel but the brown eel is the shortest.
  3. The black eel is double the length of the blue eel.
  4. The brown eel is half the length of the red eel.
  5. The green eel is thinner than the red eel and the black eel is the thickest.


LO: I can use a variety of resources to construct with a purpose in mind.


Turtles are another animal that we need to protect as they can mistake plastic bags and straws for food. Using a paper plate or bowl, can you make a turtle? You could colour, paint or collage his shell and cut out his hands and face from paper. Could you make a pattern on his shell?


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