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 ‘Obb and Bob’ on Phonics Bloom. Or you could choose an activity from the ‘PHONICS resources and weblinks’ section on the main page



Wednesday: Handwriting

Today I’d like you to practice your Ladder 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?

Wednesday Maths: Exploring subtraction as partitioning

You will need: 10 small objects for counting

** Use the slideshow that goes with this lesson and have a go at re-telling the subtraction story. Then make up your own subtraction stories to explain the subtractions below (choose your level of challenge). Use your 10 objects (or 20 if you choose the challenge questions) and have a go at using a part-part-whole diagram to record. **

9 – 3 =              17 – 5 =

7 – 4 =              20 – 6 =

5 – 2 =              18 – 9 =

8 – 1 =               17 – 11 =

Example: (8 – 3 = _)There were 8 people on the bus. The bus stopped at school and 3 people got off. How many people were left on the bus?

Can you be a superstar learner and use the maths star words today?
