Weekly Learning

Last week started sorting Materials by their properties. We went on a virtual walk around North Bradley, which was good fun. In Literacy we ordered the story of The Three Little Pigs. 


This week we are going to be thinking about the weather, and test to see which materials are waterproof.  We are also going to develop our map skills.






Weekly Sounds Write

We are now on to the extended code, learning that one sound can be spelt in different ways, for example, u, oo & oul all make the same sound - look, put, and could.  We are now practising reading words with more than one syllable, for example contest.  We are also learning that one spelling can make different sounds, for example oo can be "oo" in doom,  and "u" in good.


In handwriting we are writing our robot letters, focussing on x and z.


Weekly Numeracy

This week we are counting, ordering and making numbers to 20, especially focusing on how teen numbers are made of tens and ones.

In mental maths we continue to learn our number bonds for numbers 1 to 10, for example that 5 can be made by 0+5, 1+4, 2+3, 3+2, 4+1 and 5+0. This week thinking about how many take-away number sentences we can write from each number.



Homework - Reading books will be set electronically on Monday and Thursday via Reading Eggpress.  Our spelling sheet will be available on the website and Google Classroom on Mondays. This supports our Sounds Write work for the week so please practice the spellings even if you can't print it off.

Useful Curriculum Information


PE is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so please only bring PE its in on those days. We will be doing all our PE lessons outside so please make sure your child has appropriate clothes and trainers that they can do up by themselves. Please can you also make sure all PE kit is labelled with names, so we can return mislaid PE kit. Thank you.
