Check out the following website to help with reading and phonics.


This is the RWI website - the books the children read in school and at home.



All lessons will be available at 9.30 am.

Set 1, 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will restart.
Set 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will include new words for reading and spelling.





  1. Use your story mountain or sequenced pictures to re-tell the story ‘The little Red Hen.
  2. What happens in the story? What happens at the start, middle and end of the story? What do the characters say? What do the characters do?
  3. Write sentences to retell the story.
  4. For example: “Who will help me plant the wheat? said the hen. Not I! said the dog. Not I! said the cat. Not I! said the duck.”



Remember: sound out each word, finger space between each word, write letters on the line and full stop at the end.

Parents can write tricky words and children can copy the words to help write the sentences.

This week we will be learning about halving.

  • Star words you will need: half, halving, parts, whole, part-part-whole model, objects, shape, amount, sharing, divide, equal, groups, fraction, part-part-whole model
  1. Halving means sharing into two equal groups.
  2. We are dividing the whole into two equal parts.
  3. Half means one of two equal parts.
  4. Two halves make a whole.
  5. Look at the picture for an example.
  6. Today we are going to be sharing without the part-part-whole model.
  7. Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. pens, toys. 20 is the whole.
  8. Share your 20 objects into two equal groups.
  9. Move one object at a time.
  10. Move the next object into another group. Repeat until you have shared all of your objects.
  11. How many objects are in each group/part? Count each part.
  12. What does halving mean?
  13. Explain what you are doing in full sentences. E.g. “The whole is 20. I shared 20 objects into two equal parts. There are 10 objects in this part and 10 objects in this part. Two parts make the whole.”
  14. Repeat for a variety of amounts/numers.


Key questions: Can you show half using a part-part-whole model? Can you share the objects into two equal parts? Can you share all amounts equally? What is halving?

Understanding the world

Talk about flour and make some bread rolls together. Make and knead the dough, then shape it into rolls and bake them in the oven!
