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 use my phonic knowledge to write words.


At the end of the story, ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’, a little boy saves the turtle because it was choking on Stanley. Tomorrow, we are going to write a letter to the little boy to thank him for what he did.

To help us with this letter, today we are going to make a word mat with some of the key words we will need to use.

We would like you to think really carefully about how to spell these words, using your phonic knowledge. Remember our success criteria for spelling with Fred Fingers:

  • Fred Talk the word
  • Count how many sounds
  • Pinch your fingers as you say the sounds
  • Write the word!


Here are some pictures of things you may want to include in your letter. There is also a template with pictures for you to label in an attached document. If you have other ideas of what you will want to include in your letter you could always draw your own pictures and label them ready to use tomorrow.



LO: I can use non-standard units to measure length.


Have you ever measured anything? Maybe you have been measured to see how tall you are, or perhaps you’ve had your feet measured for new shoes? What was used to do the measuring?

Today we will be comparing the size of different sea creature pictures by measuring them. What could we use to measure them? Did you know that you can measure things using cubes, Lego bricks, paper clips and even pasta!

Here are some simple steps to success for measuring objects using pasta!

Either use the linked document of pictures, or find a selection of toys from around your home and have a go at measuring them- why not try using pasta! How can you record your findings?

I measured some other creatures using my pasta. A stingray was 3 pieces long. Is it longer or shorter than the killer whale? How do you know? A blue whale was 12 pieces long. Is it longer or shorter than the killer whale? Can you order my sea creatures by size? Try comparing the objects you measured.


LO: I can show care for the environment.


One way we can reduce the amount of rubbish ending up in the sea is by recycling. Have a look at the Messy Magpie recycling PowerPoint. What can be recycled? How do we recycle? Why should we recycle? Talk to your grown up about what else you have learned.

Can you sort the rubbish into the correct recycling bins on the game below?


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