Today we are learning about the ‘ey’ sound in words like keys, donkey and trolley. Below are some videos to watch going through some ‘ey’ sound words.

ey for /ee/ sound - Mr Thorne Does Phonics - YouTube

Geraldine the Giraffe learns /ey/ - YouTube

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


Last week we were learning about different animals and today we are going to be thinking about fish again. Fish live in fresh lakes and rivers and salty seas and oceans all over the world. Many people also like to keep fish as pets in their home and garden. Today we would like you to write a fact file about how to look after a pet fish. Some information has been attached to this blog for you to use or you can do your own research. You can either write in your home learning book or use the template attached to this blog. You can choose how to organise your fact file but remember to include a title and subheadings, put information in sections and include some pictures if you can.


Today, we would like you to practise some of the skills that we have been learning over the last few weeks. Attached to this blog are some maths questions for you to complete.

We would also like you to practise reading numerals and number words up to twenty. You can make your own set of cards or use the set attached to this blog. You need to have one set of cards with numerals from 0 to 20 and one set with the number words from zero to twenty Start by asking your child to reading the numeral on each card and help them to read the number words if they are struggling. Try matching the numerals and the number words. If your child is having difficulty recognising particular numbers please let us know via the class email address and we will plan some activities to help with those numbers.

Here’s a game that you can play. Start by finding the numeral and word cards for numbers up to ten. Next turn them all face down and spread them out. Take it in turns to turn over two cards. Say the number on each card out loud. If they match you win the pair, if they don’t you put them back.  If appropriate try using all the number cards.


This week we are thinking about how Christians share the Good News with others.

Work through the activities in the information attached to this blog. They focus on forgiveness and how it feels. Forgiving people can be hard sometimes, but Christians know this is what God wants his people to do and he promises to help them to forgive. Christians see this as Good News.

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