Let us take this time to be GRATEFUL for all the things we have. I know everyone is going through a hard time. Let us try to focus on the wonderful things we have.

Please be with me all day long, in every story, game, and song. May all the happy things we do, make you our Father happy to.

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

 a_e   i_e    o_e    u_e



  • Set 2
  • Can you think of a word that has the sound in it? Think of a word for each sound. For example: ay – play
                    ee – tree
                    igh - light
  • Sound out the word
  • Make a list of the words
    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.

  1. Re-tell to the story ‘The Little Red Hen’.
  2. What happens in the story? What do the characters do? What do they say?
  3. Make a story map 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.


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

Understanding the World

Put one of the following: flour/rice/sand/sugar into a baking tray. (or whatever you have at home)
