Story Focus: Little Red Riding Hood


Put 10 things from around the house on a tray - it could be things like a pencil, an orange, some cotton wool, a toy etc.

Ask your child to name each object on the tray. Emphasise the initial sound of each object e.g. a-a-apple or p-p-pen. Ask your child to look carefully at them for about thirty seconds. Cover the things, take one thing away and ask the child to spot what is missing.


Listen to the story Little Red Riding Hood.

Think about the order these pictures belong in. Can you retell the story using these pictures?


Complete one or more of these Choosing the Correct Number for Groups of Objects 1 to 5 Home Learning Challenges.

Play Silly Soup. Use a bowl and spoon as props to act out the song. Invite your child to choose an object to put into the soup and place it in the bowl. After each turn, stir the soup and sing the following song to recite the growing list of things that end up in the soup. Criteria: Objects that start with the initial sound ‘c’.  


Sing the first part of the song to the tune of ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’:

I’m making lots of silly soup

I’m making soup that’s silly

I’m going to cook it in the fridge

To make it nice and chilly

In goes… a cat… a cup… a cap… a carrot... a cucumber... some cake… (and anything else you can find around your house starting with the ‘c’ sound.)


Listen to the story Little Red Riding Hood again.

Take a look at these pictures from the story there are some differences, can your little detectives spot them all?


Practice your careful counting to say how many objects altogether in each line. 

Remember to touch each image, tagging each image with a number name.

Challenge 1- Can you show me that many fingers?

Challenge 2- Can you clap that many times? 

Challenge 3- Can you find the total number in the environment or on your number cards?

Challenge 4- Can you write the number on a piece of paper? Use your number formation rhymes to help.

Challenge 5- Can you say which number is one more than this? Use your number line to help you.

Talk about the title of our core story this week, Little Red Riding Hood. Emphasise how 'red' and 'riding' start with the same sound. 

Watch as the letters of the alphabet make words using phonics. In this episode R loves pretending to be a pirate, so she rustles up a ship and takes her crew on a ride. Listen out for the word that start with the 'rrrr' sound.


Little Red Riding Hood has sent us a letter! She needs our help. Please read the letter together. 

Can you think of a list of things that are red? Or find lots of red objects in your house? Send us a photo of what you can find. 

Can you paint or draw some of these red objects to decorate Little Red Riding Hood's home? 



Have a look around your garden for a selection of natural materials.

Can you form number shapes using what you find?

Have a go at one of these Oral Blending and Segmenting Home Learning Challenges.


Look at these photos of wolves. Talk with your child about what they can see.

How would you describe them? Talk about features like their sharp teeth, soft fur, big eyes etc.

Where do you think they live?

What do you think they eat?

Do they look friendly?

How do they make you feel?

Would you like to meet a wolf?



Have a go at the Chicken Count Song by Jack Hartmann.

Play 'I Spy with My Little Eye'.

I Spy teaches young children to hear the first sound in a word, for example the 'b' in bear or the 't' in tiger.

To extend this activity you could count how many of each animal you can spot. 


Listen to the story Little Red Riding Hood again.

Red's Bed- Can you think of words that rhyme with 'red'?

You could act out the story at home in your bedroom. Use your toys as characters or take on different character roles with members of your family. Encourage your child to use storybook language. Have fun!


Collect five objects and order them by length.
