Diary Entry:


Every week we would like you to write a diary entry in your exercise book we gave you about something you have done at home. We look forward to reading them when you are back.

You could ask your grown up to photograph your writing and send it to your teacher via email or on the blog. The teachers will be sharing what they have been up to on the blog.


This weeks Task

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Animated Film

This week we are looking at the life cycle of a butterfly. Look at the videos and powerpoints in the knowledge and understanding of the world folder to learn about the sequence of events that take place during the life cycle. Your task this week is to use sequencing words to write about the different stages of a butterflies life.

Below is a template sheet and an example to help you with your writing.

Please remember to send your writing to your teacher on the Year R email as we love to see all of your fantastic work!




Remember to read at least 3 times a week. 

Silly Sentences

This game is great for practising reading skills. Simply write a sentence for your little one to read, then change a word at a time! Is it a silly sentence? ...



Use the Phonic Sheets we have sent home or the PowerPoint to practice saying all the Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds we have learnt in school. How many have you got correct?


To help decide which phonic activities are appropriate for your child ask them whose Phonic group they are in.


If they are with Miss Turner, Miss Campbell or Mrs Atkinson then they need to select the Phase 3 Activities.

If they are with Mrs Wombell, Mrs Anderson or Miss Meek then they need to select the Phase 2 Activities.


Hope this helps 

Phase 2

'ch' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

Let's sound out some 'ch' words! If you want your children to sound out by themselves, simply mute the video.

Shopping Spree Phonics Activity

This is a simple activity to set up at home. All you need is a shopping list, bag for life and a timer.

Write some words on a shopping list (examples below) of objects that can be found around the house. Explain they are going on a shopping spree. Give them the list and tell they have 5 minutes to find all the objects and put them into the bag.

To make it more challenging you could shorten the amount of time you give them.

To add a writing task to the activity, you could take the shopping list away once the objects have been found and you could have a go at writing out a receipt for the items in the bag.

Phase 3
