Talk homework

This week we have been learning about what plants need to survive. Talk to your adults about the FIVE things that plants need in order to grow.

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

Please follow the link below for lots of interesting Science articles which can be linked to lots of areas of our science learning. Some of our talk homework after Easter may be linked to this website so please keep an eye out for future blogs.

This week in Year 1 the children have been showing off their creative writing skills in our English learning, we gave them a picture of Wonderland and they used their imagination to describe everything that they could see in the picture, including using adjectives! Some children even challenged themselves to write their own wonderland adventure stories and we are so proud of their hard work and super neat handwriting!

In Maths we have been looking at position and direction, including learning our left and right, language such as above and below, forwards and backwards. The children have learned in lots of practical ways and have shown a good understanding of positional vocabulary.

We have really enjoyed our Art again this week where we recreated Paul Cezanne’s Apples and Oranges using watercolour paints, where we really focused on mixing colours to create different tones.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work this half term, the children have made huge progress and we are so proud!

Please continue to read over the half term as this will continue to aid their phonics practice - here are a couple of phonics websites to help your children practise and prepare for their phonics ahead of their screening after the break.
