Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!


It is not too late to sign up for the Rising Stars reading scheme. This will give you a chance to access more appropriate reading books and it also comes with questions you can ask your child after reading the text together. Answering inference questions about a text is a very important skill and something that we do during our Guided reading sessions. Please make sure you sign up and register to have access to this great reading opportunity!

Keep reading, stay safe and have fun! 


 Challenge of the day!


How many different ways can you move on your own two feet. Have a go!


Daily Phonics lesson:

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.   Sing  ABC song -

     Sing vowel song (ask your child to teach it to you!)

      Practise reading the phonemes/digraphs/trigraphs in your Home Learning Book.


2.  Phase 4 Tricky words song -  


3.  Listen and match Phase 4 tricky words -



4.   Write this sentence. You read it out, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words!                                                               The  doll  was  in  the toy  box.

The  car  was  next  to  the  toy  box.

The  lego  was  inside  the  toy  box.


     Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter

       Leave finger spaces

              End your sentence with a full stop.

     Read your sentence


Well done! yes



I can use my feet as a non-standard measure.

I can count reliably.

I can predict and say if the number is more or less.



Yesterday you used different non-standard objects to measure your foot. Today I would like you to use your own feet to measure different distances. Show your child how to put one foot exactly in front of the other to count and measure a distance. Can you predict how many feet long the mat might be. Write down your prediction and then measure and count. How close were you?

How long is your sofa, your bed, the cupboard and the living room? 

Predict and check!


I can write a simple sentence


Alfie's Feet

Watch and listen to the story and note where Alfie likes to go on a walk. Discuss what you saw.

Now think about where you like to go on your favourite walk. What do you see on the walk. Discuss your ideas and write a simple sentence about what you see.

'When   I  walk   I   see...'

Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter

       Leave finger spaces

              End your sentence with a full stop.

     Read your sentence


Well done! yes



I can use different objects to make prints


Put your wellies or trainers on and stand in a tray of paint. Walk a trail along the wrong side of a  piece of wallpaper. Try another colour.

If you're feeling brave why not do prints of your foot!
