Tuesday’s Topic Activity


The weather changes throughout the seasons. Listen to this information text which is read out loud, it tells us all about the spring weather.

Weather in Spring Read Aloud

Chat to your grown up and talk about how the weather is changing now spring is coming. How is the weather in spring compared to the weather in winter? Do you like the spring weather? Why? Why not?


If you can get out to the park or on a local walk today, then it would be awesome if you get your senses at the ready and do this lovely Spring Senses Scavenger Hunt with your lovely grown up. The link to print it is below the pic. You could write a list to take with you of things to find after looking at the pics on the screen.


Have a lovely time!

It is time for some handwriting practise. Below is a file with a sheet for each letter of the alphabet. We teach letter formation in a specific order of letters, so please scroll down and print only c a and d for today. If you have no printer, then copy the sheet with letters in yellow for your child to trace with a darker colour and a few lines with a modelled letter for your child to copy. Make sure they start from the correct point (the bold dot) with each letter.


Today’s learning is coming to an end! Enjoy this spring themed story.

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone! See you tomorrow.
