Week beginning: 15/06/20

Theme: People who help us: Vets

Watch the video of Mrs Roberts reading a story

Another story- Paula the Vet:





Time – Begin to understand o’clock (analogue)


When we teach time, we talk about it as part of our routine. We start by looking at a clock and then progress to reading time. I’ve recorded a video of myself talking about time – have a look a this on the link.


I’ve tried using a clickable board this week so that you can watch a video and click on different links. Click on the pictures to take you to the links.


Create your own routine diary for yourself, a pet or even a cuddly toy animal. You could either take a photo diary and add the time in or you could draw a photo diary and add the times in. Only do this to o’clock or if you really want a challenge then try half past.



Sentence Writing




How to write a sentence using the ‘hold a sentence’ approach that we use in Read Write Inc.


You could set up your own vets’ surgery with some soft toys, bandages and paper to write down appointments and treatments.


Have a little go and writing your own sentence and you could even get a notepad and make some appointments for the pets at  your very own vets surgery.




Listen to the story that I am reading:


Answer some of the questions:


  • Did you enjoy the story? Why?
  • What was your favourite part of the story?
  • Were they any parts you didn’t like?
  • How do you think the family felt when the Spider was in their house? Think of another word than scared!
  • Can you watch the story again without sound and retell it in your own words?








Fun Friday: Race like an animal!


As we are learning about time: Use a stopwatch or the timer on a phone to time yourself racing like these animals.


Can you use your body to pretend to be these different animals: Think about your arms, legs, belly, head and speed?


  • Dog
  • Mouse
  • Ferret
  • Tortoise
  • Rabbit
  • Bird  
  • Snake


Some of your children may have heard some of the news or you may want to discuss the topic of Race and Diversity. I have put some links to things that may be helpful for you to discuss this with your children.


We are all different book – Free download:


Books to purchase:


The Smeds and the smoos story:  The Smeds (who are red) never mix with the Smoos (who are blue). So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love, their families strongly disapprove. But peace is restored and love conquers all in this happiest of love stories. There's even a gorgeous purple baby to celebrate!
