This weeks learning: 


What a busy week we have had! With our school trip on Tuesday definitely being the highlight of the week. The children were extremely well behaved and the quote "this is the best trip of my life" summed up how much fun we had! Thanks to all that attended our Harvest assembly, I hope you have found an excellent place to put your scarecrow! 


This week our Literacy will be linked to Diwali. We will be learning what Diwali is, who and how it is celebrated and even making films to tell others what we have learnt. We are working hard to make sure our digraphs are joined up in our writing and to ensure we form each letter correctly. Can you play a game of this at home? 


In Maths we will continue to look at shape. The focus this week will be on 3D shapes, have a watch of the video below and see if you can name all the shapes. We will be looking for 3D shapes around the school. What 3D shapes can you find at home? What language can you use to describe it? Have a go at using the vocabulary vertices and edges.  


In phonics we now have got to the end of phase 3! We will spend the week revising everything we have learnt and going over some tricky words. 

Here is a link to phonics play:  


Have you got any books for our 'Look a book' box?

Please also feel free to take a book from the box and return it as and when you like. If you have any questions about this please speak to a member of staff. 





3D Shapes I Know (solid shapes song- including sphere, cylinder, cube, cone, and pyramid)

3D Shapes I Know (new pyramid version) This version includes only ONE chorus at a time, whereas the old version used to do 2 at a time. I didn't like that the old one felt too long each time. I've also included a section about "a pyramid" now.
