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.

Thursday Writing: Spider facts

**Watch the Spider clips to find out some more facts about spiders. Talk about the facts that you found interesting. Now write a fact/a few facts about spiders that you found interesting.**

 E.g. Sum spiders can jump and thay are culerful.


Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words?
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing
  • Finger spaces needed between each word
  • Use a capital letters and full stops
  • Try to use 'and' to join your ideas.

Thursday Maths: Estimating and counting

Estimating is making a sensible guess. It doesn’t mean getting the correct number.


You will need: a piece of paper, a pencil and number cards up to 20.

** You will be estimating amounts and finding the right number card or writing the number.**

If you would like another activity, then you can use the sweet shop estimating sheets or choose to do some home learning estimating challenges.
