Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons are available on YouTube for children to watch at home

Practise Set 1 sounds in Speed Sounds Lessons; learn to read Red Words and practise reading and writing using Hold a Sentence.

All lessons will show at 9.30 am each day and be available for 24 hours.

Today's RWI Phonics lessons are now live on their YouTube Channel. Please use link below:


This week we will revisit all the sounds that we have previously taught (e.g. m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u , b, f, e, l, h, r sh, j v, y, w, z, th, ch and qu). Any practise with these sounds at home will help support your child with their phonics knowledge. This week we will be learning the 'x' sound. Please scroll down for a copy of this week's letter formation sheets. Please don't worry, if you do not have a printer! Just write the 'x' sound in a light coloured felt tip for your child to trace over, just as they do on their weekly homework sheets.

Suggested daily timetable for our new sound this week - 'x'



This week we will be looking at the story ‘Supertato’. Click on the 'Stories' icon in our home learning folder and listen to the story 'Supertato.' 

Afterwards, pretend that you are Supertato. How you will you stop the evil pea? How will you catch him? See if you can write a simple sentence to explain what you will do (e.g. I will push him into a bag.) and draw a picture too. 

  Don’t forget to ask an adult to help you sound out words. Make sure you use your sound mat and look at a list of red words.

Follow the weekly Maths programme based around the Supertato stories, that link to our Superheroes topic. This week’s work includes thinking about full and half full, rolling different shaped vegetables, having a sports day and making repeating patterns! I really don’t like the sound of the Evil Pea Teacher! Can you be like Supertato and find the right ones to teach the veggies the correct Maths?


Alternatively, there are daily maths video lessons available on the Oak Academy.

PSHE - Making a Wish Jar

PSHE and fine motor skills: In my house, sometimes we feel sad about not being able to do something due to lockdown. Whenever we think of something that we cannot do, we capture it in a wish, write it in on a piece of paper and post it in the wish jar. Then when lockdown is over, we will open the jar and work our way through the wishes. To develop fine motor skills, cut out pieces of paper ready to write your wishes on. Can you make some with wavy or straight edges? Remember our rules about scissor safety!
