Home learning project The incredible shrinking machine



In preparation for the Easter holidays, I thought I would post up my favourite activity ideas from the internet. So much has opened up since lockdown started and it can get quite overwhelming! Have fun with some of these over the holidays 🙂

Cosmic Kids is absolutely marvellous, the children have enjoyed doing these in school and follow along well.

If you need something more invigorating, if you haven’t tried Joe Wick’s PE lessons yet, they are all available on youtube!

There are loads of drawing tutorials online, we’ve tried this Minion one out at home and my 2 boys really enjoyed it.

Chester Zoo did a live tour last week, the videos are available to watch on youtube

Here’s a recipe for Easter egg nests, we’ll be having a go at making these at home over the holidays

We had originally planned to have an egg decorating competition at school. If you would still like to decorate one, we won’t have a competition but I would love to see them.

Google have launched a new feature (on phones mostly I think) to be able to view animals in 3d/augmented reality. It is totally cool! This tells you how.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and keeping yourselves entertained at home. Reception have had a very busy week learning at home. They have been sending me photos and keeping me updated. I am busy preparing learning videos for next week while keeping ourselves busy in the garden with this beautiful weather we’ve had.

Today, I thought I would make a list of TV shows that are great for our brains! We watch some of them in class because they link perfectly to what we are learning about. I’m sure there’s loads more but these are some of my favourites.

Tumbleleaf- full of imagination and scientific concepts

Messy goes to Okido- the best TV show when trying to explain anything scientific!

Numberblocks- a great visualisation of number, we use Numberblocks in class to start learning about a new number.

Team Umizoomi- is available on Amazon Prime and is a really fun maths problem solving TV show

Alphablocks- great for blending sounds to read words

Go Jetters- amazing programme for learning about geography. They choose one country’s landmark to focus on each episode

Bitz n Bob on Cbeebies- great show for STEM (science, engineering, technology and Maths

Andy’s dinosaur adventures/ Andy’s wild adventures- Amazingly informative.

Sesame St songs on youtube- famous singers have recorded tracks with Sesame St and some of them are rather wonderful. My personal favourite is Will-I-Am ‘What I am’.

Keep safe and I hope to see you all soon

Home Learning 2020

‘Calling all Superheroes’ home learning project


In phonics, we are learning and recapping phase 3 sounds

j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er

There are lots of games online if you search ‘phase 3 phonics games’. These are some of our favourite free ones

**phonics play free log in username – march20, password – home **

We have been practising writing sentences:

  1. Think of a sentence to write
  2. Count the words in the sentence
  3. Practise saying the sentence
  4. Use our phonics fingers to work out the sounds in the first word
  5. Write it down
  6. Read our sentence to check we remembered to add in all the words.


We have been learning about numbers to 10- 1 more/ 1 less, exploring number bonds (which numbers can you add together to make 10).

We love watching Numberblocks on BBC iplayer and youtube, they are great for looking at lots of different areas of number.

We have also been learning about 2d and 3d shapes and making patterns- AB (red, blue, red, blue), ABB (red, blue, blue, red, blue, blue) and AAB (red, red, blue, red, red, blue). We have been learning to continue a pattern, copy a pattern and make up our own. The next step will be to spot errors in someone else’s pattern!


We have been practising our multi skills in P.E- throwing, catching, kicking, rolling, bouncing balls and bean bags etc. We have been making up our own games with rules and scoring systems!
