Hedgehog Class Home Learning 06.01.2021

Good Morning Hedgehogs!

I hope that you all had a good day yesterday. It was lovely to have the chance to chat to some of you on the phone! Here’s today’s learning. There was some lovely work put on Tapestry yesterday so I’m really looking forward to seeing what you’ve been up to today.


Purple Group – Your sound today is “ss” (Phase 2). Watch the video below and then play the game on Phonics Play.



Green Group – Your sound today is “oi” (Phase 3). Watch the video below and then click on the orange arrow below the video for your activity.


Yellow and Orange Group – Your sound today is the alternative pronunciation of “ou” (Phase 5). You already know it as in cloud and yesterday you learnt it as in soup but now you need to learn it as in should! (Isn’t the English language tricky!) Work your way through the words in the PowerPoint and see if you can read them.

To carry on the theme of transport and journeys, today I’d like you to find a picture of a place that you would like to visit. It can be anywhere in the world! Reception, you should then write a caption for your picture using your best sounding out. Year 1, you should write a few sentences about the destination that you have chosen. Please feel free to choose more than one picture if you want to practise a bit more!


Reception, have a go at this interactive activity and then see if you can answer some of the calculations in the second link. If you want to save printing, you could copy the calculations into your workbooks and write the answers straight in there.



Year 1, please go through the PowerPoint below. When you have done that, have a go at the worksheets. As yesterday, there are 3 different levels of challenge. Choose which one you think suits where you are currently working at – make sure that you are challenging yourself!




This afternoon would have been our PE lesson so it’s time to get active! Why don’t you have a go at this PE with Joe session…



In PSHE this term we would have been learning all about relationships. Today, ask your adult at home to spend a few minutes with you to talk about and answer the following questions:

  • How do we feel today?
  • How do we show/tell people how we are feeling?
  • How do others show their feelings?
  • How can we help if someone is feeling unhappy?

This is probably one of your most important tasks today. It’s really important that we all have an opportunity to talk about how we are feeling, particularly in these strange times! There is no physical work to do for this, please just spend some time talking.


Just a very quick reminder to keep practising your reading too! There are lots of free age appropriate eBooks that you can read at https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/

I can see that some of you have also been busy on reading eggs recently as well. Don’t forget to log in and make the most of this resource! Reception, you are all now set up on this and I have put the relevant information on Tapestry for you. If this is your first time on Reading Eggs, please log in and click on “My Lessons”. When the next screen loads, please complete the Placement Test. This will assess where you are currently working at and it will start you off on the right level for your current ability. It’s really important that the children don’t get any help reading with the placement test. If they do get help with it, the programme will start your child off on a level that will be too difficult for them. If you need any help with this or are unsure, please contact us at school or via Tapestry and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Have a lovely day all! That’s it from me this week but I’m really looking forward to catching up with you on Microsoft Teams next week. As always, if you have any questions or need to get in touch, please email me via the admin email address.
