Keep safe and enjoy these activities.

Mrs James

Week beginning: 06/07/20

Theme: Staycation!

A little message:

Some of you may have missed a holiday this year or wanted to go out and explore but couldn’t go anywhere due to the virus. So, we are having a ‘Staycation’ this week, we will be having a camp out in school and at home. If you have a tent – put it up and pretend to go camping as we explore the outdoors like a wilderness explorer! (But watch out, there may be some bears about!)


What are we doing when we are in School?

Numeracy and Literacy Starter activity

Outdoor Learning in Norfolk Lodge

Story time


Numeracy – Money – coin recognition

Children will be recalling coins they already know and learning those they do not. We will be practising a little adding with these coins.


Literacy – Read Write Inc sounds, exploring postcards and their features and lots of stories!


Camping Outdoors!


  • Building their own campfire with sticks and leaves from the outdoors to have hot chocolate around.
  • Learning some campfire songs and singing songs
  • Checking if there has been a bear on our campsite but following the scavenger hunt
  • Thinking about the adjectives in ‘bear hunt’ and trying to find objects that make the same sounds, etc.


2 stories this week!


We are going on a bear hunt




Meerkat Mail



What can you do at home?





WALT: recognise coins and give change


1. Monday: Revise the coins and play some coin games.  You could:

  • Play a splat game with coins
  • Do some coin rubbings and match the coin to the rubbing that you made.
  • Set up a list of jobs to do for the day where your child could earn a little bit of pocket money and then add up what they have at the end of the day. It could be jobs like: Help set the table etc

2. Wednesday – Pay for items to camp with!

Have a look at the shop list that we will put onto Seesaw, then decide what you would buy for your camping trip! You could even set up a pretend camping shop and pretend to pack your bag by buying some items.


3. Friday - Change

You have been busy learning about subtraction. Could you practise giving some change and taking away with the coins?

Watch Mrs Darbshire’s video to help you with this.

WALT: write a postcard


1. Monday: We will be looking at postcards and what makes a good postcard. Watch my video talking about the different features of a postcard.

We will then be reading a story called ‘Meerkat Mail’ where there are lots of postcards in the story and answering some questions.


2. Wednesday: We will be thinking about who you are going to write to. Mrs Darbyshire has recorded a video talking about the different people you could write to. Can you then record who they want to write to?


3. Friday: Hold a sentence or two! We will post a video of how to write a postcard and help your child with writing a postcard.





WALT: create our own staycation








Set up your own campsite at home!

1. Monday: Think about what you are going to set up at home.

Are you going to make a little den with sheets and pillow, or are you going to make a tent with a pretend campfire?

Then, think about:

  • What are you going to do on your camping staycation?

Have a look at my video for some ideas!

  • What are you going to eat?

Are you going to have hot chocolate and marshmallows?

2. Wednesday Today could also make some posters for your campsite to help people know what is there and why it is a good campsite!


3. Friday Create your own marshmallow on a campfire art work
