Week Beginning 27/04/2020

Hello again everyone,


I can't believe we're at the start of another week of home learning, I like to think of it as, a week closer to being back in school together. 


It was lovely to catch up with most of you on the telephone last week and hear all about the activities you are doing at home, it sounds like your parents are being wonderful teachers.  Thank you to you all for your continued hard work and support.


I really enjoy seeing all your posts on our school blog and twitter pages and look forward to seeing your smiley faces every day.  If you have not already uploaded any photos please try and do this, this week.  If you have any problems give me a call at school, I am available in school on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.


As always...take care, stay safe and keep smiling.


Love Mrs Wright x

This week I would like you to complete the following daily activities...





As the sounds taught in each session are now being repeated I have altered which Speed Sound session I would like each group to watch.  Click on the link above.


Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am (Mrs Atherton's RWI groups)

Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am ( Mrs Wright's and Mrs Kubiak's RWI group)

Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am ( Mrs Burrows' RWI group)


Films are shown at the times above and will be available for 24 hours.


  • Write the new sound and five words with the sound into your home learning books.  You could even write a sentence using one of the words.
  • Play one of the phonic games on education city.
  • Use magnetic letters to make words, play 'bingo' with the words you have made.
  • Play I-spy with things you can see out of the window. You could alternate between the initial sound in the word e.g. “I spy with my little eye something beginning with t”. Or with oral blending e.g. “I spy with my little eye a t-r-ee”
