Week 5


Big Book: Goldilocks and The Three Bears

Phonics: this week we are looking at the sound 'ou'. 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 with this sound in them on your whiteboards and put them into sentences. E.g. sound, shout, cloud, count, loud.

HFW: this week's words are look and went. Practise writing these words each day. Can you think of a sentence that uses the words? For example: We went to look for the dog. Who went to look at our school? Now write the sentence sounding out the words you don't know.


Reading: Well done P2 best year group at reading in Foundation Stage! Remember to get on to Bug Club and read more books. You should be reading one book a day. Remember to click on the bugs in the book and answer the question. If you get it right the bug will fall asleep! Make them all fall asleep to close the book. Only closed books are counted!


Writing: draw something you did last week. Maybe it was playing in your garden, going out a walk, baking something. 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! Try to retell the story to an adult. Maybe you could take a photo of you with your picture and post it on Facebook or send it to your teacher’s email?


This week in Numeracy we are revising the number work we have completed in past weeks. We are also going to look at o’clock times, using money to buy items up to 20p and finding change from 10p.


Time: It’s important that your child gets lots of opportunity to look at the clock and the numbers on it. Show them how the hands move and which is the hour hand and which is the minute hand. Keep this very practical at the beginning ask them to show you times, then get them to be the teacher and ask you to show times.

Money: get one of each coin and ask your child to tell you how much it is. Talk to them about two 1p’s is the same as a 2p and so on. We have included activities on Purple Mash and other online links to support this.
