Please read with your child for 20 minutes each day. This could be a story book which you read, a phonics book which they read or a mixture of the two.
Oxford Owl have a library of free books which can be read on a phone or tablet.
Follow the link below and sign up yourself. You can then access a variety of books which are age-appropriate. Start on age 3-4 (Oxford Level 1) and work your way through as your child gets more confident.
Today we are going to be practising our sight words.
Write down the following sight words on separate pieces of paper and hold them up for your child to read like we do in our shared reading lessons. As your child is reading them, place them into two piles (words which they do recognise and words which they don't.)
Select the words that you child is not recognising and play a splat game where you give them a word to find as quickly as they can. Once they are confident, ask them to be the teacher and to call out words for you to find. It is often helpful for you to get some of these wrong and encourage your child to correct you.
After that, I have attached an editable colour by numbers document below. You can type in or write in the boxes the words which your child needs more work on and encourage them to read the words as they are colouring.
Our learnt sight words:

Today we are going to be adding using 10 frames.
Watch the video below and then complete one of the following activities.
Blue and green challenge: Write down the following addition questions and ask your child to use a 10 frame and blocks/counters/toys. Ask your child to write the answer for you.
Purple challenge: encourage your child to answer the following questions by counting on. Tell them to put the first number in their head and then put the second number up on their fingers. Tap their head for the first number and then count on with their fingers.
Today we are learning about The Daughter of Jairus.
This Bible Story is about faith and patience.
Watch the video below and then talk to your child about patience.
What is patience?
Why is patience important?
Can you think of a time when you have had to be patient?
Today we are going to be creating our own versions of We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
I have attached a video below of We're Going on a Lion Hunt.
Talk to your child about an animal that you could look for instead of a bear.
Then talk to your child about alternative things that they could come across instead of grass, snow, mud etc and where they might fins their animal instead of in a cage.
Write down all of their ideas as we will be roleplaying their alternative version of the story tomorrow.
