Nursery Phonics Challenge 10th July

Hi Nursery!

Well what a fun filled active week you’ve been having. For today’s phonics challenge you will need a space, clear of any trip hazards as you are going to be fast runners moving quickly around the room or garden!

Here is a link to a video showing you the fun Physical Phonics game ‘Pirates and Sailors’ that you might like to try… You will need someone to play with but this can be just one other, your grown up or a sibling.

Who will be the winner and match all those initial sounds?!

Have Phonics Fun! Miss Taylor : )

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!


Year 2 Home Learning- Friday 10th July

Hello Year 2!

We have had some great work again so far this week! Here are today’s activities.

Spellings – This week’s spellings are a recap of the months of the year. Today is spelling test day. Remember to email your teacher to let them know your score.

Months of the Year

📒 Literacy – Today’s task can be found on BBC Bitesize . Head over to the BBC website where you will find today’s reading based activity.

 Maths – Today’s Maths activity is a continuation of the White Rose work and it’s Friday which means only one thing…CHALLENGE TIME!

The worksheet can be found here:


Afternoon activities – This week’s theme is Sport and Newdale’s Mini Olympics. ⚽

Usually, around now, we would be competing in our annual Sports Day festivities across school. As this is not possible this year, we have decided to set you challenges and activities at home that you can complete.

You may notice that on the majority of days, there are gold, silver and bronze awards for the sporting activities. Keep a total of the amount of points you manage to collect over the week and let your teacher know how many you have earned.

We look forward to the children of Newdale adopting a healthy mindset and lifestyle over the week. Maybe you could get involved with some healthy cooking too?

Post your pictures and work to your class blogs, we cannot wait to see them!

Here are some additional ideas that you may wish to carry out to make sure that you are staying active at home


We look forward to seeing your wonderful work! Have a wonderful weekend!
