Today we are learning about the ‘ph’ sound in words like phonics and amphibian. Below are some videos to watch going through some ‘ph’ sound words.

ph spelling for the /f/ sound - Mr Thorne Does Phonics - YouTube

Geraldine the Giraffe learns /ph/ - YouTube

Talk about the ‘ph’ sound.  Can you say the sound?  Can you write the sound? Can you read the real and nonsense words with the ‘ph’ sound in (look at the word cards attached to this blog)? Can you write a sentence with one of the real words in?


Today we are going to continue with an activity around the story of Bob the Bubble. Can you plan and write a new adventure for him? Who does he meet? It could be a spider or a bird or some bees. How does Bob help them? What happens at the end of the story?

You could make puppets and retell your new story, draw a story map showing what happens in different parts of your story or write your story in sentences. Please remember to send in photographs of your work for us to see.


Today, we are learning about subtraction crossing 10. Watch the video Spr1.4.1 -Subtraction crossing 10 (1) on Vimeo and complete the sheet attached to this blog.

Number Fluency

Today we would like you to practise your number bonds for 10. Make some number cards or use the ones attached to this blog. You need to write the numbers from 0 to 10 and include an extra 5. Take it in turns to pick up a card and find the number that goes with it to make 10.


This week we are thinking about what other good news Jesus brings. The themes of the week are friendship, peace and forgiveness. Attached to this blog is some information that we would cover in class.

Start by thinking about: a time when you felt really peaceful. Where were you? What were you doing? How did it make you feel? What does peace look like? Follow the activities in the attached file and draw what you think peace, friendship and forgiveness look like.

As always, if you need help with any of these activities, please do not hesitate to contact us via the class email address.
