Remote Learning - Week Beginning 1.6.20

Weekly Overview




What were your predictions from yesterday? What did you think the characters were saying? We're going to read some more of the story. Pause the video to answer some of the questions. When you have watched it all, there is a question below for you to chat to your grown up about.

Is it ok that George has said the house is not for these children? Why?

Here are some sentence starters to help you

Yes, it is ok because...

No, it is not ok because...

I think that.......because........


Watch the video from yesterday again. Who were all the people who weren't allowed in the house? 

Watch the next part of the story below and pause the video to answer questions.

When you have watched the whole story, tell your grown up whether you like the story or not and why.

Check back tomorrow for one more activity.


Using your picture of your home that you drew, can you write some labels. Then maybe you could write a sentence describing your house. Can you think of some adjectives?


My house has pretty, pink flowers in the garden.

The windows are shiny and square.






First have a go at our '1 less' warm up games and then look at the next video to learn about sharing, Check back tomorrow for another video.

Now watch the video about sharing. You could have some of your toys ready to share between and some objects to share.


Understanding of the World

We are learning about homes. What does home mean to you? Tell your grown up.

Have a look at the pictures of different types of homes.

What do yo notice about each one?

Is it similar or different to your home?

When you have talked about the pictures, there are some more questions you could try and answer below.

What does home mean? What is it like? What happens there? What does a home look like? What do you think is inside a home? Who is there? How does home make you feel? What is the best thing about your home? Are everybody's homes the same do you think?


Look closely at the outside of your home. Try drawing it and then colouring or painting it. How many windows can you see? What is the door like? What colours can you see?

Keep your picture for some writing later in the week.


Have a go at the Peace Out guided meditation on Youtube. This is a nice one if you are missing someone that you haven't seen for a while.



More information about the Sussex School Games challenges

You can have a go at practising lots of different sports skills with Active Sussex, in partnership with the Sussex School Games Organiser network and national governing bodies of sport.

They are launching a virtual competition as a response to the cancelled programme of school sport this spring and summer. Each week throughout the summer term, you can represent your school from the comfort and safety of your own home.

A new sport will be announced each Monday, made up of four challenges. You can spend the week training and improving, and log your best scores online before midday on Friday. This contributes to our school’s average score. Medals will be awarded to the best primary and secondary schools for each sport and an overall leaderboard will be kept throughout the summer.

It’s not only the children who can represent their school, as an Active Adults leaderboard will also be kept for teachers, parents and carers that would like to give it a go!

You can find out how to get involved by clicking here.

Helpful Resources



This website is more for printouts (mindfulness colouring, shape hunts, cutting activities etc.), and usually at a fee, but they are currently  offering a month of free access to parents. You will need to register for an account and use the code CVDTWINKLHELPS to gain your free access.

Perhaps you and your child could browse the website for activities to do together at home? There are simply hundreds of resources to choose from in the EYFS drop down menu! 


If you don't have a supply of books at your children's reading level, there are books online to use. Oxford University Press have 12 of each level on their website. This is a free service once you create a log in. Our colour levels are slightly different so if your child was reading red they should read pink, yellow should read red and then move on to yellow when they are ready. If your child was reading blue books, they should read yellow and then move on to blue if they are ready. Select level and then book band.

Please remember that lovely stories that you share together are still the most important thing to inspire a love of reading, build vocabulary, develop and understanding of sentence structure and most importantly bring joy at a difficult time!


We love playing Phonics Play games at school. The games and activities help us to use and apply our phonics knowledge.

Access to a tablet friendly site is currently free using the following login details:

Username: march20

Password: home .


Lots of free number and counting games. Most children will be able to work with numbers to 20 but for others numbers to 10 may suit them better. Simply pick whichever works best for your child.
