Literacy: The Three Little Pigs

This will be be our second and final week of looking at the story The Three Little Pigs. Before we move on to writing story maps it's really important that your child knows all the main points of the story and can retell it in their own words. So for today's lesson I'd like you to rewatch the video of the story and then use the finger puppets to retell the story orally. If you could video your child retelling the story and upload it to Tapestry that would be fantastic. Please dont worry if your child gets mixed up or doesn't retell all of the story - this is a skill we are going to practise lots and lots.


The puppets below do need to be printed out (or you could draw your own) and then they can be attached to lollipop sticks/straws or sticks for your child to use. 

The Three Little Pigs - Animated Fairy Tales for Children

Phonics - 'u'

Today's video is for the sound 'u'. We learn how to write this sound by saying 'down and under, up to the top, and draw the puddle’. Watch today’s video and then have a go at writing the sound on the sheet below. After you have done that why not try making 'u' out of playdough or writing it in a salt or glitter tray like this:


Maths - Number 10

Today I would like you to watch the F2 Maths 11.01.21 video over on Tapestry and then go on to watch the new NumberBlock episode for number 10. After that I would like you to have a go at the worksheet below and practise writing the number 10 in your Home Learning/Home Fun books.

From now on our Creative / Topic / Physical activities are going to follow a set pattern each week. We are going to explore:


Music Mondays (all about singing, music and instruments)

Technology Tuesdays (activities on apps, Busy Things, activities using a pc or tablet) 

Wellbeing Wednesdays (yoga, mindfulness, PE and relaxation)

Thinking Thursdays (Science, investigations, exploring the world and nature)

Fancy Fridays (art, making and creating)


Music Monday

Today we are going to go over to our friends at The Oak Academy and watch our first music lesson centred all around the outdoors and woodlands. I wonder if The Three Little Pigs used some of the trees we'll see today to build their house out of sticks?
