Thursday 31st March

Top Table: Ethan and William    Praise: Skyla

As we draw to the end of the Spring term, I would like to thank all the children for the hard work they have put into this term. It has been a term of great progression and lots of fun. Our highlight being our trip to Delamere forest. 


Week beginning 19th April 2022:

We will continue to complete our spelling tests on a Thursday and our times tables test will take place on a Friday.   


Please note that our PE day this week are on Monday. Please come to school in your PE uniform as usual on this day. 

As we return for the Summer term, we will be exploring our new English text 'The Last Wolf' by Mini Grey where we will be developing our letter writing skills. We are going to spend time developing our test techniques in reading by using skimming and scanning the text for retrieval answers. In maths, we are going to be compiling lessons together to ensure that all content is taught. The children will begin the day recapping 4 a day to maintain their level of understanding. 



Read Write Inc

You will have noticed this week that your child may have changed RWI groups or come off the scheme to move on to Pathways to Read. If you have any concerns about how your child is progressing with their reading, please come and speak with me so that I can share more personalised strategies. 


Please spend 10 – 20 minutes reading each day. This can be a combination of Read Write Inc and bedtime story books. Please remember the importance of your child listening to YOU read during this time too. 


For the next two weeks we are going to focus on spelling contractions. It is crucial that the children learn to join the letters accurately and where an apostrophe is the letters either side of it cannot be joined.

This week’s spellings to be quizzed on Friday 22nd April are listed in your blue reading diary.


Times Tables 



Please complete your times tables work sheet for this week. Some children have now moved on to learning their 5 x tables! Well done! If you would like your child to progress quicker, please access times tables rockstars to support their times tables knowledge.
