Next Week’s Learning

Next week in maths we will be recapping time by sequencing parts of the day and putting days and months in order.

In phonics we will practise reading and writing words containing the adjacent consonants: br, fr, sk, lt, ft, lp

We will practise spelling the tricky words: they, all, are

We will practise reading the high frequency words: help, it’s from

In topic we will be looking at our caterpillars and how they have changed.  We will design and make our own minibeasts using a range of different materials.  In PE we will play a range of team games.

This Week’s Learning


This week we had an exciting new arrival of caterpillars.  Each class has a pot of caterpillars.  We have watched them grow bigger and learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly. We read ‘The Very Hungry caterpillar’ and wrote our own versions of the story.  On Friday we took part in the Toddle Waddle.  The children did very well and walked 5 laps of the field to raise money for Barnado’s.

In maths we have been recapping our 2D and 3D shape knowledge.  We made 2D shapes using lolly sticks and played games where we described 3D shapes.

In phonics we practised reading and writing words containing adjacent consonants.  (For more information on adjacent consonants please see the information sheet sent home with children today.)

Next Week’s Learning

Phonics: Next week we will be continuing with Phase 4 which looks at adjacent consonants. We will also be continuing  to practise blending and segmenting words containing these adjacent consonants before ending the week with the tricky words ‘have’, ‘like’, ‘come’ and ‘some’

Maths: During maths we will be recapping 2D and 3D shapes. Focusing on recognising their properties and  being able to describe them.

Topic: Throughout the week we will be reading the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and looking at writing a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end. We will also be looking at the life cycle of a caterpillar and seeing how they change through each stage of their life. We will also be learning how to program directions into a ‘bee bot’ and talking about how to work with our friends to solve problems.

Next Friday we will be undertaking the Toddle Waddle in which we will be making 5 laps of the school field to help raise money for Barnardo’s childrens charity.
