Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Wednesday 6th January

Hi Carle class, 


Welcome to your first day of home learning. We miss you already, so don't forget to send any work or photos to our class email for us to see!


Our class email:


Our topic for this term is 'Read Me A Story', and our first book is Jack and the Beanstalk. You will find a video version of Jack and the Beanstalk below - please watch it as often as you can to help your child become familiar with the story.

Jack and the Beanstalk



From Tuesday 5th January RWI will be posting daily videos on their YouTube channel for children to learn at home.


One lesson will show at 9.30am each day and be available for 24 hours. 


Reception will need to watch the Set 1 Speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. They should watch these every day.


Access the videos at this link:


Below is a video guide, which demonstrates how to say each sound:

Parent video: How to say the sounds



Today we would like you to think about the characters from the Jack and the beanstalk. The link to watch the story is above. Can you name the characters from the story? 


We are going to make a character profile. Can you think of words to talk about your character? What does he/she look like? How do they act? Here is an activity to give you some words to help. What words would you match to each character? You can either print this off or talk about it.

Now pick one of the characters discussed and draw a picture of that character. Next write some words to describe your character underneath or around your picture.  Can you use your Fred fingers to think about each sound you need to write? Can you hear the sound your words start with? Are your letters formed correctly?


Remember parents your child will not spell all words correctly. It is ok for them to write the sounds that they hear. 



For your maths today we are going to be learning all about this number:



Do you know what number it is?

That's right - it's a zero!


Zero is a very important number because it means that there is nothing there. Let's join the Numberblocks - I think that zero wants to sing you a song!

The Zero Song

Let's have a think about what you've remembered. What is our number today, and what does it mean?


For your activity today I would like you to play a game of bowling. You could use bottles, cardboard tubes, dolls or anything else you want to make your pins (you could use three, five or even ten pins if you wanted a challenge!).  Throw/roll your balls to knock down each pin. Scrunch up some paper to knock down your pins if you don't have a ball. Remember to count how many pins that fall down! If you don't hit any of the pins, how many have you knocked over? (I'll give you a hint, it's the number that we looked at today)


Extra Challenge: If you go on a walk today, see if you can see any '0's. If you want to, you could take some pictures of any that you find and send them to our class email.


Have fun!



This week we are talking about the season of winter. Can you name any other seasons?

Read through this attached PowerPoint all about winter. Ask what happens at winter? What do you like about winter?


Today we are going to design some clothes to keep us warm. You could use the pictures as a guide, use the template provided or design and make your own.


Don’t forget to send pictures of your work to our class email so that we can see how you got on.
