Week 6 - Week Beginning 5th October 2020

 Name Writing

  • Practise writing your name everyday.



We are learning to read and write a different letter each day:

Monday - e

Tuesday - l

Wednesday - h

Thursday - r

Friday - j

Watch the video on espresso about the letter.

Now tell your grown-up some words that start with today's sound. Finally have a go at writing the letter a few times.

Grown-ups: Every day, revisit the previous sounds that they have learnt.



This week we will continue with our 'Those Nearest and Dearest'.


  • Talk to your grown-up about who your friends are in school. What are their names? What games do you like to play together? What do you do to make sure you are being a good friend? (Grown-ups: Talk to your child about the importance of sharing and turn-taking).
  • Make a picture or card for one of your friends.
  • Draw a picture of you and your friends.


The following books are all around the theme 'friendship'. Listen to a different story each day. Discuss the characters and events in the stories.

  • I can count to 20 song with actions
  • Rally Robin counting to 20. (Adult and child face each other. Adult says 1, child says 2, adult says 3, child says 4 and so on until you get to 20)
  • Every time you go upstairs, count the steps. Remember to say 1 number name for each step.
