Week 11

The Growing Story by Ruth Krauss and Helen Oxenbury

As we grow our bodies change and we learn how to do new things. I wonder if your adult could find a picture of you when you were a baby 👶🏻  for you to look at.
* You could talk to your adult about the things you could do as a baby.

* Are there things you can do now that you could not do when you were much younger?

* Maybe you could draw a picture of yourself as a baby and a picture of how you look now.

* You could have a go at writing a sentence about something you could do when you were a baby and something you can do now

This week we are learning all about how our bodies change as we grow older. If you have a look at the last weekly challenge ( you can see pictures of all the teachers when they were much younger. Can you guess who is who? When you’ve had a guess look at the answers to see if you got it right!

These pictures are of us, your teachers, can you find Mrs Coles, Mrs Hayward, Mrs Sykes, Mrs Pendleton, Miss Thring and Mrs Riley?

Who is this?

Can you guess which of your friends is this baby?


Have a look at the PowerPoint below which is all about how we change as we grow up. If you click on the picture it will take you to the PowerPoint. 





You can watch daily phonics lessons on YouTube at 10am everyday. Search Letters and Sounds for home and school or click on image below for the link.

Look on our Phonics page for the phonics worksheets we do at school and more ideas 


This weeks White Rose Maths is based on the story of The Snail and The Whale by Julia Donaldson. Mrs Hayward read this story for you, find it in the Story Time folder, if you haven’t got it at home.

Purple Mash 

You have been set a 2do on Purple Mash this week. Can you have a go at drawing a picture of yourself and labelling different parts of your body? 💻

Creative Ideas 


You could ask your adult to help you paint or draw round your hands and feet on some paper. If your adult did the same, you could then compare the size of your hands and feet with theirs. How much bigger are their hands and feet? Could you measure the size of the hand and foot prints using buttons or pasta shapes?


Body shadows

You could compare your shadow to the people in your family. Are your shadows the same size? If you have chalk you could draw around your shadows. 

Home Learning Packs

Rather than printing off the packs and leaving them in the outdoor classroom, we will upload weekly home learning packs here. If you don’t have access to a computer/printer please email us.
