  • Ask the children if they can hear any words that begin with the same sound in a sentence. For example 'hairy hobgoblins'. Can they say that sound? This is called alliteration (please use this word with the children as new vocabulary).
  • Can they think of any spooky alliterative phrases? Eg the creepy, creepy castle, the spooky, scary spider. Ask the children to draw some of these things and see if they can write the letter the words start with.
  • Can the children hear the rhyming words in Foggy, Foggy Forest? Can the children draw pictures of three rhyming words? Eg cat/bat/rat



This week we are learning about the number 5, 2d shapes and making patterns. Follow the below links to see lessons being taught on these

Use 5 small items as counters. How many ways can you make 5? Eg 2 and 3, 0 and 5 etc. Can the children make their own number lines to 5? How many ways can the children make 5p with 1p, 2p and 5p coins?

Can you find any squares, oblongs/ rectangles, circles or triangles in the house or garden? Go on a shape hunt! Maybe the children can use a phone or a tablet to take some photographs?



The phonemes we are covering this week are  ck   e    u    r.   Please follow these links to lessons about these.

Help the children practise writing the letters with pens or pencils or by using their finger in a tray of sand or flour.

Use the letter flashcards we have sent home recently to help you children learn all the sounds so far. If you are unsure of the pronunciation of these sounds this video is helpful.


Please also use the 'tricky word' flashcards ( I/to/no/go/the/into) to help you children learn these words by heart.
