Please choose the phonics document as specified by your child's teacher via Marvellous Me. 

Each session starts with a recap of the sounds we already know. Slide 1 can be read several times with the children trying to say the sounds clearly and quickly.

Slides 2 and 3 are often practice sounds that the children already know. These pages are for the children to work on their speed of reading. They should say the sounds individually before blending together to read the word.

Slide 4 is the new sound. Again the children should sound out the word and then blend to read the word. 


Each slide can be read 2 or 3 times as the key to learning to read is over practice. At school the children would spend around 20 minutes practicing these 4 slides saying the words many times to increase speed. 




Go through the power point, and be guided by the audio.  You may choose to use a pencil and paper for this session or interact with the slides. Today's lesson focuses on ordering numbers using number lines and representing number.



We have been reading a story called "That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown" by Cressida Cowell and Neal Layton. 


The Queen  is desperate to have Emily's bunny rabbit - Stanley - and has sent the Chief Footman, the Army, the Navy and the Air Force to try and get Emily to give him up. Emily has so far refused! 


Here is a copy of a letter that the Queen has now sent to Emily Brown. Read through it with your adult. What do we already know about the Queen? What can we learn about her from this letter? 


Draw a picture of what you think the Queen looks like. Write some words to describe the Queen around your picture. Take a photograph of your work and email it to us!
