  • If a grown up says a number can you hold up the right amount of fingers as fast as you can?

  • Will and Nancy tried to make a bridge like the one in the story of the Billy Goats Gruff.
  • They balanced a mat on top of a tin of beans and a jar of jam.
  • Will sat on it to see if it was a strong bridge.
  • Could you have a go at making a bridge?
  • It could be big or small.
  • You could make it inside or outside.
  • You can use anything you want to make your special bridge.






  • Today we have a difficult challenge for you to try at home.
  • The word 'goat' has four letters in it.
  • Have a go at writing the four letters one at a time.
  • Use the pictures and rhymes below from our phonic system to help you.
  • Remember to hold your pencil correctly if you can - a grown up will help you



  • Start with the letter 'o' as this is the easiest one to write.
  • Try and start writing from the top of the letter.


  • Now have a go at 'a'. It is like 'o' and you start writing from the top of the letter.

  • Now try 't'. Remember to start at the top again and put the line across at the end.

  • The last letter is 'g'. This is like writing 'a' with a long curl underneath. It is difficult to do but have a go - you can do it.

  • When you have tried writing the four letters can you write them again in the right order to make goat?
