Week 8



Here is the home learning activities for the week beginning Monday 19th October. These activities are in line with those we are completing in school, so your little Explorer can slot straight back into school activities upon their return. 



English Task

Reading Task

Maths Task

Day 1

We have been reading all about Supertato and Evil Pea! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlaMeNmTG6c&t=39s

Can you retell the story?

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, ‘It’s me 1, 2, 3! Week 2.’






Day 2

Today, you will be trying to create your own Supertato story! 

e.g. “Once upon a time, in a supermarket early in the morning Mr Evil Pea escaped from the freezer.”


Then what happened? What evil things did he do? Who came to the rescue?


Think of some ideas together, and try to act it out using vegetables in your kitchen!

Day 3

Today, you could have a go at retelling your own made up story.

Maybe you could create your own Supertato puppet show!

Day 4

Today, you are going to write a sentence about a part of your story!


Draw a part of your story. Then, with support, write labels or a short sentence to describe your picture.

e.g. Mr Pea put potato in a bin.  

You could use the Superhero paper below if you are able to.
