Recap the story of the Little Red Hen using the PowerPoint on Twinkl or the pdf below.

(The PowerPoint on Twinkl is great if you still have access, but it's too big to upload onto our website page.)

Can your child remember the story and join in with the repeating parts? Can they still retell it on their own using their puppets? Can they use SUPER expression for the characters and appropriate intonation for when questions are asked?


Using the planning frame from last Wednesday (which includes the three new characters and the selection of different jobs that need to be done to create something delicious), we'd like the children to 'rehearse' their very own Little Red Hen story. This should be done 'out loud' and would include a short introduction to the characters before following the flow chart of jobs in order to tell the rest of the story. 


Listen to our version of what the introduction and first part might sound like below to give you the general idea if you're not too sure.

Our Little Red Hen Story

Then children should draw out a simple flow chart of the whole of their story, including the characters at the top, and a quick picture to illustrate each job, with a caption next to these. 

Please see the pdf below for an example of this type of story plan.


Please send us a picture of your story plan through on Seesaw so that we can see how you've got on.


Problem of the Day: Can you solve it? Send us your answer on Seesaw please. 


Today we are learning to count to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number.


Adult to say three numbers (any from 0-100) and children to say the next three numbers in the sequence e.g. adult says 22,23,24 and children to say 25,26 and 27. Repeat with lots of different sequences, including some that count backwards in 1s.

Look at the 100 square below. Adult to say a number and children to count on from that number until adult says stop. Now try and do the same but children to count backwards until adult says stop. 


Adult to say a number from the 100 square and children to represent this number by drawing Dienes or showing paper Dienes. 


Example:  The number is 28 




Adult to say a number from 0-100 and children to colour the number that has been said on their 100 square. Can they draw out or find the paper Dienes to represent this number? 


Ask them which number would come next? How is that number different?
