Please continue to send your work to us each day, so we can provide any feedback and see how hard you are working! Its always lovely to receive your learning and see how well you are all doing.

Maths task: This week out focus for Maths will be focusing on time.

Overall, we want to achieve ordering and sequencing important times in their day and use language such as now, before, later, soon, after, then and next to describe when events happen. They begin to recognise that regular events happen on the same day each week and use the vocabulary ‘yesterday’, ‘today’ and ‘tomorrow’ to describe when events happen.

They are able to describe significant events in their lives and talk about events they are looking forward to. They learn through their own experience and the stories they read that some processes such as growing vegetables, take a longer time.


1. Today you will need to log into your tapestry account and look back at the different pictures in your learning journal. What have been their favourite times in Reception? What key events can they remember? 


2. Using a photograph of themselves when they were small, can they discuss how they have changed over time? Different hair colour? Have you got taller? Bigger feet? Place the two photos next to each other and write some labels of what has changed.


3. Watch the story called ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk. Using the picture cards below, order the days of the week and key events from ‘Jaspers beanstalk’ story.

Reading task:

Check out the document below and complete the comprehension sheet. You will need to sound out the sentence and add to the picture to check your understanding of what you have read.

Topic task: Minibeast finger puppets.

Today your task is to create a minibeast finger puppets. Which minibeast creature will you choose to make?

Don’t forget to use those paints, different colours, maybe add some patterns to decorate your minibeast. Then once you are finished slip your fingers into the puppet holes to create your minibeast puppet with finger legs!

You could then use your puppet to be creative through some imaginative play or find some cool bug-themed music so your puppet can have a dance!

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. Investigation task: Using the PowerPoint below, can you guess all of the minibeasts from the clues. ‘Who am I?’ How many will you get right?

2. Maths task: Choose your favourite minibeast from the document below and follow the colour by numbers to create a beautifully coloured minibeast.
