Weekly Update Friday 9th June 2023

Summary of this week:

This week, we started our new learning journey in English. The children enjoyed learning the new talk-story based on the Fable The Elephant and the Mouse. The children learnt the structure of the story and used different suffixes when writing sentences about the book. In maths, the children learnt about capacity. They learnt vocabulary to use when describing how much liquid was in a container (full, quarter full, half full, almost full, full) and learnt to measure capacity using non-standard units. In science, the children learnt about the season summer (what the weather is like, what clothing is appropriate, what the average temperature is and the amount of sunlight each day) and compared this season to the other seasons.

Our learning next week:


The children will be writing a diary from the point of view of the elephant. They will also be practising the spelling of the high frequency words.   



The children will be sitting their Phonics Screening Check this week.



The children will be practising the skills they have already learnt through practical activities. They will be revising money, finding halves and quarters of amounts, time and capacity.



The children will start the unit on Plants. The children will be comparing and organising different plants and seeds.


  • Continue to read with your child at least four times a week.
  • Numbots
  • Take your child’s learning outside by writing sounds and words in chalk or water for your child to read.

Notices & Reminders:

  • Plea for resources: please could you bring in any cardboard (old Amazon boxes etc.) or wool if you have any
  • Please apply suncream on your child before they come into school. They are outside over lunchtime and would hate to see them getting burnt.
  • Please provide your child with a named sunhat.

Spelling: This spelling site is offering the opportunity for parents to download an app with a free subscription.



If you have an iPad please upload PocketPhonic Stories. This is an app that is excellent for teaching handwriting, phonics and reading. You will need to log in for your child but then they should be able to complete these on their own. There are certificates you can print off to motivate your child.
