Please can you choose a book and spend 10 minutes+ reading/sharing it with an adult or older sibling. It can be a book that you have at home or an eBook on the Oxford Owl website.

Things to remember to be a good reader...

- Look at front cover to work out the title.

- Can you find the author's name?

- Be a good digraph detective!

- Track words with your finger.

-  Look out for any tricky words you know how to read by sight.

- Use WORD BREAKDOWN to say when there's a word you don't understand or know what it means in the story context.


If you would like another activity, then read/listen to ‘Doing the Animal Bop’.

You can listen to the story, or mute it and read parts of the story. You can also dance along and do some animal actions!

Maybe you could also try to listen out for some rhyming words!


Brain warm up: Warm up your brain by listening to the Phase 3 or 4 tricky words songs. Ask an adult to help you search on YouTube.

Phase 3 song: ‘Phase 3 tricky words song say hello to’

Phase 4 song: ‘Phase 4 Tricky Words Song Sight Words Song for said, have, like, come, some, what, when’


*Remember to take photographs of the tricky words and sing along too!*


Phase 4 learning: To help you learn Phase 4 Tricky words, you can choose to either play ‘Tricky Word Trucks’ on the Phonics play website or make your own tricky word dice. Add the tricky words that you find the hardest and keep rolling! Or if you have a dice at home you could number your tricky words and when you roll that number you have to try and read that word. Play a game with an adult or sibling, if you say the word correctly you could get a point!


If you would like more challenge, then when you roll the dice, write that word in a sentence.


Today I’d like you to practice Capital letters and small letters. Choose letters that you know that you need to improve.


Practise forming letters in different ways:

1. In the air – SKY WRITING

2. On a family member’s back (or your pet- gently!) – TICKLE WRITING



Quick Check!

Are you using the correct pencil grip?

Are you starting the letter in the correct place?

Are your letters sitting on the line?


How did you do? What are your stars and wish?

Q. What have you done particularly well?

Q. How could you make your letters even better?

Maths: Investigating number combinations within 20

You will need:

A number line 0-20, number cards 1-20, 20 small objects for counting e.g. pennies, 4 small bowls or containers (or you could draw circles/purses on a sheet of paper).


**Have a go at sharing 14 objects into your 4 containers. How many different ways can you find? Make sure you do careful counting using your counting finger! Have a go at recording your thinking using a parts whole diagram. Now choose another number and do the same**

Can you be a superstar learner and use the maths key vocabulary today?     *same, different, share equally, groups*

Key Questions

How many objects are in each container?

Does each container have the same amount of objects?

How many are in each container?

How many objects are in each group?

Can you share this number equally between the containers?

Does each container have the same amount or a different amount?

Wellbeing Friday

You've worked hard this week, so it's time to take some time to relax your body and calm your mind. Follow the link below to Cosmic Yoga and listen to 'Peace Out: Friendly wishes'. When you've finished, think about how it made you feel. Could you relax? Did you have pictures in your mind? Relaxing, being still and slowing down your breathing takes practise but you get better each time you do it. Have a lovely weekend. smiley
