  3. Sound out each word for example: sh-ow-er
  4. Use your fingers to show how many sounds there are in a word
  5. Ask your child how many letters in each of the words listed above and any other words your child can think of – for example shower has 6 letters
  6. Ask your child how many sounds in each of the words listed above and any other words your child can think of – for example sh-ow-er has 3 sounds.

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.


Open the document below and practise reading simple sentences

Sound out each letter

Blend the sounds together and say the word

Read the whole sentence



  1. Re-tell to the story ‘Cinderella’.
  2. What happens in the story? What do the characters do? What do they say?
  3. Make a story mountain to show what happens in the story.
  4. Draw an outline of a mountain and draw the main parts of the story – the start, middle and end of the story.
  5. Your pictures don’t have to be the same as mine but they may give you some ideas.
  6. Or you can sequence the story with pictures.


 Remember to use your fingers when sounding out your words, finger space between each word and full stop at the end of the sentence.


Parents – can write tricky words and you can copy them or you can try really hard and sound out every word by yourself!



This week we will be learning about addition.

  • Star words you will need: add, addition, is equal to, equation, number, object, number bond, ten frame, part, whole, part-part-whole model
  1. Listen to the video about the part-part-whole model.
  2. Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. pens, toys.
  3. Put the 20 objects into the whole section. 20 is the whole.
  4. Separate your 20 objects into the two parts. How many objects are in each part? Count each part.
  5. What is the whole? Count the whole (how many objects there are altogether).
  6. You could write the numbers down.
  7. How many ways can you make 20? E.g. 15 objects in one group and 5 objects in the other group.
  8. Say it in a full sentence e.g. “I have 15 objects in this part and 5 objects in this part. The whole is 20. 15 and 5 makes 20. 15 add 5 is equal to 20.”
    Key questions: Can you show how to make 20 using a part-part-whole model? How many different ways can you make 20? Can you say the equation in a full sentence?

Addition: part-part-whole model
