Don’t forget to 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.



To help children learning to read at home during school closure, we are streaming phonics, reading and spelling lessons every weekday on our YouTube channel.

Each lesson is ten to fifteen minutes long and available for 24 hours.

From 1st June:

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.


  • Open the document below to sound out and read the simple sentences.



  1. Look at your story map of ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’.
  2. What happens in the story?
    Write sentences to retell the story. Can you write sentences to explain the beginning, middle and end of the story?
  3. Parents can write the red words ‘you’ and ‘to’ on a piece of paper to help you.

I will attach a document which involves the children building sentences alongside pictures. This will also help them remember the story and when writing sentences themselves.



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



This week we will be learning about one more and one less.

  • Star words you will need: one more, one less, add, subtract, take away, count, number, object, number line
  1. Today we will be focusing on: one more and one less.
  2. Choose a number card from 0-20.
  3. Find it and circle it on a number line.
  4.  Show one more than the number by doing one jump forwards. Circle the number that you ‘land’ on. Say which number you land on.
  5. Find your starting number again.
  6. Show one less than the number by doing one jump backwards.
  7. Circle the number that you ‘land’ on.
  8. Say which number you land on. e.g. “I started with 16. I did one jump forward on the number line. I landed on 17. One more than 16 is 17. I started with 16. I did one jump back on the number line. I landed on 15. One less than 16 is 15.”
  9. Repeat this for a variety of numbers.
  10. Can you show one more and one less using objects?


Key questions: Can you show one more/less using a number line? Can you say one more/less than a number in a full sentence? Can you show one more/less than a number using objects?


Extra Activities:

  1. The Troll was very unkind to the 3 Billy Goats Gruff. Talk to your child about the unkind things he did and said. Try and think of somethings he could do instead, to be friendly to the goats.
  2. Make a Troll. It could be a puppet, picture, a collage, a model or something completely different.
  3. Can you think of a different way the 3 Billy Goats Gruff story could end? Write a new ending or draw a picture to show how you would like the story to end.
  4. Tell the story of the 3 Billy Goats Gruff to someone you know – maybe over the phone? Remember to use different voices for all of the characters.
  5. The 3 Billy Goats Gruff are 3 different sizes. Have a look around your house and find something that is bigger than you and something that is smaller than you. Put the objects into a ‘bigger’ and ‘smaller’ list.
  6. Use books or the internet to find out 3 facts about goats. Write them down.


Understanding the world

Science Experiment

You will need:


  1. A selection of card and paper
  2. Cardboard tubes, boxes, lollipop sticks – anything you have at home that might work
  3. Children’s scissors
  4. Sticky tape
  5. Sticky tack
  6. String
  7. Small animal/goat toys or something similar
  8. Photos of different types of bridges



  1. Tell our child that the goats need a new bridge to cross over the river so that the troll doesn’t scare them.
  2. Can they help by making a bridge for the goats?
  3. They can only use the materials and tools that you have left out for them.
  4. Look at the photos of bridges and talk about the different shapes and how the bridges go across the water.
  5. Your child can then decide how to join the materials to create their bridges.
  6. Once your child has made their bridge/s, they could be tested to see if they are strong enough to support the goats/toy/something similar as they cross the river. Put two objects/boxes/chairs together with a gap and put bridge on top.

Questions to ask your child:

  1. The goats need a new way to cross over the river.
  2. Can you help them by building a new bridge?
  3. What shape is the bridge going to be?
  4. What are you going to use?
  5. Is there any way you can make your bridge stronger?
  6. Do you need more tape?
  7. Do you need to make the bridge longer/shorter?
  8. Is your bridge strong enough to hold the goats?
