Week beginning 7/6/20

Good morning to you all. I hope that everyone is well.

Firstly, I want to reassure the parents that are still home learning that I will be putting the weekly planning onto the website each Sunday  and that I will be looking on Tapestry daily to see what you have been doing or answer any questions you have. I fully support individual parents’ decisions, whatever they are, at this uncertain time and will do my best to help you with your child’s learning in any way I can.

This week we will be continuing our theme of ‘Under the Sea’ by using the story ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson (you can find it being read on You Tube). There are lots of resources that you could use on the Twinkl website:


I would also really recommend the Twinkl Learning Hub as they are also doing the ‘under the sea’ theme and have great on-line lessons and stories.



Phonics- This week could you remind the children of all the phase 2 and 3 sounds, perhaps using a set of flashcards or one of the letters and sounds games found on www.letters-and-sounds.com/ . I am again taking the sounds that Twink Learning Hub are using; they are:

Mon-ur (as in fur) Tue-ow( as in cow) Wed-oi( as in coin) Thur-ear(as in hear) Fri- recap all 4 sounds

These are the tricky words that you could go over (read first, then begin to learn to spell):

Set 1 – I, no, go, the, into

Set 2- he, she, we, me, be, was, you, they, all, are, my, by, her, have, so, come, some, when, went, what, with, one

Letter Formation- c, o, a, d. (remember to watch your child is forming the letters correctly and correct any bad habits)

Reading Again, just to remind you of the great resources on Collins Big Cat or Oxford Owl (info on how to access these given last week).

Writing The story writing frames for ‘Sharing a Shell’ on Twinkl are great as there are black and white pictures they could colour and write about.  You could do a few of those each week. There is also a book review that you could do together with your child or use your green books to pick your favourite picture and write about it.



Maths If you can access the Twinkl Learning Hub then Numberblocks is on from 11-12am each day. If not, and you want a little more structure then perhaps you could timetable the maths like this:

Mon- Number- counting, recognising, ordering, writing numbers

Tue- More/less 1 more/less

Wed- Addition/subtraction

Thur/Fri- Halves/ doubles/problem solving and size https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-n-2545136-eyfs-maths-solving-problems-and-talking-about-size-home-learning-challenges

Number formation-0,6,9,8 (to link with letter formation )


Other activities-Just a few ideas but playing with siblings, going outside, doing some art or just chatting are all fine.



Take care and keep safe.
