This Week's Home Learning
Term 3 Week 1
Things are a little bit different for the next few weeks so this post is to explain how the home learning activities will be shared each week. At the beginning of every week you will find an overview on the Willow Class blog. There will be a daily blog post to explain in more detail what your learning is for that day. All resources and links will be attached.
Each day’s learning will consist of the following:
At least 20 minutes reading – to be noted in your reading record
A phonics activity
An English activity
A maths lesson with a recorded learning video and activity ideas
A wider learning activity for either: RE, science, art, topic, ICT or PE
Here is an overview of the week:
Reading- While learning from home, you should be aiming for at least 20 minutes reading per day. You could read the book that is in your book bag or pick a book from home.
Maths- We will upload a learning video for you to watch and some maths activities for you to complete about adding by counting on.

Once you have listened to the story, talk about your favourite part of the story and think about what happened in each part of it. Can you draw a map of Curtis, Bertha and Gertie’s journey to the picnic at Friary Wood? Can you retell the story in the right order?
