Please watch the YouTube video of the story Handa's Surprise. (see link below)


I would like you to have a go at making or drawing an African hut for Handa or Akeyo. When watching the YouTube link above, try to look out for features of their houses. How they are different to ours? Do they look the same? Do the houses in the story have doors and windows like our houses do?


When you have made or drawn your African hut, I would like you to have a go at writing a sentence to describe what your African hut is like. For example, The hut has a straw roof. / The hut is brown. / The hut has no windows.


Remember to use your phonics to help you spell and write your sentences, as well as finger spaces between words, capital letters at the beginning and for their names, and a full stop at the end of each sentence.




Please watch the RWI video clips below about how to read Green Word Time 1.4 words and how to spell them for

writing. We have placed an exercise book in your home learning packs, which will help you to write the words in so you can see your progress and hard work.

Today we are going to be learning about the mathematical concept of ordering numbers to 10.


I would like you to draw / make a number card for each number up to 10. Then I would like you to play a variety of games (suggested below) to help you remember and learn the order of the numbers up to 10.


Once you have mastered this and you can confidently order numbers to 10, you can move on to numbers up to 15 or even 20!


Suggested games are:

  1. Hide the numbers around your home, see who can find them in the quickest time and put them in the correct order
  2. Put them in a feely bag/hide in a bag, pull them out one at a time and place them in the correct order
  3. Bury / hide them in sand, rice, foam etc, pull out one number at a time and place them in the correct order
  4. Go on a number walk around your local area, you can take the number cards with you, and see how many numbers you can find. When you find a number put it in your pocket. See if you can spot all of the numbers on your cards.
