weekly blog icon 2


Please note that this is a 4 day week. The school will be closed for pupils on Friday due to an In-Service day for teachers only.

Handwriting – This week we will be practising the letters x and z.

Handwriting Homework – Monday and Wednesday this week due to no school today on Friday.

Common words – This week we will be making, reading and writing the words just and were.

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 work on Numbers to 20. This week we will be focussing on ordering numbers to 20 and reading and writing the number names.

Topic – We will begin our topic about the Sea and Seashore.
