  This week we will be learning to spell words with the suffix ‘ed’. Some words may require us to only add a ‘d’. as an introduction to this spelling rule, look at the ‘ed’ suffix powerpoint.

10.00-10.30 Breaktime - have a healthy snack and play.  

Reading –

Oxford Owl have made available for parents all the ebooks linked to each RWI level. This means we no longer need to upload the books to the webpage. Instead, please go to the webpage below. If you go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 

Here is the link for the Oxford Owl reading.

This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 

 For every phonics session, please continue to watch the set 3 speed sounds at 10:30 on the Ruth Miskin Youtube channel. Then read a book from the webpage detailed above.


Guided reading – for those of you in guided reading, please look at the powerpoint at the bottom of the page. On each page there is a speaker icon, if you press it then you should be able to hear me reading the story. I will be reading the first three chapters to you. Please follow along with all three chapters attached.

See if you can join in with the song once you get the hang of the tune.  


Question: Did you notice from the song what 3D means? 

From this, can you work out what 2D means? 

Write it in your learning journal. 


Task 1 - go through the Powerpoint on the class page & see if you can identify the shapes on there. 


Task 2 - complete the task on the class page. There are 3 tasks on the same document which increase in difficulty. Please choose one of these tasks to complete based on how you feel about your knowledge of shape. Don’t forget to try to challenge yourself. There are shape mats also on the class page that you can look at to help you. You can always look it up on the internet as well if you are unsure. 


Task 3 - go on a shape hunt around your house, garden or whilst on a walk. Which shapes can you find within objects around your house? Which shapes can you find within the environment? Take photos or draw/make notes of what you find in your journal. 

12.15-1.15 Lunchtime and playtime

By the end of this lesson you will have chosen which story you will be retelling for your puppet show and by the end of the week you will have created puppets of the different characters in the story and you’ll be ready to perform your puppet show!!



Today, mindmap the different books that you could imitate.  You will need to think about which characters are in each story as this could affect which one you choose. If you are stuck for ideas of stories, look back at the stories that the teachers have been reading you over the past few weeks.

See my example below:



Once you have created your ideas mindmap, you will need to choose the best idea. Think carefully about which one would work well as a puppet show. Will you be able to make the characters?

Write down the name of your chosen story and then explain why you have chosen it like I have done in my example below:



At the end of the lesson look back at the success criteria. Did you name lots of different stories? Did you name the main characters in those stories? Did you say which one you would like to imitate and why?
