Use the word mat provided below


For example:


Dear three bers,

From Goldilocks.



This week we will be learning about height.

  • Star words you will need: measure, height, tall, short, taller, shorter, tallest, shortest, describe, compare
  1. Look at the pictures of the characters from the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.
  2. Today we will be focusing on these ways to describe height: tallest, shortest.
  3. Say the star words.
  4. Can you compare the height of the characters? Decide which character is the tallest and which character is the shortest.
  5. How do you know? Can you measure them by making a tower of cubes e.g. Lego/Duplo/blocks?
    Key questions: Can you compare the height of the objects? Which object is tallest and which object is shortest? How do you know? How tall are the objects?

Extra Activities:


  1. The three bears eat hot cereal called 'porridge' for breakfast. What do you usually have for breakfast? Can you write sentences or draw pictures and label what you have have for breakfast.
  2. Make a bear mask/ Goldilocks mask
  3. Dramatic Play Area - Provide a large, medium, and small size chair and bowls. Add three forks, spoons, cups, napkins, etc. Place shredded paper or oats in a bowl. Let your child wear the bears and Goldilocks headbands and pretend to be Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

    Adapted by Jolanda Garcia, KidsSoup Inc.
    (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

    Papa Bear, Papa Bear, 
    Hunting near the trees. 
    Feasting on the honeycomb 
    Made by busy bees. 

    Mama Bear, Mama Bear, 
    stiring the big pot.
    Porrige is their favorite dish 
    They like it when it's hot.

    Baby Bear, Baby Bear, 
    Resting in his bed.
    dreaming of brand new toy
    and a hat that's red.
    Zzzz, zzzz, zzzz.
  5. Read someone these interesting bear facts to your child: Bear Facts: Bears are large, heavyset mammals with fur and very short tails. 
    Bears vary in size and colors.
    Bears are very strong. 
    Male bears are called boars or he-bears and female bears are called sows or she-bears. 
    Baby bears are called cubs. 
    Bear homes are called dens. 
    Bears are wild animals. 
    Bears usually walk on all four feet, moving both legs on one side of their body at the same time (ambling). 
    Bears sometimes stand upright. 
    Bears mark trails and trees along their trail by rubbing against the trees with their bodies, scratching them with their claws, or making marks with their teeth. 
    Bears are omnivores. They eat animals and plants. Their favorite food: berries, honey, fish, leaves, nuts, rodents, insects, and frogs.
    Panda bears eat bamboo. 
    Polar bears eat seals, sea birds, fish, and crabs. 
    Bears love to sleep in caves or between rocks to use as a den. 
    Bears sleep during the winter months to avoid the extreme cold. 
    Bears eat a lot during spring, summer, and fall to accumulate fat that allows them to go into a deep sleep during winter. 
    Bears sleep day and night during winter but occasionally wake up. (This is not a true hibernation because bears remain fully conscious and lose little weight.) 
    Bears make several different sounds: snuffling, growling, or grunting. 
    Bear cubs are usually born in the winter and stay with their mother for one to three years.



What should you do if you get lost…

In a shop?

On the street?

In the leisure center/pool?

In the park?

In the cinema?

Train station?

If you are at home and something bad happens – do you know what number to ring for help?



Daily Task

Describe what you look like.

Say what you look like in full sentences.

Then sound out the words and write each sentence.

Draw a picture of yourself.

If you would like to practise reading, open the documents below.

Your child should sound out each word, blend and say the word and read the sentence. Then match the sentence to the correct picture.

I hope this helps.
