29th January

Yeye, we made it to Friday Acorns! 😊

This means we have completed our fourth week of home learning! You have all tried so hard with your learning even if you have found it a bit tricky to motivate yourselves. You should be immensely proud of what you have achieved so far this term!

Have a well-deserved weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Monday for our registration.

Please continue to send your work to us each day, so we can provide any feedback and see how hard you are working! Its lovely to see all your hard work on our amazing home learning page.  


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





Choosing activities

Maths task:

We will be continuing with focusing on the numbers 6,7 and 8 today. Below is a range of activities you can choose from for your maths task today. Please complete at least two but you are welcome to complete all three if you wish.


1. You may want to get outside and go on a mini-beast hunt!

Use a magnifying glass or small plastic pot to observe the creatures carefully. How many legs can you see?

(This time of year, may be difficult to find any real minibeasts in our garden, so just in case you don’t, choose a selection from the document below, and pop them around the garden for them to find and count the different legs.)

Use your min beast hunt sheet to tick off what ones you find! Good luck!

2. Kippers toybox!

Gather a selection of 8 toys and pop them into a basket or pile on the floor. Take turns to ‘hide’ one of the toys. Can you spot which toy is missing? How many toys are there now? What if an extra toy arrives? How many will there be now?


3. Sorting activity                                                                                                                                                     Have a think about where we see 6, 7, and 8 in everyday life and make collections of 6, 7 and 8 objects from around your home. Sort these items into 6, 7 and 8. How else could you show and sort them into 6, 7, and 8? Which one has the most? Least?

Reading task:

Take a look at the picture below and answer the questions:

  1. What characters can you see in the picture?
  2. What has the old man made?
  3. What do you think will happen next in the story?
  4. Draw your own puppet you would like to create.

Topic task: Fairy tale twists!

Today we are going to look at a story called Princess SmartyPants. After you have watched the video, discuss what happened in the story. Was it the same as a ‘traditional’ fairy tale?

Then have a look at the video below to see my alternative ending to a ‘traditional’ fairy tale. Have a go at drawing your own alternative ending to your favourite fairy tale.

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. Art task: Create your own dragon. This could be drawn out and coloured using different materials or you could make a 3D dragon using an egg box or something similar from around your home, then painted and decorate using your own choice of materials.
