  • If your child is not a confident sound spotter, encourage your child to sit for the word time and spelling lessons of both Set 1 & Set 2. (Most children should now be confident with Set 1 and will only require recapping Set 2 Sounds.) 
  • With a pen and paper at the ready, ask your child to join in and write the words. They will then tick each sound and see if they are right.
    • Suggestion: If your child isn't enjoying the video, perhaps using all the online materials as a guide, do your own lesson, read the word aloud yourself and ask them to write the word. Or ask your child to give you a lesson!
  • Phonics Play: 
    • Choose the Phase 3 option and then choose from the options.
    • Suggestion: recap consonant digraphs as the children can struggle with these.


This week, we will be recapping the formation of our Curly Caterpillar letters.

This can be written into the Home Learning books, or alternatively, a print out of the letters (pages 1 to 5) can be found here:


Today we will be concentrating on letters c and a. Can you form them correctly? Can you write out the words? Remember your ascenders and descenders. Where does your letter sit on the line? Where do you start your letter?


This week, we are going to be using the materials from White Rose Maths. Each day, there is a short video to follow online with some simple activities: 


  • The PDF of today's activities can be found here:

  • Challenge. Complete the following:

Spellings - Red Words 

Todays focus is: there

As we do in school, show and say the word to your child, then ask them to recall it to you. Repeat several times. Hide the word, show the word. Perhaps add in some of our previous red words?


Encourage your child to...

  • Write the word three times into your Home Learning book. Can you circle your best one?
  • Use this word within their own sentence i.e. There were no cars to play with.
  • Ask your child to write their sentence into their Home Learning book. Can they write three?

Other Work

Today, I would like you to make your own set of red words. You now have almost all of our red words and can continue to add to them this week as a new one is revealed. It is important that you practice your recognition of these words daily. Just like we would do in class. Maybe you could have a red word stop sign somewhere in your house?
