We are looking at instructional texts while reading the book "How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth". This week we have been writing instructions for washing our hands and teeth. We have also been looking at different kinds of sentences (command, questions, statement and exclamation).



We have been working on solving word problems with additions and subtractions. The children have been able to write their own questions which are now part of our Maths working wall. 


Science and Topic

Our  topic is 'How does your garden grow?'. This week the children have been watering and monitoring their seeds. We have looked closely at different types of seeds and understanding what makes a seed grow. If the children are planting gardens at home, they are encouraged to bring photos of their work to show the classroom. 



Enjoy the great outdoors!  

Please bring library books back for next Monday.


Homework (to be handed in on Friday)

 Please go to and login using those details.  Books and activities have been allocated to each child so give it a go!  Please remember to listen to your child read and read to them.  Try reading a sentence in an expressive voice and get them to repeat that sentence mimicking the same expressiveness.  It will help the children with their fluency and comprehension. 



Tuesday and Thursday:  Please consider getting your child a long sleeve top (without a hood) and tracksuit bottoms for their PE kit as sessions are outdoors and it can be chilly in just a t-shirt and shorts.  Please also consider putting socks in your child's PE kit if they normally wear tights.  


Home reading books will be changed on Thursdays.  Pupils will be reminded to hand in their home reading books on that day; they must remember to take their books out of their bags! Library books will be changed on Mondays (Tuesday next week), kindly bring the library book back for next Tuesday.
