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 to do more then choose an activity from  READING resources and weblinks on the main Reception home learning page. There are sheets to print for reading and comprehension or websites to find interactive books so choose something that interests you!


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 ‘br’ I can also think of brown and brick.


Phase 4 learning: Have fun playing ‘Alien Escape’ on Phonics Bloom to practise your segmenting and blending skills to re-arrange the sounds to spell a word. Or you could choose an activity from the ‘PHONICS resources and weblinks’ section on the main page

Handwriting: Today I’d like you to practice your one armed robot letters.


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?

A tens frame, a container, 10 objects for counting and number two sets of number cards to 5, one set of number cards that increase in multiples of 2 (2, 4, 6, 8, 10) and a part, part whole diagram (you can print one or draw one).

** Use your objects, choose an amount and find half. Can you record it by using a part part whole diagram?**

If you would like some more fun activities to do at home then look at the solving problems halving home learning challenges below.
