What is happening in class this week?

Each week, we will let you know what is happening in class and suggest home activities linked to what we are learning.

Making boats!

As part of our science lessons, we have been investigating floating and sinking. We made boats using construction toys. We worked brilliantly in teams and we changed our designs if we encountered any problems.

Spelling Tests 

We will be testing children using the Common Exception Words and spelling they have learned in letters and sounds. We will not be sending words home to learn every week. We will let you know what we are learning each week. Children can continue to learn common exception words at home.
