Hedgehogs Home Learning – 28/4/20

Good Morning Hedgehogs!

I hope you had a good day yesterday – not quite as sunny but at least it didn’t rain. I hope you’re remembering to keep active with your daily walk or doing Joe Wicks. Is anybody doing any different types of exercise? You could share what you’re doing and it might give your friends some fun ideas on how to keep active.


I hope you all managed to access the phonics lessons yesterday. If you’re having any trouble with it, please let me know.

This link will take you to the phonics lessons. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw/featured

Reception, your lesson will be uploaded at 10am. Year 1s, your lesson will be uploaded at 10:30am. If you feel like you need a bit of extra practice there is another lesson at 11:00am that focuses on blending sounds.

Parents – there is a letter here that explains everything you need to know and the links that will take you to the online lessons. Please let me know if you have any trouble accessing them or have any questions regarding the content.

Letter to parents and carers about online phonics lessons


Reception: Practise writing 2 of the zig zag letters. Can you think of any words that start with these letters?


Year 1:  Please practice writing the following words: there, where, love, come, some, one. Try doing ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ – look at the word, say it out loud, cover it up, have a go at writing it and then check if it is correct. You could get an adult or an older brother/sister to test you! Remember to try and join your letters if you can.


Today’s home learning focus will be to write sentences using capital letters and full stops.

This lesson includes:

  • an introduction to capital letters and full stops
  • a song about caterpillars 
  • three activities to try at home




These links should take you to the correct page for each year group. We’re on to Summer Term – Week 2 (w/c 27 April)

Reception: Day 2 – Night Pirates https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/

Have fun with your floating and sinking activity! If you want to listen to either of the books you can find videos of both of them being read on YouTube.

Year 1: Lesson 2 – Find a quarter (1) https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

You (or an adult) can check your answers after you’ve completed the activity

Extra Activity:

Have a listen to an audio book on audible. https://stories.audible.com/discovery?ref=adbl_ent_anon_pdp_ds_vn

You can listen to the audio books for free while we’re off school. Some of them are quite long so you might want to listen to it over a couple of days. After you’ve had a listen, you could have a go at creating your own audio book – choose your favourite story and get an adult to help you record it!

Remember you can complete activities from the activity menu anytime you like.

Keep safe.
