Hedgehogs Home Learning 29/4/20

Good Morning Hedgehogs!

We’re halfway through the week already – time seems to be flying by! Hopefully the sunshine will come back soon so we can all get back into our gardens. I’m really enjoying all the work you’ve been sending in for Mrs Johnson and I to see – keep it up 🙂


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: once, ask, friend, school, put, push. 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 create a mini beast fact file using nouns and joining words.

This lesson includes:

  • a video about nouns and an introduction to joining words

  • a video about about minibeasts

  • 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 3 – Night Pirates https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/

I hope you all manage to find the treasure in your treasure hunt! 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 3 – Find a quarter (2) https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

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

Extra Activity:

On Wednesday you would normally go to Forest School, so I thought it would be nice to have an activity that you can do outside (hopefully it’s not raining!). Have a look round your garden or on your walk and see if you can use all your senses to find something that matches the descriptions or see if you can find things that match up to the colours. If the weather isn’t very nice you could always try and find things that are inside your house!

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

I’ve really enjoyed seeing pictures and videos of you working at home, keep sending them in it really brightens my day!

Keep safe.
