Week 1

We hope you all had a lovely half term break and enjoyed lots of family time out in the glorious sunshine.  We all miss you very much and love looking at all of the lovely photos and work that you have been sending to our Early Years email.  If you havent sent any photos yet we would all love to see what you have been up to.



Revise and revisit all set one and two sounds.  Use the sounds to make up some simple words (c-a-t,  s-i-t, r-ai-n, d-ay, b-oo-k)


Write about something that you have done in the half term.  Try to sound out the words yourself using your Fred fingers.  Don't forget to use a capital letter at the start of your sentence, finger spaces after each word and a full stop at the end of your sentence.  You might be able to try and write more than one sentence.

Listen to the tricky word songs to help you read them by sight.        Phase 2         Phase 3      Phase 4



This week our maths will be based on 'The Snail and the Whale' by Julia Donaldson

Expressive Arts and Design - Henri Matisse - The Snail (L'Escargot)

The Snail created in 1953
A child's own interpretation of the artwork
Henri Matisse was a French artist who was born in 1869 and he died in 1954.  He created 'The Snail' in 1953.  He used coloured paper to create the spiral pattern of a snails shell.  Can you create your own interpretation of the Snail using paper, pens, fabric or anything else you can think of to use?  Don't forget to send us the pictures of your fantastic art work.

Understanding of the World


You might like to see if you can find any snails in your garden or when you are out walking.  You might like to see what their shell feels like or you might want them to slither across your hand.  You could look closely and draw one.  You might want to make it a nice home!
