Week beginning Monday 4th November 2019

We are going up to Kincorth Library on Tuesday morning this week to change our books.


This week we are revising our second six letter sounds c/k, e, h, r, m, d. For homework  you can help your child to make small 2, 3 or 4 letter words using all the letters in the envelope at the front of the pink book. You can use the first six sounds too. Please write any you make on the homework page. e.g. hat, red, man etc. Please complete this homework for Friday.


This week our sound is ar.  The children will get 6 words with the ar 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 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 his and her. You may need to help your child writing the number after counting the words together. Please now write each word 2 times.


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




We will continue with reading on Mondays and Thursdays. The children will hear the extended story in school so should still do lots of talking about the pictures and tell you what is happening.

The children will still have the main character names in their word pot. Kipper, Biff, Chip, Mum, Dad and Floppy. Some new words will now start to be added to go with the reading books. See below.

Six In A Bed – and

The Pancake – the

A Good Trick – a

Who Is It? – is, it

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.



The children will be working on number to 10 and start some addition within 10.


This week we will carry on working on multiplication and division. We will continue with our CLIC sessions – see below.

C – counting within 100

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

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

C – multiplication (counting groups to find the total)



Thank you for all the baby photos. The children have had fun guessing who they are and seeing how everyone looked as a baby. I will send them home in book bags now. We have been looking at examples of old toys and finding out what they are made of, then comparing these to new toys and what they are made of. The children have also been sorting pictures of old and new toys.
