I would suggest that you follow this link to review set 1 sound as your child will know these really well now; (turn off the sound so your child can say what they see).   


Note; Keep asking your child to tell you the set 2 and 3 sounds in their home learning packs so that you know which sounds to practise.


You can also play some fun phonics games here;




Today we are going to try an answer some questions about aliens. Have a look at the question quadrant below and write your answers to the questions.




Try to explain your answers to the questions using the sentence stem ‘I think _________________ because______________’. Remember to use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and read your writing to make sure that it makes sense.








Warm up - count in steps of 2, 3, and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forward and backward. You need to know these times tables by the end of the year.






Today you are going to have a go at solving two-step word problems combining addition and subtraction. You need to read them very carefully and think about each part of the problem.
