Home Learning Week Beginning 25.01.21

We are trialling a new timetable for our home learning this week (please see the coloured crayons below). This maps out the English and Mathematics lessons for you. We would love to hear your feedback on whether it was helpful to have a suggested list of activities for each day.

Please let us know. smiley


Our home learning grid this week will be a choice of fun activities which you can

slot in on days which suit you best.



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, qu and x). Any practise with these sounds at home will help support your child with their phonics knowledge. This week we will be learning the 'ng' sound. Please scroll down for a copy of this week's letter formation sheet. 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.

Alphabet Challenge!



At school , we do our main Maths lesson in the morning and this week at home, we are going to follow the online lessons from the Oak Academy.


Also, in school we have a 'Whizzy' Maths session in the afternoons to recap and revise our Mathematical skills. These lessons are really useful for our Maths, similar to how our work in Phonics lessons supports our Reading and Writing. Please click on the crayons labelled with the current day of the week for these activities.
