Phase 3 Phonics- 'er'

Start by testing your phonics sound knowledge with our flashcard game. Can you remember all of your sounds?

Next, learn Phase 3 phonics at home with this brand new sound from Leanne and Felix! Today's lesson is all about the 'er' sound.

Test your new sound knowledge by completing the worksheet. Fill in the missing sound gaps.


We have been looking at the story 'Can't you sleep little bear?' (please see video and document link).


Re-watch the story. We are going to have a go at describing the different scenes throughout the story. 

Come up with some adjectives to describe the setting of each of the 4 scenes. 


Eg. Gloomy, Dark, Scary, Moonlit


Use your best adjectives!



Spelling test-

On a piece of paper, can you remember your spellings from last weeks homework?


  • Goal
  • Coach
  • Snow
  • Toe
  • Grow

and our tricky sounds- go, no, so


Can you use them in a sentence?

In Maths, we are looking at our number bonds to 10 this week.



Revise number pairs to 10 (1 and 9, 8 and 2, 3 and 7...etc) and derive subtraction facts (10-1=, 10-4=, 10-8=...etc). Use the 100 square and start at a two-digit number. Count on is 1s, then 2s, then 3s and then count backwards in the same format, practicing counting more and less.




Maths main activity-

  • Ask children if they can remember the bonds to 10: the pairs of numbers that total 10.
  • Show a tower of ten cubes (or objects at home) and explain that we are going to write addition and subtraction number sentences on some paper, using the objects to help us.
  • Ask child to split the objects of 10 and show parent, (e.g. they split it into four objects and six objects). Ask children if they can show this on their fingers. (Either four fingers standing and six folded, or six standing and four folded down.)
  • Ask children what number sentence we can write. Write correct suggestions down, e.g. 6 + 4 = 10, 4 + 6 = 10, 10 = 6 + 4 and 10 = 4 + 6 are all correct.
  • Write 4 + ☐ = 10. What goes in the box? Show with the objects 4 + 6 = 10. Explain that we can write this as a subtraction: 10 – 4 = ☐. Explain how 10 – 4 = 6 relates to 4 + 6 = 10. Use the cubes to show that when you have four, you need six more to make the ten and when you have 10 cubes and take away four you have six left.
  • Repeat, asking child to break the set of objects in a different way, then ask children to show this bond on their fingers. Read the sentences, discussing how we know so many things when we know a pair that makes 10! This is the beauty of maths, knowing one simple thing can lead you to more and more answers.
  • Point to the ‘–’ sign on a piece of paper and ask child what it means. Discuss how it is a subtraction sign, it means subtract. (Sometimes we say ‘take away’.) Our subtractions today always start with ten.
  • Show, using the objects, that 10 – 3 = 7. How can we write this as an addition sentence? We know that 3 + 7 = 10, because if you have 3 you need 7 more to make 10.

Our PM lesson is PE. We have just started to look at Gymnastics. Please follow the Youtube Video below to practice your balances from Week 1- how many can you remember?
