Week 6 8.2.21


Monday 8th February


Good Morning, boys and girls! I hope you have enjoyed a restful weekend with your families. 

As Valentine's Day is next Sunday, I thought it would be nice to end this half term with Valentine's activities. 

This week, we will learn about how this special day is celebrated. We will think about people who are special to us in our families and will find ways to show them how much we love and appreciate them. 


I would like you begin by looking at the Powerpoint with your grown ups. 

* Can you draw a picture, to show the symbols of Valentine's Day? 

*Can you talk about how Valentine's Day is celebrated?

Who Invented Valentine's Day? 


As a challenge, watch this Newsround clip to find out about the history of this special day. Can you remember any important facts? You may like to record a video to tell me what you have learnt. 

Our 'Wake-Up, Shake-Up' for this week!

Phonics Valentine's Game




Search for your Heart( A Phonics Family game)

Here are the instructions for your grown ups... 


What you will need:

Cut some small paper hearts and onto each one write a word with a white crayon or candle. You will also need a sentence with a couple of words missing, that are on the paper hearts. Have the words 'I' and 'you' missing from the sentence, 'I love you'.

How to play:

Search 1 - Hide the paper hearts around the house, for your child to hunt for and find.

Search 2 - Using a pink or red felt tip pen, your child colours in the hearts in order to reveal the hidden words drawn in wax.

Search 3 - Your child now reads all the words on the paper hearts and searches for the correct ones to complete the sentence. You could have more than one sentence, to complete as an extra challenge, or leave this part out depending on how you think your child would get on.

Have fun!

Good Morning, Everyone!

Today I would like you to think about someone that you love. It can be a member of your family, or a friend. Can you draw a picture of your special person? Underneath, write 'I love....' and the name of your person. 

Next, I would like you to write about why you love your special person. You may need help to write some words, but try to sound out to help you to spell.

Good Morning, Everyone!

On Valentine's Day, we think about how we can show someone that we care about and appreciate them.

*Making a card for a family member.  

*Helping a grown up with a household chore. 

*Playing with your younger brother or sister.

*Tidying your toys in your bedroom. 

*Making sure your bed is made.  

Please take a photograph and send it to me, on Tapestry.


As it is such a snowy day, I would also love to see photographs of you having lots of fun outside!

Friday 12th February 


Happy Friday, everyone! Today will be our last day of Home Learning, before we break up for Half Term.




To finish our Valentine's week, I would like you to have a go at a painting activity inspired by the artist Wassily Kandinsky.

You will need: 

A paint palette, water and brush 

A Kandinsky template printed on paper-or you can ask your grown up to draw a version for you. 


Use the Powerpoint below, to talk about Kandinsky. Look closely at his painting, Concentric Circles. What do you notice about the colours used in the painting? 

Then, have a go at making your own Valentine's version, using your paint and the template. I would love to see your finished masterpieces!  



Kandinsky Hearts




At school, we have been talking about how we are all unique and precious. What does the word 'precious' mean? Can you ask your grown ups? Then, I would like you to share the story of 'The Precious Pearl' together. Follow the link below.
