Please aim to do one activity a day.
Continue playing the games previously provided to help you with rhyming, oral blending and initial sounds.
Use your ‘Reading Eggs’ account to play fast phonics.
Have a look, with a grown up, at the Letters and Sounds for Home and School Channel on youtube: www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw
Recap some of the sounds we have learnt in school (using the above link), particularly if there are any you are finding tricky.
Watch and listen to the ‘tricky word’ song to help you to remember them: www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2dx65u59aw

Look for representations of the number 5 around your house. For example, 5 bananas, 5 chairs, 5 on the clock etc. You could draw pictures of the things you have found.
Other areas of learning
Please see the picture below, ask your child to talk about the picture and tell a story. There are some suggestions of questions that you can ask.
Watch these clips of the ‘Go Jetters’ in Australia:
With a grown-up, find out more information about Australia and these landmarks: Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef. You could paint a picture of one of the landmarks and have a go at labelling it.
Look at the photograph of Sid the Sloth in Australia (below). Write a list of all the things that you can see in the photograph. Don’t forget to use your phonics skills to do this. For example: if you can see some people and you can hear the sounds ‘p’ and ‘l’ for people, that is great and exactly what we would like you to do!
You could also:
Practice forming letters
