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

Maths task: Castle builders!

We will be continuing with our fairy tale theme today and creating our own models of a castle, thinking about the different shapes we have used.

Have a look at the shape power point below and have a go at naming the different shapes.

2. Now go on a shape hunt and gather some 2-D and 3-D shapes. If you have some 2-D and 3-D shapes at home, this is great, you can use them. If not, don’t worry, you can use objects from around your house such as kitchen rolls, plastic glasses, bowls, building blocks and so on.


3. Think about a castle’s features including windows, towers, and turrets. What shapes are you going to use to make your castle? As you as building can you name any familiar 2-D shapes, such as circle, square, rectangle and triangle. Take photographs of the shape castles to display on our amazing home learning page.


Complete the shape castle below, you have 3 different designs to choose from, cut out the different shapes and make a shape picture castle.

Reading task:

Watch the video below and answer the questions.

  1. Why did the beast want beauty at the castle?
  2. Where did the ring take beauty back too?
  3. How did the beast feel when beauty left the castle?
  4. How was the spell broken?
  5. What happened at the end of the story?

Beauty and the beast

Lastly once you have finished your workout, 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!

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: Practise your cutting skills and retelling the story of ‘The gingerbread man’ using the document below.
3. Music: Shake my sillies out! Check out the video below and learn this song!
