Day 2: Phonics – writing focus

1. Practise your letter formation in your home learning book. You can use the letter formation sheet given out at parents’ evening.
2. Write the following words
Parents: Please read the words to your child. They can then write them their home learning book. Parents: If these are too challenging perhaps try writing (or sound talking) these words instead.

3. Can you write a sentence including one of the above words?
Challenge: Can you use all the words and turn it into a silly story!

Day 2: Literacy
Book of the week: The smartest giant in town
1. Listen to the story of the week.

2. Draw a story map of the story.
Parents: Here is an example of a story map.

Day 2: Maths – 1 less

1.  Count backwards from 20 using the song.
Oh no! The song seems to have forgotten the number 0! We talk lots about the number 0 being nothing but still being a number. Try to add the number 0 when singing the song.

2. Solve the number problems.
•  I have 5 fish fingers and I eat one. How many do I have left?
• There are 10 children in the park. One child goes home. How many children are left in the park?
• There are 14 chickens in the pen. 1 chicken escapes! How many chickens are left?
• I have 19 Easter eggs. I decide to give one to a friend. How many Easter eggs do I have left?
Parents: Your child could use objects at home to help when counting.

Challenge: Can you do some more number problems?
