Please make sure that you read every day to an adult and discuss the text.

You could read anything from your house - books, comics, cereal packets, tv subtitles.

Don't forget that you have access to Rising Stars reading planet where you will find the same books that we normally send home (this will be another way for us to know that you are engaging with school work).  If you have forgotten your log in details then please do get in touch.

Oxford Owls is another great website with a wide range of books at different levels 

You could also have a go at the reading challenges we posted here:  - can you tick them all off by the time we return to school?



Look through the phonics sheet.  

Activity 1 - sorting

Sort the words into the correct column according to the way the 'ea' is pronounced.  Say each word out loud to help you.

Activity 2 - reading

Read the sentence out loud - identify the 'ea' word and which column you would sort it into.  remember to break longer words into smaller more manageable chunks to help you sound them out if they are a bit tricky.

Activity 3 - dictation writing

Ask someone in your house to say this sentence to you: My head hurts because the music is too loud.  Write down the sentence using your phonics knowledge to help you.

You DO NOT need to print this sheet, you can complete your work on a whiteboard (just like we do in Phonics lessons) or into your book.



This week we are starting a new unit – poetry.

Today you will be reading or listening to a variety of different poems and responding to them.

Your activity is in the slides.


I have created a video of me reading through the slides if you find this easier than reading them yourself.


Listen to us reading through the slides to you here:

Today we are beginning to learn about subtraction using more formal written methods.

We are starting today by subtracting a 1-digit number from a 2-digit number using pictorial representations (drawing base ten).

I have created a video to demonstrate the method to you which can be watched here:

Look through the PDF document.  Your activity is included within the slides - make sure you show your working out.
