Week Beginning 22.6.2020

Our Topic is:

Teddy Bears’ Picnic


Activity 1

Complete the teddy dot to dot. There are three sheets, all varying in difficulty, please choose the version that meets your child’s needs.


If your child needs practice recognising numerals to 10, there is a colour by number sheet that would be good to use, cover the key and tell your child what number each colour is, challenging them to find the correct numeral.

Activity 2

Complete the ordering numbers to 20 home learning sheet.

Activity 3

Count the biscuits the Teddies are eating at their picnic. See the down load for the work sheet.

Activity 4

This week’s number is the NUMBER 17

Complete the number of the week work sheet and All About 17 PowerPoint.

Activity 5

Sharing Out and Fractions.

Have a picnic for 4 (may be: mum, dad, child, teddy!). Have food that needs sharing between everyone there. Make 2 sandwiches using 4 slices of bread. Everyone gets half a sandwich. Children are to cut the sandwiches in half trying to make each half exactly the same. Share out 8 small biscuits and 12 grapes so that everyone gets the same. Share and apple between everyone. Can children think of a way to do it? Adults cut an apple into 4 equal pieces - using the word quarters. When we have had a teddybears’ picnic at school I always got an angel slab cake so that we could talk about it already having 3 sections and I would introduce the word thirds. (At school we would be dividing by 8 people, not 4, so if you do get a slab cake, halve it before you do the picnic!) Can children think of how to cut the cake into 4 equal pieces!


Play ICT games ‘Pay for It’ game. Select the first level – amounts up to 10p (and if it’s too easy then more up to the next level). You have to move the scanner over the thing on the conveyer to see how much it is.



This week the literacy work is based on the story Where’s My Teddy by Jez Alborough following this link to hear it being read by Jez Alborough himself:


Can you think of a few different words that mean ‘big’?

Can you think of a few different words that mean ‘small’?

Where is the story set? Can you describe the setting to your parent using brilliant words and full sentences?  Write one very special sentence to describe the setting.  (e.g. The story is set in a wood with enormous trees.)

Think about what happened first in the story. What happened in the middle of the story? What happened at the end of the story? Have a go at writing 3 sentences that tell the story in sequence.

Describe your favourite teddy bear on the teddy sheet in the down loads.

Topic Work:  Teddy Bears’ Picnic

Activity 1

Listen and sing along to the Teddy Bears’ Picnic song


Activity 2


This is an old teddy bears’ picnic animation but it’s lovely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUkqjsINb1Y

Activity 3

Play the Picnic memory game (we had a go at this on the Zoom call). Cut out the pictures of things you might take on a picnic. Place some of the pictures on a tray. Children try and memorise the items. Put a picnic blanket over them and secretly remove one. Can your child think what has been removed? (You can of course collect real things, put them on a tray and cover with a blanket.)

Activity 4

Has one of the more mature people in your family got an old bear from their child hood? If so, children are to compare the old bear to their special bear and talk about the differences and similarities. Please can conversations cover what it was like to be a child a few years ago compared to now.

Activity 5

Look at the PowerPoint The Old Toy Room: Comparing Old and New Toys.

Now look at the pictures of different toys and sort them into piles of ‘Old’ and ‘New’ toys. Please encourage discussion and reasoning around why toys are place in each group (using what has been learnt by looking at the PowerPoint).
