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.


If you would like another reading activity:

Read some sentences about Space. (If you scroll down to the bottom there are pictures to go with the captions).


Brain warm up: Warm up your brain by reading the words on the Phase 4 sound mat. If you want a challenge then see if you can think of any other words that contain some of these consonant clusters. E.g. For the consonant cluster ‘nd’ I can also think of sand and band.


Phase 4 learning: Picture labels

Click on the resource below and choose a picture. Complete the labels. You don’t need to print the sheet you can just write the words in your book or on a sheet of paper.

You will need a pencil, lined paper and your teddy talk partner!


**Today, you will act out the story and start to write it.**


You are becoming fantastic authors and we can’t wait to read your stories!


Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation (use letter families poster)
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words? (You could use your phase 3 sound mat)
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing

e.g. Gol-dee-locs

  • Finger spaces needed between each word
  • Remember to use capital letters for names e.g. Red


*For more challenge, don’t use the word bank, sound out all the words yourself. Also you could try using some time words to order the events of the story e.g. Then, Next, After that.*

Maths: Measuring periods of time in simple ways

**Time yourself, or ask an adult to time you doing some different activities then if you want to you could record how many seconds it takes you**

Some ideas for activities to time:

How long does it take you to put your coat on?

How long does it take you to put on your shoes?

How long does it take you to tidy your toys?

How long does it take you to do 20 star jumps?

Now think of your own!


Star words:

timer, seconds, longer, shorter, How many?
