Have fun doing all the learning - but don't forget to post photos of you doing the activities on your Tapestry Page.



This week we are continuing our Topic - 'Tremendous Travel'. This week we are  going to explore the next form of transport – it has two wheel… can you guess? Yes it’s a bike! Our story focus is 'Mrs Armitige on wheels' by Quentin Blake. Miss Roscoe is reading this on the bedtime stories on our school website. 


Here is a link to a story teller:


 This bike needs..’

What else could you add to your bike? Can you think of something she couldn’t? Lots of children want to be outside at the moment - Talk to your child about what they can add to their bike and where they can go with it in the future. Then think of why you might need all the things on your bike.

Communication and Language 

Play the game Simon says but say Mrs Armitage says… Take it in turns to be the caller,

Discuss the rules of the game and how you feel if one of you broke the rules.


Physical development

Could you ride your bike around the garden and add what you think your bike needs?

Design a bike and label it.


Write a few sentences about why your bike is special and different to everyone else’s.


Make a poster on how awesome your bike it and share it on Tapestry for us all to see.





Mrs Armitage had to buy lots of items from the shop to add to her bike. In our maths this week we are going to add items that she brought from the shop together.  There is adult support in the word document on how we teach this to reception children using concrete (items you can hold) and pictorial (lines you can draw) methods.
