Week beginning: 4 /12 /17

Well done to our Pupil of the week. Although he is new to the class, he is prepared to take a risk. Well done!

This week we have been beginning to look at adding and taking away. We have been using our resources to help us represent number sentences in different ways.

In writing we have created a menu for the Polar Express and wrote a letter to Father Christmas to try to convince him to give us the first gift of Christmas.

I am testing the children again on the following words next week:

every, great, break, steak, pretty, beautiful, after, fast, last, past and their 2, 5 and 10 times tables again. Please keep practising these.

Nativity news: Nativity practise is going very well! We will need parents to help the children to gt ready for the nativity on Tuesday morning for our practise and Tuesday afternoon for the actual performance. If you can help, please let the office know.


Kind regards


Mrs Miller




Week beginning: 27.11.17

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for her risk taking in numeracy. She decided to take on the maths challenge. Well done!

This week we have begun to read the Polar Express. We have used this to help us practise things like possessive apostrophes and adverbs.

In Maths we have been looking at continuing sequences in 2, 5, 10 and 3. We have also been problem solving.

Please continue practising times tables, number bonds and the spelling the words in the white journals.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Mrs Miller

Wk beginning: 20/11/17

This week we have been continuing to work on place value, as well as completing assessments in maths, writing and reading.

In RE the children have been looking at the nativity and have been learning about incarnation.

We are getting closer to nativity and all the children have been practising their parts.

We can not wait to show you.

From speaking to the children I have noticed some misconceptions with their counting. Some are getting confused when counting from a 2-digit number ending in 9 to the next ten and from a ten to the 2-digit number ending in 9 below.

For example:    29 – 30      49 – 50      and      70 – 69      80 – 79     Please can you practise this with your child.

Furthermore we carried out a spelling test. These were the words included:

dog, sink, large, hurts, thunder, afraid, track, bread, bedroom, sketch, friend, Tuesday, middle, fattest, where, fancy, dropped, wrap, hospital, families and dolphin.

Overall the children found these words to be difficult. Please can you help to support them by practising these words. I will test them on these words on the 7th December.

Thank you for all of your support,


Clair Miller
