Learning Objective:  Uses their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. Writes some common irregular words.

Read aloud and revisit the sentence ‘Everything was hot.’ which you have written on to a strip of paper. Reflect on yours and the children’s interpretations, drawing out language and vocabulary used to describe the sensation of being hot or observations made when ‘everything’ is hot. E.g. car seats being too hot to sit on in summer or sweat dripping down your face when running. Each child to think of one aspect of being hot or being somewhere where everything was hot. Ask them to share their ideas then provide them with a strip of paper so that they can record a word or phrase that describes the heat or its effect. Take the strip of paper on which ‘Everything was hot.’ is written and place it at the top of a large piece of paper. Ask the children to arrange each of their own lines in any order they choose to create a free verse poem, for example:

Everything was hot.

Scorching sun,

Sweat dripping,




Watch the video to recap all phase 3 single sounds, digraphs and trigraphs.  Stop the video when appropriate and give children a selection of words to write containing certain sounds.  Give a caption or sentence including a tricky word for the children to write.



 Learning Objective: · Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.

Have a selection of natural objects such as sticks or stones and place a pile in front of the children.  Children estimate how many they think are there.  Check by counting out each one and finding a total.  Children to have a pile of their own and estimate how many and then check by counting.  Find out which child has more than them and adult to ask children to add more by giving a number or take a given number of objects away and give an answer.
