Independent learning

The children have been developing a wide range of skills through independent learning opportunities in class and outdoors..


This week we have introduced the initial consonant blends gr and tr, and learned the tricky words into and as.

In dictation we are learning to self assess our work. Green for great and pink for think.

Our writing prompt this week was our learning in the classroom

We continue to use core reading book resources in school as we begin to develop developing the children’s reading comprehension skills, exploring the cognitive strategies of activating, inferring, monitoring/clarifying, questioning, searching/selecting, summarizing, and visualising.

Maths and numeracy

We have been taking part in National assessments.

We continued to explore time and reading clocks.

Key vocabulary included; the days of the week, tomorrow, yesterday, morning, afternoon, evening, clock face, hands, o’clock.

Some pupils still find it tricky to order the days of the week and to answer questions such as ‘which day comes after/before….etc’ Please help your child at home to reinforce this learning.


Looking ahead to next week

Loose parts on Wednesday.

Please return reading books on Wednesday.

Other areas of the curriculum

We had a great visit from the team at Generation Science. We really enjoyed learning about sound.

We learned a little about the Brass instruments of the orchestra. Mrs Cross showed us her trumpet and told us how it works. We enjoyed using a clean mouthpiece to try making a sound.

In PE we worked on our fitness and team work.

We take turns to lead our warm up.

A reminder to please name all items of clothing and shoes, and to check names on items brought home in case your child accidentally acquires a jumper belonging to someone else.
