This weeks stars are…

In English our core text is:

‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.


With all the MOOing and HISSing and BAAAing and CLUCKing, the farmyard is full of noise. But when Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len hatch a plot to steal the fine prize cow, it’s the quietest animal of all who saves the day!


In Maths we are learning:

to count forwards and backwards to 30 and beyond. We are practising reading and writing numbers to 30. We will be ordering numbers to 30 and then 50; and then use our understanding of place value to find one more or less than a given number. We will be exploring the properties of simple 2-D and 3-D shapes. To help us with our addition and subtraction we will be using a range of concrete models (plastic animals, counters, cubes and Numicon).


Our science topic this term links with our farm text – Humans and Other Animals.


Our School (history within living memory)We will be looking at how our school has changed since it was built.


Any specific learning:

Phonics- please help your child by reading regularly at home and practicing their weekly spellings. These skills will help your child improve their phonics skills and in turn, their reading and writing. You can find fun online phonics games at www.phonicsplay.co.uk


Ways you can help your child:

Read to them everyday and talk about the books you have read. Listen to them read, the children all have a reading book and reading record book in their book bags. Practise reading their letter sounds and key words regularly please and encourage the children to practise writing their key words.  This will help them greatly with their reading and writing work in class. Counting wherever possible and encourage children to join in with shopping activities, buying objects and using money and receiving change.  Spend time talking with your child about their topic at school.
