1. Phonics and English

Are you ready to learn some more letters and the sounds they make? 2 more this week. They are both digraphs, where 2 letters make 1 sound. Remember when we write these we join the letters rather than taking our pencil off in between each letter.

This week we are learning the letters and sounds they make for oi and ow.  Watch the videos and see how many things you can think of that start with those sounds. These videos cover all the sounds this week- have a watch




We are also learning to read some tricky words- the, to, no, go, I, he, she, we, be, was, they, you, all, my, her. Watch this song all about the words we cannot sound out, and have to learn by sight.

Have a go at reading some CVC words and matching them to the pictures with this free game on Phonics Play



In English we are reading our talking story called The Enormous Turnip.    


1. Letter ow- this is a digraph; 2 letters making 1 sound.


Can you make your own ow poster using the PDF link below?

How many things in your house contain the sound ow? Can you take photos of the things you find and add them to Tapestry?


2. Letter oi- this is a digraph; 2 letters making 1 sound.



Can you make an oi poster? PDF link below.

Can you complete the oi poster? Colour in the pictures that contain oi and trace the letters, remember to join the o and i together.


3. Recapping oi and ow





Can you sort the pictures into either oi and ow sets?


4. Today we are going to explore onset and rime. This is where the ending of the word is the same, but the initial sound changes.

Have a look at the picture and see if you can see what is the same about the words and what is different? (Hint; the words either end with “at” or “an” and the first letter is the thing that changes.)

Can you sort the pictures into sets? It might help if you split the word into its onset (first sound) and rime (the string of letters that follows).
It would be amazing if you have a go at writing a list of these words? Can you make an –at list and an –an list?  PDF link


5.  English

This week we are continuing to learn the story The Enormous Turnip.

Watch Miss Churchward read the story and then re-tell it with your adult. There is a text map to print off and the story to help your adult! https://youtu.be/6kCWjLv-xjs

There is a PDF link for the text map and the story.

Last week we innovated the story by changing the characters who pull the vegetable, we also changed the vegetable.

If you didn’t innovate the story try this week- draw a picture of the new characters.

Then can you try and write a simple sentence related to the story. For example: The man pulled and pulled the turnip. (Use your own character and vegetable from your innovated story.)

The turnip was stuck in the mud.

We need to learn to subitise. This means looking at an amount of objects and knowing how many there are without needing to count them. We can only subitise to 5. Watch these videos to help you learn to subitise. Feel free to pause the videos as you learn to recognise amounts.




Can you chant in 10s and 2s? Watch these videos to help you.
