Thursday 7th May

 Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!


What a fantastic week of weather we have had! It should hopefully be the same for tomorrow's Bank Holiday and VE celebrations.

If you have got photos of getting ready to celebrate or of activities you have done at home e.g. drawing, cooking or air raid shelter building please send them in to me and I will pass them onto Miss Anderson. The activity idea sheet and other resources are on the VE day page.

Best wishes for a lovely Bank Holiday weekend!






VE day prayer

We pray for the young people of our own day and for all who will shape the future of this nation, that they may be inspired by those who have gone before them to serve as they have been served.  Amen.

                 Challenge of the day!


How many things can you see that begin with the 's' sound? Can you draw them?


Daily Phonics lesson:

It is great that you are keeping going with the Daily Phonics lesson. It is so important that you don't forget the 45 phonemes that you have learnt and that you remember all the Phase 2, 3 and 5 Tricky Words. 


Remember - Practise makes Better!!


1.   Work out to letter sounds with Jack Hartmann.

Workout to the Letter Sounds | Version 2 | Letter Sounds Song | Phonics for Kids | Jack Hartmann

Jack Hartmann's Workout to the Letter Sounds engages students to use their bodies and brains while learning the letter sounds. Jack will be your exercise instructor.

2.  Practice the 45 phonemes and the Phase 2, 3, 4 and 5 Tricky words with these Phonics Play games.

     Please note that these games need Adobe Flash download to work.

3.  Practise reading Phase 4 words to help to consolidate seeing  Phase 3 digraphs/trigraphs in words.

4.   You say this sentence, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Watch out for the tricky words -                                                  I  hope  that  we  can  play  on  the  grass and  have  a  treat.

     Leave finger spaces.

         End your sentence with a full stop.

      Read your sentence

I can count in 2s, 5s and 10s.

We have been learning to count in 2s,  5s  and 10s. Here is a quick recap video to help you to practise.

Turkey Skip Count by 2's, 5's, and 10's

A fun quick counting review themed for the American Thanksgiving break! It has counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's.

Now use some lego blocks, pasta, Noah's ark animals, stones etc and count in 2s. Physically counting and moving them together, one in each hand. (You could use maltesers as a treat!)

Challenge - Now use this 100 number square to colour and count in 2s,  then  5s,  and then 10s. (We have used a similar                        square in class.)

                  Can you count all the way to 100?

                  What do you notice about the pattern it makes when you colour each number for the different counts.
