Good morning Brilliant Butterflies!

The little, white flower was a snowdrop.

I'm not sure you'll get this one!

This little yellow flower grows all over my lawn.

Can you find out what it is?

I hope that you've had a good week. Enjoy your weekend!




Listen and watch the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ on the British Council Website and afterwards talk about the story.


Can you try and give the ‘gist’ of the story by saying the main things that happened? Try saying what happened in a few sentences but you don't need to re-tell the whole story.


Now listen and watch another version of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' You will have to ask an adult to search for 'Jack and the Beanstalk Fairy Tale by Oxbridge' on YouTube.


Can you compare the stories?

What was similar about the stories?

What was different about the stories?

(Think about where the story took place, characters, problem and ending)


(If you want another activity there is a sheet on the British Council website where you can read words and match them to a picture or for more challenge, see if you can put the sentences form the story in order..)


Over the next few weeks we will be working on reading the tricky words: some, one, said, come, do, so, were, when, have, there, out, like, little, what

(If you want more challenge then you can begin to work on writing these words too)

Phase 4 tricky words song:

Ask an adult to help you search on YouTube for ‘Phase 4 Tricky Words Song Sight Words Song for said, have, like, come, some, what, when’

*Remember to take photographs of the tricky words and sing along too!

Now make a poster/word cards with these tricky words on and put it/them around the house to help you learn to read them. *


You could also use the PhonicsPlay website ‘Tricky Word Trucks’ game and select ‘phase 4’. You may be slow and steady at first but if you keep practicing you will soon be zooming! You can also practice your phase 3 tricky words too! (Please stick to Phase 3 tricky words if you are not yet confident reading them)



Complete a number pattern/sequence

Click on the link below and complete the number sequence counting in ones to 10.

If you want more challenge: Could you draw a number caterpillar (like in the game above) and choose numbers to put in (1-10) but leave some spaces blank for someone else to complete?


Key questions:

What is the pattern?

What comes next?/ How would the pattern carry on?

How do you know it’s a pattern?

Can you explain the pattern?


Today, you will be finishing the story of the Three Pigs using your story map that you created on Tuesday. I can't wait to read your stories!


Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation (use letter families poster)
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words? (You could use your phase 3 sound mat)
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing
  • Finger spaces needed between each word


If you want more challenge then, instead of using the sentences that the teacher suggests, you could stop the video and use your story map to write your own sentences. Also, instead of using the word bank, have a go at the words yourself!


More Challenge:

Use CL to start sentences and for names

Use a full stop at the end of sentences

Read through your writing and check it makes sense and punctuation is accurate

Extend sentences with connectives ‘and’, ‘because’, ‘so’

Use a range of vocabulary

It's Wellbeing Friday!

Every week I will put a link to a PSHE (circle time) activity on the BBC website. It is a Year 1 activity (unfortunately, they don't do Reception).
