Term 6 Week 1

Here is an overview of our learning activities for week commencing 5th June 2023.

This week in Phonics we will be focusing on reading real and nonsense words and recapping some of the sounds we have already learnt, in preparation for next week’s phonics assessment. Next week the children will be working individually with Mrs Duncombe to read some nonsense and real words as part of the National Phonics Screening Check.

Our book of the week is ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will be using this book as the inspiration for writing sentences to tell someone about Planet Earth.

In Maths we will be starting a new topic on place value and this week we will be learning to count from 50 to 100, to count in tens and to partition numbers into tens and ones. As part of our Maths fluency work we will be recalling number bonds for 6, 7, 8 and 9.

In RE we will be learning about the core beliefs of Sikhism and will listen to the story of the Milk and the Jasmine Flower. We will then complete some activities linked to this.

As part of Time and Place work, we will be talking about and locating the 7 continents on a map.

In PE on Wednesday morning and Thursday morning, we will be continuing to develop our athletic skills. Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school on those days.

We are also hoping to get a delivery of caterpillars during the week, which we are going to watch develop into butterflies over this term as part of our science work.
