Week beginning Monday 9th September 2019

This week we are doing our sponsored walk up the Gramps on Friday.



This week our letter sounds are t and i. Letter t homework should be completed for Wednesday and letter i homework should be completed by Friday.


This week our sound is ee.  The children will get 6 words with the ee pattern and 2 common words to learn for homework. Please write each word twice in the homework book and complete for Thursday. Spelling test will be on a Friday.


The P1 children will be introduced to two new common words which can be reinforced at home by completing the common word homework for Thursday. Words for this week are I and in. You may need to help your child writing the number after counting the words together.


P2 common words will be the last 2 words on the spelling list each week. This week our words are up and went.




We will continue with the books with no words and these will be changed daily. The children will hear the extended story in school and can retell the story to an adult at home.

The children will still have the main character names in their word pot. Kipper, Biff, Chip, Mum, Dad and Floppy.

Please bring the pink home/school book, reading book and word pot to school every day in the book bag.


Our reading days are Mondays and Thursdays. The children will get a new book on these days. Please see the grid in the pink home/school book and sign when reading has been done at home.



At this early stage the children will be listening to stories about number, doing counting and pattern activities and forming the numbers.


The P2s have been doing some revision of addition and subtraction. We will continue with our CLIC sessions – see below.

C – counting in 5s

L – number bonds to 10 (9+1, 8+2, 7+3, 6+4)

I – jigsaw numbers (find the missing piece to 10)

C – adding (counting on from the larger number)
