Morning routine

We always start our morning by talking about the date and weather. We sing the days of the week song and we discuss the date - what day was it yesterday, what day is it today...tomorrow?

If yesterday was the 2nd, what is today? What is one more than 2... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home.

There is a youtube link of the days of the week song and the months of the year song below. smiley

Days of the Week song

Months of the Year Song

Basic skills

1. Handwriting - I wonder if you can practise writing this sentence - The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. (document below). It uses all the letters in the alphabet, so it is really useful!


2. Simple sentence - I wonder if you can write something about the picture? I wonder if you can think of your own sentence or perhaps you could write another ‘I can see’ sentence. I can see... 

It is up to you! If this is a bit tricky, you could have a go at writing some sounds/words.


3. Word of the day - Take a look at today's word of the day and have a go at the activity if you are able to.

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see Wednesday's Collective Worship.

1.) Daily devotion. 2.) I wonder question.

Literacy - The Three Little Pigs

Today we are continuing our new story of The Three Little Pigs.

I have added the story powerpoint below and all the other resources you will need in one document.

Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at matching the word or sentence to the picture. If the word is tricky, have a look at the initial (first) sound in the word. You also have a story word mat which can support you. You don't need to do them all, just do as many as you can. 

 Snack time and this week's Nursery rhyme...

Oats and beans and barley grow

Phonics - ear

We will practise our new sound 'ear' today.

In phonics, we do the following things:

1. Sing the alphabet song (the video below is slightly different to the one we sing at school, but the children know it).

2. Practise all of the sounds that we have learned so far.

3. Practise reading words with the previous sound in.

4. Watch a video of our new sound.

5. Practise writing the new sound (pre-cursive letter formation).

6a. Practise reading words with our new sound in. We segment the sounds and blend them together to say/read the word, e.g. the word -  cat - segment ---> c-a-t - blend ---> cat!

6b. Practise writing words with the new sound in.

1. Alphabet Phonics Song

2. Practise all sounds learned so far!
