Background Information for Parents 

This term in literacy the children have been working on: 

  • To recognise and write all of Set 1 sounds
  • Using phonic knowledge to write simple words
  • Using phonic knowledge to write simple sentences using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops
  • To read CVC words and simple sentences
  • To talk about what they have read and show some comprehension when listening to stories

Through the tasks that we set, we will expect the children to try and use the above skills in their reading and writing. We will include tasks through the home learning, to support them in consolidating using these literacy skills.

 This term in mathematics the children have been working on:

  • Number formation
  • Recognition of numerals 1 - 20
  • Number bonds to 5 and 10 using tens frame and part whole models
  • Subitizing (recognising amounts by sight up to 6)
  • More and fewer/less (fewer is used when you can quantify the amount ie fewer sweets but less rice) 
  • Using positional language ie above, below, under, beneath, next to, behind etc
  • Naming and describing 2D and 3D shapes
  • Using langauge related to time and money 
  • Ordering objects by height and weight

Through the tasks that we set, we will be revising the skills above.

Continue to encourage your child to either read their green words, their book or share stories and play Numbots daily.

Summer Term Home Learning

Friday 22nd May 2020


We will now be setting our Literacy lessons through Oak National Academy, supported by the Department of Education. This is an online learning platform which has been created to support home learning by teachers.

Please be aware that there is a phonic and spelling element to the lessons. It focuses on single sounds, initial sounds and the sound in a word, so all children will be able to access this. The children will be asked to practice the formation of the letter using a rhyme - remind them this is not the RWInc rhyme - can they remember it as well?

**Please continue to access the Ruth Miskin Speed Sound and Word Time Lessons on YouTube each day as well, as these will be at the right stage for your child.** 



This week the children will explore the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, building upon their knowledge each day of this traditional tale.

Today is lesson 5 and you will imagine what you will find at the top of the beanstalk and finish writing your story.

Today we would like you to focus on counting in 5s.  There are some activities attached for you to have a go at, it's really important for you to be confident at counting in 2s, 5s and 10s so practising these will really help you. You could use 5p coins to help, your hands or even your toes!
