6th - 10th June 2022

Highlights of the week:

The children returned to school feeling refreshed after their half term break.

We have been so proud of how well they have approached their phonics screening check this week.

We started our week talking about the Jubilee weekend and watching some videos of the celebrations. The children shared the exciting things they had been up to over the weekend - Jubilee linked or otherwise. It sounds like everyone enjoyed the weekend and the children certainly enjoyed the video we showed them of the Queen with Paddington. We have spent some time this week gathering questions we would like to ask the Queen and on Wednesday we wrote her a letter asking some of those questions.

Our English work this first part of the half term is linked to our history topic, so on Thursday we became researchers and found out some interesting facts about our current monarch.

The children have been revising all of the sounds they have learnt during their time in school this past week as we have been carrying out the phonics screening check. We will continue with our new learning of letter groups next week.

The children have been continuing their learning of the recorder and are looking forward to playing for you next week - Friday at 2.45pm in the school hall.

In Geography, we spent some time comparing Southampton with the Lake District. The children had some well thought out reasons for why they would choose to live in either destination. We learnt about the difference between villages, towns and cities. Some of the children liked the thought of living amongst the hustle and bustle of a city.

In Maths we have continued our learning on fractions, calculating a ΒΌ of an amount. The children have enjoyed this learning. Next week we move onto position and direction.

Home learning:

  • Please make sure you are reading with your child at least four times a week and commenting on their reading in their reading record book.
  • Please support your child to access Numbots online. It is recommended that children play Numbots for 10 minutes a day for maximum impact.
