Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to the present moment (thoughts and feelings) as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing. The link below is to classical music aimed at children in order to support relaxation and mental focus. 


In Key Stage One phonics is taught in phonics groups rather than classes. The phonics groups each work at a different ability level, therefore there are different phonics videos for each group. Your child will know who their phonics teacher is, but if you need clarification please message your child's class teacher on class dojo for confirmation. 

Please see the links below.

In English today we are going to be writing our winter sensse poem for Bear using all of the ideas we collected last week. You can use as many of the resources as you want to for support. We can't wait to read them!

Shared reading 


Shared reading involves children joining in with the reading and comprehension of a text whilst guided and supported by an adult. The text can be read by an adult if it is tricky or the child can read it themselves. The reader should be encouraged to use expression in voice and note the features of the text e.g. the title, any illustrations, the author/ illustrator and the structure of the text. Shared reading aims to improve comprehension skills known as VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval of information and sequencing). During shared reading the children are encouraged to ask and answer comprehension questions either verbally or in written form and any feedback about the text should be encouraged and discussed.


Please see the links below for the shared reading text and tasks. Please choose the appropriate task level that suits your child's ability level. 



  • Observe or handle evidence to ask questions and find answers to questions about the past.
  • Use artefacts, pictures, stories, online sources and databases to find out about the past.
  • I can sort and classify animals by what they ate.


What did dinosaurs eat?


In today's lesson we are going to try and find out what dinosaurs in the past ate. Do you already know? You could use your vocabulary mat which was sent home over Christmas to help you. 

Let's learn and understand the scientific words for animals which eat meat, plants and both.


We know that dinosaurs were Omnivores, Herbivores and Carnivores. 

We need to research to find out which dinosaurs were Carnivores, which were Herbivores and which were Omnivores. Then we need to sort them into groups. 

Can you use the dinosaur fact cards below, your own dinosaur knowledge, books if you have any at home or the internet with an adult to help to find out which dinosaurs were

Omnivores, Herbivores and Carnivores. 



Activity 1 

Can you write the name and draw a picture of one dinosaur who was a Carnivore, a dinosaur who was a Herbivore and a dinosaur who was an Omnivore. If you have dinosaurs at home you could sort them into groups and write these labels next to them and send us a photograph. e.g. 


Activity 2

If you prefer to cut and stick why not have a go at sorting these dinosaurs into the correct part of the Venn diagram. The answers are on the final page so that you check whether you were right. 



Story time 

Each day there will be a story or poem read to the children by a member of the Key Stage One team. 

Please see the link below for the story today. We hope you enjoy it.
