Week 1 23.03 - 27.03

Welcome to week 1 of your home learning journey. Please make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. On this page you will find phonics, maths and topic learning for the week. Please remember to post 1 picture a day on your child's class dojo portfolio page! 

Phonics / English work 

Please click on your child's group to access their individualised learning.


This week I would like you all to practice your numbers to 50. You need to count in 1s up to 50 and then try to go backwards to 0. Remember to use your number square to help!  Also, I want you to practice counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Scroll down to find some videos that you can sing along to and get moving to as well! 

I have also put on a problem solving task a day to help you recap on your addition and subtraction skills! 

Don't forget to do at least 10 minutes a day on Numbots as this will really help you with your quick fire number skills!

Have fun and I can't wait to see your work on dojo!

We are rapidly approaching Easter I thought it would be lovely to decorate some eggs! Don't forget to blow them first. Watch the video below to find out how!

Also, we have been learning lots about plants in school this term. Why not go for a plant hunt around the camp and take some photos. Can you identify the different parts of the plant? Can you find their leaves, stem, flower, petals? Why can't you see their roots?
