A reminder that this is a 4 day week – school will finish at 3pm on Thursday and will be closed for the 2 week Easter Holiday.

This week we will be doing lots of stories, crafts and activities centred around the Easter Story.

Gym – Monday

Handwriting – This week we will be practising the letters p and f.

Handwriting Homework – Monday and Wednesday due to it being a shorter week.

Common words – This week we will be making, reading and writing the words out and our .

Please help your child to practise reading the common words by using the words in their word pots to play games and test their word recognition skills. Lots of the common words can’t be sounded out so the children need to be encouraged to look at the shape of the whole word and use letters to help them. Please practise the words on the common word wall (found in their Home School Book). See if your child can match the words in their pot with the ones on the wall and then help them to try and read them. If the words are ticked they were able to read them in class.

Reading – We are continually working with the children to check their recognition of the 26 sounds, their common words and their understanding of text. Your child will get either a reading book or a reading activity on Monday and Wednesday this week.

Maths – We are continuing our new block of work on Numbers to 20. We will continue doing addition sums up to the value of 10 and revising ‘o’clock’ using digital and analogue clocks.


We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a lovely break over Easter and to thank you for your continued support and interest. Happy Holidays!
