Something Fishy


Summer 2

This half term we will be working in our special learning bubbles.


We will be practising all our previously learnt skills.

In English we will be writing sentences, using our phonics to help us read and write and practising spelling the common exception words. We will learn about some sea creatures and write about them too. 

In Maths, we will be practising counting to 100, writing numbers in words, looking at place value and practising our addition and subtraction. 



Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  It would be great if you could read a minimum of 4 times a week with your child. Please sign their Home School book so we know the book has been read and needs changing.

Reading is vital to support your child make good progress, to help them learn to love reading and to support their writing skills.



This term, class LB have PE on Monday and Tuesday and class MR have PE on Monday and Friday. Please ensure that full PE kits, including pumps or trainers, are left in school. PE kits will be sent home each half term to be washed.
