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. Choose and draw a character from the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’- Little Red Riding Hood or the Big Bad Wolf.
  2. What does the character say?
  3. Can you draw a speech bubble?
  4. Write sentences to show what the character might be saying e.g. “Why grandma, what big ears you have. What big arms you have.”
    This can be exact words from the story or you can use your imagination and write what you think the character might say!
  5. You can do one character or more than one character.
  6. 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 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 quantity cards - like the shape of a playing card.
  2. Draw a quantity from 0-20 on each card e.g. you could draw dots, flowers or dinosaurs.
  3. Mix up your quantity cards.
  4. Put them in order from 0-20.
  5. Match the number and quantity cards.
  6. Pick a set of cards. Count out that many objects.
  7. Repeat this for a variety of numbers. Please keep the cards for the weeks learning. You could use the cards to play snap!
    Key questions: Can you order the quantity cards? Can you match the number and quantity cards?

Daily Task

Topic: Friends


Jesus had friends, we can be friends of Jesus.


  1. Create a place in your home were you can be quiet and still and reflect.  
  2. Provide time for the children to share the joys and challenges of being a friend. 
  3. Scribe the children’s responses to the joys and challenges of friendship and discuss ways on how we can share the joys of being friends and kind to everyone and how to overcome the challenges of friendship.
  4. During prayer times this week, invite the children to talk to Jesus, their friend, in their own words.


Look at the image of Jesus and his friends 

Based on Mark 6:7, 30-32.  


Tell the story using the picture to discover what Jesus and his friends did together.  Encourage the children to act out sections of the story.

Adults please ask your child the following key questions:

Children to answer in full sentences:

  1. How do we know they are friends?
  2. What does the picture tell us about friends?
  3. What did Jesus and his friends do? (They worked, told people the Good News of God’s love for everyone, answered questions.)
  4. Where did they go when they were tired?
  5. What did they do together? (eat, shared experiences, rested)
  6. Where do you go when you are tired?
  7. Who do you talk to about your experiences of the day?  e.g. what has gone well/what has not.
  8. Where do you go to be quiet and still?




  1. Draw a picture of your friend, put friendship words (e.g. loving, kind, caring, sharing etc), around your picture and talk about what you like about your friend and what you do together.
  2. Write a letter/prayer to Jesus asking him to help them be a good friend.
  3. Continue to be a good friend to everyone!
