Talk homework

This week we have started our DT project in which we will be designing and making our own fruit kebabs. Talk to your grown-ups at home about which fruit you would like to use for your own kebab – think about the fruits that you will be able to thread onto your skewer!

If you would like to challenge yourself, please practise counting forwards AND backwards in steps of 2, 5 and 10!


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 the ‘er’ sound family on Tuesday next week. Please continue to practise these over the weekend.

This week in Year 1 we have enjoyed doing our coronation dance and practicing our singing of the Coronation song. We performed this on Friday afternoon in front of the whole school.

We have also enjoyed doing phonics, and seeing just how much we have improved over the last few months. The children should all be so proud of themselves.

In English, we have been continuing with our story The Secret Sky Garden and writing about emotions and even doing some drama. There were some amazing ‘freeze-frame’ performances of our feelings.

In our maths we were continuing our counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, and we learnt about arrays with baking trays. Our columns and rows knowledge is getting really good.

On Tuesday we went to the allotment, and the children had a great time planting seeds and seeing the chickens. Thank you to all of our parent volunteers.
