Primary School

Learning, achieving, working together

Week Commencing 12.10.20

Hi everyone,


I'm sorry to hear that you are working from home right now but I hope that you will enjoy some learning with us back at school. We are continuing with the story of Frog and The Stranger in English and this week will be writing our own version of the story. We will be learning new skills to improve our writing as we go through the week and I am looking forward to seeing your story at the end of the week.


In Maths we will be comparing numbers and using place value to help us decide which is biggest or smallest. We will also be learning to use these symbols <> which tell us which number is greater or smaller. Like this

39>24 thirty nine is greater than twenty four. 


In phonics we are practising blending the phonemes 'air' and 'ure'. Log onto Phonics Play and practise your phonic skills and have some fun! This site is free, just follow this link:


In RE we will be finding out about Divali, the Hindu festival of light. We will learn how the festival is celebrated and then make our own diva - a small lamp which hold a candle as part of the celebration. I hope you can make a diva at home or you may be able to make some rangoli patterns on the pavement at home. Whatever you do, enjoy it!
