Dosbarth Gwennol Home Learning - Friday 7th January 2022

Happy New Year! Welcome back to the start of a new term and new year, as Friday 7th January is a confirmed home schooling day, here are a few activities that I would like your child to complete and email pictures of their work to me.

Activity 1 – Maths – Time – Can you recite all of the months of the year? Check with an adult to see that you have included them all.

Write a list of each of the months of the year and key events that occur in those months to help you to remember them.  For example…

January – 10th Jane’s birthday

February – 1st Chinese New Year

14th St Valentines Day

18th Comic Relief

and so on…..

Activity 2 Literacy – Writing – To write a report detailing what you had for Christmas.  You can write about your favourite present in detail or a paragraph describing each present.  Suggested things to include in your report – a description of your present (s), what does it look, feel, smell, sound or taste like, who gave it to you and why it is so special.  You may also wish to draw a picture of your present.

Activity 3 – New Year Resolutions – At the start of the new year people like to make ‘resolutions’ or goals that they would like to set for themselves.  Think of five goals that you would like to achieve in 2022.  Write them in a list and explain how you are going to try and achieve them.  For example…

Goal 1 – Become a better reader – I am going to go on Nessy for 10 minutes each day.

Mathematics and Numeracy

  • Collect a range of different sized sticks in your garden.  Can you measure them in standard units such as centimetres? Can you measure them in non-standard units i.e using pieces of pasta to measure?
  • Can you draw around your hand? Pretend it’s the giant’s hand.  Estimate how many kidney beans the giant could fit on his hand?
  • Can you log on to TTRockstars and practise your times tables?
  • Can you practice writing your number formation 1-20?
  • Can you learn your number bonds to 10? I.e. 0+10=10, 1+9=10, 2+8=10, 3+7=10, 4+6=10, 5+5=10, 6+4=10 etc.

Language, Literacy and Communication

  • Write a diary – think about what it may be like to be a giant for the day.  What would you do? Who do you live with? How might being a giant be different to being a child?
  • Draw a picture of Jack and colour it in neatly.  Think of as many different adjectives (describing words) as you can to describe Jack and write them down.  Can you do the same for the giant? How are they similar and how are they different?
  • Questionnaire – Think of questions that you would like to ask the giant if you were to meet him.  Write each of your questions down or maybe an adult could scribe them for you.  Don’t forget to use a capital letter to start your question and a question mark.


  • Create a map of Jack’s village, where the house was, the market and the beanstalk.
  • Could you also create a map for the land of the giant and include your own key features.

Expressive Arts

  • Create  your own beanstalk.  It could be a painting, a collage or even a model.  Be as creative as you can!

Health and Well-being

  • Play a board game with a member of your family.  Maybe you could create your own game?
