Home learning from this week

Wearing odd socks to support anti-bullying week.

Thank you for joining in and wearing odd socks to support anti-bullying week. Did you discuss yesterday with your adult why we should be kind to people and not mean? Did you talk about how you feel if someone is mean to you and what you should and shouldn't do if someone is mean to you? Did you draw a picture of all of the kind things that you do? Remember if someone is mean to you at school, always tell an adult so we can help you, do not be mean back. Remember yesterday's mindfulness video, we don't want to catch the 'mean bug'. Please send in any discussions and pictures to your class email address. 

Here are the odd sock pictures that you have sent in. Some faces you can see and some faces you can't see. Can you guess who's are whose?

That's right - it's 2 letters that make 1 sound. Please watch the phonic videos below, you will need a piece of paper and a pen/pencil. After you have finished watching the videos please complete the activities below: 

  • Write the sound ss 10 times. 
  • Practise writing 'ss' in a sensory tray such as cornflour and water, sand, sprinkles.
  • Have a try at writing these words and reading them:                                                                                                                   mess    kiss    fuss    goss    fess    sniss    press    boss    less                                Can you sort them into real words and nonsense words?

Wow! We have seen some fantastic measuring work. If you haven't already please send in pictures of your child measuring to your child's class email address:

Leeds class:

York class:

Please continue your learning on measuring. Please encourage your child to use the correct mathematical vocabulary by modelling this to them: tallest/ shortest    longer/shorter       longest/shortest. You can look back on the previous days of measuring and complete these activities below.


  • Ask your child to find things that are longer or shorter than another object- can you find me something that is longer than .... can you find me something that is shorter than... 
  • Split a piece of paper in half - can you draw things that you are shorter than and things that you are taller than.
  • Measure objects around your home with pens/crayons/cubes or any other object.Compare one object with another-e.g "This book is 8 crayons long.... This doll is 10 crayons long... that means the book is shorter than the doll". Remember to use the same sized pens/crayons/cubes/objects to measure with and link them so there are no gaps.


Mindfulness is a calming activity which can support children to focus, reduce anxiety and to regulate their emotions.Today's cosmic kids video is 'Yes you can!. Sometimes at school we hear some of you say "I can't do that" but we know that you can! And if you can't do something yet or find something really tricky, keep practising and you will definitely be able to eventually!


  • Can you draw a picture of things that you are proud of that you can do? We would love to see these so please send into your class email addresses!
