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 the minibeast simple sentences.


Brain warm up: Choose a tricky word that you find hard (It could be Phase 3 or 4) and see how many times you can write it accurately in 30 seconds. You will need an adult to time you or learn how to use a timer yourself. Repeat this with another word or two.


Phase 4 learning: Match the caption to the picture

Click on the link below and complete the second page. Read the captions and match them to the correct picture. You don’t need to print the sheet you can read and match them on the computer.

You will need a pencil, paper, coloured pencils and don’t forget your teddy talk partner!


**Create a story map for the traditional story, Hansel and Gretel. Include some labels on your map. Can you include a speech bubble?**


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)
  • Capital letters for names

Maths: Developing a sense of ten

You will need number 10 objects and 2 containers.

** Today you will learn to sort ten objects in to 2 bowls to find different combinations of numbers that make 10 (number bonds to 10). **

**If you want more challenge, then choose a way to record your ideas. You could use a part-part-whole diagram, a bar model or a number sentence.**


Key questions:

Which bowl has more?

Which bowl has fewer objects?

Can you count the objects in the bowls?
