Reading - please try to read for at least 20 minutes per day. If you need more reading books please contact us via the class email address and we will try to help you. Remember you can also access books online through the Oxford Owl Website (Username: willow101 Password: pupil).
In Phonics this week, we will be learning about different ways of making the ‘ai’ sound. We will be revisiting ‘ai’, ‘ay’ and ‘a-e’ digraphs and will be learning about words where ‘ei’ and ‘eigh’ make this sound. Activities will be set daily to help you practise.
In English we will be doing activities around the story of Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. This week you will be asked to write some character descriptions and sequence the story using time connectives. More details of each day’s activities will be sent via the class blog.
In Maths we are continuing to learn about numbers up to 50. Activities this week will cover counting in 2s and 5s. We will also revisit counting in 10s.
We will also set wider curriculum activities during the week. This will include RE (Monday), Art (Tuesday), Topic (Wednesday) and PE/Science (Thursday).
This term there is a slight change and no English or Maths learning activities will be posted on the blog. Instead, a series of hands-on activities/challenges will be offered to allow pupils the chance to complete some practical tasks to broaden their educational experience. Friday will also act as a chance for pupils to catch up with learning tasks or activities that they were unable to complete during the week.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any help or support.
