  1. Practise writing words with the sound in them - for example: chew, stew, few, fewer, view, blew, new, grew…
  2. Can you think of anymore words with ew in them?
  3. Sound out each word for example: ch - ew
  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 chew has 4 letters

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.


Open the document below and practise reading simple sentences



  1. Choose and draw a character/s from the story Cinderella
  2. Think of adjectives (describing words) to describe them e.g. kind, nice, handsome. Can you label (write the words beside the character) your character with these words.
  3. Think of words to describe the person and clothes, for example pretty blue sparkly dress, long curly brown hair, golden buttons...
  4. Remember to use your fingers to sound out the words, use finger space between each word, write on the line and use a full stop at the end of the sentence.



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. Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. pens, toys. 20 is the whole (how many there are altogether).
  2. Separate your 20 objects into two groups. These two groups are called parts. How many objects are in each part? Count each part.
  3. What is the whole? Count the whole (how many objects there are altogether). You could write the numbers down.
  4. How many ways can you make 20? E.g. 12 objects in one group and 8 objects in the other group.
  5. Say it in a full sentence e.g. “I have 12 objects in this part and 8 objects in this part. 12 and 8 makes 20. 12 add 8 is equal to 20.”
  6. Can you write it as an equation? E.g. “12 + 8 = 20”.


Key questions: Can you show number bonds to 20 using objects? How many different ways can you make 20? Can you say the equation in a full sentence? Can you write an equation?


Topic: Friends


We are coming to an end of the topic ‘Friends’. From this topic we have discussed:

  • how we can make good friends
  • that Jesus had good friends and
  • what Jesus tells us about friendship


Start this RE lesson with a moment of quiet reflection, maybe sit beside a lit candle or some instrumental music.


Ask your child if there is anything they wonder about

  • How friends make us feel happy, comfortable and glad.
  • What breaks and mends friendships.
  • How Jesus is our friend.


Remind your child that:

  • It is good to have friends.
  • What Jesus tells us about being friends.
  • Jesus’ new rule for friends.
  • How we can change and say sorry and forgive each other.





  1. How can I show friendship or forgiveness to someone today?
  2. Think of some ideas or each heading: Ways I can be a friend and ways I can forgive someone
  3. You can write these ideas or just talk about them with an adult.




  1. Parents ask your child: What is the most important thing Jesus tells us about being friends?
  2. Let your child give their ideas.
  3. Tell them Jesus said we must love one another.
  4. Draw a picture of people – friends, family, people you know/don’t know, people you see outside – a range of people – and write ‘Love one another’ somewhere on your drawing.


Daily Task

Make an invitation to the ‘Prince’s Ball’ to let everyone know that they are invited. Draw the palace on one side.

Write key information about the ball on the other side. When is the ball? Where is the ball? Who is invited?
