Talk homework

This week on World Book Day we talked about our favourite books. Talk to your grown ups about your favourite types of books. Do you like story books? Or fact books? Fiction or non-fiction? Do you like funny books? Do you like silly books? Think about the different genres of books that we can read. You could even give some examples of each type of book. We would love to hear some of your recommendations.


Thank you to everyone who has been logging their reading on our new Boom Reader app! Please ensure that you are reading EVERY DAY with your child and logging it on the Boom Reader app.

Please make sure that you send your child into school with their reading folder every day as we will be reading with your children in school at least once a week.


The children will be tested on their High Frequency words on Monday. Please ensure your child has practised their dictation sentence(s) too.

Where do you want to go?

The kind child told me the hour.

My poor parents need to improve the plant behind their house.

In English this week we have been looking in more detail at our Power of Reading book, Claude in the City. The children have enjoyed freeze framing a scene from the story and using their body language and facial expressions to portray the different characters. We had lots of fun guessing who the children were acting out.

In Maths this week we have been looking at numbers to 20 and related facts. We have worked hard to show the addition and subtraction number sentences that make up a fact family for a range of different representations of number, including part whole models and bar models

In Geography this week we talked about what a human and a natural feature is. We talked about the different features in Buckden, those that have been made by humans and those that have grown/been created by the environment.

In Computing this week, we have started our new topic on ‘Animation’. The children have created the first page of their own e-book, and we are looking forward to adding sounds and animations to our stories to make them more fun and interesting to read!

Thank you for your contributions to World Book Day – the children loved sharing their favourite stories, listening to a range of stories and enjoyed being in their pyjamas all day!
