Week beginning 16th March

This week we begin our All Around the World topic. We are starting with hot countries and will be reading The Crafty Chameleon by Mwenye Hadithi and Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett.




We will complete our work on number bonds to 10 this week and the children have become  very good at remembering the partners to 10.

Week beginning 9th March

This week we will be following the adventures of Traction Man by Mini Grey.



With an action outfit for every occasion, Traction Man patrols the house. Whether he is saving toys (in latex space suit and Perspex helmet, teamed with Rocket Boots); searching the sink for the lost wreck of the sieve (in sub-aqua suit, fluorescent flippers and infra-red mask) or rescuing damsels in distress (in jungle pants, camouflage vest and a bandanna), Traction Man is never less than stylishly turned out and expertly accessorised. He is the last word in heroic fashion flair - until, that is, the day that he is presented with an all-in-one knitted green romper suit and matching bonnet by his owner's granny. Can Traction Man overcome the humiliation of his desperately dowdy new look and rediscover the action hero within or will the burden of the knitted green monstrosity be too great?


In Maths we will continue our work on number bonds to 10. Number bonds are simply the pairs of numbers that make up a given numberNumber bonds can also be called number partners or number pairs. Number bonds are a very important foundation for understanding how numbers work. ... Number Bonds 10 introduces the different combinations of numbers for the number ten.

We had great fun exercising for Sport Relief. We warmed up, danced with Debbie Doo, played the Freeze game, zoomed to the moon and then cooled down.


Week beginning 2nd March

This week we will be continuing our topic Boom! Pow! Thwack! with Super Duck by Jez Alborough and Super Daisy by Kes Gray.




In Maths we are continuing our work on number bonds to 10.


On Thursday we have our 'Come and Read' event at 2.15pm. All family members are welcome!

Week beginning 24th February

This week we begin our Boom! Pow! Thwack! topic which focuses on superheroes. We will be reading the books from the Supertato series by Sue Hendra.


In Maths we will be learning the number bonds to 10. Why are they important? Knowing your number bonds fluently up to ten is one of the foundations to more complex arithmetic such as adding and subtracting with the 'column methods' and mental addition and subtraction to 100 and beyond. They also help with addition and subtraction bridging 10.




How to practise number bonds at home

  • Give your child ten counters (Lego bricks, past shapes, buttons, sweets) and ask them questions such as: What do you add to 3 to make 10? What do you add to 2 to make 10? Encourage them to use the counters to work it out.
  • Print out number cards and ask your child to match them up into number pairs or number bonds (this can be done as a game of Snap). 
  • Write a list of ten numbers then time your child to see how long it takes them to write down the other number that makes up each pair (2 and 8; 5 and 5; 4 and 6).
