   Working on sounds   


Set 1 Sounds lesson














 Sound of the Day 


  • Play with your sounds.
  • Make words.
  • Stick them up around the house (on door frames, in different rooms).
  • Challenge your child to find the sounds.
  • Match a sound to an object (e.g. ch - chair). 
  • Play Fred talk games 


We have learnt all Set 1 sounds now.

If you feel your child wants or needs to practice more. All the sounds are in the document below. Focus on the sounds your child finds the most difficult and continue to do a different sound each day.

   Working on blending...   


Have a go at some of the 'FRED' talk games. You can play these throughout the day to help your child begin to blend. There are also some videos to watch to help you get the hand of 'FRED' talking.

   Working on reading...   

Remember, all the resources I have provided are for your child to read (not for you to read to your child). Find where your child is comfortable in having a go. 


  • Watch the video to help your child begin to recognise 'red' words (the, I, put, of)
  • Have a go at the Ditty pages - try one a day. You might want to start off with just reading a small amount. 
  • Please find some simple books in the tab below. Start with the Red ditty book bag books.




Think; ask questions; find out; play


We are covering numbers to 20. 

Have a look at this Numberblocks video about the numbers 11-15 and talk about the tens and ones. Why is 11 written with a 1 and a 1? Is it 1+1? 

    Storytime with Miss Berrington    

The Enormous Crocodile

This is a long story for little children. If you need to, take a break part way through, or you could watch some then have a go a an activity before watching the rest of the video.
It is a great story - I hope you enjoy it!

Magic Shoes

Where would you go with magic shoes? What would you like to see? Would your magic shoes give you any super powers?


A poem for after Doh Disco - squash, squeeze, roll your doh. What will you make?

Five Minutes' Peace

A story that I love reading out loud. I hope you enjoy listening to it!

The Invisible String

Today we are remembering a little girl in our school who sadly passed away. The other classes will be remembering her in worship today and will be hearing this story to help with their grief. Perhaps you could listen to this together - it is not only relevant to loss but in many ways it fits with what a lot of us are experiencing at the moment.

We're Going on a Polar Bear Hunt

I made a different version of a story we all know! I wonder if you can find a polar bear in your garden, or maybe a penguin or an arctic fox? Have fun on your snowy adventures today!

Arthur and the Meanies

Another one from the school library! This one has some lovely illustrations (they are the pictures in the story). If you make some illustrations, I would love to see it!

The Ugly Five

I filmed this first thing in the morning - excuse the tired eyes! Who else feels tired in the morning?

My Monster and Me

Another lovely story about worries. This is a lovely one to share when you are trying to encourage sharing feelings at home. I have also put together a 'How do I feel today...' section at the top of our class page to support talking about emotions at home.

A Squash and a Squeeze

You could retell this story using teddies/animals at home. Maybe you could build a house for the little old lady.

A Squash and a squeeze

The Runaway Iceberg

Go on an adventure with two little penguins. Maybe you could tell a story about your adventure in the Antarctic!

Owl Babies

We love this story in Ash class. Have a go at retelling it with a grown up at home.

Story time: A Dot in the Snow | Oxford Owl

It's story time! Watch this story of a curious polar bear, a little girl lost in the snow, and the precious friendship they discover together - a heart-warming wintery story.

The Worrysaurus

This is a lovely story about worries and how we can help calm our little worries.

Whatever Next!

Baby Bear goes on an adventure to the moon.

I can do anything that's everything all on my own

Charlie and Lola stories are lots of fun. What can you do on your own? What is more fun to do with other people?

The Gruffalo

I chose one of my favourite woodland stories and read it in the woods! It was chilly. The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.

The Gruffalo Song

By Julia Donaldson.
Have a go at making up some actions.

The Three Little Pigs

This is my favourite story to tell out loud. I wonder if you can remember all the actions.

Sidney Spider

Theo the dog was not so helpful this time! I had to chop out a lot of excited chatting. Story belongs to Talk4writing - copyright Pie Corbett

Pippety Skycap

Enjoy storytelling with the mischievous little pixie - Pippety Skycap. Story rights belong to Talk4writing

The Snail and the Whale

Reading the story of the Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. Which place would you like to visit?
