Home Learning Activities

Welcome back everybody!


Thank you for making me feel so welcome already! I have really enjoyed my first two weeks and Cookley and cannot wait to work with you all in person as soon as it is safe to do so. 


I hope you enjoyed last week’s Home Learning linked to “The Tiger Who Came to Tea” as much as I did. I really enjoyed seeing all the fabulous things you got up to on Tapestry! It would be great to see a few more people posting what they are up to as this is really helping me to get to know you and your families better. I really enjoy seeing, responding and supporting you with the activities I have set but you can also post about any of the exciting things you get up to at home such as walks, exercise, cooking, drawing… anything, as this helps me to know that you are safe and well.


This week’s 'Book of the Week' is another story I really love. The reason it is special to me is because my copy of the book was given to me by my Mum as a present when I first became a teacher. Do you have any special books that were given to you as a present or that have a special memory?


The story is called “The Crunching, Munching Caterpillar” and I will be posting a video of me reading it to you on Tapestry over the weekend, ready for Monday. I hope you enjoy it! In case you cannot access Tapestry, here is YouTube version of the book:

(I do not own the rights to this book but you can purchase it here


If you like this book, you might also like these other books about caterpillars, butterflies and other minibeasts that you could buy or watch on YouTube:

  • The Very Lazy Ladybird by Isobel Finn

  • Mad About Minibeasts by Giles Andreae

Please find this week's activities on the next pages. There is lots to keep you busy but there is no pressure to do them all. Pick the ones which best suit your child, yourself and the resources you have. I would recommend that you attempt at least one from each section. Where it fits, these activities have been linked to ‘The Crunching Munching Caterpillar’
