Term 4 Week 4


This Friday (17th March) is Red Nose Day – Children can wear red clothes and noses and bring in a donation for this great cause.

  • We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.

Notice board: 

In week 5 we will be performing our space dances. All parents and carers are invited to come and watch. 

Sycamore Class: Monday 20th March @ 1.30pm (in the hall)

Magnolia Class: Monday 20th March @ 2.40pm (in the hall)

We continue daily blending revision to help us apply our segmenting and blending skills to unfamiliar words.

 Spelling and Grammar (SPAG):

This term we will be revising the CEWs we started learning last term to ensure that children are secure in reading and spelling them. You can support your child at home this term by regularly revising these. 

1.     After
2.     Bath
3.     Beautiful
4.     Break
5.     Class
6.     Even
7.     Fast
8.     Father
9.     Grass
10.  Great
11.  Improve
12.  Last
13.  Move
14.  Pass
15.  Past
16.  Path
17.  Plant
18.  Pretty
19.  Prove
20.  Steak
21.  Sure

If you wish to support your children further with their spelling in conjunction with their upcoming learning you could practise these spellings with them:

  • Attention 
  • Celebration 
  • Caption
  • Action
  • Affection
  • Creation
  • Caution 


We will continue to practise our reading skills using the Totally Pawsome Gang. 


This week the children will create a piece of poetry to celebrate the special women in their life in preparation for Mothers Day.


This week in maths we are exploring position and direction. We will be programming beebots to move forwards and backwards, describing turns using ‘clockwise’ and ‘anticlockwise’ and recognising whole, half and quarter turns.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Topic)

In science this week we will be learning about things that are alive, dead or have never been alive and categorising objects under these 3 headings.
