Hello everyone!


Hope you are all well.

Did you enjoy your dinosaur work out yesterday, stomping around like your favourite dinosaur?

Challenge of the day!



Find some things that are your favourite colour.


We are continuing with Phase 4 of our Phonics learning.

If your child can recognise most of all the Phase 2/3 sounds and read the Phase 2 and 3 tricky words then they are ready for Phase 4.

If you feel that your child still needs more practise with Phase2/3 please re-visit the previous weeks learning and try some other games on the suggested websites on our front class page.

The Vowel Song: Long and Short Vowel Sounds | English Songs | Scratch Garden

A quick recap of the five vowels of the alphabet - remember the other letters are called consonants.

Act Out The Alphabet | Jack Hartmann

Act Out the Alphabet is a fun kinesthetic letter sounds song. It's one of my favorites because it engages children in creative active movement.

Let's see what Kit and Sam are going to learn us about initial consonant blends.

You say this sentence and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words and sound out each word.


The  wheel  can  spin.


Challenge 1 - if your child can write this sentence easily add in some describing words e.g. The big wheel can spin.

Challenge 2 - Can they write another sentence about the wheel?


I can say and record 1 more and 1 less than a given number.

Challenge - Can you use bigger numbers and draw your own

1 more and 1 less picture like the one above?

I can recognise and form 'teen' numbers.


Make sure your child is saying 'teen' at the end of these numbers and not 'ty'!!

Teen Numbers | Numbers in the Teens

Teen Numbers In the Air will help students write and form numerals for the teen numbers 11-19.
Follow me as I form the teen numbers by writing out the numerals for each teen number. Students can form the teen number numerals in the air while following my movements.
This teen number video reinforces kinasthetic, auditory and visual learning as students actively learn to recognize and write teen numbers.


I can use my phonics to read simple sentences.

Use your phonics to read this book about dinosaurs.

Pause the page if you need a bit more time to sound out the words.

The red words are tricky words,  the sound buttons help you to sound out phonemes and a line shows a digraph/trigraph.

Happy reading!

Read again...and again!!!

I can make observations of animals and talk about change.
