27th April

Week Two beginning 27th April 2020


It has been so great to see so many of you using the school blog. It would be great to see all of you using it and showing us the amazing work you are doing! You could show us any baking, creative or writing activities you have been doing! Look out for the teachers' posts as well to see what we are getting up to!




Please practice saying and writing the sounds that you know. Do you remember the action 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


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


Are these words real or nonsense?


plimp     crunch     skunk      scrunch      speet      troop      crisp      drift      bright


Read and write these sentences:


Can you stand on your chin and grin?


Look! The children shrank.


I like crisps.


Do you drink milk?





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. 


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?


AFTER READING - 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 - Weekly focus: Who sank the boat?


Look at the front cover of this book. What do you predict it will be about? What can you see? Where do you think the story is set?

Share the story ‘Who sank the boat’


Extra challenge:  Who sank the cup?


At bath time, or in a large bowl of water add items to a cup. How many items does it take to make the cup sink? Can you draw a picture?




Maths - Weekly focus: 3D shapes


How many shapes can you see in this house?


Do you remember any 3D shapes? Sing together the 3D shapes song


Together have a look around your home. Can you see any 3D shapes? 


Can you make a chart like the one below of which 3D shapes you find and where you found them?


3D Shapes Where I found them








Practice the song ‘Hey diddle diddle’ below from our music sessions.


26 Hey Diddle Diddle song.mp3

Hey, diddle, diddle (tap knees)

The cat (3 fingers on cheeks like whiskers) and the fiddle (play fiddle/violin)

The cow (hands making horns from top of head) jumped over (hands together make a jumping motion in front of you) the moon

The little dog laughed (two fingers on each hand, pointed down in front of you like dog paws) to see such fun

And the dish (hands joined together like a circe in front of you) ran away with the spoon (mime feeding yourself with a spoon)


Hey, diddle, diddle

The cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the moon

The little dog laughed to see such fun

And the dish ran away with the

Dish ran away with the

Dish ran away with the spoon






Children need regular breaks and exercise. If you have a safe outdoor space please ensure you get some fresh air and exercise. If you do not have an outdoor space try one of these videos below.

Alternatively create a GoNoodle account to choose your own champion to power up by doing some different forms of exercise.
