Looking ahead to next week.

Please remember that we are not in school on Thursday or Friday next week.

As it is a short week we will not be sending reading books home.

Remember to wear party clothes on Wednesday for our Jubilee celebrations.


The ‘tricky’ spelling words are sent home each week on the home learning sheet, and you can also find the whole list on our spelling city homework page

This week was modern languages week in school.

We have been learning to say and understand the numbers 0-10 in French.

We also learned the phrases bonjour, au-revoir, and à plus!

Talk about learning

1. Ask me what I know about spiders.

2 .Ask me if I know any French words ( numbers or greetings)

3. Ask me to describe the crown I designed.

Independent learning



This week we have introduced the vowel digraphs st and sp and the tricky words every and two

We made stars and stick pictures, learned about Spain and found out lots of interesting facts about spiders.


Our writing prompt this week was the story “My crown” We designed and described some amazing crowns.

Numeracy and maths

This week we introduced the word capacity. We estimated, compared and measured how much water could fit into different containers.

We also continue to work on our numeracy fluency; counting forwards and back, recognising and ordering numerals, and adding two amounts.


In PE this week we have started to develop some early racquet skills
