Hello girls and boys.

I hope you are all well and not missing school too much!  I know that I'm missing seeing all of you and I think of you every day.

This week we are continuing to learn about minibeasts.  At this time of the year there are lots and lots of them about in our gardens and under flowerpots.  


Literacy and Language Development

  • Continue singing songs from the May songsheet.
  • Name and identify minibeasts.
  • Read stories about minibeasts.
  • Read Jack and the Beanstalk



  • Continue counting, sorting, ordering objects up to 10 and extend to 12/15.  
  • Rote count with your child up to 20.  Clap out each number or tap your knees.  They are familiar with this.  
  • Talk about the mathematical parts of Jack and the Beanstalk - height (when the beanstalk starts to grow - small, bigger, tall, etc), weight (light, lighter, heavy), size (big, small), etc
  • Complete the counting worksheets added to this weeks folder.
