11th May

Week beginning 11th May 2020


Hope you've all had a good week! It's been great to see so many of you using the school blog - keep it up! Why not set a challenge to try and post at least one thing on the blog this week? Remember, you and your class mates can comment on each other's posts as well! 




Please practice saying and writing the sounds that you know. Do you remember the actions for all the sounds?


Phase 2: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss

Phase 3: j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er


Can you sound out your name and do the actions at the same time?


Practice reading and writing all your tricky words:


I, go, no, the, she, a, me, my, into, he, be, of, was, so, we, all, you, put, said, her, are, they, little, come, like, do, have, some, there


Practice reading and writing these words:

laptop shampoo seashell starfish
helicopter visit handstand wicked
longer market chicken twisting
poison little softest lightning


Can you write a sentence for each of these words?






The Oxford Owl website has a range of free E-books for you to share stories at home. Once you sign up can access the read library.


Read a book! A new one, a borrowed one, an old favourite, just read! Then discuss the book together (see some good questions below). If you’re not sure what a word says, sound it out or use the pictures to help you.


If you would like to share some read aloud stories, you can find some in our Read Aloud Stories folder. 


Why not read this book together? You can use the reading prompts below it as support.

Reading Prompts


BEFORE READING - What can you see on the front cover? Who is the author? Who is the illustrator? Can you find the title? What does it say? What do you think is going to happen in this story?


DURING READING - What do you think will happen next? Do you know what that word/sentence says? What does that word mean? What is happening in the picture?


Did you guess the ending correctly? Was that what you thought would happen? Who was your favourite character? Why? Can you tell me the story in your own words? What was your favourite part? Were there any parts you didn’t like? Why?




Literacy: Jungle Animals


Talk about your favourite jungle animal. What do you know about that animal? Where do they live? What do they eat? What makes them interesting?


Have a look at the facts below or research some of your own about your animal.

Can you create a fact sheet about your animal? Have a look at the example below for an idea of how to create it. Remember to include all the interesting facts you learn, and to draw a picture of your animal! When you're finished, why not post it on the blog to share with everyone?


Maths: Addition


Warm up: Can you count to 20 starting from different numbers? Can you challenge yourself to count to 30 from different numbers? 


Learn and sing this addition song together

Addition Song

Draw a bus, and play a now, then, next game following the instructions below.

1.     First, 3 children get on the bus

        Next, 4 children get on the bus

        Then, 1 child gets on the bus

        How many children are on the bus?

2.     First, 2 children get on the bus

        Next, 2 children get on the bus

        Then, 5 children gets on the bus

        How many children are on the bus?

3.     First, 7 children get on the bus

        Next, 2 children get on the bus

        Then, 4 children get on the bus

        How many children are on the bus?

1.     First, 1 child gets on the bus

        Next, 8 children get on the bus

        Then, 1 child gets on the bus

        How many children are on the bus?


As an extra challenge, if you can, why not download or print off this picture puzzle. There is a hidden picture inside. Follow the key, and colour in the boxes the correct colours. You will have to solve the number sentences first though to find out which colour you need! For example, if a number sentence equals 20, you will have to colour that box in green! 


When you're done, why not post your picture on the blog to show everyone what you found!

You can also get daily learning tasks and activities from White Rose Maths.





This week, share some favourite songs together.
