Weekly Update Friday 9th June 2023

A Summary of Our learning:

Welcome back! We hope you all enjoyed a good half term break.


In English this week, we have explored our new book, The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry. We have made predictions, explored the themes of the book and written a rainforest setting description and persuasive letter to the tree feller.


In Maths, we have been recapping shape and reading scales. Next week, we will be revisiting column addition/subtraction methods and volume.


In Geography, we have learnt about the seas and oceans surrounding the UK and practised some positional language.


We have also done Music this week and will be practising singing next week.


In Science after learnt the difference between habitats and microhabitats.


Very importantly, the children have had their first transition afternoon to Y3! Next week, we will be doing a PSHE lesson on change and the children will have next Friday afternoon in Year 3 to settle further into the new surroundings.


Enjoy the sunshine!


Phonics- If you would like to support your child further in their phonics knowledge the link will take you to a video showing the pure pronunciation of phonemes.

Please note that children will be sent additional phonics work to practise at home so please do support your child/children with this.


Maths work at home - 

Please practise counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s is also a great support to your child. Identifying coins, counting money and telling the time on an analogue clock are also great things to practise at home. A fun and free way to practise Times Tables and number bonds to 20 is ‘Hit the button’


A great online resource for practising making different amounts of money:




Spellings- Spellings will be given out every week, please work with your child and practise their spellings. Your child’s home spelling book is to practise spellings at home, they need to bring it in every Monday to get new spellings put in. Thank you



Please continue to read with and to your child as much as possible. Reading books have been given out and children can change their books daily. Please ensure that an adult signs the reading record daily and ensure your child’s yellow reading record book is brought into school each day.  

Notices & Reminders:

  • Please ensure that your child has their reading record in school each day, ready for Reading Practice sessions. These sessions will be recorded in the reading records, labelled ‘RP,’ initialled by the teacher/TA and the focus of the session noted: fluency, prosody or comprehension. Comments for the session will be recorded only on school documents to allow greater focus on the child’s reading during the session. Please speak to your class teacher if you have any concerns about this.


  • Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat and water bottle with them in school every day.


  • Violet class has swimming on Mondays in summer term. Turquoise Class has swimming on Fridays in summer term. Both classes have PE on a Wednesday so the children can come into school in their PE kits on Wednesdays. 


  • A reminder that we would be grateful if the children could select their lunch choices at home as this can take a considerable amount of time in the mornings which subsequently has an impact on our morning lessons.


  • A reminder that children can bring in a healthy snack.


Thank you for your continued support,
