Today is World Book Day 2021!


We hope that you enjoy completing today's home learning tasks.

We have also included some additional World Book Day activities (below).



  • As it is World Book Day today, we want you to look through all of your favourite books at home.
  • See if you can find any of the digraphs (two letters that make one sound) that we have already learnt. Which words are they in? Can you have a go at sounding them out? You might like to write them out too?
  • Can you find any 'red words' that we have been learning as well? 
  • Then choose your favourite story book and ask a grown-up to read this out to you. See if you can help a grown-up sound out some or the shorter CVC (consonant vowel consonant words) and some of our 'red words'.
  • Afterwards, see if you can use a full sentence to tell a grown-up why it is your favourite story. 
  • Happy reading - we hope you have lots of fun today!




It's World Book Day - yippee! We do love dressing up in EYFS! We are really looking forward to seeing you today on Teams, all dressed up as your favourite book character. Please email a photograph to your teacher for the Gallery. We will also be using the photographs to make a display in the classroom to welcome the children back and for them to talk about on the first day back. If your child does not want to dress up, could you please email a photograph of them wearing their normal clothes but reading their favourite book. Print out the photograph if you can to stick onto a piece of paper ( or draw yourself ) and ask your grown up to rule lines underneath it for you to write on. Start your sentence with, 'I dressed up as......'

Otherwise, there is a template sheet if you prefer to print out below.



Today's lesson is on the Oak Academy website. Once on the site, select Subjects -Early Years Foundation Stage - Maths - Number Grouping and Sharing - Lesson 9 - Recognising the connection between sharing and grouping and solving practical problems -

Listen to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and keep a count of how many things the hungry caterpillar ate. How many things did he eat altogether?
