Weekly Updates!

Dear parents/carers,




We would like some feedback on how you have managed last week’s communication and language challenge. Please let us know via our class emails how you managed with your weekly family discussion. Did your child find it tricky to wait their turn? Were they able to remember what you have told them? Please continue to do this every week, it could be during dinner or while you are on a walk. Consistency is key!


We’ve been reading George and the Dragon by Chris Wormell this week, below is a reading for you to watch at home:

George and the Dragon - Chris Wormell 


Last week’s vocab is as follows:










The children have become so good at finding ways of defining new vocabulary each day. Please see attached the photo of our Talk Through Stories board, in the speech bubbles you will see how your children are consolidating their learning of new vocabulary by putting it into a familiar context. Please have a go at asking your child what these words mean and prompt them if they are unsure.


This week in maths we have furthered our learning on comparing numbers up to 10. We have looked at number bonds using a part-whole model and used the words more and fewer to compare groups. Over the weekend please watch the number bond song sent previously and ask your child to identify the numbers that are more or less/fewer. Have a go at drawing a part whole model at home and asking your child to partition numbers within ten. They should be able to tell you what the whole is and what the parts are. If you are unsure of what a part-whole model looks like, please google to see an example.


Finally we have assessed the children in Read Write Inc. and are very impressed with their progress. Please ensure your child continues to watch the videos in the emails we send out each week tailored to your child’s reading and writing level.





PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays


Have a lovely weekend :)
