Your child will need to practise their phonics daily.

Please access the ‘Read Write Inc Phonics Lessons at Home Page’ on YouTube at for a daily phonics lesson.

Parents should first watch the 3 minute ‘Parent Video: Introduction to Daily Read Write Inc. Phonics Lesson’. There are many other helpful Read Write Inc videos on this page for parents and on the Oxford Owl website.

The sound your child will need to focus on will depend on their RWI group before the school closure.

Today’s phonics lessons are:-

We will be looking at poems and repetitive stories this week.

For today, please see the separate activities based around the poem ‘Dad and the Cat and the Tree’ by Kit Wright.

An adult should read the poem and if you are able to, print out and cut up the picture cards. These cards should be shuffled and then try to sequence them in the correct order. Finally, use the cards to retell the story orally.

Draw a picture of what you think will happen next and write some sentences under the picture. You can record your work in your home school sharing book, an exercise book or a notebook. An adult may need to help create a writing frame in your books.

When writing, remember to think it, say it, like it, write it and read it again. 

Choose your writing peak challenge below.

Can I use a conjunction (e.g. because, so, but, so, or, then) to join two sentences?

Can I use an interesting adjective (describing word)?



See separate maths activities about number bonds (pairs of numbers) to make 8 or 9.

This includes a learning reminder, two levels of practice sheet, guidance if you get a bit stuck and a few questions to check your understanding. All the answers are provided so that you can ‘tick or fix’ your work with an adult.  


If you have no access to a printer at home, write answers in home school sharing book, exercise book or a notebook.

Quick recall of number bonds to 10 can be practised by playing the Hit the Button game at If your child is confident with number bonds to 10, they could try number bonds to 20.


Thank you for all the spring pictures and writing handed in on PurpleMash. I have given each child feedback on their work and a digital reward sticker. The stickers can be found by logging onto PurpleMash and selecting the trophy icon at the top of the screen. This work has been transferred to your child’s digital work folder in their ‘Done 2Dos’ subfolder.

More home learning challenges will be posted tomorrow.
