18th January

Good morning Acorns! 😊

I hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend? The last two weeks have been full of fun home learning, lets hope this week is just as good and filled with your amazing photos sent in.

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:

This week we will be looking at comparing mass. We will be focusing on using language such as heavy, heavier than, heaviest, light, lighter than, lightest to compare items.  By the end of the week we want the children to understand that not always the biggest item is the heaviest.


1. Watch the story ‘who sank the boat’ Discuss who you think sank the boat and why.


2. Watch the video below, where Mrs Trusler explores different objects that are heavy and light. Can you help her order them? 

Maths - Light and heavy

3. Find an item such as a piece of fruit, for example, an apple. Challenge them to find things which feel heavier and lighter than the apple and sort them into two sets. Are all the heavier things larger than the apple? Can they find anything which is larger than the apple but lighter? Take a photo of your sorting activity.

Reading task:

Today we will be looking at a reading comprehension. You can print the sheet below and complete the questions by reading the short sentence and adding to each picture.

Topic task: Baddies beware!

Can you think of some ‘baddies’ from the fairy tales they we have read this term so far? Can you remember what the baddies did and how they caused problems for others? How about the big bad wolf or the fox from the gingerbread bread?

Now think about a time when something went wrong because of your actions or the actions of others. Ask ‘How did it make you feel?’ and ‘Were any other people upset?’ Discuss that doing good things can make them feel good inside and doing something bad can make them feel bad inside. Can you think of something good that they could do today or something good at school?  

Have a look at the PowerPoint below to see if you could add any of these good deeds to your beanstalk.


Think about your good deed you could today or at school and write your idea onto a leaf. Can you think of any more to add to your ‘good deed’ beanstalk? How high can you make the beanstalk? You are welcome to use the leaf template below or create your own leaves and cut them out.

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. Writing task: Create your very own wanted poster. You could use a cold, wet teabag to mark and stain the paper to create a brown effect. Then draw your wanted fairy tale character, this could be the big bad wolf, the troll or maybe a evil stepmother. Have a look at the examples below.  


2. Art area: Choose and print your favourite fairy tale picture. Then decorate and colour your character or scene using a range of materials such as coloured pens, sequences, glitter, and pom poms.
