You should also practise saying each sound from set 1, 2 and 3 every day.

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.
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 counting and ordering numbers.
Key questions: Can you make a number square? What do you notice about the numbers? Can you say how many objects you have in a full sentence? Can you put the objects in a line? Can you say one number for each object that you touch? Can you extend your number square above 20?
Understanding the world
You can do science experiment 1 or 2 or both!
Have a read and see what suits you and your child:
Science Experiment 1
Briefly review the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. Ask your child what Little Red Riding Hood was doing in the woods – taking a basket of food to Grandma.
2. Tell your child that Little Red Riding Hood needs to make a strong basket to carry the food to Grandma.
3. Look at the basket and talk about the features, for example, it needs a handle, it needs to be able to hold the weight of some food and it needs to be large enough to carry some food.
4. Show your child the different materials and discuss what they are and how they could be used to make a basket.
5. Encourage your child to explore shaping and joining the materials to find which would be the best.
6. Once your child has created their baskets, encourage your child to test it by placing some of the food inside. Discuss the results and how to modify and adjust the baskets to improve them.
You will need:
A basket with a handle or something similar or a picture of one (no problem if you don’t have it)
A variety of different materials e.g. paper, card, tissue paper, lolly sticks, tinfoil, cling film, paper towel
Some food (real or role play)
Questions to ask your child:
Science Experiment 2
Briefly review the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. Ask your child what Little Red Riding Hood was wearing – a cape. What do they think it might be made from?
2. Tell your child that Little Red Riding Hood wants to go and visit her grandma again but it is raining. She needs a new cape that will keep her warm and dry. Can you help her to make a new cape by exploring the best materials to use?
3. Show your child the range of materials and discuss which would be best to use and why.
4. Encourage your child to test out their ideas by covering a doll or some object with their chosen material and sprinkling or spraying on some water.
5. Encourage your child to talk about their ideas, what worked and what did not work so well.
6. Also encourage your child to think about their own coats. What makes them waterproof? What does waterproof mean? What materials are used?
You will need:
A small toy doll or something similar
Some water in a small watering can or spray bottle
A plastic tray or something similar
A variety of different materials that you have a home e.g. wool, felt, tinfoil, plastic bag, paper towel, tissue paper. Use whatever you have at home.
Questions to ask your child:
How many types of weather can you name? Make a list of them.
Play a game of Eye Spy.
Open the document below for ideas and picutres.
I spy with my little eye something beginning with… (pick a sound)
Another week done! Well done children...and parents!
Have a lovely weekend
