⭐Wake and Shake every morning on Tapestry to get you ready for your busy day learning at home!⭐


Literacy: Chinese New Year

Did you manage to find out which animal this year is named after? Well done if you found out that 2021 is the Year of the Ox!


Today I would like you to rewatch the story of Chinese New Year and use the puppets below to act out the story as you watch it. Can you look at the Tales Toolkit symbols first and answer the 4 questions - Characters? Setting? The problem? The solution?

Phonics: Sound Blending 11 and recap of 'y'

Today's Sound Blending at Home video will be lesson 11 and then afterwards there is the recap video for 'y'. After you have watched the video's I would you like you to choose an online timer and see how many times you can write the sound 'y' in one minute!


Maths: Time

Today we are going to explore the days of the week in a bit more detail and make a timeline of the things we do each day. You can think of the things that you would normally do if we weren't in Lockdown - perhaps you have a swimming lesson or you visit a family member on a certain day? Here is the link to the video and the timeline sheet for you to complete afterwards.

Safer Internet Day 2021

Over the years, Safer Internet Day has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in approximately 170 countries worldwide. From cyberbullying to social networking to digital identity, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and current concerns. 

Talking to young children about online safety is essential because technology is becoming an integral part of children’s lives; it entertains them, engages them and motivates them. One introduction to online safety is through stories. In the video below I read a story about a little chicken that does for too much clicking on the internet, with disastrous consequences! I hope you enjoy it. At the end of the story there is a task for you to do so please keep listening 🐤🐣🐤
