Hope you are all keeping well and safe!
Challenge of the day!
Put these pictures in the right order?
Please note that we will be recapping Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonics for the first part of this term. I will try to do this in different ways using Twinkl and the good old internet!! If your child is confident with reading the sounds in these words then please help them to write them using correct letter formation! This will be the beginnings of them learning to spell!
There is also a writing task at the end of the phonics lesson. I am very conscious that we must keep going with our writing and forming our letters correctly. If your child does the writing task easily encourage them to write another sentence.
I would love to see your efforts on Tapestry.
This icon will help your child to remember what to do when they are writing a sentence.

You say this sentence and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words and sound out each word.
The moon is bright.
Challenge 1 - if your child can write this sentence easily add in some describing words e.g. The round moon is shining bright.
Challenge 2 - Can they write another sentence about the moon?
I can say the next number when counting in order
o Ask your child to start counting up to twenty slowly and clearly.
o Stop them by clapping once.
o They must whisper the number they would be saying next. Are they correct?
o Repeat this several times, stopping them at different points.
o Do as above but counting backwards from 20
o Or start at 40 and count forwards. Or start at 56… etc.
Number Line Game Instructions
I can say which number comes before or after a given number.
You need numbered cards 1 to 6, 1 to 12 or even 1 to 20 as appropriate for your child.
o Make a set of twelve numbered cards.
o Use an old cereal packet and cut out the cards.
o Write clear numerals on these, 1 to 12 or to 20
o Spread out the cards face down.
o Take turns to play the Number Line Game.
o Turn over a card. Say the number.
o Place it in the middle of the table face up, e.g. you place 6.
o Your partner turns over another card and says the numbers.
o IF this card goes next to the card face up in the middle, they can place it there, e.g. it is 5 which goes before 6, or 7 which goes after 6.
o IF this card does not go next to it, e.g. it’s 11, then your partner keeps it in her hand.
o Now you pick up another card. If it can go next to the card or cards on the table, you can place it there.
o If not, you keep it in your hand.
o Now your partner picks up another card. If this can join the line of cards in the middle, they can place it there. If not, they keep it in their hand.
o Before your turn, you check your hand to see if you have a card which can be placed face up next to the other cards in the middle. If you do, you place that card there before have your turn picking up a card. Your partner must do the same.
You and your partner are gradually building up a line of cards with the numbers in order in the middle of the table.
The winner is the person who completes the line by placing the last card. This will be either 1 or 12!
Have fun playing the game!
I can name and describe characters in a story.
It is so important to make sure that your child writes their letters correctly. Have a go at the curly caterpillar letters - they all start like 'c' and go anti-clockwise.
