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.

►Phonics

Today we are learning the 'ch' sound.

Please watch the lesson video and then practise forming the letters on lined paper or a white board.

Then complete one of the following activities.

Blue challenge: play Silly Soup. Provide your child with 6 letter cards of sounds which they aren't recognising and pictures or items which begin with those sounds. Ask your child to sort the pictures or items into piles which correspond with letter.

Once they have completed this task, segment the words for objects in the piles and ask your child to pass you that item. E.g. "Can you pass me the h-or-se?"

Green challenge: ask your child to sound out and write the following words.

chip

chin

chick

much

rich

such

chickens (chickins would be acceptable)

Purple challenge: ask your child to use their knowledge of sight words to write the following sentences.

The chip is on my chin.

The chick is in the pen.

A chicken is big and red.

►Maths

Today we are working on doubling and halving numbers up to 10.

Watch the Numberblocks video below and then complete one of the following activities.

Blue and Green challenge: use toys, objects or even fingers to recreate the doubles and halves questions from the video. Really reinforce the relationship between doubling and halving and repeat a few times until your child can see the relationship.

Purple challenge: complete the Blue and Green challenge and then ask your child to recite some doubles and halves. Can they also work out some numbers which would be difficult to halve?

►Topic

Today we are going to be following instructions to make Gingerbread People.

First, ask your child to use the design template to plan when they want their biscuits to look like.

Then, either follow the video or recipe cards below  to make the biscuits.

Encourage your child to complete much of this activity independently, which your support where necessary.

If you do not have a Gingerbread cookie cutter, you could mould the different body parts and stick them together.
