We will be revising all of set 3 this term – a sound a day.

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

SOUND to practise today: ear 

ear – hear with your ear


  1. Practise writing words with ear in them - for example: hear, ear, dear, fear, near, year …
  2. Can you think of anymore words with ear in them?
  3. Sound out each word for example: h- ear
  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 hear has 4 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 h-ear has 2 sounds.

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.





  1. Read and or listen to the story: “Little Red Riding Hood”.
  2. Re-tell to the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’.
  3. What happens in the story? What do the characters do? What do they say?
  4. Make a story map to show what happens in the story. Use arrows to show the next part in the story.
  5. Your pictures don’t have to be the same as mine but they may give you some ideas.
  6. Remember that you can repeat the pictures for repeated refrains. Can you label your pictures?
  7. Remember to use your fingers when sounding out your words.
  8. I will also upload a document with pictures to sequence the story.



This week we will be learning about counting and ordering numbers.

  • Star words you will need: count, order, numbers, numeral (written number), quantity, amount, object, number line, number square
  1. Cut paper to create number cards.
  2. Write a numeral from 0-20 on each card.
  3. Use the number formation mat to help you write your numerals.
  4. Mix up your number cards.
  5. Put them in order from 0-20.
  6. Pick a card.
  7. Count out that many objects.
  8. Repeat this for a variety of numbers. Please keep the cards for the weeks learning.


If you do not have access to 20 object I have uploaded worksheet with objects and numbers to match - if you can print or make something similar.

Key questions: Can you order the number cards? Can you say how many objects you have in a full sentence? Can you write the numeral?


Fine motor finger gym activity:

Paint dots with your finger or a cotton bud.

Open documents below - you can print or make something similar.

•      Encourage our child to complete the patterns on the caterpillars, using the cotton buds/finger to dab paint onto the bodies. Prompt your child to repeat the same pattern along the length of the caterpillar. Help them to talk through the pattern as they work, e.g. ‘Red, blue, red, blue.’

•      Children may also like to make up their own patterns on the blank caterpillars. Encourage your child to repeat the same pattern along the length of the caterpillar.

•      Help your child to make precise dabs using the cotton bud/finger by prompting them to hold the cotton bud in a tripod grip, if they are ready to do so. Allow your child to experiment with their grip of the cotton bud/different finger.

•      After using the caterpillars, you could extend your child by working on the butterfly images. Can your child use the cottons buds to dab a symmetrical pattern? Ask your child to talk about what is special about the butterfly and see if they can explain symmetry in their own words.

Daily Task
