Happy Tuesday Acorns! 😊

It was lovely to see how much effort you are putting into your home learning and I have given lots of house points out for such amazing work! I wonder who the winning team will be at the end of the week? Lets see how many house points we can get today.

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:

We will be continuing to look at comparing mass. Yesterday we ordered some objects at home using your hands to decide if something was the heaviest or lightest. Today we are going to look at using scales to help us order some objects. Remember to use your language such as heavy, heavier than, heaviest, light, lighter than, lightest to compare items. 

1. Watch number jacks – getting heavy video. Discuss will bigger numbers always be heavier? Why? Can you show me using some cubes or building blocks?

2. Collect a set of balance scales or digital scales. Make 4 different sizes of play dough balls. Can you compare the weight of the different size balls of play dough? Which do you think is the heaviest? Which will be the lightest?   


3. Then using the scales can you find other objects around the house. Between you compare two objects, can you say each time which will be the heaviest or lightest? Then put them onto your scales and see if you are correct.


4. Now record all of your heavy objects and light objects on the sheet below.

PE task:  

For your warm up today, we are going to play Simon says. Follow the instructions that are called out, for example, ‘Simon says put your hands on your head’, but if the instructions are called out without Simon says, for example ‘turn around and touch the ground’ then you must stay still. Lets see how well your listening skills are!

Once you have warmed up for 5 minutes, you heart beat should be racing and your body should be warm. Your next task is to complete some yoga.

Lastly once you have finished your yoga, don’t forget to cool down, lay quietly on the floor and stretch your legs, arms, and body. Let your heartbeat come back down to normal and grab yourself a nice drink and treat for your hard work in PE! Well done!

If you're not too tired out, why not try one of Mrs D's challenges for PE. 

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. Continue with your Art challenge task: For the next 30 days, you could complete the art challenge below. Please do not worry if your picture is not exactly 5cm x 5cm as long as it’s a small piece of paper so that at the end your drawings can all be put together to create your very own 30-day art collage. I cannot wait all those amazing drawings! 


2. Creative task: Have a go at practising your cutting skills and ordering the fairy tale pictures of ‘The three billy goat gruff’. See the story map below or draw our your own.  


3. Wellbeing task: Check out our wellbeing page and have a go at an activity or some mindfulness colouring.
