Session 1 - Phonics - Practice makes Perfect!


Use the phase 2 phoneme cards we sent home in term 2 or write these sounds onto small squares of paper: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, l, ll, f, ff, ss  and phase 3 j, v, w, x, y. Now add z and zz.


Watch the video on Tapestry and join in with all the phonemes.  Let’s segment and blend some more cvc words.


Session 2 – English


Watch the video clip of Miss Chamberlain reading a little more of Owl Babies. Prediction time: What do you think will happen next in the story?


Activity: Draw a picture of what you think happens next. Now write a sentence for your picture. Remember to use your phonics to help with your writing.


Session 3 -  Maths - Days of the week

Days of the week - Adam's Family (Dr. Jean) - YouTube

Listen to the days of the week song again or watch the video of Mrs Leigh reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar again. That caterpillar was a very hungry caterpillar! Do you like any of the food he ate?



What did the caterpillar eat each day of the week?  Can you draw what he ate each day and record the number too?


Session 4- RE

Watch the video clip of Mrs Holmes reading a story from the Bible, Jesus Chooses His Disciples.

Activity: Draw a picture of Jesus and his 12 friends, the disciples. Can you remember the names of any of his friends? Or draw a picture of you and your friends, add the names of your friends to your picture.


Extra fun!

The Hungry Caterpillar ate a lot! What is your favourite food? Draw a picture of your favourite food. Now label it


Challenge: Can you write a sentence?


Letter Formation

Practice forming the letters l, i, t, r, n, m and h. Remember every lowercase letter starts at the bottom. Mrs Holmes has to say how she forms each letter out loud and she has to really concentrate when practicing cursive letter formations.


Story time

Today’s story is from the Bible, Jesus Chooses His Disciples and read by Mrs Holmes. Don’t forget to make a list or take a photo of all the stories you read together with Mummy or Daddy. How many stories can you share?
