Learning together at home. Wednesday 13th January 2021

Good morning Tigers!

How are you all?

We hope you are all helping at home and listening to the adults who are looking after you and, of course, playing loads!



Learning Intention (What we are learning today):

  • I am learning that two letters together make one sound.
  • I am learning to recognise the diagraph ch
  • I am learning to segment, word -build and blend using ch

Success Criteria (How can I show that I have learned and understood)

  • I can identify that s and h together make the sound ch
  • I can read words that have the sound ch
  • I can write words that have the sound ch
  • I can identify words that contain the sound ch

Our second sound this week is ch.

  • Words that you can try to write: Chop, chat, chin, rich, much, such, chap, check.

You could watch Geraldine’s video here:

Please find attached the sound sheet for this week.

Tricky Word this week is go. We have attached the PDF with block 1 and 2 so your child can continue to practice these. Please work on reading and writing these words.

You can use this website with games to practice these tricky words.



Real or not real

Give your child a sample of words that contain the sound ch: chop, chap, chat, chick, tich, puch, etc. Some of them are real and some of them are not real words ask your child to sort them out in two piles real and not real words.

Reading books

Using the online book given to you on Monday (e-learning journal)


  • Read the story backwards (from back to the front)
  • Use the words from the book to make the sentences of the book and as a challenge you could make new sentences.

General Ideas

These are ideas to try out throughout the week if you are looking for more ideas:

  • Revise single sounds of the alphabet (Jolly Phonics songs are available on YouTube)
  • Continue to work on sounding out and blending to read words.
  • CVC game: read the word using your knowledge of the initial sounds, blend the sounds together and click on the picture that matches the word. Play this game without the sound encouraging your child to sound the words out independently. 


  • These lessons from bitesize could be useful if you want to explore consonants and vowels to secure the learning done previously at school:



Websites that you can use for blending and making words:







Learning Intention:

I can revise my previous learning of addition and can add to numbers together confidently.

Success Criteria:

  • To apply my knowledge of addition in real world situations.
  • To confidently add two numbers together.
  • To recognise the numbers I need to add and use my fingers, number lines or other objects to help me count.

Starter Task (optional)

Watch and join in with this counting video!

Teaching Input:

We are going to practice our adding skills which we have already learned how to do in school.

To start, ask your child what does ‘addition’ or ‘adding’ mean? What do they need to do/think about when ‘adding’?

Now that you have discussed what adding means, ask your child this sum, 4 + 2 = ? (four and two equals…)

  • Put the 4 in your head/on your fingers and add 2 more on.
  • You could make a number line, point to 4 and move up two jumps.

Try again with other numbers, for example, 5 + 3, 10 + 2, 5 + 7.

Select numbers appropriate for your child’s ability. For a challenge use numbers between 10-20, for example, 15 + 3, and for a harder challenge use numbers beyond 20, for example 35 + 3.


Below we have attached three differing levels of worksheets which focus on using their knowledge of number lines, counting and adding. Choose the level of work appropriate for your child. Please only complete one worksheet, unless you would like an extra challenge.

You don’t need to print these sheets, you can do it with objects and your child can find the number. See the photos below for ideas each worksheets for ideas.

Please choose the activity that best suit your child:

Easiest : Adding within 10

Medium: Adding within 20

Trickiest: Adding within 30

Extension Task:

Play this game. Select number range, suitable for your child’s level and have fun learning!

Learning intentions

  • I enjoy singing and playing along to music of different styles and cultures.
  • I have the freedom to use my voice, discover pitch  and rhythm.

Singing and playing singing games supports children’s learning and emotional development in a wide variety of ways , contributing to the development of skills such as

  • creativity
  • listening
  • speech and articulation
  • reasoning
  • special awareness
  • memory
  • co-ordination
  • language development
  • developing positive relationships
  • aerobic exercise
  • releasing endorphins

But most importantly, singing is fun!

We were disappointed when we were asked to stop singing together in school, but now we can sing as much as we wish at home!

Here is a short video, with a singing game that some of you may already know. Have fun playing this game at home, and always remember, singing is good for you:

And here is another song to sing along with and make you feel happy.

We hope you have a lovely day!
