Tuesday 26th January

Happy Tuesday all. I hope you are ready for Tuesday’s home learning.



Our topic activity today is an experiment and taste activity. You will need 2 bananas and a freezer. Peel one banana and put it in the freezer for a short while. When the banana has frozen, take it out of the freezer. Now taste the banana that has not been in the freezer, then taste the banana that is frozen. Does the frozen banana taste like a banana ice lolly?

You could also have a go at making Eskimo Bananas.

You will need – banana, lolly stick, chocolate and sprinkles (or an alternative) to decorate.

Peel the bananas, cut them in 2. Poke the end with a lolly stick and put in the freezer for about 20 minutes.

When the bananas are frozen, melt some chocolate in a bowl, then dip the cold bananas into the melted chocolate.

Cover the chocolate banana with sprinkles and then serve immediately!

Miss Edwards and I hope you enjoy this activity. We look forward to seeing your pictures.



Today I would like the children to practise writing their name using the correct letter formation. Following on from that, we are going to practise forming the ladder letters correctly. Please encourage your child to look on the attached document to see where they need to start to write the letters. You can practise writing the letters on a whiteboard, on paper, in salt, glitter or finger paint.


Recap ai, ay, ee

Today we are going to revisit the or digraph. It is the same action and song as ee. You can find those on yesterday’s home learning page.
