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 learning the new sound 'h'. 


Watch the lesson video attached and then practise writing the new sound on lines (either lined paper or lines you've drawn yourself if they need a bit more space). It may be helpful to model writing the sound to your child first and then write a few in a yellow or orange felt tip for them to trace over. Then encourage them to practise writing the sound 10 times independently.


Blue challenge: practise orally segmenting these words. Say the word three times together and then ask your child to robot it. If they find this a challenge, I recommend that you then segment it and get them to copy you. It may be beneficial to repeat this a few times.










Green challenge: encourage your child to segment the sounds in these words and then write the words on a lined piece of paper.











Purple challenge: write three of the above words and then write the following sentences.


The hen is in the hut.

I can hop on the red mat.

Today we are working on sharing amounts.


Watch the activity video below and then replicate the activity with your child.


Blue and green challenge: find which amounts from 1-6 can be shared nicely between two and three groups. Ask your child what they think they should do if they cannot be shared equally and record their answers on Tapestry. It may be helpful to put this in a real context like pieces of fruit or sweets.


Purple challenge: complete the activity above with amounts up to 10 and beyond, depending on the confidence of your child.


EYFS Sharing Activity



Today we are using our adjective word from yesterday to write a Wanted Poster for Goldilocks.


Goldilocks really made a mess of the Three Bears' house and then completely disappeared. They are trying to find her so that they can tell her how that made them feel and she can apologise for her actions. A poster with a picture and description would help them to find her because then other people could keep their eye out for them.


I have attached a template document below for your child to complete. Ask them to draw a picture of Goldilocks in the the space provided and then write a description using the adjectives which you generated to describe her yesterday.


Blue challenge: ask your child to provide examples and then segment the words (e.g. yellow hair: y-e-l-o    h-e). Write down exactly what they say and then ask them to copy the words onto the template.


Green challenge: segment bullet points together and ask your child to write the sounds that they hear on the lines.



  • yellow hair (y-e-l-o    h-e    would be phonetically correct)
  • happy face (h-a-p-e   f-a-s would be phonetically correct)


Purple challenge: write sentences to describe Goldilocks.



She has yelo he. (Phonetically acceptable for 'she has yellow hair')

She is hape. (Phonetically acceptable for 'she is happy')
