Hello Wonderful Wrens,

We hope you all enjoyed being pirates last week. We enjoyed seeing your pirate activities on Tapestry.

We have given you some more maths, literacy and phonics activities to complete this week.

Don’t forget to take part in Miss Marriott’s virtual sports day. Details, including videos of how to complete the 5 different activities, can be found on the PE section of the school website (http://www.wicklewoodschool.co.uk/pe-sports-premium/). Make sure you send in your results so we can see which team will be the winner.

Also, don’t forget to join in with the Big Sing event on Friday 19th June at 2 p.m. Details can be found on the following website https://www.norfolkmusichub.org.uk/site/vbs-2020/.

We hope you have a wonderful week.

Have fun!

Mrs Leaford and Mrs Nixon 😊


The daily Read, Write, Inc. lessons are still available to watch at the website below.


We recommend watching the lessons for the sounds your child is less confident with.

We would strongly recommend your child participates in the daily spelling lesson with Rosie. This will help them get ready for the move to year one.


This week the focus for our literacy work is Goldilocks and the Three Bears.


This week we will be thinking about the language of size and pattern.






Read the book Tug Tug (at the bottom of the page).

Discuss with an adult why Black Hat Bob’s thought bubble at the end of the story was funny.

Watch Mrs Nixon’s story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears on Tapestry.

Do you think Goldilocks was a good girl? Why or why not?

Watch Bert and Ernie tell you about the language of size (big and small).


You may also like this funny video about big and small.


Find 3 of the same object from around your house. Can you arrange them in size order? Have you got 3 different size bowls like the 3 bears?


Look at the ‘ch’ and ‘sh’ sheet at the bottom of the page.

Use the book you read yesterday and solve the clues to complete the activity.

Draw an outline of a house. Downstairs you need 2 rooms. Upstairs you need 1 room. Print (or draw) the pictures of the different objects for the room. Can you put them in the right rooms, in size order starting with the smallest?

Mrs Leaford has made an example at the bottom of the page if you are not sure what to do.

Use your picture to help you retell the story to a grown up.

Look at the letter (at the bottom of the page) from Goldilocks. She needs your help.

Can you print and sort the things that belong to the 3 bears? Put them in size order, starting with the smallest.

Try to use the correct words to describe the objects. Remember for height we use tall/taller and short/shorter, for length we use long/longer and short/shorter. For size we use big/bigger and small/smaller.


Look at the sheet ‘Wednesday phonics’. Can you complete the crossword using your set 2 sounds?

Look at the sheet named ‘Wednesday Literacy’. Can you fill out the poster with Goldilocks details? If you aren’t sure of some, you can make them up.

Watch this video to learn about repeating patterns.


Now login into Espresso – Key Stage 1 – Music. Select ‘music maker’ game. Choose 2 objects. Put them into the boxes in a repeating pattern. Click play and you can here the musical pattern you have made. You could make it even trickier by using 3 or more different objects.


Read the book Chips (at the bottom of the page) Discuss why Kim is feeling so angry at the end.

Do you think the others in the story were nice or not?

Use the pictures below to sequence the story of Goldilocks. Stick them in the correct order on the template provided. Leave the boxes free for tomorrow. Colour in your favourite picture. Why do you like that part of the story the best?

Using the Goldilocks pattern sheet below, have a go at saying out loud the pattern to an adult.

Hearing the pattern out loud as well as seeing it can really help.

Then use the little pictures at the bottom to continue the pattern.


Look through the books to find tricky red words of, I, said, no. Count how many you can find and colour in how many times you spot it to make a bar chart. Which was the most popular tricky word in this book?

Read the simple sentences (Goldilocks story sentences) which tell you different parts of the Goldilocks story. Can you cut them out and stick them below the pictures that match the sentence? Now read them all again in the right order to retell the story to someone in your family.

Have a go at creating your own pattern using some of the pictures from the Goldilocks story (Goldilocks pattern pictures) below. Think about whether your pattern will have two different things in it or three. Think about the size of the pictures too. You might want to do big Daddy Bear, Small Baby Bear, then Mummy Bear and then repeat it, Remember to show at least two different repeating sections of your pattern.


This week your reading activities are linked to your phonics lessons. Follow the daily phonics plan for your reading activities this week.

You can also explore other books on Oxford Owl, if you would like.
