Letters and Sounds


How many sounds can you tell your grown-up? Point to each sound on the sound mat as you say it.

You could ask a grown up to set a timer on a phone or tablet for about 30 seconds. Can you beat the timer?


Watch the video below to practice reading tricky words in captions.



Choose an insect that you like, have a look at some pictures of it in books or on the internet. Talk to your grown-up about what it looks like, think about how it moves or what it sounds like. Can you write some describing words for the insect you have chosen?

When writing, it is okay if words aren’t always spelt correctly. In Reception, children are aiming to use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. We say a word and then listen carefully for the sounds in it – this may be the first sound or they may be able to hear other sounds in the word. We can help by stretching words out (saying them slowly) and helping to find the sounds we hear on the sound mat.



Invite a teddy bear to lunch or tea today. Can you share your food fairly with them so you each have half?

Dance break of the day

Sing-a-long song of the day



Twinkle, Twinkle,  Little Star


Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are,

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky;

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are.
