Friday 9th October 2020

Good morning, everyone! Happy Friday!

Thank you for emailing me some of the lovely work you have done yesterday. It made my day to see how you're getting on at home. 


Letters and Sounds

 Today, see if you can find objects around your home that have these blends:







If you can't find any objects, you can think of words with these blends. See if you can segment the sounds to spell your words.

In my house, I found; stamp, star, brush, grass, plate and pram. 



Today for English, focus on your reading. If you already have a reading book at home, you can read that. If you would like more to read, Oxford Owls have a great free eBook library that you can access. Here is the link; https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/free-ebooks/

On the right hand side of the page, you will see links to the Book Bands where you can access a set of books at your child's current reading level.

You can send me videos of you reading a page or two if you like. You know how much I love to hear you read!

Once you have finished, you can draw a picture and write a sentence about your favourite part.



 In maths today, we would be carrying on with our number bonds to five work. Watch this number bond to five video. I know how much you love Jack Hartmann! 


See if you can find all the ways to make five today, using the plates and five objects from yesterday. We are going to learn how to write the number bonds systematically. This means to write them in order and makes sure that we find all of the ways!

Start with 0 objects on the first plate and 5 objects on the second plate. Do you know what this calculation is? That's right, 0 + 5 = 5. Just like the photograph of my plates I showed you yesterday.

Once you have done that, move one object across onto the first plate. What number bond to five can you see now? That's right, 1 + 4 = 5. Repeat moving one object across each time until all the objects are on the first plate. Can you see the pattern?

Can you write the number bonds that you find systematically? If you think you can give it a try, here is the work we would have completed in class today.



Everyone should have received a Christmas card template in their packs that were sent home. It is a white piece of A4 card with a form on the back. If you haven't received one, then please contact the school office.

We have been having fun in school, learning how to draw different things. We drew an angel and a penguin in school which you all did a fantastic job with. We were going to have a go at drawing baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph for our Christmas cards. The YouTube channel is called Art for Kids Hub. You can watch the videos here: 

There are many other videos for Christmas drawings on this YouTube channel (type in How to draw Christmas in YouTube) so you can either draw one of the ones I have suggested or choose your own to create your card. Remember to draw your picture fairly big but the very edge of the card will not show when printed so try to stay away from the edges. Above all, have fun! I can't wait to see your finished Christmas cards. 

If you would like to purchase the Christmas cards, please pay via Parent Pay by Friday 16th October. Please bring your card back into school on Monday 19th October, preferably in the wallet provided to avoid it getting damaged. 

This afternoon, make sure you have some choosing time like we would have had in class. Play with your toys, watch a film or do some colouring in.

Well done for working hard at home this week, everyone and remember to check the work I set for you next week. 

Have a lovely weekend, everyone and stay safe. 

Love from
