NEW SOUND to learn today: 


er – better letter


  1. practise writing words with er in them - for example: never, clever, weather, after, corner, better, letter….
  2. Sound out each word for example: b-e-tt-er, n-e-v-er,
  3. Use your fingers to show how many sounds there are in a word or example b-e-tt-er will show 4 fingers
  4. (please note there maybe less sounds than number of letters)
  5. Ask your child how many letters in the word – for example better has 6 letters
  6. Ask your child how many sounds in the word – for example better has 4 sounds

RWI Set 3 Sounds - er

  • Practise holding a pencil correctly
  • Practise writing each letter correctly   
  • Playing with playdough strengthens pencil grip
  • Threading also helps for a better grip – threading laces through a shoe (if you don’t have any other threading resources)




  • Count 0-20 - forwards and backwards
  • Practising writing the numbers 0-20 correctly
  • Practise putting numbers in order
  • Focus on number 14 - write number 14
  • Find and circle number 14 in a mixture of numbers
Show 14 by drawing 14 objects - for example draw 14 girls, count the girls and write number 14 beside it, draw 14 flowers, count and write number 14 beside it, do this 5 times (your child can pick objects they what to draw - girls and flowers are just my examples).


  1. Innovate (change) the story ‘The Enormous Turnip’. Pick one thing to change about the story. You might want to change one of the characters or the vegetable! E.g. ‘The Enormous Carrot!’ Fold a piece of paper to make a book.
  2. Can you draw/write your own version of the story? Are you in the story? What vegetable are you trying to pull? Who is in your story? What do the characters do? What do the characters say?




This week we will be learning about 2D shapes.

Words to learn:

2D shape, flat, corner, sides, straight, curved

triangle, square, rectangle, circle, pentagon and hexagon.


  1. Go on a 2D shape hunt inside or outside if possible. Can you find the shape in your bedroom? In the kitchen? In the bathroom?
  2. Make a tally chart and count how many of each shape you can find.
    What is the shape called? How do you know? Can you count how many sides each shape has? Can you count how many corners each shape has? Are the sides flat or curved?
