Dear Parents / Carers,

Here is an outline of the learning we will be covering in the coming week.


We will be continuing our topic of ‘Neighbours’. We will be talking about how to be a good neighbour. They will be remembering that God loves us and that He made each one of us different with individual strengths and skills.

Home Learning: Talk to your child about what are their strengths and skills are and how can they use them to show that we are a good neighbour.

English and Creative Development

This week the children will continue to investigate what has happened to Goldilocks and will be using maps to find her location. They will begin the week by becoming news reporters and reporting on incidents that occur in the playground. The children will be writing a report about an incidence that they have witnessed.

The sound of the week is ‘ey’ Chimney, monkey, honey

The word of the week is ‘said’ snowmen and iced doughnuts

Home Learning: Please help your child to find out the name of the river that runs through the rainforest in Brazil by using an atlas.

It is important that you continue to hear your child read everyday for ten minutes. Please encourage your child to learn their weekly spellings thoroughly.


This week the children will be completing addition and subtraction problems to 20 by using their number bonds knowledge. They will then be solving written problems and missing number problems e.g. 10 + ___ = 20.

Home Learning: Help your child to practice their number bonds to 20 using addition problems such as 11 + 9 and also subtraction problems such as 20 – 9.

Please make sure your child brings their school sunhat to school every day.

Many thanks for your continued support.
