Week 2


Phonics: this week we are looking at the sounds 'th'. Activities for this sound along with our other sounds we have already taught can be found on Purple Mash and matching phonics books are on Bug Club. Also try to write words beginning with this sound on your whiteboards and put them into sentences.

HFW: this week's words are come and for. Practise writing these words each day. Can you think of a sentence that uses the words? For example: Can I come for dinner?. Now write the sentence sounding out the words you don't know.

Writing: draw your favourite part from Jack and the Beanstalk. Can you write a sentence to match the picture. Get an adult to help you with the words you can't spell. Remember CAPITAL LETTERS, SPACES AND FULL STOPS! In Purple Maash you will a task where you have to choose a character and write a description for him. Click on the link below and see mine!!

Alien Character Description


This week in Numeracy we are looking at ways of making the numbers 10-20 along with addition and subtraction to 10/15/30. Its important that your child becomes very familiar with these numbers, and activities should be very practical. Some examples are below.


  • 12+4; put finger on 12 and then do 4 jumps, what did you land on? Parents a lot of practise jumping forwards for adding and backwards for subtracting is needed here. Practise every day!
  • Clap count in 2's to 20, in 5's to 50 and in 10's to 100.
  • Count forwards and backwards from different numbers, e.g. 12-18.
  • Get out your number line or hundred square and get an adult to ask you about the numbers. Can you find 9? Can you find 1 more than 15? What number comes before 23?
  • Write different numbers on your whiteboard. Check to make sure they are the right way round.  
  • Can you write the numbers between 7 and 15?
