Morning Prayer – Hail Mary – The Saint of our School

All the sounds for reception have been covered.

I would advise you practise the sounds every day.

In year 1 the children have more sounds to learn.

If the children know the reception sounds really well it will take some pressure of the children when they are learning more new sounds.



Practise saying the sounds everyday with your child.

  • Can you think of a word that begins with each letter of the alphabet? (Set 1 sounds)
  • Sound out the word
  • Make a list of the words
  1. Write about what you did over the weekend and draw a picture beside it.
  2. Using your phonics to sound out each word. Spelling words phonetically is still correct!





  1. Read and or listen to the story: “The Little Red Hen”. We will be doing work this week based on the story.
  2. Parents please explain and words your children do not know or understand.
  3. You could also read the story in your home language.
  4. Re-tell the story in full sentences. Who is in the story? Where does the story take place? What happens at the start, middle and end of the story?
  5. Make your own puppets/face masks to help to retell or act out the story. Or if you have access to a printer you can print out the puppets/face masks I have uploaded for you.


The Little Red Hen read aloud

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.




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
  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 of the pizza for an example.
  6. Get a slice of bread or use the picture below.
  7. Can you cut the bread in half?
  8. Can you cut the bread into two equal parts?
  9. What does halving mean? Explain what you are doing in full sentences. E.g. “I have a slice of bread. This is the whole. I cut the bread in half. Now I have two equal parts. Two parts make the whole.”
    Key questions: Can you cut the bread in half? Can you cut the bread into two equal parts? Where do you need to cut it? Is there another way you could cut it? What is halving?


Make a hen using paint or draw around your hand and colour it.
