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. Re-tell/ or re-read the story Hansel and Gretel.
  2. What happens in the story? What do the characters do? What do they say?
  3. Choose and draw a character from the story Hansel and Gretel.
  4. What does the character say?
  5. Can you draw a speech bubble?
  6. Write sentences to show what the character said. This can be exact words from the story or you can use your imagination and write what you think the character might say!
  7. You can do one character or more than one character.


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 doubling.

  • Star words you will need: double, doubling, twice, two times, adding, repeated addition, equal amounts, equal groups, number, amount, ten frame


  1. Doubling means adding equal amounts.
  2. This is a type of addition called repeated addition where you add the same amount.
  3. You count how many objects you have and add the same amount.
  4. Draw/print a butterfly with a line down the middle.
  5. Choose a number between 1-10.
  6. Draw that many dots on the left side of the butterfly.
  7. Double your dots by putting the same amount of dots on the right side of the butterfly.
  8. Count all the dots to work out the double. Say it in full sentences. E.g. “Double 7. 7 dots on the left side of the butterfly. 7 dots on the right side of the butterfly. There are 14 dots altogether. Double 7 is equal to 14.”
  9. Repeat this for a variety of numbers.
  10. Challenge: Can you write it as an equation? E.g. 5 + 5 = 10.


Key questions: Can you double an amount? How many dots are on the left side of the butterfly? How many dots are on the right side of the butterfly? How many dots are there altogether? Can you say it in a full sentence?


Topic: Our World

God created the world. Look at the picture and talk about what you can see in the picture.

God said “Indeed it is very good!”

Ask your child:

  1. What is good?
  2. Why do you think God said this?
  3. Why do you think the world is very good?
  4. What could we do to make it even better?


Look at the next picture.


Ask your child:

  1. It says “Everyone shares God’s world”. Can you tell me what this means?
  2. What could we do to help each other to share God’s world?

Get 2 pieces of fruit or biscuits. Ask your child to share it equally with you or a sibling so that they both have the same.


Ask your child:

  1. What would have happened if you or sibling had/ate both pieces of fruit or biscuit?
  2. How did you make it fair?
  3. Why do you think it is important to share and be fair?




  1. Can you think of a time when you shared something?
  2. Draw a picture of what you shared and who with.
  3. Write a sentence to explain what you did.


Daily Task

Where is your favourite place? Explain why you like it.
