Reflective Friday week beginning 24th August

Another busy week of learning in the Golden Treasures class!

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION: We will usually be doing outdoor PE on a Tuesday and Thursday.  On these days please send your child suitably dressed in sports clothes and trainers that can be worn outside.  Children do not need to wear school uniform on these days.***


Revising our sounds and tricky spelling words.  P3s have started looking at their new spelling lists, initial consonant blends. (New words/sounds will be shared for both P2 and P3 on Monday on this blog so that children can practise them at home during the week. I will share some ideas of how to do this below).

Reading the book Silly Billy to help us think about a character’s thoughts and feelings and making our own worry dolls based on this story.

Listening to The Twits, our class novel, which we are all really enjoying.

Practising our handwriting skills.

Writing about our families.

Spelling activities

Revising number formation and practising getting all of our digits the right way round.
