Welcome to Goldfinches’ Weekly Blog

Amazing artists this week.

Friday Superstar: Lydia

Top Table: Elliot and George


This week we have:

…created a wonderful masterpiece of art together on the theme of ‘Environment’ which will be on display in Barons Quay. Origami flowers, mini beast rock paintings, oil pastel flower designs, mini pipe cleaner butterflies and leaf printing!

Next week we will:

Writing: Use our book Wisp to inspire our own pieces of writing.

Spellings: words with prefixes:

Words to learn for Friday 26th May: illegal, illogical, illiterate, unkind, unclear, incomplete, incorrect, impolite, disagree, dislike

Reading: we will practice answering inference questions about our new text.

Reading homework: We are enjoying choosing from a wide range of books within the classroom – both fiction and non-fiction. Please support your child to continue to read at home for 10-15 minutes daily.

Maths: We will continue our focus on solving fractions problems by using our increasing knowledge of times tables to help us and develop an understanding of the link between fractions and decimal numbers.

Times tables: The National Times Table test is getting closer now so please continue to support your child to practice their fluency and speed in the different times tables.

We are continuing to work on our times tables every day by using games, online games, worksheets and tests in class. Look out for paper copies of activities and games I’m sending home to support with recall and fluency.

I would highly recommend supporting your child to play a game on the Maths Frame Multiplication Check at least once a day to help build their confidence and fluency. 25 questions with a 6 second gap between each one can be tricky and the more they practise, the more confident they will be.


Other fun games to try:




PE: Mondays and Friday.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us via the office if you would like to discuss anything about your child.  admin@lostockgralam.cheshire.sch.uk     01606668270
