9th - 12th May 2023

Highlights of the week:


  • This week we learnt the letter group -ng as code for /ng/ as in gong. We also learnt the letter group -nk as code for /nk/ as in ink.
  • We have had a go at writing words containing the unit 3 sound that we have learnt. We had a go at forming our letters correctly. We have been working on our pencil grip using our ‘froggy legs’ and trying to form the letters correctly using the word patters/rhymes to support us.


  • This week in maths we have been exploring ‘addition’ and combining two groups together to find the total amount. To support the children with this concept we used our ‘first, then and now stories’, for example, first there were 2 children on the bus, then 2 more children got on the bus. Now there are 4 children on the bus. The children have used a range of concrete resources this week to support them with combining two groups within 10. We have used tens frames, counters, cubes and numicon.

Coronation Celebrations:

  • This week we enjoyed celebrating the King's Coronation. The children enjoyed a range of creative tasks to celebrate the Coronation. The children created a collage Union Jack flag. The children also created a crown fit for a King and also created some portraits of King Charles! The children all enjoyed the different creative tasks on offer for them!

Home learning ideas:

  • Take some time to look through your child’s new phonics folder with them and pick out some pages to practise. You can record this as part of your child’s reading in their reading journal.
  • Please keep us updated with how your plant grows and how you are showing responsibility by looking after it.
