  • Use your sound string to recap on sounds or use phonicsplay: flashcards-speed trial. Try to beat your time each day.

Choose one activity (* is easiest, ** is medium, *** is hardest):

*Look through a book for words with the sound in. 

**Write a simple sentence with one of the words in?

***Write a question and a sentence using your words

You could also try watching Ruth Miskin Training on YouTube, we use these cards to teach the sounds to children but as a school follow a different scheme. If you are worried about teaching phonics this is something that you might like your child to watch.

Reception - watch set 2 speed sounds at 10am or 1pm

Year 1 - watch set 3 speed sounds at 10.30am or 1.30pm

Maths and Topic

Choose one blue activity (maths) and one red activity (topic) each day - you could do more if you want!

The *challenge is trickier if you want to challenge yourself. 


-Look at: Follow a recipe and weigh the ingredients needed to cook your own treat.

*write about your masterpiece. What did it taste like? How could you improve it?

-Use your bathroom scales to weigh your family. Can you put them in order of weight from the heaviest to lightest?

*Use the > or < symbol to say which item is heavier or lighter than another. Eg. Mum > me


-Use your kitchen scales to weigh a few different foods. Can you put them in order of weight from the heaviest to lightest?

*Can you record it in a sentence? For example The pineapple is heavier than the apple. The grapes are lighter than the banana.

-For some fun Easter maths go onto White Rose Hub, home learning Early Years activities OR

(if you can print)

*Year 1, week 1 weight activities.

-Make your own balance scales using a coat hanger similar to this:

F2 Update – Term 2 – Week 3 | Early Years

(if you don't have buckets and string you can use carrier bags)

Weigh items and use language such as: heavier, lighter, heaviest, lightest and balance to compare weights.

*make the scales balance by putting blocks, lego cubes the opposite side to the item you are weighing. Make statements such as: The pencil weighs the same as 4 blocks.


-Watch Andy’s Wild Workouts on CBeebies and move like different animals or watch Oti Mabuse on YouTube at 11.30am to learn and perform a Disney dance

*make up your own dance

-Paint a rainbow or make one with craft materials to display in your window and to give others hope.

*Go on a walk and see how many rainbows you can find. Record as a tally.

-Continue your seed diary to show the progress of your seeds (you could write, draw or take pictures)

-Use Purple Mash/ mini mash/ drawing and painting to create your own artwork. Maybe an Easter picture?

*save this into your tray so that your teachers can see it or learn how to print it

-Watch Ollie’s body percussion: Can you create your own pattern of body percussion?

*Write you pattern down using pictures or words

-Recap on the different coins and their values.

*Work with your parents to create a snack menu where you have to pay for your snacks each day. You could use just pennies or a range of coins.

We have no expectations for submitting work - below is an option available to you to use if you would like.

If you choose to send work in to the Class 1 teaching team, please photograph/scan and email it to them at .
