Talk homework

Talk about the objects that move around your house. Can you find any examples of objects that move using wheels? Explore how they move and be ready to share in our DT learning next week.

Please can you bring in ANY cardboard boxes that you have at home ready for our DT project on Tuesday. Any cardboard of any size (up to A4) would be greatly appreciated.


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 spellings on Monday morning. This will be their final test before Christmas.

In English this week the children have been introduced to our new book, The Jolly Christmas Postman. We explored what a Postman/woman does as part of their job and we looked at some clues in the package that we received and predicted who the Postman may be delivering his satchel of parcels, letters and packages to! We began to story map the journey that the Postman took during his day at work.

In Maths this week we have continued to look at subtraction and the children completed their unit of work by showing us everything that they have learned so far. They did really well and could talk about our learning.

In PE this week, the children explored tag rugby through a game called Cat and Mouse. The mice had to try and escape the cats by dodging, ducking and pivoting to change direction and to avoid getting their tail (rugby tag) removed! They loved the challenge and we will continue to explore this next week in our outdoor PE lesson.

We have continued our skills builder project today where the teams of children created their own logo for their postal service. They used their listening, teamwork and creativity skills today and really showed us what they could do. We are really excited to complete this project next week, in which the children will sort and post all of the school’s Christmas cards on Friday!

If your child would like to send Christmas cards, please make sure that they write the recipients full name, year group and class name on the envelopes so that our little helpers can send the post to the correct class.
