Hi everyone!

I hope you enjoyed Active Week! Thanks to everyone for joining in and making a great effort! If you can take photos of something you liked doing this week, please email it to me at Please keep an eye on our class Twitter page @MsClynes1st for useful links and fun activities.

The theme for this week is ‘Space’. Please feel free to pick and choose based on what suits you. There is no pressure to do everything.

Intercultural Activities

In light of the Black Lives Matter protests in America and around the world, we would like to highlight some resources that might help First Class understand what is going on and why:

Ideas for work this week:


Phonics: New sound: /ur/ (like in turkey, purple, burger)

  • Jolly Phonics p68
  • Write some /ur/ words outside – use chalk, sticks, stones, sand!
  • Choose 3 words and put them into sentences
  • Geraldine the Giraffe video
  • Do your own sound hunt – look around your home / outside and find things with the sound!



  • Write 3 questions you have about Space! Hmm… What dessert do astronauts eat? Who was the first person to walk on the Moon? Which planet is the closest to the Sun? To find the answers, ask someone or find out in a book or on the internet!
  • Do an interview with someone in your family. Write down the questions first!



Where to find eBooks:



SESE: Space


  • If you have an old spray bottle, mix some paint with water and make a Galaxy painting (this is best done outside!) You could then add some planets with paint, chalk or collage.

  • Use empty toilet rolls and whatever you can find to make an alien!

As you know, just before the school closed, we were doing the Stay Safe programme. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to finish it. This week, please look at Topic 4: Secrets and Telling (click the link for more detailed lesson plans)

  • Remind your child about the importance of never keeping secrets about touch
  • Ask your child to name some good secrets (e.g. a birthday present)
  • Discuss what a bad secret might be and how it might make you feel. Think of some examples.
  • Worksheet: Read the examples and discuss whether they are good secrets, bad secrets or you’re not sure.
  • Discuss what to do about a bad secret (e.g. Tell an adult you can trust)
  • Go to the resources and click TR21 to hear Martin’s Secret. Discuss the story.
  • Explain Threats and Bribes
  • Ask your child to name 5 adults they could tell about a bad secret, and remind them of the importance of telling.
