Good morning Acorns! 😊

Happy Monday! We are going into our second week of home learning now; I cannot wait to see what amazing things you achieve this week!

Please continue to send your work to us each day, so we can provide any feedback and see how hard you are working!


Our daily outline of what your day will look like today:





Choosing activities


Maths task:

Today we will be looking at the number zero.


  1. Watch the episode of number blocks.

Numberblocks Season 3 Episode 5 ZERO - Bing video


2. Practise counting the images below and representing different numbers using your fingers.

3. Now have a go at a throwing and rolling game such as skittles, beanbags, and buckets. You could use pot and pan and any soft object to practise throwing or how about using your teddies for skittles and trying to knock them down with a ball. Can you count how many you got in the bucket? How many did you knock down? Could you record your score on a sheet and see who the winner is?

Reading task:

Watch the video below and answer the questions. 

  1. How does the mouse feel as he sets off his journey through the woods?
  2. Do you think the mouse likes other animals? (Owl, fox, and snake)
  3. Do you think the Gruffalo is really afraid of the mouse?
  4. If you were the mouse what would you like to eat?

The Gruffalo

Topic task: Little pig, little pig!

Today we are going to look at building a house for the three little pigs! This can be done using a good range of building materials, including objects from your garden or daily walk such as twigs, sticks, or leaves. Wooden or plastic building bricks, old sheets and blankets or cardboard boxes and tubes. Think about how you might make your structure stay together when the big bad wolf comes along to blow it down! Which materials will be the strongest?

Your extra challenge is to make the pigs homes waterproof. You could test this once you have finished by pouring a little water over your house. What happens? Does your structure last in the rain or will the three little pigs be wet and cold? Good luck!

Choosing activities:

As part of our EYFS Curriculum the children would access a range of choosing activities and learn together and individually through play. I have set some options for you to choose from below. These do not all need to be completed and can be more independent for your child to complete and play maybe even alongside a sibling.


1. Role-play: Provide a mirror with the sign ‘mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?’ Explore your reflection in the mirror. What can you see? Could you draw a picture of yourself, thinking about though important features such as your eyes, nose, and hair colour.


2. Reading challenge area: Choose your favourite fairy tale character or using the pictures below. Print or draw your character and write their name below, make the first letter bigger to stand out. For example, Rapunzel. Stick the picture onto a basket or pot for you to collect items beginning with that letter. For example, R for Rapunzel.
