Hedgehogs Home Learning – 6/5/20

Good Morning Hedgehogs!

I think it’s going to be a lovely sunny day today so make sure you get outside and enjoy some fresh air. You could always do some of your activities in the sunshine!


I hope you’re all managing to access the phonics lessons and that you’re enjoying them. 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. Once the lessons have been uploaded they remain online for you to view whenever you can.


Today’s home learning focus will be to correctly form long ladder letters and use them when writing short sentences.

This lesson includes:

  • an introduction to long ladder letters

  • 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 3 (w/c 4th May)

Reception: Day 3 – Hungry Caterpillars https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/

Year 1: Lesson 3 – Add together and find a part https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

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

Extra Activity:

DIY Forest School – have a go at making a bug hotel! Here’s a video and a step by step guide to making one https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/give-nature-a-home-in-your-garden/garden-activities/build-a-bug-hotel/

Bug hotels are a great way of recycling things you would normally throw away while also providing all kinds of creepy crawlies with somewhere to live! If you have a go at making one I’d love to see the end result and you’ll have to let me know if any bugs come to visit!

Remember Friday is VE Day and if you’d like to commemorate it in any way have a go at one of the activities on the activity menu.

Keep safe, keep smiling!
