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. Draw and colour an angry Colour Monster.
  2. Which colour are you going to use?
  3. Draw things that might make the Colour Monster feel angry.
  4. What makes you feel cross? Add these things to your picture.
  5. Can you label your drawings?
  6. What can you do when you feel angry? You could take some time to think and talk to someone about how you feel.
  7. Listen to the story ‘In My Heart: A Book of Feelings’ by Jo Witek. Which feelings do you recognise from ‘The Colour Monster’?

 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.


This week we will be learning about subtraction.

  • Star words you will need: take away, subtract, subtraction, is equal to, equation, number, object, 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. Put the 20 objects into the whole section. 20 is the whole.
  3. Choose a number between 0 -20 to take away.
  4. Put that many objects into the first part. How many objects are left?
  5. Move these objects into the second part. What is the whole?
  6. Count the whole (how many objects there were altogether at the start).
  7. How many objects are in each part? Count each part.
  8. You could write the numbers down. E.g. 20 objects to start. Take away 5 (first part) and 15 are left (second part).
  9. Say it in a full sentence e.g. “I started with 20 objects. 20 is the whole. There are 5 objects in the first part and there are 15 objects in the second part. I took away 5 objects and there are 15 objects left. 20 subtract 5 is equal to 15.”
  10. Repeat this for a variety of numbers.
    Key questions: Can you show subtraction from 20 using a part-part-whole model? How many different numbers can you subtract from 20? Can you say the equation in a full sentence?

Subtraction: part-part-whole model
