Home Learning Tasks for The Wonderful Wolves


Good morning everyone. I hope that you are doing well. We are all missing having you at school and can’t wait until you are able to come back. Please keep sending pictures of your fabulous work to our class email address as we love to see what you are getting up to. Below is the home learning for today. Remember the home learning can be done in any order that you like to fit around your home schedule.


Phonics / GPS

For phonics yesterday, we began looking at the /ar/ sound.

Can you read these different /ar/ words? Once you have read the /ar/ words can you choose your favourites and write them into some silly sentences in your blue book?

Collective Worship

Our collective worship value for today is ASPIRE.

This week we are thinking about the story of Noah’s Ark, today we are going to watch the story again using the link from Monday. Then your task is to think about something you aspire to do or get finished, just like Noah aspired to finish building his ark and get the animals onboard before the rain came. Is your idea something that you can do at home now or something that you can do when we are back at school? Share your ideas with a grown-up, draw them or write them down.



Yesterday we read the story of “Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers.” The grandmothers are both very different from each other. Today I would like to practise our use of question marks. Can you draw two speech bubbles in your blue book? In one can you write a question that Katie Morag might ask Grannie Island and in the other speech bubble write a question she might ask Granma Mainland.  Remember when we use speech bubbles we write only what is being said.

Create a rainbow to put in your window. This helps to remember people to keep smiling at this difficult time.



The video for today can be found at https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/  located in week 2 under “Lesson 4 - Add equal groups”. Enjoy watching the video, if at any point you do not understand feel free to watch the video again or pause it to ask your grown-ups for help. Then use your blue book to record the answers to the questions in the activity section.



Create a treasure hunt in your back garden or around your house. Draw a map for someone else to follow and even place a piece of treasure at the end.

D&T (Design and Technology)

Last week you started to create your lighthouse. This week for D&T can you carry on with this. If you have already finished the lighthouse itself could you find a way to create the rocks and the sea that the lighthouse would stand beside? Keep us up to date with your project by sending us emails to the class email.



Last week we looked at the song “I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside.” It was a very jolly and upbeat song. This week to continue with this theme I would like you to try and create your own music. Think about the different sounds you hear when at the seaside: Seagulls, the waves, people running on the sand etc. Can you think of different things in your house that you could use to recreate these sounds and then use them to create your own little musical piece?



Today’s story is called A Tale of Two Beasts. Curl up somewhere quiet and enjoying listening to the story and looking at the lovely picture. Click on the picture to go to the story.
