Argh me Hearties below is link to a pirate game on BBC bitesize. To be a good pirate you need to be able to read maps, learn about the weather and follow directions? Are you brave enough?




We are moving onto the story of 6.  Below is a link to the box number game we played last week.  It can played again with 5 cubes to help revise ways to make 5.  It can also be used using 6 objects to help introduce ways to make 6.

making five game

This game is a great way to revise number facts to 5.

Ways to make 6...

In the pack there are activities to find ways to make 6.

Below is a link to video showing ways to find 6. 

Using objects or cubes set out 6.

Ask your child to find what two amounts can make six. 


Answers they will find are:

0 and 6 make 6

6 and 0 make 6

1 and 5 make 6

5 and 1 make 6

2 and 4 make 6

4 and 2 make 6

3 and 3 make 6

Ordinal Number:

We use numbers to describe what order things come in.  1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.


This time of year is normally when we would be practising for sports day in school.  We are very sad to be missing it this year. 


We have put an activity page linked to sports day.  Your child has to colour who comes 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

Below is a great link to BBC Bitesize which describes this well.  There is also a game in the link too.


Story Introduction:

Watch this story and read along with our book, The Troll.

The Troll, read by Hywel

The Troll by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by David Roberts, read by Hywel

After reading The Troll ask some questions:

  • What’s your favourite dinner to eat?
  • If you were going to bury some treasure where would you bury it?
  • What would be in your treasure box?
  • Which of the pirates was your favourite and why?




Our sound this week is ‘ch.’ It’s the first sound we have learned that is made up of TWO letters!! (The fancy term for this is a digraph). When we put c and h together they join up and make one sound, different from the two sounds they would make separately.


Take a look at the words below and see if you can sound them out using the ch sound:

ch i p

ch a t

ch i n

Take a look at the video below to lean more about our ch sound:

'ch' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

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

Complete the 'ch' worksheets in our Learning Packs, week 9.

HFW exercise:

This week our words are me, see & day. To complete your rocket cut the words out from the table and stick under the correct word on the rocket.


Why not try a word hunt this week! Get your grown up to hide five or six words in your bedroom and then you have to find them! You get a sweet for every word you can read by yourself! (It’s a good idea to practise them before you hide them – we want our children’s confidence to grow as they learn).


If you get finished why not try clicking on your link below to revise some of you CVC words. You can pick your middle vowel – sound out your words as you go!

Pirate Labelling:

This week we have a pirate labelling activity to complete. The words you need are in at the bottom of the page.


Do any of these characters look like the pirates from our story this week?


If you get finished quickly you could practise your syllable clap – how many syllables are in a word? Take a look at the pictures below – as you say a word, clap for teach syllable. For example:

Oct   –   o   –   pus



Use the worksheet from your Essential Work Pack (Week 8) to cut and stick the sentence,”  ‘Come with me.’ said mum. “


Some clues to help you with this are:

  • Which word has a capital letter? (This one comes first).
  • Which word has a full stop after it? (This word comes at the end).
  • Use your initial sounds to help you sound out the words.

If you get this done why not see how far you can walk in a perfectly straight line, like you were walking the plank. No wobbling allowed! Remember if you fall over the crocodile will get you! Can you measure how far you can walk?
