Week 3


English Task

Reading Task

Maths Task

Day 1


The Jolly postman delivers his post to a variety of different homes. Show children the map of his route. Where does he begin his journey? Where does he go next, how does he get there? E.g. He cycles in between tall trees and along a winding path…

Use the story link and the map below to explore the route that he makes.


You could use this rhyme:

Oh Where Oh Where is the Postman?

Oh where, oh where is the postman?

Oh where, oh where can he be?

Is he up or down?

Or right, or left?

Oh where, oh where can he be?

Each day please could you read your school book or a book with an adult at home.


During the week, it is also important to continue learning phonics.


Go to the Phonics play website and play the free phonics games for phase 2.


Picnic on Pluto is a good game to practice real and nonsense words.


Pick a picture is perfect for practicing writing with phase 2 sounds.




We also sing the Jolly Phonics songs every day! 

In maths, you will be recapping learning that we have already begun at school.


Follow the link to find the home learning section on the White Rose website.

Please complete an activity each day for, ‘Light and Dark Week 1’.  





Day 2

Talk about the Jolly Postman and all the strange places he visits. Have a look at the postman powerpoint below and talk about odd places that real postal workers may travel to.

Then, draw your own strange place that the Jolly postman may deliver to.  What is your strange place? What would you have to travel through, up, over, under… to get there? Can you act out how to get there?

Day 3

Today, imagine you are a postman. Use the map below to draw two or three places that you may deliver to before heading to the sorting office. What strange places would you travel through? Use your idea from yesterday to help you get started. Maybe you could label the places too with support?

Day 4

Today, look back at your postal journey that you created yesterday. Then, using language like first, next and after that, recap the journey orally. Practice speaking key words like up, over, under, through and think about extra details. E.g. “I walked over fallen trees in a dark wood.”

All of this should be verbal. But, you could write some key words for your child to copy and practice.

Day 5

Today is writing day! Using the map created this week, draw your favourite place. Then, write a short phrase about how you got through that place. E.g.  up the steps, over mud, under a tree. If in need of a challenge write a full sentence:

“I walked __________________to get to _____________________.”
