Talk homework

This week we have been learning how to partition numbers into groups of tens and ones. Talk to your adults about a range of numbers up to 100. How many groups of ten are there? How many ones? For example, 47 is four tens and 7 ones.  


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.

Look, is that your friend behind you?

In English this week we have been looking again at our Power of Reading book, Claude in the City. We learned that on one of his adventures, Claude found a doctors coat in the hospital and was mistaken for a real life doctor who was needed for an emergency…  We had to decide whether to Claude should lie and pretend to be a doctor to help the person in need or whether he should tell the truth and tell the lady he can’t actually help as he isn’t trained to save lives. The children gave some really thoughtful responses and we decided that honesty was the best policy!

In History this week, we have combined our Reading lessons by reading a passage of information all about King Henry VIII. We used our skills to find out about when he was born, when he was crowned King of England, why he didn’t stay married to Catherine of Aragon and when he died. We found out about his hobbies which included jousting, watching sport and holding great parties with lots of food!

In Computing this week, we have started our new topic on ‘Animation’. The children have created have now created their second (and third, fourth) pages to our stories and we have learned how to add animations to make our picture move and our stories more exciting. The children have loved the challenge!
