Tuesday 24th March

Good Morning everyone!

I hope you are all well and are ready for learning!

Please continue to look at our phonics and maths activities from yesterday’s blog post – they will be useful all week.


Please access Education City and access your maths city. There are lots of activities on there, so please choose one or two.

In class we were revising some of the topics we had covered, including number bonds to 10, even and odd numbers, adding and subtracting. You’ll find a range of these topics on your city!


Today we would normally do our weekend new writing in class, however weekends may be looking a little different for a while. Some schools have had the great idea of writing a diary.

We are in a strange time where nothing like this has happened in recent years so lots of things are changing all around us. We thought it would be really interesting if once a week you could write a few sentences about what you’ve been doing and why.

For example you might want to think about

  • what it’s been like learning at home
  • have you been doing things that are new?
  • how you are feeling
  • have you learned anything new on the news?
  • anything that you have found interesting or that you have enjoyed

Each diary entry should start with the date at the top of the page. It will let us look back and see how things are changing and how you felt about everything!


While we are learning from home, we will not be using our regular scheme books for reading. I would encourage you to use any books that you have at home with your grown up. Some of them might be quite tricky, but follow each word with your finger and look out for any of our common words and words with our sound. Remember, our sound this week is oa.

While the schools are closed Audible have announced that hundreds of kids audio-books can be accessed for free on their website. This is a great way to access stories and listen out for any new words that you can find out the meaning of, and identify the sounds we have learned.

I would encourage everyone to have a look at the free books and have a listen to anything that takes your fancy. You don’t need to sign up to anything, just follow the link below.



It can be hard to keep active while you’re staying at home. If it is possible, try to have a little time outside the house, maybe on a short walk.

If you’re looking for ways to get active in the house, try this video, it’s one of my favourite GoNoodle videos!

Joe Wicks will also be hosting live 30 minute PE lessons Monday – Friday at 9AM on his YouTube channel – this will be a great way to keep yourself active!

I hope you all have a lovely day, and I hope to hear from some of you about how you’re getting on!

-Miss Allardyce
