Welcome to Goldfinches’ Weekly Blog

Super story writers this week.

Friday Superstar: Naomi

Top Table: Logan and Alex


Monday 5th: INSET day. School closed.

Cricket sessions for Goldfinches: It is Goldfinches’ turn to have cricket lessons starting on Tuesday 6th June. Please send your child in their PE kit on Tuesdays. This is in addition to their usual Monday and Friday PE slot.


This week we have:

…worked so hard on our final piece of writing inspired by our refugee book ‘Wisp’


After half term we will:

Writing: Begin to explore our new Pathways to writing book… watch this space.

Spellings: words ending in que pronounced k:

Words to learn for Friday 9th June: unique, cheque, antique, grotesque, boutique, picturesque, plaque, arabesque, mosque, opaque

Reading: we will continue to explore questions from the book ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Saved Our Planet’.

Reading homework: Keep reading daily- reading for just 10-15 minutes a day can have several benefits, such as improving concentration and memory, improving mental stimulation, expanding your vocabulary, improving your sleep quality, and reducing stress. Goldfinches are doing so well with this so please keep it up!

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: Monday, Tuesday 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
