It’s been a fantastic start to the week! Well done to all of you and once again a special thank you to all the adults involved in helping with your learning at home, you are doing a great job!

Today we have the following activities:
Phonics FS2 – new sound ‘oo’ as in book
Phonics FS1 – I spy using ‘Robot Talk’
English – Three Little Pigs – retelling the story
Maths FS2 – Playing games to practise subitising
Maths FS1 – Counting out 3
Well Being Wednesday – Kindness Calendar

Here are some of the things you have been doing this week so far.


FS2 Today’s sound is ‘oo’. We can say this two ways and today we think of the sound ‘oo’ as in book or look.

Choose the game you want to play to practise blending. You can play Buried Treasure, Picnic on Pluto or Dragons Den Can you beat your score? Click on the link and choose your game. Click start and then choose Phase 3, then click on today’s new sound +oo.

Now practise reading your new sound ‘oo’ in sentences. Again click on the link and click start. Click next in the bottom right and click on today’s sound ‘oo’.

Or read the sentences below.

Now have a go at writing sentences using the sounds you have learnt so far this week, igh, oa and oo (book). Here are word lists to help.

FS1 Play I-Spy with your vehicles or other toys. Collect a selection of vehicles/toys. Examples would be
Say ‘I-Spy with my little eye a b-u-s’ and the other person must pick up the correct vehicle. Now swap over and the other person has a go.
Grown ups – It’s always best to have the objects or pictures in front of the children for help and inspiration!


We continue with the story of the Three Little Pigs learning another way to help us remember and retell the story.


FS2 As you watch today’s episode on numberblocks, what patterns do you notice?

Today play board games, dominoes, bingo. Can you recognise the number without counting? Can you go on a number hunt walk and identify objects and how many there are without counting?

FS1 Ask a grown up to help you set up some bun cases or muffin tray, with some pasta or similar. Can you put 3 pieces of pasta into each section? You could use a spoon to complete the activity to make it a finger gym exercise too!

Personal, Social and Emotional Development: Well Being Wednesday

Have a look at the Kindness Calendar below. Perhaps you could make your own Kindness Calendar for the next week. You could use these ideas or add some of your own. Remember to include things to do to be kind to yourself as well as others! Don’t forget to let Mrs Ledingham know when you have completed an act of kindness so that she can add it to the Kindness Tree.

Have a great day.
