Talk homework

Talk to your grownups at home about ALL of the phase 5 sounds we have learned this year. Think back to September when started with ay, ay, may I play. Can you remember all the sounds and their caption actions?


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.


The children will be tested on their phonic sounds ‘ie’ and ‘ea’. Please make sure you practise them over the holidays as they will be tested on the first Monday back after Easter.


Please follow the link below to access LetterJoin, a website which is really useful to support children’s letter formation and cursive handwriting. You can see how we use cursive script by following the tutorials and you can also download handwriting sheets to support your child’s handwriting practice at home.

Wow, where has this term gone? The children have worked so hard in all areas of our learning and have topped off a fantastic half term with five phenomenal performances of their play ‘A Quest for Arthur’ to the school and to you all!   

In Maths this week the children have worked so hard to show us their knowledge and understanding of our arithmetic learning, including their knowledge of addition and subtraction, missing number problems and some children have shown an understanding of fractions of amounts – when we haven’t even taught them yet!

The arithmetic paper also highlighted some gaps in the children’s learning and we have responded to this by making a maths pack which will be attached to this blog for you to print at home and complete if you wish.   

We have had a wonderful couple of days completing this terms skills builder project, ‘Dream Space’. The children worked in teams to design and create their very own dream space based on a theme of their choice. The theme of the space had to be agreed between the pairs and their dream space had to include interior design and furniture that linked to their theme. The children showed fantastic teamwork skills, used their creativity skills to design and make their own dream spaces and they also had to stay positive whilst overcoming any barriers or issues that they faced on their journey. We are so proud of how they have worked in their teams and they produced some fantastic final products! Well done all of you J.

The children have worked so hard this term and we are now moving quickly into the final term of the year! We are working towards Year 2 and the children’s reading, maths and writing will be reflective of this.

Have a fantastic, relaxing Easter break full of rest, plenty of fun and lots of chocolate! We look forward to seeing you all in the Summer term where the hard work will continue!
