Week beginning: Monday 8th June – Thursday 11th June


Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well. We don’t have long to go until the Summer holidays so keep doing what you can. Continue to keep the work manageable for you and your child and remember if you need to contact me about anything or even to just say hello and fill me in on all the lovely things you have been doing, my email address is I love to hear from you all! I would also love to see some of your Sport’s day photos from this Saturday! Also remember you were to be off school this Friday – so have a day off and enjoy yourselves!!


NEWCOMERS – continue to revise all initial sounds. Continue to work on CVC words. Continue to work on ‘Addition to 5’. See NEEWCOMERS folder in Home School Activities.



  • Weekend news/Creative writing – You may continue to write your weekly diary or try some of the creative writing ideas. Another idea could be to write a description of your obstacle course – if you made one in your garden for the Healthy Kidz Sport’s Day challenge.
  • Plurals – This week I have attached work for you to complete on ‘Plurals’ – when there is only one of something it is ‘singular’ and when there is more than one of something it is ‘plural’. Again there are lots of different rules but we are only introducing this to the children at this stage so I don’t expect them to remember them all. I have given you a powerpoint showing some of the rules for making words plural as well as some activity pages.  I have also attached a link to a game from the IXL website. See Home School Activities/Literacy/Plurals.
  • Linguistics & Spellings – (see Spelling lists and ‘Daily Phonics Suggestions’ in Home School Activities under Spellings) Last week for spellings!!

APPLES – This week will be the last week of spellings and phonics. We will continue to focus on mixed CVC words with lots of practice sounding out and blending the sounds. Continue to work through the CVC booklets at your own pace to help with sounding out, blending and writing CVC words. I have given you one extra activity this week – I spy and read. You may continue to play the games from the IXL website uploaded last week. (Attachments – in Home School Activities/Literacy/CVC words).

PEARS – This week will be the last week of spellings and phonics. We are continuing to revise over our sounds already covered earlier in the year. The sounds for this week are the oo (moon), ay (hay), er (her) and ar (park) sounds. The spellings will be a mix of all four sounds but for those who just wish to stick to 1 or 2 sounds I have given just the ‘oo’ and ‘aw’ sounds (PEARS 2). Do what is manageable!

1.Continue to use the powerpoint to recap on some of the sounds taught this year. There is also a spelling revision activity page for each sound (oo, ay, er, ar). If you wish, you can use the poem/story for each sound previously uploaded (see in each sound folder). Again, if you wish to just stick to one sound this week to revise that is perfectly fine. Do what best suits you and your family!

2.I have also attached a new link to a game on the IXL website.

Remember to try some of the suggested practical ideas with your phonics as well, i.e. paper square work for word building (see below). All linguistics work is in the ‘oo, ay, er, ar sound folder in ‘Home School Activities/Literacy’.

  • Reading – Well done to all of you who have been reading on MyOn – you have all been doing a super job! This will be the last week I will be assigning new books but you can continue to log on and select your own books to read if you wish as well as continuing to use OxfordOwl for Online reading resources.


  • APPLES – This week you can continue to work on in the Numbers to 20 booklet – you can complete pages 7-10. This involves counting sets within 20. Remember to use lots of practical sets for counting to help – you could use objects from around your home. Continue to use the games from the IXL website previously uploaded. See Home School Activities/Maths/Numbers to 20.
  • PEARS - If you have not completed the Subtraction booklet don’t worry – work at your own pace. This week I have uploaded some Number work which includes a revision of work covered earlier this year as well as extending number sequences to 100. See Numbers to 20 – booklet 2. Please work on at your own pace. This work is from now until the end of June. This week you may complete pages 23-25, which is a revision of before/after, larger/smaller numbers, ordering, 1 and 2 more/less, odd/even and ordinal numbers. I have attached a link for some games from the IXL website to help you (IXL Games 2). See Home School Activities/Maths/Numbers to 20.
  • APPLES and PEARS Capacity - See Home School Activities/Maths/Capacity. We have been looking at ‘Capacity’ for 2 weeks. Continue to work through the tasks and activities uploaded last week at your own pace. I have added two new IXL games to help you with the concept of Measures.
    In Capacity we compare by direct comparison as well as using non-standard units (spoonfuls, cup, jug etc). We don’t measure using litres or ml just yet but we can mention these terms to the children and get them to look at containers around their home for how much they hold. Vocabulary to encourage your child to use – full, empty, half full, more or less etc. Again practical experiences of filling containers with water or sand are important to help develop these concepts. Ask: Can you show me a container that is about half full? Some of the activities I have included encourage the children to consider which size of non-standard unit of capacity is best for filling or measuring the capacity of each item. Ask: Which unit do you think is best to use to fill the container? Why? Some of the activities require you to use certain containers (jug, egg cup etc) but use whatever you have that would be of similar size/capacity.
  • ActiveMaths – Continue to log in and play the maths games and activities that have been assigned to you on ActiveMaths. Enjoy!


We have completed our work on our topic ‘Animals in their Environment’. I hope you all have enjoyed learning about different animals and have remembered some of the facts and information. This week you could record some of the things you have learned about our topic. You may want to record yourself, write a list, draw pictures etc. You could also write 3 facts that you now know about the topic of Animals. I have added a general WAU booklet which includes work on Animals. You may work through this booklet for the remainder of the term at your own pace. It is good for recapping on animals and looking at the different groups of animals. Find attachments in Home School Activities/World Around Us.


PE – The Healthy Kidz Virtual Sports Day is this Saturday 13th June. This week is your chance to practice all the activities from the previous weeks and select your best/favourite activities. Even if you don’t want to submit your times to the Healthy Kidz app you can just have fun at home yourself with the activities. Get the whole family involved and have a great Sport’s day everyone. Remember to send me photos of your sport’s day so I can add them to our photo gallery for others to see.
