​The end of yet another week!

We can't believe that another week has passed us by and there is only one more week before the Summer holidays.  Where has the last few months gone! 

We can begin to feel a little bit more hopeful knowing that some normality is returning although we still need to remain safe and alert to the fact that the virus hasn't disappeared.

We hope that you all have a lovely weekend enjoying the brighter weather that is predicted and we will be back on Monday.


Having listened to the story of 'Little Red Riding Hood', sequenced pictures to retell it, as well as some of you writing your own text we thought that today we would try something different.

We would like you to put yourself in the Wolf's position and think about the following questions.

*How do you think you(the wolf) would have felt after you had done what you did?

*What do you(the wolf) think you could have done different?

*Why are you(the wolf) sorry for what you did?

Once you have thought about this you might like to write a letter to Little Red Riding Hood's Granny to say how sorry you are. Below is a template of a letter which you may like to use.

When you are writing your letter we would like you to:

*Think about your capital letters

*Your finger spaces

*Your full stops

*Your tricky words

You may also like to look back on Wednesday's work (sorting character descriptions) and use this to help you.

Try and solve these tricky subtraction questions.

Use counters or count back on a numberline to help you.

The .pdf below has even more questions in it.

​Good Morning to you all!

After yet another wet day yesterday unfortunately, we think we are ready for some warmer weather again!  

We have managed to speak to lots of you already this week either in school or by telephone but if we haven't we will be catching you in the playground or giving you a call.


We hope you enjoyed listening to 'Little Red Riding Hood' yesterday and can now identify who the wicked and kind characters are in the story. 

Today we have a selection of pictures for you which are all mixed up. We have several sets, 1 star being the easiest and 3 stars being the more difficult.  Therefore you can pick which set is more appropriate to you.  (You may even try more than one set if you like)

*First we would like you to read with your grown up the text that goes with the pictures.

*We would then like you to cut the pictures and text out.

*Next we would like you to sequence them in the correct order.

There is the link below for the pdf of pictures.


You may then like to practise retelling the story in your own words using puppets.

If you want to use your own creative ideas to make them that will be great but we have also added some puppets below that you may like to use.

Here are some of the repeated refrains to help you.

'Granny what big eyes you have.'

'All the better to see you with.'

'Granny what big ears you have.'

'All the better to hear you with.'

'Granny what a big nose you have.'

'All the better to eat you with.'

​Welcome to Wednesday!

The last couple of days have been very wet so today we are hoping for a drier day so that we can spend more time outdoors enjoying the fresh air.  The Year 3s and 4s are settling in to their new routine and school has lots of bubbles of children, in different classrooms all keeping socially distanced.  This feels a little strange as the movement of children is done at different times but it seems to be working very well.


This week we thought that we would focus on the story 'Little Red Riding Hood.'

You might like to listen to the story first and join in with any phrases which you have heard before.

'Granny what big eyes you have.'

'All the better to see you with.'

'Granny what big ears you have.'

'All the better to hear you with.'

'Granny what a big nose you have.'

'All the better to eat you with.'

If you click on the 'Activities' bar at the left hand side of this page you can find this story under the English section.

Once you have read the story in the 'Activities' section you may like to answer the questions about what you can learn from the story.

We have also added below a Little Red Riding Hood sorting activity.  You have to read the words and discuss with a grown up what they mean if you are not sure. You then have to cut them out and match and stick the descriptions next to the right character.

We have also included an animation of the story if you click on the link below.

​Morning to Tricky Tuesday!

This morning we thought you could start your day by choosing an e-book to read from the tab on the left hand side of this page. You could spot and write down the tricky words that you see ready to use later in the English activity.



Today we thought that play dough could play a part in today's tricky word activity.

When children are using playdough they are building strength in the muscles in their fingers and their hands. These muscles are used when they are cutting things and when they are holding a pencil so this activity is great for developing fine motor control.

Here is a recipe for making your own play dough


*2 cups of plain flour

*1 cup of salt

*1 tbs of oil

*1 cup of cold water

*2 drops of liquid food colouring


1. Combine plain flour and salt

2. Add water, food colouring and oil.

3. Mix ingredients together.

4. Knead well

5. If too wet add more flour

Once you have made your play dough:

* You can roll it out and squish it flat onto a tray.

* You can then use tooth picks, chopsticks or twigs to poke into it.

* You can practise writing your letters or tricky words.  (The play dough texture gives a resistance as you pull down to make the strokes.)



You will need some 10 dried beans or counters for this game.

Paint the beans/counters so that one side is red and the other side is gold (or any 2 different colours). These are ʻmagic beansʼ.

Shake them in their hands and then drop them on to the table.

How many are gold and how many are red?

Write an addition on a piece of card to match the number sentence they have made, e.g. 8 + 2 = 10 .

Repeat and continue, until you think you have made all the ways of making 10.

Put all the additions cards in order so that you can see if any are missing.

​Good Morning to Monday!

Unfortunately the weather this weekend hasn't been as dry as we would have liked but it looks like it didn't spoil your Nield's Fest!  Thank you to all those who celebrated with events and parties at home and also for sharing your blogs with us!  Your fancy dress, face painting and ideas were great and we are really proud of you for taking part.  

Welcome back to a new week of learning and we will have a new story for you on Wednesday.


Today we would like you to find a selection of small world objects. You may choose dolls, puppets, teddy bears or animals.  

We would like you to give instructions in a turn taking game asking the children to put the objects in different places.  (You will need to model this first)

The prepositional language that may be used is as follows:




*On top

*Next to










Remember to make this game active and enjoyable, use lots of actions and gesture to reinforce your instructions.  

When your child is more confident then they may instruct you.


*You may like to hide an object somewhere in your house.

*You could then write some instructions describing where the object is.
