Hello Caterpillars!


Today we are continuing to look at number bonds to 5.

You will need 5 pieces of lego (you could also use pencils, toys, buttons etc). 


We are going to be looking at splitting these 5 items into 2 groups

(you could use bowls to help you separate the items).


See how many different ways you can split the lego into 2 groups.


See the examples below.

Today in phonics we are going to be looking at the 'th' digraph. This digraph is a little tricky as it can make two sounds. 

Soft th (voiceless): Place tongue between upper and lower teeth. Blow air through teeth.


In words such as: thing, thank, think, bath, moth, both

Hard th (voiced): Place tongue behind upper teeth. Blow air and let tongue vibrates. Feel the buzz.

In words such as: that, this, than, them, then

This week in RE we are continuing to learn about people who help us. If you find yourself in an emergency you can call 999. There are lots of services who can help you when you call 999 such as: police, fire service, ambulance service and the coastguard. Chat to your grownup about all of these services can you talk about how they help us?


It is very important to only call 999 in an emergency.


Learn your address and practise what you would say if you were in an emergency and had to call 999.
