Phonics: In phonics this week, let’s look at the ‘oo’ sound.  It can be spelt in different ways.  These include oo, ew, ue, u-e, o. Here are some words with these spellings. Sort them into the different spellings ready to use later on in the week. (This could be a table with different columns.)


Broom     flute   do    blew    blue    fool     chew    clue     June    food        glue     drew    hoop    flew    rude     to  

Maths: Count forwards and backwards in 5’s starting from 0.

Our number of the week is 45.  What do you know about this number? Tell your grown up or create a mind map like we do in school.

For example:

It is a multiple of ?

5 x __ = 45

9  x __ = 45

You could include money, time (45 minutes in ¾ of an hour), drawings, Roman Numerals, base 10, numicon.

You can make it as creative as you like and display it on your wall!


Say your playground promise and enjoy your play time.  



Last week we were looking at the book ‘The Smeds and The Smoos’ by Julia Donaldson. You had a go at creating a new character! This week we are going to be looking at different settings. A ‘setting’ of a story is where the story takes place. For example, the Gruffalo takes palce in a ‘Deep Dark Wood’.

 Your job today is to find as many books as you can (these could be books by Julia Donaldson or other children’s authors) and have a look at the different settings. Have a think about what you would see, hear, smell and touch in these settings. Use as many interesting adjectives as you can to describe these settings. You can write these down or just have lots of discussions with your grown up in your house. Which setting is your favourite? Why?


Wash your hands and help your grown up to prepare your lunch.


As a school we usually take part in a local competition called ‘Chesterfield in Bloom’. Due to the current circumstances, the competition was cancelled. However, Chesterfield Borough Council is launching a new competition for residents called Chesterfield’s Still Blooming.
There are three categories for which participants can be awarded. The details can be found on our school website under ‘Home Learning’. It would be fantastic if you could take part in this and who might win an award!


To enter, please send a picture of your sunflower, stating your name and the category you want to enter to


Have a go at doing an observational drawing of a sunflower. If you do not have one there is an image attached you can use. Don’t forget to make it as detailed and as accurate as possible.
