P2/3 Golden Treasures Week Beginning 28th September

Important note: please can children come suitably dressed for the outdoors on Monday (5th).  We will be using the outdoor loose parts equipment in the playground in the afternoon and are likely to get muddy and wet! Thank you!

Another super week in the Golden Treasures class. Here’s what we’ve been learning this week. 


  • Spelling: Team Gold: revising oi/oy sound, for example, coin, join, foil, soil, joy, boy, toy, annoy
  • Team Treasure: spelling words with a k/ck sound. We learnt that the rule is- words with a short vowel sound need a ck and those with a long vowel only needs a k. Examples: shock, block, black, attack, book, seek, meet, croak. We all enjoyed playing a popcorn game using our sounds.
  • Reading- continuing to work on our fluency skills and choosing our favourite characters and why we like them.
  • Reading- enjoying the story of James and the Giant Peach.
  • Handwriting- continuing to practise our cursive letter formation. We have worked on forming an ‘a and A’ correctly this week.
  • Writing- continuing to work on what makes a super sentence? 

Ideas for home learning

  • Spelling: can you make your own version of the popcorn game to play with your family?
  • Choose a character from a book, TV show or film and talk about why you like them.
  • Can you write a super sentence at home that starts with a capital and ends with a full stop? Can you add an awesome opener?
  • Practise reading and writing your tricky words. Here are all the tricky words on flashcards for Block 1-4 in case this is a handy guide for you.


Numeracy and Maths

  • Saying numbers sequences forwards and backwards from a variety of starting points
  • Practising counting in 2s and 10s.
  • Working on number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 and knowing these really confidently.
  • Consolidating our understanding of place value, linking this to money.
  • Working on our doubles to 20.
  • Reading and displaying information in charts: continuing our work on Venn diagrams.

Ideas for home learning

  • Use the links below to hear songs about counting in 2s, 10s and to practise your number bonds.
  • Teach an adult how to play number bonds to 10 Bingo!

Other Areas

  • Outdoor PE- games to help our teamwork and listening skills- Cats and Dogs, Simon Says and Letters and Numbers.
  • Continuing our learning about sound in science. We made our own cup and string telephones to show us how sound can travel.
  • French- continuing to revise French greetings including bonjour, bon nuit, au revoir, and ca va?
  • Drama outdoors- acting out a scene from our class novel.

Ideas for home learning

  • Make your own cup and string telephone at home.
  • Act out a scene from a book or show you enjoy, can someone at home work out who you are?

Have a great weekend, we’ll “see” you all next week at our virtual parents’ meetings.
