Number 3

Today is all about the number 3.

Let’s start with counting to 3. “1 2 3”.

Can you count three matching objects in your home? 3 cups, 3 pencils, 3 spoons.

Next have a go at writing the number 3 using the number rhyme to help you.

“Around the tree and around the tree, that’s the way to make a three”


Our letter sound today is ‘s’.

Says the sound and stretch it out….”sssssssss-snake”

Sssss-small, sssss-sat, sssss-silly, sssss-sand, ssss-sad.

Let’s sound out some ‘s’ words….

s-a-t, s-i-t, s-a-d, s-a-m.

Look at the phonic card and learn to write the sound. “Slither down the snake”.


Friday is creative day! Today I want you to have a go at making your own play-dough.

All you need is 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt and 1 cup of warm water. Mix it together and away you go!

If you create something you want to keep and paint later you can always leave it out in the sun to dry or bake your creation in the oven.

Have fun getting creative!

Word of the week

The word of the week is SMALL.

Please use this word with your children at home. Talk about what it means and give examples.

Make sure to sing our word award song to remember the new vocabulary….

“The word of the week is small, small, small – small, small, small – small, small small. The word of the week is small, small, small – small, small, small”.


Today I want us to take another look at phonics.

The sound of the day is ‘a’.

Practise saying ‘a’ words. aa-apple, aa-ant, aa-art, aa-alligator, aa-avocado.

Next let’s sound out some simple words containing ‘a’.

a-n-t, b-a-t, c-a-n.

Finally let’s write the letter sound down. Remember to go around the apple and down the leaf using your crabby fingers to grip the pencil!
