Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!

It has been great to see lots of you doing the Challenge of the day. Today's challenge links with the story 'Alfie's Feet' story.

 Challenge of the day!



Ask an adult to show you how to tie a shoelace. Hopefully someone will have a pair of trainers with laces!

Daily Phonics lesson:
It is great that you are keeping going with the Daily Phonics lesson. It is so important that you don't forget the 45 phonemes that you have learnt and that you remember all the Phase 2, 3 and 5 Tricky Words. 

Please remember that if you feel that your child needs more practise at Phase 3/4 please revisit our previous lessons and also use your child's Home Learning Book to consolidate prior learning. I am glad to hear that some parents are consolidating Phase 3 and 4 phonics.


We have looked at the first set of Phase 5 phonics and for the rest of this term we will now be consolidating Phase 3/4/5 learning ready for Year 1.


Remember - Practise makes Better!!

1. Learning Letter Sounds | Version 2 | Alphabet Song for Kids | Phonics for Kids | Jack Hartmann

This phonics song teaches children the alphabet and the beginning letter sounds.

2.   Practise writing and spelling Phase 3 tricky words -

he, she, we, me, be was, my,  you,  her,  they,  all, are, 


3.   Let's see if you can read the sentence and match the picture on Espresso -

 4.   You say this sentence, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Watch out for the tricky words -         You can eat the tart on the tray. 

You can put the plum in the bowl.

The  lemon is  yellow and  the apple is  red.


Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter

     Leave finger spaces

         End your sentence with a full stop.

      Read your sentence


           Well done! yes 

Mathematics -

I can measure using non-standard measure. 

Do you remember at the beginning of your year in Reception class when we drew around your foot and we found out who had the longest foot?

I would like you to do that again and this time use your own choice of objects to measure how long your foot is.


I can read a poem and discuss its meaning


Read the poem below and discuss what the shoes might look like and who might wear them. Which shoes would you wear? 


I am beginning to understand what the Muslim faith believes about creation.


Last week we looked at the Christian story of creation and how God created the earth. This week we will look at how the Muslim faith believes their god , Allah,  also created the earth and everything in it.


I can name and label a foot diagram

Its all about feet today! Label this diagram of a foot. You can cut and stick or write the correct word in the box. Or just talk about it! Have a look at your own foot while you're doing it!


It will not be long before your child will be in Year 1! One of the ways you can help with this transition is to help your child to form their letters correctly. It is very important that they are able to do this as when they are in Year 1 they will learn cursive writing where they write all letters starting from the line.

If we start concentrating on this now they will hopefully have no bad writing habits that they then have to put right!


To make it fun you could write with your finger in sand on a tray, paint/shaving foam on a flat surface, with a stick in mud, with chalks outside/on a board  etc!
