Today we are going to start our new topic! We are reading the traditional tale The Three Little Pigs. Watch the video below to hear the story and find out about today's task. Have a look at the 'drama scenarios' sheet to choose a part of the story to act out. If you would like some extra activities, you could make stick puppets or masks to help with your drama, or complete a book review about your favourite part of the story!

This week we are going to recap phase 3 sounds (and some phase 2 double consonants). We went over all phase 3 sounds in the Autumn term so your child should be familiar with all of these sounds. If they are not familiar with these sounds then please use this week to recap any sounds they are unsure of - you know your child best!

Please see the lessons, videos and resources available below! Good Luck! smiley

For todays lesson you will need paper, scissors and pens!

We are starting this term by working with numbers 1-20.

Start with a song and game - Counting 1-20 song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VLxWIHRD4E

Counting 1-20  balloon game: http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/mathgames/earlymath/BalloonCount20.htm  


Go through the power point so the children can build on their existing knowledge of counting forwards and backwards by introducing the numbers 11-20. Children will explore the meaning of the suffix ‘teen’ and what this tells us about a number. Children may have difficulty with 11, 12, 13 and 15 as they cannot hear the single digit in the name like others e.g. sixteen –six ones and a ten.  

Ask questions such as:
What do you notice about the sounds / patterns of the numbers? Do the ones always become greater when we count?  What comes after the number 10? What does ‘teen’ tell us about a number? How do we say this number?

How would we write ______?


Complete differentiated work sheets.

Count and write the numbers 1 - 20 and practise your number formation! Making sure your numbers are the right way around :)

Live Check-In @ 11:30am
