The children are beginning to think about their own version of Snow White. Snow White in Nottingham.  

 'Daily readers' is working very well. Please continue to listen to your child read in addition to this. It makes a real difference. If you listen to your child read at home please write a comment in their organiser. If they read four times a week they will get their library card signed and when their card is full they will be entered into a reading raffle. Congratulations to Alberto who won a £10 book token in the reading raffle last half term. Well done to all the children who completed their bronze card and have started their silver card.

Your child will continue to be given target words to learn each week, for a test on Thursdays. Please encourage your child to practise their words. (Little and often is the key!) 


Great App!!!!

Our Maths learning over the next half term will continue to focus on Number - Place value of numbers 0 - 50.

We will be counting forwards and backwards within 50 from any given number. We will read and write numbers within 50 in numerals and identify one more and one less than a given number. We will identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations using the language of; equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least. 

We will then move onto counting in multiples of twos, fives and tens. 

Later in the term we will be comparing lengths and heights and measuring weight, mass and capacity.
