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. 


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 - Weekly focus: Goldilocks and the three bears



Do you know the story of Goldilocks and the Three bears? What do you know about it? Who are the main characters? Where is the story set?




Goldilocks And The Three Bears

Can you write a message to the bears from Goldilocks. What might Goldilocks say to the bears? Do you think she should apologise for going into their house and eating their porridge and sleeping in their bed?


Share a different version of the story together?

Goldilocks and Just the One Bear

Extra challenge: If you have any porridge oats at home, with an adult have a go at making your own bear porridge. What toppings in your cupboard could you use? Can you draw or write the ingredients you would like in your porridge?



Weekly focus: Exploring more patterns


Warm up:

Practise counting in 2s with the help of an adult at home. Can you count in 2s using the socks you have?

The Counting by Twos Song

Can you create patterns with your food? With an adult, if you have 2 or 3 fruits could you create a pattern? Eg. banana, apple, grape, banana, apple and grape or banana, banana, grape, banana, banana.


Make patterns with other objects around your home. Can your family guess what comes next in your pattern?

Challenge: On your daily walk, collect objects to create a pattern. Can you find any leaves, rocks, daisies or twigs. Create your pattern and if you can share it on our school blog.
