Our story this week is the “Oliver's Vegetables” series by Vivian French.
Phonics Everyday please begin with phonics. Ptactise writing your new sounds correctly in your writing book – remember to write the ascenders (long necks) and the descenders (tails) correctly.
Can you write some words that use that sound? How many can you think of?

Set 2 -and, cat, dog, mum, dad, on.
Set 3 – he, she, we, go, to, the,
Set 4 – said, come, be, you, are, my, was, but.

Maths Looking for amounts
In the series with Oliver there are many images of things to count and group. Look at the images and see how many ways you can see the numbers.
Talking Together How many onions? Can you see them in groups of 2? How many flowers? Can you see them in groups of 2? How many carrots? How many strawberry bushes? Did you need to count them? How else do you see the things growing in the picture?
Activity Talking Together
This memory game is based on you remembering all the items you bought by adding 1 more at a time. It is called “I went to market” but you can change that to whatever shop you want! People tend to remember things if they are funny so experiment! If you want to write things down that is an option if your memory needs some training! If you are in a group it sometimes helps to look at the person and what they have added to the list.
