Literacy Activities


Today our focus sounds are oa/ow

How many oa and ow words can you think of? Remember the oa goes in the middle of words and the ow goes at the end of words. Talk to a grown up about the words you have thought of. Now try to write some of them down.

Here are a few to start you off….

boat          coat         goat       

flow       grow       blow     

Power Points:


Please complete the attached oa/ow worksheets.

Activity  oa

Cut and paste activity

Activity  ow:

Spot, highlight and read the ‘ow’ words within the passage.

Tricky words: Please revise Block 1, 2 and 3 as well as the First 100 Fry words. Take your time, every child is at a different stage. Follow your child’s lead. Don’t rush, it is better to have few secured than all not consolidated.

  • Please continue to use the tricky word power points.
  • Challenge: If your child can read all of the words quickly and confidently test how well they can independently spell the tricky word when you read them out loud (just like dictation). Continue to practice your 100 fry words.

Task :

Today we are going to be looking ahead to school next year and writing about the following question:

What would you like your next teacher to know about you?

I would firstly, like you to draw a picture of yourself with as much detail as possible. It could be a picture of you doing something you really enjoy at home (swimming, gymnastics, football), something you like doing at school (literacy, numeracy, art) or just a picture of you with lots of detail (eyelashes, eyebrows).

Then I would like you to tell your next teacher something you would like them to know about you.

For example:

My name is _______ and my favourite food is pasta.  I have 1 little brother. At school I really enjoying singing my favourite song called Over in the Meadow with my friends in my class.  Next year I would like to work more on adding numbers to 20. I enjoy playing in the sand pit. At home I enjoy playing football with my brother but I also really like painting pictures too.

I would like you all to write 4 things you would like your teacher next year to know about you. 1 of those things must be something that you would like to learn or get better at next year.

This will be something I will be able to pass over to your next teacher so please try your hardest.

Adult, please don’t focus on correcting the spelling to start with if it is phonetically correct.


  • Capital letter at the beginning of a sentence. (please only use capital letters in the correct place and encourage your child to use lowercase letters while writing).
  • Full stop at the end of a sentence.
  • Finger spaces between words.

I would love to see your amazing writing once it is finished.


Information handling

Success criteria

  • I can collect and organise objects for a specific purpose.
  • I can apply counting skills to ask and answer questions and make relevant choices and decisions based on the data.
  • I can contribute to concrete or pictorial displays where one object or drawing represents one data value, using digital technologies as appropriate.
  • I can use knowledge of colour, shape, size and other properties to match and sort items in a variety of different ways.
