Woodside EYFS Welcome back to Term 6!
This page will list the weekly home-learning ideas for everyone in our class.
Mrs Field will be available to help you each school day via the Class Dojo messaging function and will continue to send daily 'class story' posts.
We ask that you continue to use Class Dojo portfolio function to send in:
- photos of your learning. It is not necessary that you send a picture for every page of work, however, we love seeing your progress and superb efforts,
- video clips of you reading your book,
- video messages, journal (text) entries or photos, sharing what you are proud of both in your learning and your well-being activities (like new skills, achievements and exciting news)
In turn, teachers will continue to post messages of encouragement to your portfolio posts.
Remember we are all 'Learning together through friendship and faith'.

Term 6 - Week 6&7 Monday 6th July - Friday 17th July 2020
Hello Everyone! We are so proud of all the work you have produced throughout our mini space topic - what a hard working class Woodside are!
For the next 2 weeks our mini topic will be 'Dinosaurs'. We have got lots of exciting activities planned for you all and we hope you enjoy them at home and at school. Mrs Perry will be continuing to check Class Dojo each day and pass on any messages to us.
We wanted to share how impressed we have been with the children, the learning that has taken place has been fantastic! For those who are back in school we are so thrilled to have you back and for those at home we miss you and are so proud of your achievements. We are very lucky to have such a brilliant class! From us all in Woodside x
Navigate to Home Learning - Early Years.
Term 6 Week 6 is all about
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/ The Dinosaur that pooped a planet
Here are some Dinosaur math's activities to try if you have time.
Sorting - For this activity you can use pictures or if you have any small dinosaur toys at home you can use those. Sort the dinosaurs using different criteria - those that can fly, have 4 legs, have 2 legs, carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, large, small... Can the children explain how they have sorted them? Are there any that overlap?
Addition and Subtraction - As above you can use small dinosaur toys or pictures. Can you add the legs together? Use 2 -3 pictures/dinosaurs at a time. Get the children to record the number sentence first and then solve it. This can also be used for subtraction too.
Data collection - what is your families favourite dinosaur? Draw a pictograph to collect the date and then let us know!
Measure - How tall or long were the dinosaurs? Can you find out how tall or long these dinosaurs were:
Can you find any more?
This is also the time to go over skills taught throughout the year:
Simple halving and doubling - this could be halving objects (cutting playdough shapes in half or progressing to numbers)
Doubling low numbers
One more, one less to 20 and beyond
Simple addition and subtraction
Naming basic 2d and 3d shapes
Recording number sentences
Ordering events in the day, can you tell the time using o'clock?
Here are a few more activities
Other good maths games can be found on topmarks.co.uk
