Weekly Home Learning Materials

Here are this weeks learning activities. Do not forget to check tapestry as we will be posting videos on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for you to watch. We would love to hear about the learning you are doing at home so please upload any photos or comments of what you have achieved on to tapestry. There is no pressure to complete all learning activities every week, please engage in as much as you are able to. 


Literacy activities

  • Have a look at the pirate pictures below. Choose your favourite pirate and see if you can spot something they have or something they are wearing. 
  • Can you write a sentence about the pirate? See if you can write the sentence 'he has got....../she has got...'.
  • Challenge: Can you add some descriptive vocabulary to your writing? e.g She has got a sharp sword. He has got long black hair.
  • Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning of your sentence, finger spaces and a full stop. 



Maths activities:

   Tens Frames:

  •  Please see the photos below of different ways you could create a tens frame at home. You can create any of these or simply draw a tens frame onto paper for your child to use.
  • You will also need some objects for your tens frame. You can use anything e.g. pasta, coins, lego, buttons, pom poms, balled up pieces of paper etc. 
  • Collect some number cards to 10. Turn them all over or put them into a bag. Select a card, read the number and see if you can create it in your tens frame. I wonder how you will arrange your number in the tens frame each time? Make sure you count out the objects slowly and carefully each time.   
  • Challenge: Put number cards to 5 in a bag or turn them all face down. Choose a number card and create that amount in your tens frame. Now choose another number card and use a different object to add this into your tens frame. Can you work out how many you have altogether? Can you record this as an addition number sentence? How many addition calculations can you complete using your tens frame?

Expressive arts and design:

  • Here are some expressive arts and design activities that are all related to pirates!
  • You can choose as many of the activities as you like to complete. 
  1. . Can you create your own treasure map? Will your map have an island/pirate ship/treasure/volcano/mountain on it? See if you can scrunch up your map and stain it with tea to make it look very old.
  2. Can you design your own pirate flag? What colours will you use? What sort of design will your flag have on it?
  3. Have a look at any junk modelling materials you have at home and see if you can create your own pirate telescope. You could use any old tubes you have. You could use pens, paint or even collage to decorate your telescope.
