Let the learning begin….


What day is it?

What month is it?

What date is it?

What is the weather like?

Practise saying the sounds everyday with your child

Set 1

a b c d e f g h I j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x w z sh ng nk th ch

Set 2

ay ee igh ow oo 00 ar or air ir ou oy

Set 3

ire ear ure ea aw are ur ow oi ai oa ew er


SOUND to learn today: oo


oo = poo at the zoo


So let’s look at this sound in more detail.


  1. Practise writing words with ay in them - for example: moon, zoo, food, pool, tool, spoon…
  2. Sound out each word for example: f-oo-d
  3. Use your fingers to show how many sounds there are in a word (please note there maybe less sounds than number of letters)
  4. Ask your child how many letters in the word – for example food has 4 letters
  5. Ask your child how many sounds in the word – for example food has 3 sounds


'oo' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3


  • Count 0-20 - forwards and backwards
  • Practising writing the numbers 0-20 correctly
  • Practise putting numbers in order
    We have now covered writing and recognising numbers 1-20
    Let’s practise one more - What is one more than a given number?
    Ask your child:
    What is one more than 1?
    What is one more than 2?
    What is one more than 3?
    What is one more than 4?
    What is one more than 5?
    What is one more than 6?
    What is one more than 7?
    What is one more than 8?
    What is one more than 9?
    What is one more than 10?
    Your child should answer in a full sentence: one more than 1 is 2, one more than 2 is 3…
    You can use a number line and your child can point at 1 then jump 1 more to land at 2 to give them the answer!


Challenge: what is 2 more than a given number?



  1. Re-listen to the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. Listen out for any ‘repeated refrains’ (phrases said again and again). Did you act out the story yesterday?
  2. Can you make a list of who you would go on a bear hunt with?
  3. Can you make a list of things you would bring on a bear hunt? (Water, biscuits, apple, binoculars, raincoat, map…. )

  4. Can you explore capacity in your home? Parents can you help your child use water in your bath/sink/plastic box. Pour liquid into containers e.g. a cup. Can you show a nearly empty, half full and nearly full container?
  5. If you have two containers – parents can you fill 2 containers and ask which is more full? Which is less full?
    Key questions: How would you describe the containers capacity? Is your container nearly empty, half full or nearly full? How do you know?

Capacity: nearly empty, half full, nearly full
