Summer 2

Week beginning June 1st

Hello everyone,

I hope you have all enjoyed your Half Term break and managed to relax in the sunshine. We have been so lucky that the sun has been shining on us throughout lockdown and I hope you are all fit and well. Thank you again for keeping in touch, it is always lovely to hear from you and see photos of the children. We even had a lockdown birthday this week.

As we enter the final half term of our Reception year our topic is 'How long is a piece of string?' which links with our Maths work on Shape, Space and Measure.


In literacy our key text this week is Titch by Pat Hutchins


Watch You’ll Soon Grow Into Them, Titch (10.12 mins)

Watch Titch Making Biscuits (10 mins)


Using a picture of Titch can you describe him e.g. Titch is little. He has a blue jumper. Titch has blond hair.


Retell your favourite part of the story using the word mat. 3 or 4 sentences



What happens at the end?  Using a picture as a template, retell the ending in your own words e.g. The baby came home and Titch said ‘he can have mine’. Pete and Mary said ‘they are too big’. Titch said ‘he’ll soon grow into them!’


Write the steps Titch took to make his biscuits.

Draw your favourite biscuit. Write a sentence or two about it.

In Maths this week we are measuring using non-standard measures such as hands, feet and blocks.


Learning outcomes:

Orders two or three items by length or height (40-60 months)


Early Learning Goal Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Measure anything and everything! How many hands tall is mum? How many feet long is the kitchen? How many blocks tall is a teddy?
