Story Introduction:

Watch this story and read along with our book, What the Ladybird Heard:

What the Ladybird Heard (Julia Donaldson) - Bedtime Story Read Aloud

READ ALOUD BOOKS FOR CHILDREN ~ Bedtime stories for kids - Tonight let's read: What the Ladybird Heard. (Julia Donaldson & Lydia Monks). A traditional read a...

If you haven’t realised by now then this week’s book confirms it – Primary 1 teachers really like Julia Donaldson books! This story is fantastic for sequencing – retelling a story in order. One your child has heard the book a few times why not ask them if they can tell it back to you – see if they get the events in the right order.



This week our sound is th – this can be a tricky sound for our pupils to get as it involves them putting their tongue between their teeth. Don’t be afraid of showing them how to do this and pronounce the sound.


  • Complete the th worksheets in week 11 of our Learning Pack.
Watch this video below and see if you can sound out the words:

'th' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

Let's sound out some 'th' words! If you want your children to sound out by themselves, simply mute the video. 🚨 SUBSCRIBE

Phonics revision:

Our revision worksheet this week focuses on the sounds g, o, u, l, f & b.

Cut the pictures out from the bottom of the page and stick them under their matching sound.

Listen to our Jolly Phonics song in the link below:

Jolly Phonics Phase Two

children good

How many sounds does your child know now? Why not take a few minutes today to show them a sound and ask if they know it? Try not to give any prompts or clues – it’s always good to know what your child already knows and what sounds they need a bit more work on.


If you get this done we’d really love to know –could you email your child’s teacher with the results?

Rhyme Time:

On the worksheet below there are 6 words and we would like you to find some words that rhyme with those words. (A good tip for this exercise is to try changing the first letter of the word).


For example:






Ask your child to write the rhyming words in –this is a good opportunity to focus on pencil grip, letter formation and CVC words. Enjoy.

High Frequency Words:

This week our High Frequency Words are ‘can, with & hear.’

Complete the High Frequency Word rocket in week 11 of your Learning Pack.


Why not take the chance while your child is completing this activity to ask them what the ladybird could hear on the farm?

Is there anything they can hear while they are working with you?


Our story this week has been ‘What a Ladybird Heard.’


In this activity we would like you to firstly, draw a picture of your favourite part of the story. Use this as an opportunity to help retell the story verbally with your child. Secondly, ask your child to write a sentence about something they can hear, this links in with our High Frequency Words for the week.


Don’t forget about your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.


Remember to read your Bug Club books allocated by your class teacher.

Mrs Neeson is holding a very special reading competition!
