Good Morning Brilliant Butterflies!

Did you guess that it was forget-me-nots yesterday?

Do you know what this flower is called?



Please can you choose a non-fiction 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.


**Today, I’d like you to hunt for labels, photographs and diagrams in your non-fiction book/books**


Key questions of the day...

How do you know that it’s a non-fiction book?

What kinds of things would you expect to see in book?

Are there any labels in the book?

Are there any photographs?

Are there any diagrams (a picture than explains something)?

Find something that interests you from the text.


Brain warm up: Choose a way to warm up your brain by recalling Phase 3 sounds: You could use your own flashcards or the PhonicsPlay website ‘Flashcard Speed Trial’ or ‘A Giggling Grapheme’.


Phase 4 learning: Continue the sheets from yesterday. You need to read the words and circle the word that matches the picture. Complete one or two pages today and continue tomorrow. You don’t have to print the sheets, you can just look at the picture, read the words and write down the word that is correct.

(Or if you prefer using the phonics games on the computer then find a phase 4 game to play)

If you would like more challenge then try writing sentences using some of these words.


Maths: Exploring counting in pairs

Follow the link below for today's maths lesson.

You will need 4 pairs of socks and a teddy to talk to.


**Find objects around your house that you can practice counting in pairs**


**If you would like more challenge then write out your own number line with numbers 1-20. Now circle these numbers: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20. Practice counting in 2’s by shouting the numbers above but whispering all the others. E.g. whisper 1, shout 2, whisper 3, shout 4.**


Follow the link below to access the Oak Academy Lesson ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears Story Map’


You will need a pencil, paper, your brainbox and a teddy talk partner. 


**Today, you will create a story map and re-tell the story. Add labels to your story map**


*If you want more challenge, then you could add a speech bubble to your story map.*


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
  • Finger spaces needed between each word
